In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Mosh Pop /Easycore band Outta Peak, from UK. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE.
1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?
The name started like a joke (and an error to be honest): we use to love the film SLC Punk that talks about the anarco-punk movement of 1980s, translating “out of the mohawk” in Outta Peak. Then a band of friend of ours told us the real meaning and we found it a lot better to be honest!
2. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
Talking about the first lineup we knew ourselves since 3 years before forming the band (we all meet at the second class of our school). At the moment we are half of the initial line up and half of great musicians we found here in UK, so we don’t know them for a lot of time even if we speak the same language music wise, so it is like we know each other from years.
3. Each band member favourite band?
Federico: I’d say King Crimson for the classics, Pierce The Veil for the modern
Riccardo: Architects and Northlane
Axl: To many...
Jonny Hall: Animals as Leaders
4. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
It depends, it’s not always the same thing. I would say it’s always different! It can start with a riff, a cool beat or just a lyrics, we are so various about it!
5. Where was your last gig?
Lounge 41, Workington. We had so much fun there and the promoter has been fantastic with us, can’t wait to play there again!
6. Where would you like to act?
Our dream venue? Every single venue in the world, let’s do this!
7. Whom would you like to feature with?
Vic Fuentes from Pierce The Veil for sure.
8. Whom not?
I’d say Ligabue and Vasco Rossi, the Italian acts who everyone in Italy loves since 1980s. And we don’t understand how and why.
9. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
To be honest when we started playing live we were just friend enjoying eating a lot of junk food, staying together and playing live music so the last thing we had in our mind was about stage fright or been afraid to play in front of even larger crowd.
Tips for beginners? We are not the right people to ask to, but our advice is to jump on the stage and enjoy doing what you love!
10. What bands have inspired you the most?
We grow all up with different kind of genre, but at the moment we can probably say that one of our favourites is Pierce The Veil. Then you can easily find While She Sleeps, Bring Me The Horizon, Brand New, Northlane… We can carry on for ages!
11. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?
Last summer during the East European Tour we were in Ukraine, we played at the Rock Bulava Festival, it was crazy.
After the show we’ve been stuck with the fans for 30/40 minutes, taking pictures with them and signing autographs. It was strange for us, but so cool!
Then a wild fan appeared asking us if we could give him our four sweated shirts of the stage time, it was really really weird!
Or maybe was weirder that time that a fan asked for us to sign on her titties? Honestly I can’t choose between those two!
12. What do you think of your fans?
Fans are really important to us, it’s always a pleasure to hang out before or after a gig with them or get in touch to listen to their feedback about our releases.
13. What do you think of our site?
”Breathing The Core” is a very good webzine and we always appreciate people working with passion and love for music. We wish it “good luck” for the future. Moreover, we really appreciate what you are doing for the bands and we think you are one of the best webzine for the underground bands. Keep going like this!
14. Something to add?
Yes, we want to say that moving our entire lives from Italy to UK just because of our passion is the most exciting and challenging thing we ever done in our whole lives, we are looking forward to see what this beautiful Country deserves for us in the near future!
In the meantime keep your eyes peeled, Outta Peak is going to take over the world! (or at least we’ll try it!)
Thanks for having us guys!
