How did the band members meet?
All the band members lived relatively close to one another. Dustin lived in Barrie, Ontario while both Tom and Brandon were from Alcona (a small town near Barrie). Dustin met Brandon through some friends and they started a band in grade 10. A couple years later, their drummer left and they started looking for a replacement. They had previously played shows with Tom's band and when he auditioned, they immediately knew he was the one. As they say, the rest is history.
How did you decide on a band name?
Dustin had entered a battle of the bands in high school and he needed a catchy name. He had woken up in the middle of one night with the name 'Final Thought'. When he woke up the next morning, he decided that the name wasn't bad and used it. Final Thought has stuck ever since.
Who are some of your major influences?
Where do you draw inspiration from?
You can essentially draw inspiration from anything, be it girls, divorce or death. As a band, Final Thought tries to draw from as many different things as possible.
You are set to release a documentary soon. Can you tell us what it is about?
This documentary is a way of introducing Final Thought to the world and helping to tell the story of the band through film. In addition, it shows the progress of their latest record by including both interviews and studio clips. Once released, the documentary will be released as a digital download on their website (link below).
Where can people find your music?
People cab find Final Thought's music in a variety of places. Their website has a lot of links as well as a store where you can purchase hard copies of their albums and a variety of other merch. The full record is available on Bandcamp. On there is a little write up about each song to give you a bit of background about them. Of course, Final Thought can also be found on iTunes.
Finally, is there anyone you would like to give a shout out to?
My best friends, Tom and Brandon. Demir Chytil and Richard Rotter who helped film the video for "Love Of My Life". Emmett Morris, Jordan Dean, Cody Meskey and all the Barrie kids. Straight Edge Crew and the list goes on.
