Everything about False Pockets’ new single “Quarter Life Crisis Diaper” is just pure perfection. It’s catchy, infectious, and feels fresh and new. It was love at first listen and, per usual, I just had to know about this Rochester, NY-based 3-piece band so I asked them a bunch of questions that have nothing to do with their amazing music in hopes that it hooks you enough to check out their music. Are you ready for this?
We’re going to start off with a two-parter: Pick between It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Office, or Parks & Rec. Now that you’ve picked, please assign each band member as a character from said show!
Def it’s always sunny. I think our drummer Ben is the main Mcpoyle brother and Zack is Frank.
Everyone says that every crowd is their favorite but, what city has the best audience and why is it Minneapolis?
Haha wed love to come! Never been before. Fredonia NY and New Brunswick NJ have been very kind to us.
What’s your favorite Blink 182 song?
I’m not sure about a single song. Take off your pants and jacket is an amazing album front to back.
What’s the worst concert you’ve ever been to and why?
Worst? Oo man. What a toughie. Probably some drunk local acoustic guy somewhere haha
Favorite method of listening to music (i.e. vinyl, cassette, 8-track, etc.)
Are you okay with unconventional interview questions? (too late!)
Actually no I’m not. And ill be suing for hardship.
How would you describe your music to your grandma?
“You’d hate it”. No, I’d probably say “its progressive rock”.
If you could compare yourself to a bird, what bird would it be and why?
Oh shit. Bluebird. NY state bird. They’re adorable.
Favorite lyrics of all time?
This is hard. I just thought about this for 10 minutes.
Aesop Rock – “I’ll Be Okay “
“If you want a push
Then I’m ready to push
But if you’re pulling when I’m pushing then why’d you ask me to push?”
What’s your favorite menu item at Taco Bell?
2 soft tacos, beefy 5 layer. Baja blast no ice
What’s your go to pick-up line or a pick-up line that has worked for you?
Hi how are you
If you were to rob a bank, what would be the song playing in the getaway car as you escape?

What’s one thing I should know before listening to “Quarter Life Diaper Crisis”?
If you’re turning left on green, pull up. So everyone behind you makes that left when the light turns red.
I honestly don’t know the last time I even thought about my iPod but, after this little interview with Erik, I couldn’t help myself from trying to dig it up. Unfortunately, I never found it but I think I’ll live.
There’s no denying Erik’s personality and how it shines through with all of these questions just like the personality of False Pockets shines through on “Quarter Life Crisis Diaper” so make sure to check it out and show this band some love!
