Mysti: Why don’t you go ahead and talk a little about Honor Society, how things got started there, the very beginning of the band.
Michael: Yeah, this is Michael. The very beginning of the band started with me and our keyboard player Jason. We grew up in the same hometown, went through all of our schooling together and we started the idea of the band just in his basement you know writing songs. Through a friend of ours we met Andrew our Bass player and the three of us continued on to play the club circuit in New York City and after going through a couple of different drummers, about a year and a half ago we met Alex through our street team leader. And really, we consider the beginning of Honor Society from when Alex joined the band because it was the perfect chemistry. The perfect combination for us and that’s really how Honor Society was born.
Mysti: Well you guys, ever since Honor Society started you guys have been on the fast track. You had your EP, A Tale of Risky Business by the end of last year I know there were some rumors that you guys might’ve been picked up by Jonas Management, you started doing some shows with the Jonas Brothers. What’s the whole story on that?
Michael: Yeah, this is Michael again, yeah basically you’rr right. Once Alex joined the band again, bands are all about chemistry at the end of the day. If your a solo artist, that has its certain challenges but with a band it’s all about chemistry and once Alex did join the band things did start to move rapidly which was great and really exciting. We did are EP and there is truth to that we are signed to Jonas Group Management. And you know hooking up with Jonas has been awesome. So basically right now we’re working on our record that will probably come out in the Fall. So yes, that is true we are signed to Jonas Group Management.
Mysti: Now less than a month ago it was announced that you were going to be touring with the Jonas Brothers which is absolutely huge cause those guys have obviously completely taken off. How much has that changed the media attention you’ve been getting. Do you notice a huge difference there?
Alexander: Yeah, this is Alex. Since we sort of announced that we would be going on tour like it has been… sort of interesting to see the band grow in popularity. It’s actually been… it’s really awesome.
Mysti: As far as the business goes, have you signed a deal with any labels yet? Are you being shopped around, what’s going down with that?
Alexander: Yeah, this is Alexander. At this point we are not signed by any labels. We are…
Michael: working on our record.
Alexander: We’re just trying to stay focused on the product, the finished product. Just sticking in the studio and trying to write the best album possible.
Mysti: Have you guys been working with any big names on the album?
Alexander: I don’t know if you’ve heard of this band the Jonas Brothers, they’re decently big. Hahaha.. No, no… basically we’ve wrote a couple songs with the boys which was awesome, it was a real privilege for us and they’ve taken an active role in the record so it’s been really great for us. Honestly, we’re really blessed.
Mysti: Now aside from being booked on the biggest Tour of the summer which is a huge start for you guys, congratulations on that by the way. What is one thing you really hope to accomplish with Honor Society that you’re really looking forward to doing?
Michael: Honestly, we just want to take the same kind of ethic we had with all of the smaller shows that we did which is just to get to know the fans and get to know them, you know we know a lot of our fans on a first name basis. And we just hope to meet as many people as we can this summer and for people to leave the shows knowing what Honor Society sounds like and what they can expect from the show and also you know just really seal the friendship between us and the Jonas Brothers.
Alexander: And to have fun also at the end of the day.
