by Frances Amelie Sin (FAS)
FAS: I think the people that
visit my website will not know you so well, so maybe you can introduce
them to the band!
Well, we are
four individuals, we are very good friends back in 1994, we started the
band in 1994, and we just started exploring music, and we
more and more into a rock band so this is what we’re doing.
How do you came together with Deep Insight for a tour, I think
it’s kinda diffrent genre?
Well to be honest I haven’t really heard of them so
it’s gonna be exiting to be here with them tonight, so I
don’t really know who put us together, it’s a
Well you are working on a new Album, I know you played the first new
song on Tour with AFI the last weeks, so how far is the recording gone
and when will the new Album be released?
it’s gonna be an EP, it’s gonna be 5 new songs and
live tracks and it’s called “The Black
Rose“ EP, so
it’s not a full lenght album but we just wanna put something
there in the meantime, but it will not become something we just throw
together, we really spend a lot of time into this EP so it’s
something we put together really fast, you know? We are really proud of
it, we love this EP
FAS: You were playing some shows
in Germany this year, so how is the feedback?
Well it’s good, it’s really good, the AFI crowd
treated us really nice, it has been a really good experience.
Next month you will go on Tour with Linking Park and 30 seconds to Mars
and you will play in such big stadions like the Color Line Arena in
Hamburg. You play here for a very small audience and then there is this
huge audience in a Stadion. What do you feel thinking about it??
it’s a totally different thing, we have done bigger shows in
states, and some smaller shows, it depends, I kinda prefer what
we’ve done with AFI, it is big but it’s not
know?! You can loose a little bit of this intimacy if you
too big shows, ...
FAS: What about these Club Shows??
Ow I love them, you are much closer to the Fans!
Well what about your relationship to Linkin Park, it is not
the first Tour with them, are you friends??
asked us, we didn’t know them before, a few years back in the
states, they asked us if we wanna go on Tour with them, and
were doing what they called „a small Club Tour“
was 3000 to 4000 every night, so we opened up for them on that tour,
supported them , and then they asked us for another month to go on a
tour with about 15 000 people each night.
Have you ever played in big Stadions before??
No, we never did, I think the biggest was 15 000 people.
Ok have you ever thought of working together with another musician, an
Idol?? Who would be your favourite?
silence) no, I don’t think so, no.......the thing is
my favourite band!! It’s not like I think we are the best
the world, it’s just I love being with these guys, they are
best friend and I love to watch the other guys playing, I think I would
not chose to be in an other band, just because there is a special
chemistry, a spiritual thing when we are all together in a room,
because we are friends as well , over all these years... and I
don’t think I can find that with anyone else.
What was your inspiration to start with the music?
just friend and we wanted to start a rockband but we didn’t
how to play music, so we just kinda learn. This is my first band,
I’ve never been in another band before, the guitar player and
drummer, they had a band before, a Metallica cover band, and I came in
and tried it out and they were like: well we will call you
call us! So they didn’t but later on they joined Blindside.
Imagine you would be a song, wich song are ya??
well first of
all, all our songs ARE me, in a way, I write the lyrics, but well ....
ow I think thats a good question...... just for now I think it would be
„ My Alibi“
What would you have become without the music??
Ah ok, well I don’t know, I don’t have a B-Plan
FAS: But what was your childhood
dream to become??
yeah I never
had any.....(O.o) it’s weired, no actually when I was a kid,
was a really weired Kid, but they asked me when I was about 10 years
old: „what will you be when you‘re grown
And I was like: „ I wanna be a tree“
(O.o!!) And they
said: „you wanna be a tree???????“
it’s so calm“... „ you can’t be
I don’t really had a dream, I know some of my class mates
wanted to become Police Officers so I said I want to become a
police Officer too, but I never meant it, I didn’t care..!
I’m sure if the band would end I would find something else to
I would probably work with peope, I like to meet people, ... and it
would be also something around the music.
Your last words to the people
Well take care and buy our new EP , Thank you
