Brandon Harris: Alone at last you guy’s have grown to be a power house in Underground Music . How did it all start?
Alone at last: It start around 2002, we start playing our own punk band with two single "no more worry" & "no feeling" (inspirated by bad religion and minor threat) and playing from underground gigs to gigs, by 2003 alone at last adding 2 new members as the vocalist and bassist. Finally, with our new album came out (with a lil' bit change of music from hardcore punk - metal - emo), people start to notice us. we've start playing at almost all the underground gigs in indonesia, being on mags, it's just happened like that. we're really never expected gonna be this such a huge band at the time.
Brandon Harris: Amarah Senyum dan Airmata” was you claim to fame. What was it like watching that song gain more and more fans as a band in Underground music?
Alone at last: It's beyond expected, for sure.. "Amarah Senyum dan Air Mata" was made just like our other songs that we've made for our first E.P.

So that feeling makes us have more passion to create another good song for them.
Brandon Harris: When it comes to getting across the globe, where are you focused most on making your music more known?
Alone at last: We making several english lyrics, like 'classic war is a modern war', 'mainstream of love', and 'hold that rope'.
