We're busy writing for the 3rd album and doing as many gigs as possible in-between. We have a new bassist Dan, who has already played a few gigs with us and is getting stuck into writing new material with us. The rest of the year sees us recording the new material, and play lost of gigs including ones with the likes of Jex Thoth, GOLD (ex - The Devil's Blood) and Samsara Blues Experiment. We'll also be playing Hard Rock Hell Festival with Black Star Riders (ex - Thin Lizzy), Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Crucified Barbara, Gentleman's Pistols, Black Spiders and loads more.
2. How did listeners and critics meet band’s last album?
White Hoarhound" did better than anyone of us thought it would do. We didn't set out to impress anyone with it, nor did we try to force a particular style with it. We wrote the songs that we wanted to hear and play, and it paid off. 99% of the reviews were amazingly positive, we toured it around Europe for 2 weeks and the response from people blew us away. Initially it was released on CD via PsycheDOOMelic Records, and then it attracted the attention of Napalm Records who re-released it on limited edition 12" vinyl. We're very proud of the album, and even more so of the new material we are now writing.
3. "Paranoid" of Black Sabbath is an iconic song, what in this Earth can turn you paranoid?
Silly things make me paranoid... knowing there's a fat spider in the room, the dog looking up at the ceiling as if there's an apparition that only she can see, walking alone at night, and looking out from the stage at whispering and laughing faces hahaha
4. Who was your childhood hero? What kind of dude did you want to become?
I didn't really have a childhood hero, I just loved my pop bands. I'm not ashamed to say it either, because I've always loved music regardless of genre! I played musical instruments as a child, I was always in orchestras and I wanted to do it full time... either that or a designer/artist and now I do both so i'm pretty lucky!
5. Last TV-news reminds me about it – this question is about "War Pigs". What is your opinion about conflict around Syria? Do you see any reasons to justify military intervention of one country in affairs of another country?
I'm not a very political person and am probably not the best informed about these matters. However, I hate the idea of war and of innocent people being killed for reasons that a lot of those involved probably don't even understand. I am glad that the UK is not going to intervene, but I hope that whatever happens helps to prevent the loss of anymore life. On a similar note, I visited Israel a few years ago, and some of the beautiful and awe-inspiring areas I visited have now been destroyed due to conflict. It just makes me so sad that the world is losing these areas of historical and cultural importance, as well as people losing their livelihoods and (in some cases) lives.
