Feature: “If I…” with Next Stop Atlanta

For Preston Pop Punk quartet Next Stop Atlanta, 2012 was a great year which saw the bands sophomore release, ‘The Things You Do Best’ receiving superb feedback and also saw the band begin work on their début full-length.

However 2013 promises to be even better for the band with a new single (‘Get In The Van’) in the works and a co-headline tour alongside Everybody Looks Famous taking place next month.

The band made up of vocalist Georgia Peters, guitarist Nik Taylor, bassist Blake Sale and drummer Richard Green, took some time out from writing new material and preparing for the tour to take part in Already Heard’s “If I…" questionnaire where they told which member of the Rat Pack they’d like to play with, which Jimmy Eat World album they wish they had written and more.

If your band would like to be featured as part of “If I…” full details can be found here.

If I could re-record one song it would be…
Next Stop Atlanta: When we first started out we wrote a song called ;Another Missed Chapter’. It’s a great song but we only got to demo it and not put it out on a record.

If I could re-live one tour/show it would be…
NSA: Supporting Status Quo infront of eight thousand people. That was incredible.

If I had the chance to play one venue it would be…
NSA: Manchester Academy 1 – with fake NSA merch outside the venue.

If I could play with one band it would be…
NSA: Foo Fighters.

If I wasn’t playing music, I would be…
NSA: Flipping burgers.

If I could have written any song it would be…
NSA: ‘Escape Artists Never Die’ – Funeral For A Friend.

NSA: Groezrock!

If I could organise my own festival, the bands playing would be…

If I could play any other instrument, it would be…

If I could give one piece of advice to a new band, it would be…
