In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the Metalcore band New Way Out, from Italy. 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?
We have chosen the name New Way Out because we needed to break away from the past experiences with other bands we had, all in a new way.
2. Why did you want to play this genre?
We decided to play this genre because it combines heavy and melodic rhythms at the same time. We listen to a lot of different metal music and we like to write songs in that way. Now we're labeling ourselves with that genre but in our new EP sounds and songs structure will be a lot different than our first songs so we don't know what's gonna be in future but we're sure it'll be awesome.
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
The band was formed by Davide (Bass) and Michele (Voice) who already knew each other then they contacted Emanuele (Guitar). From here they were searching a drummer and Davide suggested me (Mattia) because he already knew me by playing in another band of mine. Then we found another guitarist, Andrea, who played with us just for a few months. Then we came in touch with Antonio last month who's now our second guitarist.
4. Each band member favourite band?
Michele: Killswitch Engage and Earth, Wind and Fire.
Davide: Tool and Destrage.
Mattia: Destrage and Periphery.
Emanuele: Attack Attack! and Periphery.
Antonio: Dream Theater and Genesis
These are just two of our favourite bands for each member, we have a lot of other favourites.
5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
The songs we write are inspired by personal issues, emotions, sometimes invented stories or real events happened in history and problems with Italian politics.
6. Where was your last gig?
The last gig we had was at Rock In Culo in Bovolone near Verona, Italy
7. Where would you like to act?
Wherever there are people who can enjoy our music.
8. Whom would you like to feature with?
We'd really like to collaborate with Adam D. from Killswitch Engage or Elliot Coleman from Good Tiger.
9. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
Emanuele suffered and still suffer from stage fright sometimes. If I have to suggest something I'd say to not think about it until you start playing, once you've started your fear will vanish.
10. What bands have inspired you the most?
Michele: Adam D. from KSE because in my opinion he's a great composer and KSE transmit strong emotions to me.
Emanuele: Of Mice and Men because they opened me a new world in the metal genre.
Davide: Tool for their "simple" but effective riffs and tones. Antonio: Periphery because talking about guitar work they are my reference in modern metal.
Mattia: Destrage, Periphery and Animals As Leaders, talking about drums they taught me a new way to learn and play drums. They inspire me to get better every single day.
11. What do you think of your fans?
Since we've published just a few days ago our songs on other public platforms besides YouTube and we received few feedbacks only at our gigs, we don't really have something to say about our fans. The only thing is that the feedbacks received were always positive, so we hope to get more and even better. At the moment we'd like to thank all our supporters.
12. What do you think of our site?
It's a really good site because it helps underground bands to grow and get a lot of new fans who can discover new music every day.
13. Something to add?
Stay tuned, new songs are coming. We're recording our new EP and we're really excited to let you hear it!
