Caustic Casanova

Posted on the 15 August 2016 by Orlandobands @Obands
ccThe Heavy rock sound that is ‘Caustic Casanova’ out of Washington D.C has embark on an enormous North American tour for this Summer/Fall. After the release of Someday You Will Be Proven Correct and a 2012 SXSW tour, then a transition from the group’s original guitarist they have gained consistent momentum in popularity…Keep reading for our Full Q&A with the band!Being a heavy rock trio do you ever want to define yourself differently, describe your sound in other words?We usually say we are a heavy, eclectic rock trio with many, many different influences ranging from psychedelic rock, sludge, progressive rock, punk, and even blues. I think our Facebook says something like progressive psychedelic sludge space punk. The common thread running through all of our songs is heaviness and distortion, but there’s a lot packed into our sound so it’s hard to categorize. Someone called us heavy metal B-52’s a couple days ago. We think that’s pretty rad!How long have you all been apart of this group?Francis and I have been playing together since the inception of Caustic Casanova in 2005 at The College of William and Mary. Andrew joined the band about three and a half years ago, after our original guitar player left the band. Where did “Caustic Casanova” come from, who came up with that title?Francis and the original guitar player named the band Caustic Casanova after a particularly smooth talking guy that lived in their college freshman hall. You could say he was a caustic Casanova.  We are all alliteration enthusiasts so we thought it sounded cool too. Now, all of you are embarking on a pretty large tour, how do you prepare for a tour this large?So many things go into planning a tour this large that it’s hard to know where to start with this question. The most important thing is making sure all the loose ends from booking the shows themselves are tied up – bills are confirmed, advance info is sent, we know when to load in, etc. Once we are on the road with limited computer time it’s much more difficult to get things that require planning done so we try to get as much of that done beforehand as possible. Stef handles our Couchsurfing.com account so she finds us places to stay a month or so in advance in cities where we don’t have friends or family. We have to make sure we bring enough merch, like vinyl, CDs and shirts with us, so we take inventory and order more if we need to. We always make pbj sandwiches and bring other snacks and tons of water in a cooler with us. We also do instrument inventory and make sure we have enough back up cables, drum heads, guitar picks, amp tubes, etc just in case we need to replace something and can’t find a music store (this has already come in handy multiple times on this tour). We insured all of our equipment this year before we left. There are many other little things we have to do, like sending out regional emails to our mailing list subscribers letting them know when we’ll be playing their town and constantly updating our social media accounts, that are equally as important too. All in all, it’s many months of hard work doing it DIY like this, but we love touring so we are happy to do it and it’s all worth it in the end. Do you have a particular city/venue you’re more excited to perform at than the rest?We all really love the southwestern part of the country, especially Arizona and New Mexico so we are excited for our shows out there. Those are some of the most beautiful drives. In terms of a specific venue I think we are all really looking forward to playing in Tampa, FL at New World Brewery again. It’s an awesome venue with a great beer selection and we made some good friends last time. If you could jump on any tour  now with any touring artist, who would it be?Queens of the Stone Age or Melvins – equal parts amazing music and goofy personalities. It would be awesome to see them perform every night and then make silly videos with them. Is there anything else you would like to tell our Orlando Reader’s?Come to our show at Will’s Pub on Thursday, September 15th and say hi! To find out more on the band and/our dates: http://causticcasanova.com/caustic-casanova-is/
