New Projects? Endless State is a solo project by N.Ireland musician Gary Colbert.A former drummer of N.Irish band Novice, who split up back in 2012..I decided to go solo in 2017 after a couple of projects failed to get off the ground.. influences range from the punk/new wave scene of the late 70s/early 80s and the synth sound of bands like Depeche Mode and Human League..mixed with a tinge of Goth.
Top 5 Influences? My top 5 influences would be Depeche Mode,Adam and the Ants,Siouxsie and the Banshees,The Cure And Nirvana..I grew up in late 70s/early 80s Britain, the punk scene was just ending and synthesizers had takin over..it was an exciting time for music!! I love everything about the 80s..even the cheesy stuff!! Lol
New Projects? I’m currently working on a new Album which will be the follow up to ‘This Trust Thing ‘ which came out at the start of this year..I’m also working on a covers EP which will consist of four 80s covers and two brand new originals..which should be out before Xmas!! I’m constantly working on new material and always coming up with new ideas!!
What got you into music? As a child I spent a lot of time at my Grandparents house as my parents both worked,our family is really big and my uncles and aunts where all into different music,so I got introduced to lots of cool music and quickly fell in love with it all..it was a no brainier that I’d be involved in it when I got older..I got my 1st drum kit for Xmas one year and it went from there!!
Anything to tell your fans? One thing I’d tell my fans would be Thank You from the bottom of my heart for all your awesome support!! It was extremely daunting going solo after 20 yrs behind the drums hidden away at the back, with no clue how to produce music..it’s been a massive learning curve for me and an absolute blast!! So Thank you all again..when I started this I would’ve been happy if one person liked what I was doing, so this is beyond mind blowing!!
Biggest Goals for 2021? My biggest goals for 2021 is to connect with even more people out there and release my new album, which will be called ‘End Of Days’ early 2021
