Interview with Major League (again!)- 10/17/14
Interview by Molly Louise Hudelson.
2014 has been a busy year for Major League. Despite parting ways with former lead vocalist Nick Trask in January, the now-quartet hit the road in February and March for a headlining North American tour. After the tour wrapped up in New Jersey, they entered the studio with producer Will Yip to record their second LP. In May, they headed to the UK and Europe for a tour with I Am The Avalanche and Turnover, and upon returning stateside did a short run with Hit The Lights, Light Years, Brigades, and July.
Major League are now a few days in to The Honeymoon Tour with Mayday Parade, Tonight Alive, and PVRIS, and in just over two weeks, they will release There’s Nothing Wrong With Me (check out our review of the album here). After the band’s biggest Long Island show to date (at The Emporium in Patchogue), a sold-out show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey- a venue they never thought they’d play- proved to be a successful homecoming.
Fans had lined up around the venue hours before the show, and before doors opened I met up with lead vocalist and guitarist Brian Joyce and bassist Kyle Bell for an interview. Read on for the interview, where Brian and Kyle talked in depth about what they’ve learned on The Honeymoon Tour, the making- and meaning- of There’s Nothing Wrong With Me, and the transition to their current line-up.
