See Interviews With Paramore, Fitz and the Tantrums + More at SXSW

Fuse sat down with a gaggle of acts at SXSW 2013, among them Paramore, Fitz and the Tantrums, Icona Pop and twenty | one | pilots. Most of the interviews focused on the artist’s experiences with SXSW, both past and present.

You can walk down memory lane with Paramore, who recall their first SXSW, which took place in 2006. They also compare the city of Austin, the homebase of SXSW, to their hometown of Nashville. Hayley Williams and the boys also talk about self-titling their album. Find out why they struggled with the naming of the release. They also talk about ‘Part II’ as a sequel to ‘Let the Flames Begin.’

Fitz and the Tantrums reveal the best show they have ever seen at a SXSW. We won’t tell you which act it is, but we will give you a hint: It was a rock band. Watch and find out which.

Icona Pop talk about what makes SXSW so charming for them. They like SXSW because they can perform in front of bigger crowds.

Twenty | one | pilots muse about what Austin is like when SXSW isn’t invading the city and recall a heckler at their last show in the city, where there were only 15 people.
