Sounds ripped from cassettes & CDs found in immigrant-run mom & pop stores. Deconstructed icons. Field recordings. Sonic mayhem from the far corners of the internet.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Gary:

Yes, please do ask questions!
  7:31pm M:

have any of you guys studied music? not necessarily as an academic major
  7:32pm M:

If you couldn't be successful musicians anymore "God forbid", what would you be doing?
  7:37pm Sara:

not a question, but can't wait for the shows in Canada! it's going to be awesome
  7:40pm Nour:

If making music and performing is no longer beneficial to you, financially, family wise, etc., would you still do it for the fans?
  7:40pm Nour:

Where do you see your band in 5 years?
  7:41pm Nour:

Do you plan on making meets and greets in Egypt?
  7:42pm Nour:

Are your families supportive of your music?
  7:42pm Nour:

Will you ever go back to making vlogs?
  7:44pm Amina:

You obviously listen to classical music, who's your favorite composer growing up? And why?
  7:44pm D:

What are the best gifts that you've received from fans?

Is your relationship as individuals more than just members in the same band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Gary:

We'll be back with answers in a bit

Do you think that tough times, like the Jordan banning situation, brings you closer as a band?
  7:59pm Julie:

guilty pleasures?
  8:02pm Nour:

Are you planning to compensate the yet unperformed concert in Amman?
  8:03pm Amina:

Do you get bored of all the touring and craziness of the fans? or the band? I mean when you think of it, if you can go back would you do it any differently?
  8:05pm Nour:

What do you think helped the band grow internationally so fast?
  8:06pm Nour:

Do you feel nervous on stage? What are your pre-performing habits for stress relief?
  8:07pm Nour:

Do you still cook? haha
  8:08pm Amina:

What's your second favorite thing to do besides playing/making music?
  8:11pm Nour:

Do you think you'd still be friends if you (hopefully not) no longer make music?
  8:12pm Nour:

As a band, do you write first or compose?
  8:15pm Nour:

People call you devil worshipers due to obvious lack of research about your songs, what do you say about that?
  8:15pm Meghan:

Sounds great! Sorry I couldn't be there with you!
  8:15pm Nour:

Why did you quit social media?
  8:16pm Nour:

Is there any musical instrument you'd wish to play?
