Getting to know Mall’d to Death:
Where are you from and when did you get started?
We’re from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. We first got started way back in late spring/early summer of 2009.
Who are you and who does what in the band?
Dani – drums and sometimes backing vocals
Tyler – bass and vocals
Dan – guitar and 2-inch tape
How would you best describe the sound?
Tyler: Melodic punk for the ADD Generation.
Dani: Sergei Prokofiev of punk.
Dream rock moment (real or not)?
Dani: Playing drums for Katy Perry. I guess that’s not a moment though.
Tyler: I’m not sure. Having our album [Can’t Make a Living] put out on GC Records and a vinyl release [out soon on Bitter Melody Records] is cool enough for me.
Still got day jobs?
Dani: I just got laid off, actually. But I worked at a grocery store.
Tyler: Yeah. I guess I default with the Chuck Dukowski philosophy claiming he’d rather work a day job for the rest of his life than ever become dependent on his music.
Dani: Telling Tyler he could take credit for all the songs I wrote.
Tyler: Telling Dani he could take part in this interview.
