Check out our interview with the band:
Could you give us a little background info on how the band came together?
We have been playing together since 2009. Denis and Ivan were schoolmates, after they entered to different universities. Later we met Yanas, he joined the band and became the lead vocalist. Now, after several changes, we have four members: YANAS – vocal, DEN – guitar, IVAN – bass, TIMI – drums.
How would you describe your music/sound to people who haven’t heard it yet?
There is a lot of energy in our music. I like what all the guys in the band are doing. In my turn, I try to make vocal parts very melodic and memorable. We also arrange our songs for a long time, until we are satisfied with the result. Maybe when our listeners hear our songs for the first time, they don’t hear and recognize the whole set of parts and instruments that sound on the record.
Have you guys always known you wanted to be musicians?
Yes, yes and yes again. This is our dream, our life and the main thing what we are doing now.
Was there one particular moment when you knew music was the path you wanted to take in life?
The turning point occurred when I was 13. I did everything I could. Swimming, guitar, vocal, theater, even dancing. It was time to choose one thing and at that moment on the Russian TV the first musical competition has shown. I looked at this shit and I realized that I wanted to do the same. So I decided to be a musician.
What do you think are some major differences between the music business in Russia and the USA?
Well, we have it just in the beginning. In the US, it is a monster of unprecedented size. We have much to learn how the things are. But still our country is different and there should be a different approach. Not only in Russia, but in most countries, the music business is not as well developed. In any case, your music will tell about you. And if you are really talented and want to succeed, no matter where you are from.
You have shared the stage with some very impressive musicians. Was there ever a specific time you were star struck?
I would tell you about one band, which for sure many of the readers know. Or maybe not. When we were on the opening for SLASH, after us there was one more band from the UK – Raven Eye. This is a very harmonious and explosive band, with good sound and also very energetic. They played better than the main stars. So I advise everyone to listen Raven Eye.
Do you have any plans to tour outside of Russia in the near future?
Oh sure. This is one of our main goals. After all, we are a band from Russia, but most of our songs are in english, so I do not see any obstacles for the population and rotation of our music outside the Russia. And I really love to perform live and travel as well.
Last, but not least, please tell people where they can go to get their hands on your music.
Yes, we are on all web resources – download our albums, watch our clips on YouTube and wait for the show!
