After the release of their debut album back in November, I thought it would be a good opportunity to catch up with the band about all things music.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself? Where are you from and how did you all meet?
We’re from all over the country, literally. Jack and Ric knew each other from powerlifting
in London and we met Billy & Owen through JoinMyBand
Where did the name Orbital Junction come from?
Coming up with a band name that we all agreed on is probably the hardest thing we’ve
ever done. It took probably weeks of suggestions being shot down. I think eventually
someone was like “how about orbital something?” and then Billy got the junction bit from going through Clapham Junction.
If you had to sum up each band member with one word, what would you say?
You recently released your debut album Egos & Instincts. What does this mean to you as a band?
It’s an important milestone for us! It’s a sign of things to come and a testament to our fans that have supported us along the way, especially with the virus doing it’s best to screw us over at every turn.
What is the one song that has a special place in each band member’s heart?
I think we’d all say Green Man.
Who produced this? How was working with them?
We worked with Ian from Emeline Studio in Whitstable. Very thorough but relaxed dude
with some great ideas. He never ate the jellied eels though.
The video for Creep is very well made. Was it fun to make?
To be fair – all the credit goes to Andy from Very Metal Art, he did a killer job on this. Would highly recommend him!
Are there any plans to go on tour (once it is safe to do so)?
Yes sir. Keep your eyes peeled!
How have you been keeping busy during lockdown?
We’ve been writing and demoing some new material which we are very very proud of, it
won’t be long until we’re back in the studio recording number two.
Where can we find out more about you?
Bandcamp, Instagram, Facebook, Spotify. All the usual places. I think we’ve got a website in the works too.
Anything else you would like to tell us?
Thank you for the interview! Oh yeah actually we do, PLEASE BUY OUR MERCH!!
