DOMANDE A CURA DI GIULIA DE ANTONIS
What type of band are you? Tell a brief history of your band.
We could say we're a politically engaged band but the truth is we don't take ourselves too seriously. We're just 4 friends united by the will to make good music and have fun with people and we know politics is just theater.
What inspires you to do what you do? When did you form your band?
The band was founded in 2012 and it has evolved a lot since then. Bands like At The Drive-In, System Of A Down, Billy Talent and many others inspired us a lot. We always want to suprise people who listen to us.
How does music affect you and the world around you?
We wouldn't be able to survive without music. It's our drug, our addiction, it makes us feel alive.
What’s the biggest obstacles for bands? Tell something about your experiences.
Actually there's so many bands around the world that it's really hard to get people's attention. And it's even harder to be trusted by music producers. They don't want to take risk anymore. They want to make easy profit. That's why we're really happy to work with Carlo Bellotti from Wormholedeath because he's a real devotee of rock music and not just another businessman.
What’s your outlook on the record industry today?
Free downloading will kill all musicians who can't perform on stage. We all need to focus on our live performance because you can't download the emotions and vibrations of a good gig.
Who writes the songs, what are they about?
Manu Wild, our singer, wrote all the lyrics. Most or our songs talk about the contradictions and absurdity ouf our modern society: the so-called humanitarian wars, the banksters power, the burnout syndrome, the politically correct tyranny, the new world order, etc.
What are your dreams and goals?
Being able to live from our music and to play in far away countries like Japan, Russia or USA.
What can you tell about your instruments? What made you choose the instruments you have now?
Manu Wild: I was too lazy to become a good musician so I chose to sing
Don Armando: I was to shy to sing so I chose to play guitar
Julien Hartbulot: My friends formed a band and they already have a guitarist and a singer so I chose to play bass.
Wilson Raych: I wanted to join the same band but the only instrument missing were the drums so...
Do you have any upcoming shows?
We're preparing a release party for our album Burn Out in Paris.
What about your last musical work?
It's an-all new song. It talks about addiction and salvation. We'll play it at our next gig and we hope our fans will like it.
If something important hasn’t been asked you can talk in this question.
Message to people: if you want to save live music, support your local bands! Be curious, open-minded, don't stay in front of your screen and go to gigs!
