I don’t think I’ll ever get used to receiving emails that start with “We’ve been reading your blog for over a year now and really love it”. The second I saw that intro in an email from The MOOD, I was in love but then I took a listen to their brand new song “Drive Me Crazy” and that love turned into an obsession. Not the creepy kind of obsession, but the kind of obsession where I just had to know more about this amazing band so…

What’s your go-to coffee order?

Ludwig: A quick Espresso at Lunch. Preferably in Florenz Italy. 

What’s the best concert you have ever been to and why?

Ludwig: The supporting Act ‘The Fever 333’ at a ‘Bring Me The Horizon’ concert just absolutely killed it at this show. Their lead singer even climbed up a steel beam all the way up under the roof of the concert hall. The energy was absolutely crazy. ‘Bring Me The Horizon’ were OK, but ‘The Fever 333’ totally stole their show.

When playing Monopoly- who is the banker, who is what “icon”, who is the first to flip the board, etc

Emanuel: I flip the Board so fast i don’t even know who has which item.. but if I could choose one I would take the boot because i kickass 

Everyone says that every crowd is their favorite but, what city has the best audience and why is it Minneapolis, Minnesota?

Ludwig: If feel like the home crowd is always the best. It’s where people might even know you personally. So gotta say Munich 

What’s a new hobby you have taken up during quarantine? If no hobby, is there a random TV show that you binged/ have a very strong opinion on?

Emanuel: We started this Band during Corona after we finished binge-watching Too Hot Too Handle. 

Did Matt Skiba help or hurt Blink 182? Or, if you have no opinion, that’s fine too (although I’ll absolutely be judging you)! 

Emanuel: Blink 182 was the perfect combination of shitty with Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus, and Travis the dog Barker. So yes he kinda did. 

Are you okay with unconventional interview questions? (too late!)

Ludwig: Who gives a crap about boring standard interview questions. I way prefer these unconventional ones. 

What’s the worst concert you’ve ever been to and why?

Matthias: Bausa, played the same song 3 times because out of other bangers 

If you could compare yourself to a bird, what bird would it be and why?

Ludwig: Funny you would ask that. My last name is Vogl, which is German for bird. Also, I just wrote a song called Hummingbird so right now I’d say I’m a Hummingbird. 

Favorite lyrics of all time? (it can be a full song, a phrase, etc. just please let me know who it is and what song!)

Matthias: Simple man Lynyrd Skynyrd

Emanuel:  ‘I tried to fuck a fuckin pirate but I found a dog’. You know which band this is I guess. 

If you were to rob a bank, what would be the song playing in the getaway car as you escape? 

Emanuel: ‘The Ketchup Song’. Get It? 

Favorite method of listening to music (i.e. vinyl, cassette, 8-track, etc.)?

Matthias: I just got a new record player for my birthday, so…Vinyl. 

What’s one thing I should know before listening to “Drive Me Crazy”?

Emanuel: Ed Sheeran asked us, if he could sing this song, but we said ‘nah’ 🙂

Funny, charming, and talented? Yeah, The MOOD are the full package so make sure to check out their new single “Drive Me Crazy” and show them some love!
