Today, anthem rock band, VISTA, released their sophomore EP Long Live! To celebrate the release, I asked both members of the band some fun questions to give fans more of an insight about who they are, and what they love. An interview all about the new EP is coming soon!

My friends, oddly enough. They inspire me to do a bunch.

Mexican food, haha.

I can turn my tongue upside down.

Are you a bookworm? If so, what is your favorite?
I am not. I’m a video game worm!

I love professional Super Smash Brothers, I love memes, I think the internet is insane and I still don’t know how I feel about it.

Probably cult classic types. Or anything with Jim Carrey.

What was your high school senior quote?
From the video game BioShock:
“A man chooses, A slave obeys.”
