Interview by Dom Vigil
Can you tell us a little bit about The Worst Humans for any readers who might not be familiar?
The name is indication enough.
You’ve all been involved in other projects prior to forming The Worst Humans - are there any lessons you’ve learned over the years that you’ve been able to apply to this project? What makes The Worst Humans special to you?
Um. Well. The Worst Humans are not actually defined by our name. Sure, I’ve learned lessons over the years that influence the context of my music. But, as per your question “What makes this special to you,” then I have to say it’s the only thing I can do. I can’t have a job because it will make me miserable to be behind a desk. It’s this or bust.
You guys just released your new single, “What I’m All About”! Can you tell us about the song? What inspired it?
Boredom. 100%, unadulterated boredom.
What would you like listeners to take away from “What I’m All About”?
To not be bored listening to it.
What was the most rewarding thing about working on “What I’m All About”?
Not being bored.
With “What I’m All About” and your recently released song, “We’re On Drugs” out now, can fans expect to hear any more new music soon? What have you guys been working on?
We literally have a stockpile of songs but it’s all about “singles” nowadays. No one has the attention span to listen to an album, so they need their music perfectly curated in the form of a “playlist.” It’s completely absent of context and it is, instead, just a mish-mash of drop-heavy songs that keep people distracted. If that’s what you’re all about then sick. But that’s not me, man.
Do you have any shows coming up? Anything in the works?
St. Vitus. Brooklyn. June 23. War Twins. Modern Whale. Sweet.
What does the rest of 2018 look like for The Worst Humans? Do you have any other big plans?
Something with purple.
Thank you for taking the time to chat with us! Is there anything else you’d like to add?
