The Movielife are a band that will forever have their own impression on this part of the music scene, and they will be reuniting for at least one day this weekend. Evan Baken, the drummer for The Movielife, was kind enough to do a great interview with PropertyOfZack to talk about the band. Evan and I discussed what finally got the band to reunite, general excitement for the show, the possibility of playing more shows, and more! Read up and enjoy!
It’s been eight years since The Movielife have played a show, and you’re two days away from changing that. How have the past few months since the announcement went live been for you in terms of general excitement?
It’s been good. We haven’t really been hanging out all that much up until this point, so it’s been good to hang out and spend time with the guys to get caught up on our lives and all that crap, and you know, to play, which is what we used to do all the time. It was relatively easy once we got together to do all that. That was good. No hiccups.
Fans obviously have been begging for a reunion since the day you broke up, but did it surprise you how overwhelmingly positive the feedback was?
At this point, yeah cause it’s been so long. I understand when like there are certain things that happen and people get reminded of us. We had an AP article come out a few years ago, and I figured well that makes sense that people are asking about it because we just had something released. After that we’ve basically gone completely off of the radar and have not done anything. It’s pretty surprising.
