Gotta start with the basics: When, how, and why did you form cumgirl8?

We met on a sex chat about 2000 years ago. We formed a band so we could get famous and meet Cicciolina. 🙂

What do you remember from the band’s first show?

It was freezing rain and sleet, I [Chase] slipped on the ice carrying drums inside. There were like seven people there. We looked really cute.

What are the best and worst venues you’ve played?

DĂĽsseldorf, Germany at Ratinger Hof. Best sound ever. DĂĽsseldorf is where dreams come true. We met TAKA who makes his own crazy instruments, like a 20-foot-long tube trumpet and wild video game gun noise machines. He played with us on stage, he had the most curious, gentle, beautiful, delicate energy.  Then took us to his giant, giant, giant, Walmart-sized studio and showed us all his creations. Like a helmet with a cymbal on top and you can feel all the reverberations in your bones. Also, I couldn’t find a place to park our van that wasn’t a million dollars and these punks rode with me across town to a special place and then walked me an hour all the way back to the venue in the rain and gave me their coat. Worst venue…can’t remember right now but anywhere that’s really cold without a green room, makes you pay for drinks, takes merch percentage, and rushes through soundcheck. Such bad vibes.

Budget notwithstanding, what’s your dream stage show (pyro, trapdoors, hot dog cannons, etc.)?

Something like Disney on Ice, definitely hot dog cannons. Tommy Lee drum cage, but an acrylic box that spins over the crowd and I’m not strapped in.

Ideally, what would your music create?

Fearlessness.

What’s inspired the band recently?

There is a cheese we found in France, we call it chaos cheese. It tastes like everything at the same time, it’s called Saint-FĂ©licien Ă  La Lyonnaise or Rocamadour.

Who’s worthy of a cumgirl collab?

Tokischa.

Why are fashion brands so thirsty for cumgirl?

Maybe because we’re so hardcore? 

What is the band’s signature scent?

AXE Dark Temptation.

Any lyric of yours that you’d like to leave our readers with?

“Sleepy world sleepy girl
Don’t pin me down don’t make it hurt
I feel with you I can’t talk shit
Your kisses taste like medicine”
