Care to introduce yourself?
Cesar: Hello my name is Cesar Aguiar, I am the lead vocalist and the rhythm guitarist.
Aaron: Hi I am Aaron Gregory Cuellar, Lead Guitarist.
Brian: Hello my name is Brian Ramirez, Bassist and Backup vocalist.
Vince: My name is Vince Arroyo, I am the Drummer for Unsound Sunday.
We're completely in love with your new song "Time". Can you tell us a bit about the song and the writing style behind it?
Cesar: Thank you we are super glad you love our song “Time.” The style behind our song
‘Time” comes from a wide array of styles from all of us. I love old school heavy metal Such as
Lamb of God, Trivium, Meshuggah, and Led Zeppelin, Brian loves Yes, Led Zeppelin, Pink
Floyd, Aaron likes Minus the Bear and The Mars Volta, and Vince loves Fusion, Funk, Jazz and
Latin music. For the song “Time” I was listening to a band called Nevermore and their song
‘Psalm of Lydia’ and I just felt inspired while listening to one of their songs. One cord stood out
to me and from the sound of that cord I came up with an idea for a song. Usually if a specific
sound or idea comes up in my head I immediately begin to compose a song. I’ll then show my
bandmates what I have and then everyone pitches in their ideas and musical
influences/preferences, creating a very unique sounding song such as “Time.”
Where did the inspiration behind the song come from?
Cesar: The idea behind “Time” began when Brian (bassist) had told me a story about his
struggle with a previous unsteady relationship, where him and his partner were always arguing.
Brian also told me that he had tried everything he could to try to keep the relationship going but
it just got worse over time. After the relationship, Brian had a hard time getting himself together
and I told him that the only thing that could really help him heal was to wait and let time take
control. The day after Brian shared that story with me, I was listening to that song ‘Psalm of
Lydia’ and I came up with the instrumentals for the song and then the lyrics based on his story. I
called him and told him I wrote him a song called “Time.” When I introduced the song to
everyone, all of us began to incorporate our individual ideas together. We were all inspired by
Brian’s story and ‘Time’ became a personal song not only lyrically but also instrumentally. I
believe ‘Time’ carries a message to anyone going through a similar situation.
Let's get personal for a second! What are 3 things you would love your fans to know about you?
Cesar: Number one would be that we hope our music inspires people to follow their dreams and
keep moving forward on whatever it is they want to do in life.
Number two, we want our fans to know that we truly appreciate their support and that they are
the reason why we keep doing what we are doing.
And number three, I would like to add, that we really enjoy getting to personally know everyone
that comes out to support us, listening to their stories, and or feedback. We hope to build a bond
with everyone that comes out and listen to our live music. We want to help support them as
much as they support us.
Any upcoming shows in the near future? For a new fan who hasn’t seen you live yet, how would you describe your live performance?
Cesar: We have a couple of shows coming up in November 4 – LocalPalooza at Brew
Rebellion, October 27 at Ritual Brewery, and December 1 for our Album Release Party; you
don’t want to miss this one. For a new fan who hasn’t seen us live yet, all we can say is that we
are very energetic, passionate, and fun to watch. We throw a pretty lively show that include\
dancing on and off the stage, we like interacting with the crowd, and the best part is our
spontaneous ending. Neither the crowd or us can predict what shenanigans we’ll end up doing at the end of our set.
