5 Questions With: Uh Huh Baby Yeah [SXSW Edition]

We spoke with rock/pop band, Uh Huh Baby Yeah, last week
during South By So Southwest! We asked the guys about their signing to Revival
Recordings, their current tour, and what fans can expect next from the band.
Check out the interview below!

Last month, you guys
signed to NC label, Revival Recordings. How has that experience been so far?

Revival is the ideal home for a band like
us. We’re a grassroots/word of mouth, family oriented type of band. Revival is
a very close knit, likeminded label. Working with them has honestly been one of
the easiest transitions of our career.

Since the signing, you guys also hit
the road with Lion In The Mane and Dreamcatcher. What has your favorite stop on
the tour been thus far and why?
I think our favorite stop thus
far would have to be Austin, TX for SXSW/Red Gorilla. The Chugging Monkey was
by far the most hospitable venue, and the crowd was bonkers! We still have 7
shows left, so there’s no telling what can happen though.

Being that South By Southwest is filled with tons of incredible acts, were
you excited to catch any artists in particular? Did you stumble across any new
artists that you are now a fan of?
Yes! There were quite a few bands
that pleasantly surprised me. One in particular was an all girl group comprised
of quadruplets. I don’t even remember their name. I just dug what they were
doing.

Everyone has a different way of defining how and when they make it, whether
it’s a radio single or playing sold-out shows. How do you measure your success?
I measure success by whether or
not I’m happy doing what I’m doing. This band, for instance, has consumed my
life for the past 11 years. In no way has I gotten old. I’m not burnt out or
contemplating my next project. We are consistently growing year over year. To
me, that’s success. We love what we do, so we don’t mind waking up every day
and making it happen.

It’s been almost 2 years since
Uh Huh Baby Yeah! released an EP. Is there any new music in the works right
now? If so, can you tell us a little about what fans can expect to hear?

Absolutely! Our new album is
slated to be released via Revival Recordings in late May/early June. We cannot
wait to unleash it upon the world. To me, it just shows the natural progression
of the band, and it touches on some real personal issues for us. It’s heavier,
it’s poppier, it’s dancier…it’s just an all around great record.
