Frameworks' debut album, titled Loom, is due out in April. This coming week, they'll preview some of it in Austin at SXSW where one of their shows is the official BrooklynVegan showcase on Wednesday night. We recently spoke to them about the new album and saw some in-studio pics. Now, we cornered singer Luke Pate again and asked him 5 QUESTIONS:


1) What is your favorite venue to play in the country and why?

Luke: It's between Suburbia in Brooklyn and The Talent Farm in Pembroke Pines. The first time we played Suburbia I couldn't believe it was a real place. The layout is incredible and the dudes who run it are very commendable and friendly. The Talent Farm is also run by very sincere dudes and the sound there is always top notch. So It's one of those two.

2) Tell us about the worst show you've ever played.

Probably Warped Tour in Orlando. It was blistering hot and the sound guy didn't give a shit and told me while on stage I didn't know how to use a microphone.

3) What are some albums that you guys have been spinning in the van lately?

We've mostly been jamming the new Caution Children and You Blew It records. That new Nothing and Prawn/Joie De Vire stuff are in there as well.

4) What would your metal band name be?

Eternal Years on the Path to the Cemetery Gates.

5) Be honest: how often do you change your clothes on tour?

I have mine down to a science. I change pants every three days and everything else daily. I think some of the other guys bring 3 outfits.
