Critical Mass: Thanks for taking the time to talk with Critical Mass, guys. I appreciate it. For anyone new to Rawhide can you give us a little history on the band and how you got started?

Rawhide: Rawhide have been around for about ten years now, it´s been kind of on and off whit a lot of different band members but now we have find exactly the right people on the right places to play the music we always wanted to play!

CM: I have your 7" "Branded For Life" and think it's amazing! Is this the bands first release? Or is there more material out there?

RH: Thank you! We really appreciate that you like "Branded for life". We have released a couple of demos, the first one in 2002 called "A man who loves whiskey and hate kids can´t be all bad"
We released a demo compilation called "Plenty Ain´t Enough" on Dybuck Records in Mexico. And at the same time as "Branded For Life" on Patac Records, we released the 7" " Build To Blow" on Hellrocker Records in Poland.

CM: Who are some of the bands musical influences?

RH: All the band members listening to a lot of different music and different genres but we have one band in common and that is Motörhead!

CM: When it comes to songwriting is it a group effort? Or is there a primary songwriter in the band?

RH: We all have our part in the process of making new songs but Rob is the one who writes most of the lyrics maybe because he also are the singer in the band.

CM: Do you guys tour outside of your hometown at all? And are there any plans for a possible tour in the coming months?

We don´t have any tour planed right now, just some gigs now and then.

CM: Can we expect any new releases from Rawhide in the near future?

RH: At the moment we´re working on our full length record that will be recorded whit Thomas Skogsberg in the famous studio Sunlight Studio in the end of the summer.

CM: I gotta ask you guys, the name Rawhide is just fucking great! How did you guys come up with the name?

RH: Another thing except for Motörhead that we have in common are Clint Eastwood and the name Rawhide is from an old western tv show from 1959-66 whit Clint Eastwood in it. 

CM: Is there a website you guys wanna plug where we can get up to date news on new releases, tour dates and get mercy?
