There’s something about the way Brandon Roundtree is clasping his hands together in Conditions‘ promo photo that freaks us out. We’re not sure if he’s cracking his knuckles ready for a punch, or he’s getting ready to pray at us.
Do you have any particular or unusual Christmas traditions?
Every Christmas Eve, my brothers and I all get matching pajamas to wear….if we do not wear them, Santa does not come.
When did you find out Santa Claus wasn’t real and how did it happen?
I found all my presents in my parents closet one year while playing hide and seek…I still believe Santa just came early because he’s busy.
What would you get Kerry King for Christmas? You can’t choose Jagermeister.
What was your best Christmas present ever?
When Nintendo 64 came out and I got one…my little brother and I flipped out like that YouTube video.
It’s not like you’ve not seen this before:
If a bearded man broke into your house through the chimney on any other day of the year, what would you do?
My concept of Santa coming to certain houses early to lighten the Christmas Eve load would be proven….I would give this man milk and cookies….and then kick his ass for not being real.
Which one of Santa’s reindeer would you be and why? (Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen and Rudolf.)
all of them…because I am nine times the man any reindeer could ever be.
If you could have Christmas dinner with any 6 people, who would you invite?
John Mayer, Katy Perry, Optimus Prime, Dave Eggers, Kate Beckinsale, and Santa Claus.
Turkey: are you a leg or breast person?
I tend to enjoy the breast a bit more than the leg.
What is your favourite Christmas drink?
Watch one of Condition’s video diary things:
What’s the furthest you’ve ever had to travel to get “home” for Christmas? Has touring ever forced you to celebrate Christmas somewhere else?
My parents just moved to Toledo, Ohio…about 10 hours away from me….that’s the furthest i’ve ever had to travel for christmas. Touring has not tarnished Christmas yet.
Which metaller would you least like to see approaching you with mistletoe?
Nergal from Behemoth haha.
What’s been your worst New Year’s Eve experience (because NYE always sucks).
Being at a party with my girlfriend, the party had a DJ who goes “ALRIGHT! time for the countdown! 10, 9, 8, 7, 6….” then just stops….we were too drunk to realize and were subliminally waiting to hear the huge “HAPPY NEW YEAR!” to kiss….and it never came…IT NEVER CAME! So as far as i’m concerned it is still 2009, about to jump to 2011….considering the countdown is actually completed this year.
What will your New Year’s Resolution be?
To have more fun.
Conditions released their debut album, Fluorescent Youth, earlier this year on Good Fight Music. They might be touring somewhere next year. We don’t know where though. Or when, for that matter.
