8 Is Enough with WILL PRICE of LONG CLAW – May 2018

According to a recent press release: “Long Claw releases their debut album Disastrophe today, May 11, 2018, via Pavement Entertainment. The album is out digitally and on the shelves of select independent record stores. The brothers of Long Claw have been chronicling their efforts in this full-length release. It’s a series of tales told through song and anthem. Most of these stories arrive by way of battle hammer, sword, and groove. On occasion, they are with soft sad words…or no words at all. Their single, “The Land of Bilk and Money,” fights tyranny while empowering the less fortunate. The powerful instrumentals will raise the spirts of anyone who feels despondent about the status quo of wealthy politicians.” We get bassist / vocalist Will Price to discuss new music, influences, and more in our 10 Quick Ones…

1. Tell us a little about your latest release.  What might a fan or listener not grab the first or second time they listen through?  Are there any hidden nuggets the band put in the material or that only diehard fans might find?

Long Claw’s debut full length album, Disastrophe, is 9 punch you in the gut tracks; 1 ballad about my divorce; and one bass/drum instrumental. Nothing hidden really. Just lots of rockin’ out with our cockin’ out.

2. What got you into music, and can you tell us about the moment you realized you wanted to be a musician?

There wasn’t one moment. It developed over time. I used to hang out with one of my older brothers while he was listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd and AC/DC and Kiss. I just loved that shit. Then I discovered Pink Floyd and Rush. The culmination really came about when I was introduced to Black Sabbath. I at some point bought a used bass from a friend for $15 without a clue as to what I was doing, and taught myself how to play. Later on, I taught myself how to sing and play.

3. Who would be your main five musical influences?

Black Sabbath, Clutch, Iron Maiden, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Rush

4. If you could call in any one collaborator to do a song with, who would it be?

John Cronise from The Sword

5. How would you describe your music to someone who’d never listened to you before?

A cock fight in a running washing machine.

6. What’s the best thing about being a musician?

Probably the pizza.

7. When the band are all hanging out together, who cooks; who gets the drinks in; and who is first to crack out the acoustic guitars for a singalong?

Dude, we’re not fucking hippies. Jeez.

8. If you could magically go back in time and be a part of the recording sessions for any one record in history, which would you choose – and what does that record mean to you?

Black Sabbath’s Black Sabbath. It was the first metal album ever!!!
