Interviews: STEELAWAKE

Share:

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Alternative Metal/Alternative Rock band STEELAWAKE, 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 or just came like that?

The band name’s meaning is “still awake”, which reflects a way of living without being too influenced by today’s society and trying to think with you own head instead. “Steel” is a pun which recalls the metal genre.  

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

The alternative rock genre is kinda therapeutic and allows you to express your deepest emotions in a personal and powerful way, so that’s why we like to play this kind of music and to write songs  in this style.  

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?  

The singer knew the drummer and they eventually decided to find other people and start a band, that’s when they met the bass player and the guitar player.  

4. Each band member favourite band?  

Our favorite bands are: Papa Roach (Teo), Incubus (Daline), Red Hot Chili Peppers (Guanda), Muse (Peet)  

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?  

We take inspiration from our personal lives and from other bands we love.  

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was in Rho (near Milan) at Rock’n’Roll Club.  

7. Where would you like to act?

We would love to play all around the world, especially in the States, and at big festivals in general.  

8. Whom would you like to feature with?  

We would like to feature with some of our favorite artists like Adam Gontier, Corey Taylor, Andy Black, Hayley Williams or with bands that have a sound similar to ours like Skillet, Icon for Hire or Like a storm.  

9. Whom not?

None in particular.  

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Every musician goes through it at the beginning, it happens when you want to play a good show and do your very best, to the point where you are afraid to miss a few notes and being less than perfect. Our tip is to focus on what’s important, which is having fun while doing what you love and giving the audience all your energy from the stage. Keep playing live until your confidence builds in and you get there.  

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Some of the bands that inspired us the most are: Seether, Papa Roach, Skillet, Three Days Grace, Stone Sour and many more.  

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

We haven’t experienced any weirdness yet. Fun fact: our singer is often asked if the girl in the band is single and if they can hit on her.  

13. What do you think of your fans? 

We think our fans are… still awake!  

14. What do you think of our site? 

We think your site is very effective and gives visibility to the bands in an interesting and well-structured way.  

15.  Something add?

Rock on!
