Behind The Mic – VICTORS – Part 3


In this episode of Behind The Mic we checked back in with UK band VICTORS for the third time.

This time we checked in with Simon who plays lead guitar in the band.

In this episode we discuss Simon’s music journey and how he came to form the band with Harry who came on for Parts 1 and 2, playing in various indie-rock bands in his school days and a fond discussion over a shared love of the mid-00s UK pop-punk and rock scene.

For industry issues, we discuss social media and the instability and unpredictability of the music industry.

We also discuss the band’s recent experience as headliners of Just Checking In Live #5 and the launch of their new single ‘Nothing Seems to Matter Now’, which was released the day before the show.

For Simon’s mental health, we discuss the death of a good friend of Simon’s who took his own life on October 30th 2023. Simon had known Ben since childhood and they were part of a group who regularly went climbing together.

We discuss the shock of his death, the grieving process and how we can stop other men like Ben from taking their own life and help them find the release valve that works for them.

As always, #itsokaytovent
