In the sixteenth piece to our Zombie Apocalypse segment, where we are asking band members what they would do if a zombie outbreak happened, we have GOEMAGOT vocalist/bassist Cody McConnell.
You just played a gig far from home and take a step outside the venue for some fresh air and see a hoard of zombies running down the street towards you, what do you do?
Closing the door and locking it would be the most realistic and responsible thing to do. I may poo a little bit.
You manage to tell your bandmates and people backstage but you notice a ruckus coming from the front of the venue, you can only grab what’s around you for a weapon, what is it?
Matt’s guitar because my bass is too beautiful to damage! Plus, he’s got bank, so he could probably buy 3 more.
As you’re trying to leave the venue, you notice a band member has been attacked by a zombie, do you turn your back and take off or fight the undead and save your friend?
If he’s been bitten, peace, but if he hasn’t been bitten, I’ll throw Matt’s guitar at the zombie. If the guitar misses the zombie, I’ll throw Dan’s drums at the zombie.
You’re about to drive away when a car collides into the trailer, zombies are all over the place, do you get out to detach the trailer or force someone else to?
Drag the trailor.
While on the road, what is the band listening to?
Frank Sinatra and DMX
Along the way you pass a store, it seems safe, what does the band load up on?
Gas, energy drinks, protein bars, baby wipes, premade food, and beer.
You notice that there’s a kitten in the store, do you take it with you or leave it to be an appetizer for the zombies? If you rescue the kitty, what do you name it?
We love animals, so we obviously take it and name it Goemacat.
After hiding out for a while, you circle back to the venue. Upon entering you find your tourmates as zombies feasting on fans. What do you do?
Say, “Shit, they’re eating the only two people who like us, so we might as well break up now.” If possible, I’d probably steal the other bands gear too.
You return backstage to grab your precious gear, but a zombie has it. Forget about it or fight the thing off and claim your possessions?
Realistically, I wouldn’t be anywhere near this venue, but I’d send someone else inside to grab my bass and maybe throw a remnant of Matt’s guitar at it!
In the midst of everything going on you notice you are turning into a zombie. You gather with the other zombie musicians to form a new undead band. What do you call the band?
