POZ Interview: Nathan Hussey (All Get Out)
PropertyOfZack had the chance to speak with Nathan Hussey of All Get Out a few weeks ago for a new inteview. We spoke with Nathan regarding the solo release, All Get Out’s next record, being in the pop-punk scene by accident, and more. Check out the interview below!
All Get Out has been quiet, but you announced a solo album out of recently with no lead time, and now it’s out. When did you record this?
I got home from all the touring that we did this year, took a little breather and had some time with my wife and family. I normal-ed out for a second and then I started recording it in June and mastered it in July.
Did you do this all by yourself?
Yeah. A friend of mine, Nick, is a drum guru around Charleston, and he did nine of the ten songs on drums. I did one song myself. I pretty much tracked everything but drums myself.
Did the writing take place this year as well, or did the songs all come in time?
Over time. There were maybe one or two songs that came up on the spot. A lot of them I had finished.
A normal cycle for any band is to at least give a little bit of lead time before an album comes out. Why did you want to put it out right aways?
I don’t have anybody behind it but me. It’s an experiment, really. To see what you’re capable of on your own. When you’re just starting out you don’t know what you’re doing and get everybody to do everything for you. You think you’re doing it the right way and you need all the credible stuff like a manager, merch guy, etc. Most of those are necessary, but you go head first. I wanted to see how much I could do myself. People haven’t had new music from All Get Out in a while, and it’ll be a while until it’s out as well. Not as long as last time, but it takes a lot of time to do something on that scale. I figured I had no one to answer to but me, so I went for it.
You can hear the All Get Out sound on the solo release in addition to other sounds. Are you excited for fas to hear a different side of your music?
Yeah, I am. I write the songs for All Get Out. I started a solo record last year and stopped. It’s hard to separate the two when I write. So I’m excited for them to hear this. It’s more songwriter stuff. There’s not a lot of continuity to it. It’s not low fi or high fi. I kind of like that. I’m just excited for people to hear new music already.
Are you going to play any shows?
I’m going to get to it eventually. It’ll probably be more regional unless something crazy happens.
Where is All Get Out? You did a bunch of touring over the last year and a half, but it’s been a quiet period for sure.
We did the La Dispute tour last year and then a headlining tour last August. Before the headliner, we cut the band in half. We got management finally. This year is the first year we’ve done things the right away. We went a little too hard, but it was good. We tackled different markets. For some reason we got caught up in the pop-punk scene, which we don’t sound like. All Get Out is making plans to start the next record. We’re taking our time, but we’re not Brand New. Our record has only been out for two years. We’re right on time. We’ve played 150 shows in a year’s time. Maybe a little less, but we’ve done a fair amount of touring. We’ve just hit a bunch of different markets and have done a bunch of different things.
