Noise Exclusive: Get To Know Heavy Newcomers Sink The Ship Via New “Nail Biter” Video + Interview


Continuing where we left off with last week’s introduction to SharpTone signees Settle Your Scores, today we’re excited to introduce you all to their post-hardcore labelmates (and current tourmates), Sink The Ship. 

To help celebrate the release of the band’s blistering-yet-bright, heavy-yet-infectious debut album Persevere, The Noise is bringing you Sink The Ship’s emotional new video for “Nail Biter.”

To check out the new clip plus our Q&A with vocalist Colton Ulery, be sure to look below. Afterward, make sure to pick up a copy of Sink The Ship’s new album here.           

Where did you grow up? And was there a music scene where you grew up?

I grew up about an hour outside of Cleveland, Ohio in a city called Mansfield. There was definitely a music scene. Mansfield was poppin’ back in the MySpace days! It’s what got me into wanting to play music outside of just doing it at home.

What was the first concert you went to and the best concert you’ve been to? 

I remember the first show I had ever gone to was this local band called Almost Aces back in like 2004. My ex-girlfriend’s brother played drums for them. The best concert I’ve been to was Senses Fail’s 10-year anniversary tour for Let It Enfold You

How would you describe your band in three words? 

Aggressive Live Show 

One album you will never get tired of listening to? 

A Lesson In Romantics by Mayday Parade. I love that album front to back. 


What inspires you creatively? 

I think just the things that happen in life. I like taking shitty situations and making a song out of it. 

The best and worst part about the music industry? 

Best: The amazing people you get to meet and network with. 
Worst: The complete assholes you have to meet and network with. 

Best piece of advice anyone has given you? 

I’m a really bad listener when it comes to advice [laughs]. Like, really bad. Unless it’s something crucial and I don’t know how to make a decision, I’m known to find things out the hard way. 

The best thing currently on Netflix? 

I keep finding myself rewatching Sons of Anarchy. Such a crazy series.
