Fuck You, Get Pumped: An Interview With Direct Hits! Nick Woods

Music4 min Read

The pop punk frontman chats with us about tattoos, touring, and punk rock

Nick Woods may be in the running for the title of hardest working man in punk. The Direct Hit! frontman somehow manages to write and release albums at a rapid clip, tour incessantly, hold down a full-time career as a copywriter, and is a new father on top of all of that. Woods will rock the stage with Direct Hit! at midnight, get to sleep at two in the morning, and wake up at six for a conference call. I’ve seen it, and it’s annoying as hell to someone who is still trying to sleep. Somehow, Woods managed to find a granule of free time to answer some questions we had.
