Incase We Crash
For Fans Of: The Story So Far / Stuck Out / State Champs
With the evolution of pop punk warping the genre into something a little more radio friendly nowadays, it’s refreshing when a band comes along sounding fresh, but still appreciating how great the sound’s been over the past 20-30 years. Incase We Crash are the perfect amalgamation of new and old and if you want a band to get hooked on… well, here they are. We stole a few minutes for a chat while they’re busy with their latest release.

Let’s pretend you’re setting up a dating profile here – tell us about the band.
25-26, Quiet, Low maintenance, love to take it easy, watch tv, make good food
Do you remember your first music-related goosebumps moment? Can you share it with us?
I must have been 5 or 6 years old, my first time hearing Nirvana, that was like the first time I’d listened to music beyond The Beatles, The Talking Heads or Madonna.
If you could pick one artist as an honorary band member, who would it be?
I would love to have Luke Bentham from The Dirty Nil rocking out on rhythm guitar for us.
What’s the coolest thing a fan’s ever done for you?
Right when covid was becoming a thing in March of last year, we had a fan fly out from Winnipeg to attend a house show we had booked. Unfortunately the house show was cancelled, we were heartbroken that they’d come all this way for the show to be cancelled, but that is without a doubt the nicest thing a fan’s ever done for us.
You recently release ‘Anniversary’. Who did you work with and what was it like in the studio?
Funny thing, we recorded it over the pandemic at home! We did have Kyle do drums in a nice studio in NY, but otherwise everything was recorded at home by me! We really wanted to take an organic and unique approach to our sound, and being able to produce ourselves allowed us to build our own vibe from the ground up rather than rely on a producers “go-to” or “cookie cutter” approach.
Settle an argument for us (and the rest of the world)… is a hotdog a sandwich?
No, a hotdog is a hotdog 😂
