Warthog playing at Deathmatch NYC I Photo: Joseffer

Thrasher has a new interview up with Warthog, the New York based band who played at the NYC Deathmatch. Chris Hansell took some time to talk about the event, skating and their new EP. Check out Thrasher for the full interview, but for those of you with short attention spans, below is a pretty solid takeaway for you.

How does New York influence your music?
Almost all of us grew up in close proximity to the City. I’ve never lived anywhere else. I don’t really plan to. New York has had a great crew of people doing new and exciting things, almost always, and that is a constant source of inspiration to me. It’s hard to get away with being lazy here.
