Canada is well known for producing the greatest artists and band. To name a few? Sum 41, Simple Plan, Nickelback, and  .. Selfish Things, with the release of their EP Vertical Love, they deserve a place on the list. We met with Alex Biro at Slam Dunk Midlands and he told us about the EP and the beginning of the band, he also told us about love, he told us about accepting who you are and understanding that being angry is okay.

One week left until Slam Dunk opens its doors. The most awaited festival of the year is not far off. We met up with Rob Lynch who's playing the Acoustic Stage and here's what he told us about his new music, his friendship with James Veck-Gilodi (vocals in Deaf Havana) and his dream of teaming up with Taking Back Sunday. You’re back with your guitar and the crowd. Why acoustic again after going full band? I like the intimacy of just being on my own on the stage with my guitar, I find the connection that I have with the audience is stronger this way. There’s more flexibility with setlists and how I want to play songs, too.  ‘Baby, I’m a Runaway’ sounds like you’ve changed a lot from your previous works.
