Manila fans had their hearts broken by the news of A Rocket To The Moon calling it quits several months ago. As a final hurrah, Pulp Live World brought them to Manila for a farewell set at one of the biggest music fests of the year, Bazooka Rocks II. PhilippineConcerts.com got a chance to have a little Q&A with the band’s drummer, Andrew Cook on BRF, the breakup, and the next big adventure:
1. It’s been a few years since you were first here for LIV5 at the Ayala Malls. How do you guys feel about returning for Bazooka Rocks II and sharing the stage with so many of your fellow bands?
We are thrilled. It’s always fun to play with friends like All Time Low. The fans here are the best so we’re happy to be back.
2. Pulp has strung together an amazing lineup of bands for tonight’s music fest. Which band’s set are you most excited for?
Probably Anberlin. Their drummer is really fun to watch.
3. It’s quite a bittersweet experience for your Manila fans, mixing the excitement of seeing you again at Bazooka Rocks and the sadness of it being a farewell set. What is your message to all the fans who are coming to see you today?
Our message is quite simply thank you. Having a fanbase like the one we have here is something we’ve never dreamed of having. We are still in awe of the support here.
ON THE END OF AN ERA
1. Fans everywhere were heartbroken by the news of ARTTM wrapping up a solid seven years of music together. What would you say is the main reason you decided it was time to bring this chapter of your lives to a close?
We just needed a chance to step away and clear our heads. Things didn’t go so well with this last record and it basically took the wind out of our sails.
2. Over the years, you’ve seen the world and played countless shows. Looking back, if you each had to pick one moment that was the most memorable or meaningful to you, what would it be?
Last night when we walked onstage for the meet and great at Mall of Asia. I still have goosebumps from it.
