The Complete Interview: Hot Chick in Hard Rock Mixi of Stitched Up Heart

When we interviewed Stitched Up Heart singer Mixi for our new Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock issue (See page 57), we discussed several topics, including the band’s new single and video and her experiences as a high schooler.

Unfortunately, due to space constraints, we couldn’t include most of the interview. But that’s what the Internet is for! Read what she has to say below!

REVOLVER: First off, what’s new in Stitched Up Heart land?

We are shooting a music video for our new single, “Grave,” which will be out by the time the magazine is on the stands! I am gonna forward you the track so you can have a listen. We are touring around the US with our EP, Escape The Nightmare, which is sold only as hard copies at our shows. Slowly but surely, were putting together a full-length as we are still independent and self-funded. Gotta love the music industry!

Since this is also our “back to school” issue, some school-related questions: How would you describe your school experience?

In middle school I was a super-nerd! I even played the tuba for three years. I tried too hard to fit in back then, so everyone made fun of me. Once I got into high school, I decided to stop caring what people thought of me and just be ME. That’s when everything changed. To this day, I live by the motto, “You were born an original, don’t die a copy.”

What kind of student were you? A nerd or a troublemaker or somewhere in between?

I was the artsy kid. Was in AP art classes and took every creative class I could. As long as it involved paint, clay or performing arts, I was in! I was typically in a relationship the majority of high school, thanks to the curse of being a hopeless romantic.

What’s the worst trouble you got into while in school?

Me? In trouble? Never …

Did you ever skip school due to hard rock or metal?

I actually had pretty decent attendance! I didn’t have much of a choice when the softball coach was keeping track at all times! I probably only missed a few days out of the year. I know! Nerd alert!

Did you ever have any run-ins with bullies?

I’ve never been in a fight in my life. I kill them with kindness! All the kids that bullied me in middle school ended up being my friends in high school once I stopped giving a fuck about what people thought.

Did music help you get through school? If so, how?

Music helped me get through life. I’ve been through the ringer for this passion. It’s a tough industry. I just realized how impossible it is for me to survive without it. When I grow up, I wanna be a little old lady In a rocking chair on her front porch with an acoustic guitar singing to the neighbor kids to “Get off my lawn!”
