Cindy: How did the band name come about?

Cindy: What style do you play?
Simon: Similar to the backstreet boys or NSYNC. Nah, punk with a lot of melody.
Cindy: Winning the Channel V leg up competition last year did you find many career or tour plans arise?
Simon: Not really we thought it would do heaps but the whole winning phase wore off in a few months! But I guess it got us some better shows and some good contacts in the process.
Cindy: Greatest achievement as a band to-date be?
Simon: Probably playing at the Entertainment centre in front a lot of people... as well as the Channel V leg up competition. That was a fairly big step for us.
Cindy: What would some of the musical influences behind “10-fold” consist of?
Simon: A lot of our new stuff is very New Found Glory influenced, but Blink 182 have always had a strong impact on most of our writing. Cindy: Can you tell us a little but about opening the show for Unwritten Law and how that all went?
Simon: It was amazing! We had just finished playing another show that night so we were all pretty tired but to get up and play in front of such a energetic, rad crowed was so gnarlie. It would of had to have been one of the funnest shows... the Unwritten Law guys were super nice.
Cindy: Do you guys have any previous releases or future recording plans in sight?
Simon: We're actually getting prepared to record our EP which will hopefully be released near the end of the year and we're planning to take it on tour round Aus...

Simon: Unwritten Law, Frenzal Rhomb, Mad Caddies
Cindy: What 3 bands would you like to play with in the future?
Simon: New Found Glory, Blink 182 and Boxcar racer
Cindy: What was the last gig you didn’t play at that you went to?
Simon: Um I think Sum 41 at the Roundhouse Uni, Sydney.
Cindy: – C.D you bought?
Simon: Rufio - "perhaps, i suppose”
Cindy: Do you guys have any on or off stage antics?
Simon: we're naturally stupid and make ourselves laugh
Cindy: Where do you see yourself in 12-18 months?
Simon: Hopefully touring in the states! But probably just playing to Dans baby sister so we'll feel good cos she can't give us any crap!

Cindy: O.K have you got any words to sum up “10-fold”?
Simon: We love long walks on the beach and a glass of fine wine over a candle lit dinner.... I really don’t know, but go to our website and find out for yourself!!!
