Alter The Press: Why should Alter The Press! readers check you out?
Live It Out: We think we are a really fun band to see and hang with. We're all about the good times because even if you don't like our music,we can still party it up and let you snake a few cold cruisers.

ATP: What's the story behind the band?
LIO: We all were in equally shitty bar bands, and one night, a huge bar brawl broke out. I'm talkin' like 30 people, bro. And we were the only ones who survived. Live it Out is our tribute to the ones that had fallen that night. Actually, 3 of us (Seth, Ted, and Ryan) have been in bands together over the years. We started jamming again together in January in 2010 to try and get the "ol band back together" and weren't really feeling it. So Ted got on the drums since he was originally playing guitar and we wrote "I Like You, Temporarily" with just the 3 of us with Seth on guitar. We got Anthony on bass a few weeks later who we knew from Ryan playing in bands with him over the year. Then we got Brandon in July after recording our EP.

ATP: Single highlight as a band so far?
LIO: The first time we looked out to see people screaming our lyrics back into my face.

ATP: What are your plans for the 12 months?
LIO: Record, tour, and more.

'Little Bear, Big Forest. EP' by Live It Out is available now through Bandcamp.
