With the inaugural Knight & Day Festival at Kryal Castle in Ballarat just around the corner, HEAVY felt it appropriate to recognize some of this countries finest up and comers by asking them a few questions and tips.

To be held on December 30 and 31, Knight & Day features recognizable names such as Parkway Drive, Polaris, Thy Art Is Murder and Clowns, but how many of you REALLY know some of the other acts such as Diamond Construct, Future Static, Justice for The Damned, Trophy Eyes or Windwaker?

How about Paperweight, Terra, The Beautiful Monument, Void Of Vision or To The Grave?

These guys are all the next generation of Australian music, and strongly believing that HEAVY decided to reach out with a few Q & A’s to see what they have to say about a number of interesting and a few more trivial, but important, things.

Today we focus on Melbourne pop/punk outfit youngsters Paperweight.

HEAVY: You are officially part of history, playing at one of Australia’s newest festivals on the first line-up.
That’s pretty cool, even if you never play again!

Paperweight: Absolutely! We are really grateful to be part of Knight & Day. Not often you get to be part of an
incredible all-Australian festival… in a freakin’ castle. Destroy All Lines have outdone themselves!

Knight & Day is held over December 30 and 31. Would you rather be playing or partying the New Year in on December 31?

Por qué no los dos?! da da da da da We’d definitely rather be playing… but pretty much everyone we know is going to be at Knight & Day, so it’s going to be a giant party anyway!!!

Festivals generate a great party vibe anyway, but this one should be pretty special…

Not gonna lie, I will probably shed a tear or two. First big festival in 2 years, we’re actually playing it AND we get to watch Parkway for our first hour of 2022 – it’s going to be the most epic of new
years’!

Which of the other bands on the line-up are you most looking forward to playing with?

We’re just stoked to be playing with a bunch of our mates – Terra, Catholic Guilt, Clay J Gladstone, Future Static… also super excited for Parkway Drive – saw them at Good Things 2019 and their stage show is legitimately mind-blowing.

Who do you think will be the biggest pranksters?

PAPERWEIGHT

Do bands actually pre-plan jokes on other bands, or are they more a product of opportunity?

If the prank is good enough, pre-planning can go a long way! But spontaneous pranks are usually the best.

Just say you are performing on December 31 and your last song finishes at midnight. What song are you playing to welcome in the new year?

If it were one of our songs? Probably The Kids On The Ground… shout out to the ‘rona “this tiiiime you won’t stop me now!” If we could pick any song? We Are The ChampionsQueen. Fitting that we sing Queen… in a castle.

Two day festivals aren’t easy work for the bands or punters. Firstly, what survival tips would you give the fans?

Make sure you wear sunscreen, stay hydrated, bring cash in case, bring a power bank, and leave your location on so your Mum knows where you are.

What about other bands and yourselves?

Well this is actually our first festival (and third show ever) so we’d be keen to read what tips the other bands have to give…!

What plans does your band have heading into 2022?

We have a cheeky tour booked and a few new releases to look forward to… it’s going to be a busy year in camp paperweight!
