The Heirs are in the middle of their summer long stint with the Vans Warped Tour and couldn't be more excited. Who could blame them? With their catchy new single, "What You Want" out now and even more exciting plans for the future (keep an eye out for more music, tour dates and news) The Heirs are celebrating a busy, yet very fun summer. Listen to "What You Want" and read about the band's experience on Warped Tour so far below!
Interview by Dom Vigil
Can you tell us a little bit about The Heirs for any readers who may not be familiar?
Yes of course, well we are a Los Angeles based alt-pop band. We are currently on tour promoting our brand new single, “What you Want" – out now!
You guys are embarking on the Vans Warped Tour this summer! What are you most excited about on these upcoming dates?
Vans Warped Tour has been such a blast. We are almost into our third week, the sun is hot, the people are hot and its overall a rock 'n roll summer camp we will never forget being a part of.
You're sharing the Poseidon Stage with a bunch of great artists like Young Guns, Emarosa and I See Stars. Are there any bands that you’re particularly excited to watch every day this summer?
Well, you named some of our favourites. It's such a cool thing being able to share a stage with such a diverse group of artists. Everyday has honestly been drastically different than the day before, keeping all of us on our toes.
What do you hope to bring to such a diverse lineup and even stage this year?
We are hoping to create an overall experience. That's the most important thing to us, giving kids a great show and taking them on a journey sonically with us in the heat.
You just recently released a music video for your new single, “What You Want.” Can you tell us a little bit about the track?
Yes! Well "What You Want" is our newest single, it's a very in-your-face song that we created based on a lot of classic pop/rock tracks of the 80s.
The music video looks like one big party! How was filming?
Filming was honestly such a blast, it felt unreal to physically make the world we intended the song to live in our heads… a fuchsia, underwater daydream.
With the release of “What You Want,” can listeners expect any more new music soon?
Absolutely, we are currently selling an exclusive CD with “What You Want" as well as a B-side to a new song, "Lungs" which you can grab on tour this summer. Lots of new music coming after the summer as well.
What would you like listeners, both old and new, to take away from your performances at Warped Tour this year?
We are really just trying to create an experience for all who come out to see us. There are so many great bands to see. Rather then trying to emulate what's successful on this tour we are really just trying to be us and expose ourselves to as many lovely people as we can by being us.
