Your most recent release is a music video for “Night”. Why did you choose to make a video for that track?
The reason we chose “Night" as our current single is because not only is it a band favorite but a fan favorite as well. “Night” was the best follow up to “Mirror, Mirror" because it shows our versatility as a band. “Mirror, Mirror” was our pop-rock track that everyone could sing along with and “Night” has a sing along vibe as well. During live performances the crowd always sings their heart out to the “woahs" in the chorus. Although “Night" is still a catchy track, it paints a much darker picture with lyrics that mean a lot to the band.
How did you come up with the video’s concept?
After sitting down with our director Henry Arres, we discussed possible storylines that would portray the song’s theme of loss. We brainstormed a few different ideas but in the end, we went with a concept where each member was faced with various bad circumstances. Vince, our drummer, lost a loved one and his scenes took place in a graveyard. Rikki, our guitarist, gets fired from his office job and you see him walking home next to train tracks. Dan, our lead guitarist, and singer Amanda have relationship trouble with their significant others and are filmed in their homes. Daniele, our bassist, struggles with alcoholism and gets kicked out of the bar and into the street. All of our separate lives come together during the performance segment of the video, symbolizing music is what brings all of us together.
Do you have any other releases planned for 2018?
In 2018 we plan on releasing our new E.P early this year and playing in different cities and states that we haven’t played before.

How has WNG evolved since the release of your most recent EP?
Our upcoming E.P. is a much more mature, modern, and raw representation of all of us.
It feels as though our whole musical career has been leading up to this point. All the struggles of the past have been worth it because we feel as though we’ve found our home with We're No Gentlemen. We're truly a family who truly loves one another and it shows. We all come from very different backgrounds and use that to our advantage. We us our unique experiences and musical tastes together to create something we’re proud of. We know how lucky we are to have found this group!
