While Typecast have gotten themselves all over the world this year alone, they without a doubt still carry American Football in special chambers in their hearts.
Fresh off their Taiwan debut at Wake Up Festival, the post-hardcore act sat down with Bandwagon over banana walnut waffles to talk about the American Football songs that made them fall for the 'I Can't Feel You' act in the first place.
It's hard to choose, to be honest. The very first [album], pinaka-favorite ko yung 'Stay Home' and 'Never Meant.' It's a tie between those two. Kasi yung intro pa lang, nakuha niya agad ako.
'Never Meant' talaga. As a guitarist, inaral ko talaga. Magkaiba pa yung tuning nila. Ang weird, pero nag-wowork eh. Kung papakinggan mo siya, sobrang ma-gegets mo naman. [Kahit] hindi ka musikero, mag-reregister siya sa tenga mo. Pero pag musikero ka, mage-gets mo na technical siya. Iba eh. Pati yung timing at drums. Wala siya sa tempo. Ang galing ng idea.
'The Summer Ends,' kasi tag-ulan na.
'But the Regrets are Killing Me.' Pero siyempre automatic favorite yung 'Never Meant,' kasi intro pa lang kuha ka agad. At saka ganda ng pangalan ng song.
Typecast are slated to share the stage with American Football at their upcoming sold-out concert at the Power Mac Center Spotlight in Makati City on August 2 (Friday).
They are scheduled to tour Australia with Valley Of Chrome this September and will release their next studio album soon.
