Skadi of PitCam Production conducted an interview with guitarist Joshua "Josh" James of Jacksonville, Florida's EVERGREEN TERRACE on December 6, 2010 in Berlin, Germany during the Persistence Tour with UNEARTH, SICK OF IT ALL, D.R.I., BLOOD FOR BLOOD, CRUEL HAND and CASEY JONES. You can now watch the chat below.
EVERGREEN TERRACE's latest album, "Almost Home", sold around 2,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD landed at position No. 17 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
Continuing its blistering combination of melodic hardcore and metal, EVERGREEN TERRACE has gone back to its roots on "Almost Home". "I think this record will surprise the new listeners as well as have the old ones stoked," stated guitarist Josh James. " I'd say its best described as a good mixture of 'Burned Alive by Time'  and 'Wolfbiker' ."
Splitting the recording process of the album in half, the band tracked all the music at Martell Studios and all of the vocals at AudioHammer (AUGUST BURNS RED, BURY YOUR DEAD, TRIVIUM, etc.).
"We've always had a lot of pop culture references in our song titles and this record is no exception," said James. "Before we even started writing new songs, we already have a list of titles from books, movies, and comedians. Half of the song titles on this record are pulled from the lyrics. The others are pop culture references that relate to the lyrical content."
