How long has Long in the Tooth been together?
We have been together for going on six years now.
What would you say is your favorite experience playing live? Your worst?
We would have to say playing the Whiskey a Go Go, House of Blues, and the Roxy on the Sunset strip in L.A. would be our favorites. While we have had tech problems, sound problems, and all manner of stuff happen when we play live, we honestly believe we have never had a bad show.
You have added a new lead vocalist. What would you say is his greatest contribution to the music?
Adding Anthony as vocalist and Dean on Guitar has giving the band an energy and level of musicianship that has, well magic!!!!!
Who writes your music?
Jeff comes up with the feel for the song , then the whole band comes together and and we flesh out the rest of the song. All I can say again is magic !!!
In the writing process, which usually comes first, the music or the lyrics?
The music always comes first.
Do you have live shows in the near future?
Right now we are at Alien Productions recording with the mighty JK Northrup and are lining up gigs for mid July and on from there.
What would you say is the biggest difference in Long in the Tooth from 5 years ago? 10 years ago?
The commitment, the energy, and the musicianship. The band is a monster !!!
Who would you say is the main influence for the band?
Wow! we could take a month answering this one. We draw on all genres of music. You name it, we are fans of it!!
Congratulations on the release of your new single, “Tomb of the Damned.” What would you say sets this apart from earlier projects?
The energy this song has! the musicianship!! We definitely felt us jump to the next level with this one and that has a great deal to do with Anthony’s vocals and bringing another guitar in with Dean’s monster playing.
What is next for Long in the Tooth?
We are currently recording . we have a deep catalog of killer material!!! dude you don’t even know!!! We are working to get an EP out by the first of July with live shows to follow. We want to share our music with folks and we are working hard to do that!!!
