Exclusive HorrorNews.net Interview w/ Matt Tybor (The Bunny)
Musical Group : The Bunny The Bear
Â How was THE BUNNY THE BEAR created?
The Bunny: I started the band in the beginning of 2008, on quite the random impulse, actually. Out of nowhere I felt the need to start writing some fun music; I could freely experiment with and call it “The Bunny The Bear”. What made me think running around a stage in a plastic Bunny mask? No clue. But I ran with it. Haha.
How would you describe the music of THE BUNNY THE BEAR?
The Bunny: Even as the writer I have a hard time with that. I say we’re a weird ass experimental band, blending a handful of genres and doing things a tad different than others out there today. Yea, I suppose we can be considering many different things but nothing seems to sound or feel right when it comes to this music.
Who are your major musical influences?
The Bunny: My man musical influences come from my brain, emotions and life in general. As for band influences, I listen to bands like Brand New, Chicago, Manchester Orchestra… Stuff like that. I don’t really see much of that style in my writing, it’s weird.
Tell us about the theatrical aspect of your stage show?
The Bunny: I think the masks bring a tad of that to the table. Aside from that, I just think the way we hit the stage with nothing left to lose nightly, adds a lot of the wacky theatrics were known for. You never know what one of us is randomly going to do during a set haha.
It can become more of a “show” at times.
Who or what is your inspiration as it relates to the theatrics?
The Bunny: Anything we do, wacky or theatrically on stage is straight from our current emotions, nothing rehearsed or taken purposely from an outside source.
Â Do you have a favorite venue?
The Bunny: Probably the Roundhouse in, I believe, London.
Â Are you guys horror movie fans? I hope. The Bunny: We definitely all are crazy horror movie fans. Check out our latest music video for â€śLonelyâ€ť and you will see that we love blood and guts!
Â What are some of your favorite horror films?
The Bunny: Cannibal Holocaust has to be one of my all time favorites, in general I love a lot of older horror movies, but I definitely keep up with all newer ones.
Â Whatâ€™s next
The Bunny: Going to have a cigg then off to take over the world! We are heading out to support Modern Day Escape with our label-mates Dr. Acula on the Under The Gun Tour.
