Moral Dilemma from UK will be interviewed in Schizo Fanzine #9 which will be out later this year. Here is what the band have to say about the summer 2012. Answers by Craig Temple
1. Please introduce the band, members, history, influences etc.
The band is craig- guitar/ vocals chloe- bass/vocals pasty- drums
We started around 6 years ago in London playing local shows, eventually we decided to record an album and hit the road and have been doing that ever since, touring all over the uk and Europe, playing festivals, squats, venues, you name it we’ve probably played it.
Our influences to begin with span pretty much the entire punk spectrum from bands like tragedy and wolfbrigade, to hardcore like black flag, and minor threat, to generation x, and eater to the partisans and gbh. Where our sound differs from other punk bands is that we aren’t afraid to play off other influences outside of the punk spectrum such as blues and folk. I would say the chess records back catalogue, delta blues artists like son house and bands like the gun club who merged those sounds with punk have also been a huge influence on songwriting and the defining intensity.
2. What is your plans for the summer 2012? Any other news you want to share?
We will be releasing our new 7” bigger cages longer chains through household name records on june 25th, We also have a short tour with thrash legends D.R.I in july and will be spending the rest of the summer finishing writing and preparing material for a new album which we intend to release early next year.
3. What do you have for sale and what's the best way to order from you?
We have both our albums on cd, (one on vinyl) two 7”singles, as well as t-shirts for sale the best place to pick up our stuff including our new 7” is from: moraldilemma.bigcartel.com
4. Let's namedrop a few band for the perfect summer mix-tape/cd
I would say start with some crazy arm, a couple of tracks from the new inner terrestrials album, a few from the new skints album, something by the smoking hearts, some apologies I have none, then round it up with a little james brown at the end.
5. Please, add what you want... Have a great summer!
Doesn’t feel very summery at the moment in London, its bloody pissing it down!
