We had a chance to sit down and write out some questions for Rob Warren of THE BLACK LAPELS. We asked about the inspiration behind their name, where one can catch them live and what their hobbies were. 

What inspired the name ‘THE BLACK LAPELS’?

We were under another name up until 2015, the band had changed line up, the sound had evolved, and we thought The Black Lapels had a nice ring to it…

At which venues can fellow Durbanites catch you at?

The best thing would be to check out our facebook page we keep our dates updated every 2 weeks so go check it out at Facebook!

Where do you see yourselves playing over the next few months?

Currently we are focusing on promoting the EP, however, we do have our eyes set on a few festivals and live music venues we would love to perform at.

When you guys aren’t jamming together, what else keeps you busy? (Hobbies, Jobs, etc.)

Music is strange like that part Hobby part Job, if not performing we work on new music and plot our course in this crazy industry

Can you tell us how you came up with the name of your Debut EP, ‘All or Nothing’?

It's just the attitude we wanted to have, getting this project finished and released, you gotta go hard All in and just do it!

Which is your social network preference?

Instagram I think

Which is your most favourite venue to play at and why?

Venues that have front of house PA and backline!!!
