Exclusive Interview: SO HIDEOUS’ Christopher Cruz

SoHideousWell folks, a few days ago it was announced that my boys in So Hideous has inked a deal with Prosthetic Records, which means that the distribution of their amazing new album would reach many more people. That’s amazing and I wanted to catch up with the bands bassist/vocalist Chris Cruz to see whats been up in the ranks of So Hideous as of late. Check out what he had to say.    

Hey, Chris! How’s it going, man?
Hey Ross, been pretty good.

Hope all has been well. Dude, the world recently learned that your band So Hideous just signed a deal with Prosthetic Records. How awesome is that?
We couldn’t be happier. The opportunity to be a part of the label with such a rich history is an honor. We now have the opportunity to reach a broader audience and also get our album in different mediums to our fans. Couldn’t be more excited.

Will the label be reissuing your amazing debut Last Poem/First Light?
Yes they are, digitally, on cassette, 12 inch vinyl and Softpack CD on 4/29. The pre-orders went up already, you get it here. we have an exclusive shirt designed by the New York artist “Stormbreather.”

Aside from inking a new record deal, what else have you guys been up to? What’s coming next?
We’re planning a tour in July; those dates will be announced very soon. Besides the release in April, we’re working on writing a new album already as well as doing more touring and getting more merchandise. We want to give people options. We are also always looking for various different artist to add to our cause, graphic designers etc.

I’ve been wondering for a while, as someone who fell in love with your music when you were known as So Hideous, My Love, why did you guys decide to drop the “My Love” part of your name?
We’ve answered this a couple of times, but there was a issue with a film production company, there is a documentary with that name, so we dropped the My love. People already referring to us a So Hideous so it wasn’t that difficult of a change.

Have you guys ever thought of doing any cover songs? I mean, I would love to hear you guys tackle some Smiths tunes myself.
Haha, well we’ve thrown the idea around, but I don’t think that will ever come to life. If we start covering songs, we could be putting that same energy into writing original material.

I know it’s a hard question to answer, but what would you say is one of the most influential albums to you personally?
There are too many to really speak of. Our Influences range from Beethoven to Burzum, or Arvo Part to Envy. It’s really all over.

Have you been catching up on any 2013 releases you may have missed or checked out any of the rad 2014 releases?
I’ve been really into the Heaven In Her Arms/Cohol split. I think it’s with out a doubt one of the strongest releases recently.

Well, dude. I’m gonna end this right here. Thanks for doing this and stay radical.
Thanks man always a pleasure!
