Arising from the city of Detroit, hard rock/metal quartet Without End erupted onto the scene captivating audiences with their high-energy performances, melodic riffs and shredding solos. Without End released their debut EP Revenge For The Fallen on Feb 1st, 2015. The EP was recorded at Metro 37 Recording Studio in Rochester Hills and mixed and mastered by Kevin Sharpe. “Cryout”, the bands’ first single garnered the band a lot of early attention. On July 16th, 2016 Without End released their second EP entitled Creature Of Habit, which produced the bands second single “Creature of Habit” which again garnered them some early attention around Michigan. The record was produced, mixed and mastered by Nick Reitman at Giza Studios in Chesterfield, MI. The band supported their second effort with shows alongside Trapt, Saliva, and Famous Last Words.
After a 2 year hiatus, on October 9th, 2020 the band released a music video for 2016 single “Creature Of Habit”, which featured the bands new look and line up. The band has announced plans to tour in the near future and that they are working on new music set to come out sometime in 2021. The band currently consists of Alex Osip (vocals/guitar), Chris Silence (Sallans) (vocals/guitar), Steven Schuler (vocals/bass), and Stevie Bertetto (drums).
1. Tell us a little bit about the band and how long you have been together for some of our readers that may not know about the band?
The band originally formed in 2014 and has been through several line-up changes during that time, however the bands current line-up has been together almost a year now and I can honestly say it’s the best it’s ever been.
2. What got you into music and what keeps you going night after night playing?
I’ve always really loved music since I was a toddler, but what got me into playing an instrument and being in a band was Chris. He just asked me one day to be in his band because I was his friend. I didn’t even play an instrument at the time. I don’t know where I would be or what I would be doing right now If he never asked me to do that. I never knew how passionate I would be about doing it for a living, but I’m forever grateful for it.
3. So, what is new with the band?..New Album out? New Videos?
We are releasing a single called Save You on June 4th, and we will have 2 more singles come out before the end of the year. New album will come out 2022.
4. If you didn’t become a musician, what would you be doing right now?
I have no idea what I would be doing instead. That’s always been my problem is I’ve always wanted to do music and had no idea what I wanted to do other than that.
5. What is the weirdest or funniest question you have ever been asked?
Nothing too crazy really. At least so far haha
6. If you can have your fans remember you for one thing, what would that be?
I would want them to remember us for our hard work. I think even when we haven’t been where we wanted to be we never gave up. I’d say we’ve been pretty consistent.
7. On a scale of one to 2593, How good is your new single compared to your last single? (my attempt at humor, but please still answer)
Haha that’s great! Well that’s a tough one haha. Every artist thinks their new stuff is the best thing they’ve ever done, but I’m not sure. I’d say 2000 though. I think this single is very meaningful and will hopefully help get some people through tough times.
8. What do you feel is the best song you have released to date and why?
I think the best song released to date is the title track to our second EP Creature Of Habit. I think it has everything you could want in a song and its just high energy. I still love it 5 years later.
9. Do you think you can get any better as a musician/singer? And if so, How would you achieve that?
Oh yes! Absolutely! We never stop learning and we are always thinking of the next best way to play our instruments whether it be perfecting the playability part or just getting tighter as a band and being more in sync with each other. One example of how we try work towards achieving that is we rehearse with a metronome. It makes us tighter for sure.
10. If you could give your fans one random fact about you that you think they should (or should “not” know) about you what would that be?
Most people don’t know that before music, I wanted to be a professional basketball player haha.
11. You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
Hmmmm… Yellow I guess haha. Even though its not really a color I prefer at all, I feel It’s more of a positive type of color and I associate it with warmth and sunshine.
12. Who are you inspired by?
Definitely Matt Tuck from Bullet For My Valentine. I love his writing style, clean guitar playing and I’ve been in love with their sound since 2006.
13. What’s an average day like for you?
Unfortunately I still work a day job, so my average day is wake up, drink a monster, go to work, 11 hours later if I get off on time then I go to the gym, then by the time I get home I’ve got just enough time to eat dinner, check social media, and hang with my fiancé until I sleep. Then wake up and do it all again haha. I do try to handle as much stuff for the band as I can though while I’m at work, so at least I make some progress.
14. Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans?
The best way to interact with us is to come out to the shows and hang out with us! We love to meet new people and make as many new friends as we can! You can always message our socials. It gets a little hard to keep up with sometimes but we do respond and answer comments.
15. Have you ever dealt with performance anxiety?
I’ve been asked this before and the answer is yes! I had the worst stage fright and anxiety of anyone I’ve known. It was very hard for me to break but the way to do it is to not care so much about what others are thinking and to just have a good time doing what you do. And of course the more you do it, the easier it gets. You don’t have to plan so many things you just feel it out.
16. Tell me about your favorite performance venues?
My favorite smaller Michigan venue is The Machine Shop in Flint. The sound is incredible there both on stage and in the crowd, and its close and personal and all around the atmosphere is great! I’ve seen a lot of great bands there in my lifetime.
17. What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?
TAKE RISKS! No risk, no reward. You have to take scary leaps sometimes in order to get the attention you seek. And don’t underestimate the small things. Every little thing you can do to make your band look more professional and sound more professional do it. You have to be serious in order to be taken seriously. Hope that advice helps someone!
