Five guys…one passion…one vision. Saved by Skarlet was founded about seven years ago by Nate and Matt Middleton in Rhode Island. Nate is currently the lead singer/rhythm guitarist, Matt is the lead guitarist, and accompanying them on this journey is Adam on drums, Ben as featured screamer, and Evan on rhythm guitar.
But where did the name Saved by Skarlet come from? I got the chance to talk to the guys and ask this question. Watch the clip below to see what they had to say!
They have been hustling and playing many shows to network and grow their reach. When asked what they would want people who have never heard of them to know, the response was that the personal investment and emotional intimacy of their music sets them apart.
While the band is still working their way to the top, they have gotten the opportunity to play with some great bands such as The Veer Union, The Protest, Spoken, and Set for the Fall. So who would they collaborate with if they had the chance? The answer was Skillet and Red as those two bands influenced them and they feel that the musical styles are so similar. I believe anything is possible so there is a good chance that one day that will happen…hint hint John Cooper.
I always like to get to know individuals better so I asked each of the guys to give me a random fact about themselves. Here is what they said!
Nate – “I really like video games”
Matt – “I love working on cars and doing auto body stuff.”
Adam – “I do a whole lot of theater and am into musical theater and acting.” P.S. He also loves One Direction.
Ben – “I am a huge underground closet dungeons and dragons nerd.”
Evan – “I like anime.”
SBS just recently released their new album “Out of Darkness” which you can find on all streaming platforms. Be sure to check it out and give them feedback on what you think! It was so great to talk to these guys so make sure to give them a like on Facebook and follow what they have going on!
