PropertyOfZack spoke with the members of Pianos Become The Teeth over a month ago at one of their select dates with Converge for a great interview. The band and I discussed the success of their second album, past tours with Touché Amoré and Xerxes, Topshelf Records, their recent tour with Coheed And Cambria, and the future. Check it all out below!
For the record, could you state your names and roles in Pianos? Mike: I’m Mike, I play guitar. Kyle: I’m Kyle, I sing. David: I’m David, I play drums. Chad: Chad. I play guitar. Zac: I’m Zac, I play bass.
So this is your second of three shows with Converge. How was the first one? I guess this tour is really rad to be a part of at all. David: I’m really stoked. Converge has been one of my favorite bands for so long. Chad: Yeah they’re all one of our favorite bands. David: First show was in Richmond. This is only our second show. It was awesome. Just the excitement of being on a show with Converge. Playing right before them it’s like, “Okay. Now I’m really nervous.” Kyle: It’s cool too because I feel like the lineup is… I mean it works, but it’s also a little bit diverse, which I think is really cool.
Were fans receptive the other night? Zac: Richmond is hard to gauge. Our reception every night is kind of hard to gauge. Chad: I definitely saw people singing along and getting into it, but there wasn’t people like stage diving and stuff, you know? Zac: People stand with arms crossed and either sing along or look very confused. David: We feel awkward all of the time. Mike: I think one of the best comments somebody every said was, “Well, that was interesting.” Zac: We were planning on opening all three shows. That’s what we thought was happening. We thought we were the opening band. Then we got there and found out that we were playing right before converge. Kyle: Which is weird because we’re not really on the tour. Mike: It’s incredible it’s just very weird room. Kyle: Makes us more nervous. Mike: Especially when you walk into a venue like this and it’s like, “Oh.. Right. Well.. Two floors, huh?”
You guys have toured pretty extensively since the release of the record with the Touché tour and then the Xerxes tour. Have you noticed a steady increase in interest from fans? Mike: I feel like in some places, yes. I feel like we would have never done as well in some of the major cities in Canada if it wasn’t for that Touché tour. We did a show in Toronto that was incredible. I don’t think it would have been that cool if we hadn’t done that Touché tour or touring behind the record. I feel like it’s a slow increase, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Kyle: Very slowly, but it’s always been an increase but it works out. Zac: It’s hard to gauge that too, because a lot of places that we’ve played, especially in america going in and out of Canada in places we’ve never played before, I haven’t played in a long time. It’s kind of hard to tell.
