Name: Josh Balz
Residing in: Pennsylvania
1) Who or what inspired you to be doing what you’re doing?
Watching people beg and not realize what they want to do with their lives and not making an effort to improve their lives. I work my ass off, I’m not just waiting for some handout. I create me.
2) Favorite band right now?
My favorite band right now is probably Slipknot. Just watching them every night makes me have so much respect towards them. They put everything into what they have and are very humble about it
3) Best part of touring?
The best part of touring is probably the first day and the last day. The first day because it’s nice and new and fun and the last day because I’m about to go home and relax ( or run my store and actually be involved).
4) Advice for up and coming bands?
Become a doctor.
5) Life tip?
Go back to answer for #4.
6) What are you grateful for?
I’m grateful for the support from my loved ones and friends.
7) You have your own store, The Strange and Unusual, what inspired that venture?
Just watching so many people have nothing to live for. I want to be busy and have fun and make my own decisions. I want to be someone that people can look up to, not just some deadbeat loser.
8) Motionless are currently on the Summers Last Stand tour with Slipknot, Lamb of God, and Bullet for my Valentine. How has the tour been?
I don’t know how it will be topped…
9) Favorite Blackcraft item?
Ram priest hoodie, the umbrella, lion throne chair and the damn socks!!!! (Can’t just have one favorite).
10) What does Blackcraft mean to you?
It’s more than just some shirts, they’re family to me and are always there when I need them.
