Questions on The Go | Turkey Vulture

We go to ask the Connecticut heavy music duo a few questions on the go.

Welcome to Metal Digest!

Please describe the band in a single sentence.

As one listener put it, “A little bit punk, a little bit metal, 100% kick ass.”

What’s your latest project and what are you working on right now?

Turkey Vulture is releasing an EP, Twist the Knife, on January 14, 2022.  We’ve also got a music video for the song “She’s Married (But Not to Me)” in the editing process, and a couple shows coming up.

How do you want people to feel when they listen to your music?

Angry and empowered!  Don’t let The Man keep you down.

Major influences: Who put you on this path?

Misfits, Social Distortion, Johnny Cash, Dopethrone, Graves at Sea, Bruce Springsteen.  How’s that for a diverse list? :p

If you had to flee the country as a band, where would you choose to live?

I visited Amsterdam several years ago and I think it would be really cool to have band practice on a houseboat — or maybe we’d just get seasick, IDK!  I also wouldn’t mind moving to Canada to have a year of paid maternity leave.  The United States doesn’t care about things like that…

What’s the ‘wow factor’ that makes YOU decide which songs to keep, record and release?

We’ve recorded almost everything so far!  It’s more about how many songs we can afford to track.  We try to get a variety of sounds on each release, so the songs each have their own unique vibe.

What’s the most hilarious band memory you can think of?

During our recent music video shoot, our friend who was directing had us do a “seductive” take.  Let’s just say all that footage is going straight in the trash!  Seductive is not part of our vocabulary…

What would be the title of the band’s biography?

Turkey Vulture: Not Seductive

What’s the next milestone you’d like to achieve as a band?

We’d like to sell out of all our Twist the Knife CDs!  Grab one on bandcamp: https://turkeyvulture.bandcamp.com/album/twist-the-knife

Until we meet again,

Chelf
