In the ninth piece to our Zombie Apocalypse segment, where we are asking band members what they would do if a zombie outbreak happened, we have WIDOW SUNDAY vocalist Jake Falconer.
You’re at your house alone, when The TV starts transmitting a warning that zombies are coming and will be in your location at dusk. Phones are already dead, along with cell phones and the internet… What would you do first?
First thing I’d do is activate my house based defenses, flamethrowers, mines and whatnot. Then get my roommates, quickly make our way to my brother in law’s house. He’s got all the guns and swords.
You need to gather supplies and only have daylight to reach 2 locations, where do you go?
Sporting goods store and a hardware store. Fortifications and armor first… We’ll worry about food when we come to that.
You happen across a band member and they are infected but not a zombie yet, what do you do?
No mercy, cut that bastard’s head clean off!! I’m not getting involved in one of those long, drawn out “Maybe he’ll be alright” debates. That’s ridiculous. He’s dead, take his head.
Zombies follow you back to your house, you run inside to arm yourself and can only carry three weapons, what are they?
Well, guns are out of the question, because no matter what happens, EVENTUALLY you’ll run out of ammo. That’s just a fact. So I’d find the strongest sword I can find (something like a machete), and axe and a spear. Blades don’t need reloading baby!
You don’t have time to bring all your stuff, you grab a dufflebag, what do you put in it?
Heavy duty clothes. I see too many people wearing jeans and tee shirts in these zombie movies. Jeans, boots, heavy jacket and a towel (the most important piece of travel gear you can have). Oh!… Clean socks and as many back issues of Hustler as I can find. Those’ll be as good as gold given a little time.
Zombies are breaking into your house, you run out the back door, where do you go?
If I’m takin’ off from my house… I’m gonna try and reach a secure beach or something, at least until daylight. Zombies are terrible swimmers, and they can only come at you from one side if you’re up against a lake.
Would you look to build a group or travel alone?
People say there’s strength in numbers, but usually 1/3 of the people are asshole drama queens. None of that. It’s an apocalypse for Pete’s sake. Focus people, focus. If you’re gonna drag me down, you’re on your own man. Strangers I won’t trust, my crew, I’d trust with anything.
You’re surrounded! Kill yourself or become one of them?
Oh, I’d just end it. But with a bang. If I’m goin’ out, I’m takin as many of them as possible. I’d lure ‘em in close, just walk up to a gas station, find some gas, and smoke my last cigarette. Aaaand BOOM goes the dynamite!
