Because Lorna Shore lead vocalist Will Ramos recently told the metal influencer Nik Nocturnal how a hiker apparently assumed he was Bigfoot while practicing his vocals outdoors. And Ramos never corrected the passerby, leaving the confused wanderer only wondering. It happened when Lorna Shore filmed their latest “Pain remains“series of music videos.
See the interview at the bottom of this post.
“I went hiking myself on this trip,” explains Ramos. “I’m like, I just want to try my vocals. There’s nobody out here. … I just want to scream and see how I sound.”
He illustrates: “I started screaming … I start walking for a while. Then I look to my left and I see this guy turning the corner with his dog. I think this is awkward. He knows completely that it was me.”
Ramos recalls, “He comes up to me and I’m like, ‘Hey man, how are you? I love your dog. Can I pet your dog?’ He says, ‘Yes, you can pet my dog - by the way, did you hear that shit?’ … And I thought, ‘You, listen what?’ And he’s like, ‘Dude, that’s a crazy sound I just heard. I don’t know where it comes from.”
The Lorna Shore vocalist continues: “I was like, ‘How did that sound?’ He says, “Honestly, it sounded like something I’ve never heard before in my life.” I was like, ‘Wow, I’m not going to lie, I definitely heard something, but I think it got behind me ‘.”
Ramos didn’t let the joke slip and eventually parted ways with the hiker and returned to his outdoor vocal practice. But then he encountered the traveler again.
“I turned the damn corner and there he is,” Ramos recalls. “I was like, ‘Bro, I think I heard it!’ He’s like, ‘Dude, I just heard it again!’ I was like, ‘Wow, that’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard.'”
After debating what the sound might be — Ramos still played it cool and didn’t reveal the source — the two settled on a possible explanation, however mythical.
“I was just like, ‘What do you think that was?'” Ramos adds. “He was like, ‘Look, I don’t want to say, but I believe in Bigfoot.’ I was like, ‘Well, I’m out of here.'”
Last month, Lorna Shore released the new album Pain remains. It contains singles such as “Cursed to die“and”Sun//Eater.” Lorna Shore is currently on tour in North America. Get Lorna Shore concert tickets here.
