Interviews: The Sunrise


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Hard Rock/Rock band, The Sunrise, from Italy. Check out the interview and follow the band 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 came out after a dinner with our friends, while, talking about our lives walking on the sea-side, we saw the sun coming out from the darkness of the night and we instantly thought that our band must be called like that amazing thing out of the black...The Sunrise.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Because of in our city nobody have played it before and we wanted to approach something new for us to manage and to compare with the other bands and the other musical genres we usually were listening to.

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

Of course we did! We all live in a small town and there is a lot of musicians in there. In fact we had the opportunity to play together in different contests before the creation of the band and also meet ourselves during parties and events.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Wow! That’s for sure a good question! In fact we all listen to very very different genres... Giorgia (the singer) likes a lot 80’ iconic rock band and in particular she loves the Kiss. Andrea (keyboards) comes from the pro-rock genere and his favorite band is Genesis. Tommaso (guitarist) on the other hand used to play and listen to metal core music and he literally loves Architects. Simone (drums) is probably the biggest fan in the world of Iron Maiden; at least Giulio (bass) likes Blind Guardian.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We used to be inspired by our day life; in our songs, especially in Brand New Disorder, we have written an entire kind of story based on our discomfort to live in the ordinary society where people only want to prevail using violence and ignorance. In other words it’s just a sort of picture that we make to our society. 

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig, unfortunately, was before the lockdown in January, inside our favorite pub in town, where we had the opportunity to play not only for the audience, physically there, but also we were broadcast live by two local radios.

7. Where would you like to act?

Another good issue...Realistically our ideal target should be to play as opening band at some rock and metal festivals; because of our will is to make the band better and to be known by more people all around the world. If however we’ll let our imagination run...we guess that play live at Royal Albert Hall in London could be the best thing ever in our life.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

If we consider a collaboration with one singer, for example, regarding also our kind of genre we think that work with Myles Kennedy will be absolutely great! If there was the possibility, instead, to work with another band for the realization of a song or a live event it will be fantastic to jam with Tool.

9. Whom not?

Low blow hahahahahaha! Basically music is music and it’s a universal langue made of very different genres and antipodes; We are really open mind about it and we can only say that we probably will not join someone too much far from our sphere.

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

Who has not? Of course we all had, and it stills make us shaking sometimes; but it is precisely this sensation of agitation that transformed into energy allows us to unleash ourselves on stage. For beginners our advice is to be really prepared on music and on what they have to do, this makes it easier to manage.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Talking about Brand New Disorder we can affirm that our inspiration comes from lots of different band, in particular we took inspiration from bands like Metallica, Dream Theater, Iron Maiden and for some reasons also Blink 182 for their energy and visceral way to express their thought.

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

The craziest thing that a fan has asked to us, it was to give him the font and the drawing of our band logo to have it tattooed on his arm.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Our fans are really important for us and we always ask for opinions and advices to them because we make music not only for our pleasure but mainly for them; so their opinion for us is crucial. We thank to them all because if we are slowly reaching some target it is thanks to them.

14. What do you think of our site?

Oh yeah guys you rock! Your website is awesome and it’s fantastic to find this volume of artists all in the same place! We are grateful to be part of it and we hope to see you again!

15. Something add?

Don’t miss our single RUN extract from the album BrandNewDisorder out on September the 4th 2020 via WormHoleDeath/TheOrchard. Rock on \m/
