Kill Your Stereo recently conducted an interview with WARBRAIN bassist Kain McWaters and guitarist Josh Manitta.
Start off by stating your name, your role in the band, and your favourite record released so far this year?
Kain: Kain McWaters, bass and currently driving, and Cleave – The Circle EP.
Josh: Josh Manitta, guitar and currently the van DJ, and Black Breath – Sentenced To Life.
As I type this you are on your way to Coffs Harbour for the first show of the tour with Xibalba. How are excited are you for the tour?
Josh: It’s been a while since we have hit the road for real and as a five piece so we are really excited for this tour. We are driving through some shitty Sydney weather at 6:00am right now but this is our jam. Overnight drives and less then desirable weather comes with the territory I guess but we couldn’t be happier.
Is there anything in particular that you are looking forward to with this tour?
Kain: Sledding in Coffs, hitting the beach and eating mad amounts of food. The thing we probably look forward to the most is eating at our favorite joints around the country.
You’re playing with quite a few great local bands on this tour, is there any in particular that you are looking forward to watching?
Kain: Definitely looking forward to seeing Shackles from Byron Bay, Search and Destroy from Adelaide, Endless Heights from Sydney and Tim’s bands Outsiders Code and Thorns.
Since Neil is overseas at the moment, you have Diaz from Endless Heights filling in on drums for you on this tour. What made you decide to get Diaz to fill in?
Josh: We have never been about getting the best drummer or guitarist for this band. We don’t really care as along whoever we get is a mate, can hang out and get along with us and it just so happens Diaz is a sick drummer also. So the choice was obvious for us. He is a baby also so we can make him do all the shitkicker jobs for us, which is cool.
