*cracks knuckles* Time to vote! It's our boys vs. Breathe Carolina:

It’s time for a completely fresh batch of songs for our daily ‘Sound Off’ series, and this time around, PopCrush is having the Cab and Breathe Carolina duke it out. Both the Cab and Breathe Carolina have been been praised for their singles ‘Bad’ and ‘Blackout,’ respectively — now, we wanna see which tune you guys like better!

The Cab has made waves for their sweet, pop rock sounds, and their tune ‘Bad’ is a breezy love song with amazing, R&B influenced vocals from Alex DeLeon and a catchy, foot-stomping beat. On the other hand, Breathe Carolina’s ‘Blackout’ is a full-blown electro pop club banger about partying hard, which is perfect for a sweaty dance party. Which tune do you guys like more? Cast your vote below!

by my favorite dude at AP. So much of this is hilarious now, particularly everything about the label. Also, this has renewed my sadness that we never got to see the reality show footage.

Cab, The - 07.08.07
Interviewed by: Joe DeAndrea (07/08/07)

What's your name and role in the band?

My name is Alex, Alexander, Alexander Michael DeLeon, or Singer and I sing.

Does it ever get confusing having three Alex's in the band?

Haha It’s insane. It’s not too bad though. Having three Alex's in the band definitely did take some getting used to, but it’s pretty fun and makes for a good laugh. When we first started people would say “Alex” and we'd all look and say "what?" simultaneously. It was ridiculous to watch. We’d all look over at the same time and people always made fun of us and said it looked like a dance routine or like synchronized swimming without the water. After awhile we changed it up, so now everyone calls me Singer, Alex Marshall is just Marshall, and Alex Johnson is Drummer. It's cool for people outside of the band though, because if they forget our names, they can just say or guess “Alex” and the odds and numbers are totally in their favor. Maybe it’s a blessing. If we ever all work at a Wal-Mart together and one of us loses our nametag we can just borrow one from another Alex.

You guys just finished high school right? How old are all of you?

Yeah we finished high school a few weeks ago! Thank god. It was insane trying to juggle being in a signed band and studying for finals at the same time. Everyone in the band is currently 18. Marshall just turned 18 last week and he is the youngest.

It’s been more than three years since Las Vegas rockers THE CAB released their debut full-length, Whisper War. Plagued by lineup changes in the past and delays with their label, Fueled By Ramen, the band recently announced they severed ties with FBR and also let go long-time drummer, Alex Johnson. Now, frontman ALEX DELEON speaks out on what happened, where they’re headed and how excited he is for the world to hear Symphony Soldier, the Cab’s long-awaited sophomore album dropping Aug. 23. (You can pre-order the album now at the Cab's official website.)


This album has been a long time in the making, to say the least. What are you most proud of?
Bands break up all the time because of the stuff we were going through, and [I’m proud of] the fact that we could put all that aside and become stronger. Not to sound cliché, but [we were able to] grow from it. Separation from the label definitely gave us a bigger sense of self-worth. We could do what we wanted; we could trust our instincts instead of always having to talk to a higher-up, and have someone telling us what they wanted from us and having all these demands and pressures. When all of that went away, it was super-easy to make an album that we were proud of, whereas before there were guidelines you have to follow being on a record label.

When you announced you were leaving Fueled By Ramen, you said the label didn’t see eye to eye on where the Cab should go. Where do you think the Cab should be going?
The thing is, Fueled By Ramen is still one of the best labels around. They’ve taken Gym Class Heroes, a bunch of hip-hop dudes, and turned them into one of the biggest staples in that pop/R&B world. Or you look at Paramore, who’ve become one of the biggest bands in the world. FBR is an incredible label. I think the case with us... I don’t think they got us. I think they were excited about us, and then it got to a point where I just don’t think they were on the same page sound-wise or vision-wise. I think they were just kind of like, “Look, we don’t know what to do.”

Labels are in such a bad spot, because everyone is trying to do what’s popular right now. Like, “What’s on the radio right now? What’s Top 20 right now? Let’s try to do that.” And sometimes you don’t need to follow the trends. You need to start the trends. Sometimes people don’t realize that. Everyone at the label treated us great, but we knew exactly who we were as a band and we knew what we wanted. We’ve always wanted this R&B/edgy-rock thing. I don’t think they saw that.

But at the end of the day, I think both sides knew that it was like, “Okay, we’re not agreeing on anything, I think we’ll both be better off.” It was just confusing. I think that’s the best word. Everyone is confused. No one hated anyone. They didn’t hate the music; we didn’t hate them. We just weren’t agreeing. So that’s it. I mean, it wasn’t really dramatic or anything, and I’m sure we’ll remain close with a lot of the people down there, and a lot of the bands [on the label] are like our family.
