We are Klashing Black, a six piece band from Ohio. We play original Alt Rock/Indie Rock music, and are inspired by Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, and the Killers to name a few. With these inspirations, we try to convey as much energy as possible within every live show and plan to make it big with our original material.
As always for F&F Open Mic we asked the band five of our favorite questions and we let them tell their own story! Check out the questions below. For the best Open Mic experience make sure you listen to their tracks while reading.
1) What story are you trying to tell as a band?
We are trying to get the message across that you don't have to do a "normal" job to live life. We want to make success with happiness, and spread our music to as many people as possible in hopes to uplift and help as many people as we can.
2) Who, if anyone, has been your biggest supporter/ mentor.
Our families have always been super supportive. While our dream of being in a band as a living may seem far fetched, our families are our rocks because they believe in us 110% and are confident that we will succeed, which pushes us even further. We are beyond grateful for them.
3) Why did you decide to start a band together?
We each wanted to make music for a living and when we came together, we melded in a great way. There's something about our charisma between the six of us that is second to none in our opinion. Through our music we've become the very best of friends and brothers.
4) How do you plan to grow your popularity?
We plan on touring or gigging as much as possible, playing any show we can get, and branching out of Ohio as much as we can. Also, we plan on promoting via social media to be more connected with fans. Finally, we believe doing physical press is still very important in today's digital age, so the more event posters hung around the town where we play, the better!
5) If you could have a billboard anywhere on the planet where would it be and what would it say?
We would probably put it in Times Square, and it would say "Help us make our dream come true, and we'll do the same for you".
