Who all is part of the band and what do they play?
Samantha - Lead Singer
Kyle - Lead Guitarist
Cory - Drummer
Cody - Bass Guitar/backup vocals
Where do you hail from?
Rock Springs, Wyoming
What does your name mean? How did you come up with it?
Three brothers in the band have the last name Zampedri, which is where the Zam comes from and Trip is in reference to triple because there's 3.
How is it that you came to play in the metal scene?
We started out learning covers and playing as many bar shows as possible. Then we started writing our own music and have built tours off from that.
What are some of your influences?
Motley Crue, Black Stone Cherry, Halestorm and Led Zeppelin.
What are your goals for the future?
To share our music with the world and be able to make a living off of our passion.
It's always awesome to hear that you 'sound like this band' or there are elements in there of a band, what are your thoughts and feelings when you are compared to those bigger names?
Being told that we sound like some of the bands that have inspired us, is one of the highest compliments that we can receive. It's awesome how fans connect through our music the way that they do with some of their favorite bands.
Who would you ask to be on an album? Go on tour with you? And why them?
We would ask Corey Taylor to be on an album with us because he is so musically diverse and a great songwriter. We would want to tour with Steel Panther, because who wouldn't?
If you could make up your own 10 city stop tour, with money being no object, what cities would it be and why?
Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Seattle, Washington; Boston, Massachusetts; Cleveland, Ohio; Rock Springs, Wyoming; Las Vegas, Nevada; Salt Lake City, Utah; Nashville, Tennessee; Madison, Wisconsin; Denver, Colorado.
If Hollywood came to you and said we're making a film of your band, who would play each member and why would you pick those actors/characters?
Taylor Richards, the guitarist of Royal Bliss would play Kyle. Mike Myers would play Cory. Zach Galifianakis would play Cody. Drew Barrymore would play Samantha.
If your managere or lead front man of the group said, "here is the list of those five cover songs you wanted to do," what songs are on that list
Without Me - Eminem, because even if you don't like Rap, you like this song.
What A Day - Nonpoint, because it's a very high energy song and we never get tired of hearing it.
Don't Stop Me Now - Queen, because the music, arrangement and vocal harmonies are absolutely amazing!
Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd, because that guitar solo, in our opinion, is one of the greatest of all time.
Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry, because absolutely everybody knows that song and will dance or sing to it.
If you could switch positions in the band, what would you want to be and why? AND if you could play in a major band for one night only, who would it be and why?
Kyle would sing because he likes to be the center of attention. Cody would play the drums because he can keep good rhythm. Samantha would play guitar because she plays a wicked air guitar. Cory would play bass because that's the only instrument his big hands would work for.
What was the first song you ever learned?
Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes
We all know mistakes happen, as no show is ever perfect, but how do you handle them?
Play through it, that's all you can do, and maybe shoot the occasional dirty look.
Be it a location or a stadium, what is the one place that is a MUST for you to play and why?
Red Rocks Amphitheater
Any advice for aspiring musicians/bands?
Follow your dreams and don't let anyone tell you that you can't do it. Don't give up!
