Interviews: D.I.G


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the  Groove Metal band, D.I.G, from Sweden. 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?

Well, it was not planned, it was the offspring of a drunken Christmas party we had. D.I.G could be translated as "dipp in the pot" which is a Swedish Christmas thing "dopp i grytan"

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Cause there is nothing better than loud guitars and heavy riffs!! I (Björn) love so much music but the heavy rock is just what I always seem to write when I try to make some music.

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

Yes and No. Me (Björn) and bass player Fredrik have known each other for a long time and played music together in different bands for years. Jonathan is the new guy so to speak. But I did know him before he got into the band

4. Each band member favorite band?

Björn: Right now I would say Moron Police, happy pop prog from Norway! cool as fuck!

Fredrik: The night flight orchestra, a nice Swedish band that mixes 70 and 80 ́s rock.

Jonathan: AC/DC 4 life.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

I ́m the main songwriter (Björn) and I draw inspiration from all over, It can be a great song that i heard or something that happend in life! But mostly it is from hearing other music or seeing a live band that gets me going.

6. Where was your last gig?

In our home town of Bengtsfors back here in Sweden. Actually did a special set with some odd covers! like Rush, Van Halen, Electric Boys, and more. Some deep cuts so to speak. It was really fun. Then the corona shit happened and we haven't played live since that.

7. Where would you like to perform?

Sweden rock festival! That's like the holy grail of festivals if you are a Swedish band I guess. Would be super cool. But we would also like to a small tour somewhere outside of Sweden that would be awesome! 3 smelly boys in a small van all over Europe! what can be better than that?

8. Whom would you like to perform with?

Would say that a band that is kind of in the same veins as us would be cool so maybe like a bill with Alter Bridge, Black stone cherry, and King ́s x would be cool!!

9. Whom not?

A band that would be "divas", I don't think I could perform or tour with a band that's not nice people! I don't care how big they are but if it ́s not fun it ain't worth it! Always surround yourself with happy people and positive energy!

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

Well, I guess we all get a bit nervous before hitting the stage, that's human nature I suppose. But my tip would be that don't be afraid to fuck up! and if you do OWN that moment, laugh, stop the song and do it again. If you own it nobody would react, if you look nervous and so people would take notice.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

I guess at an early age that would be Dream Theater and Europe. Nowadays I try to find new bands and so on. Really like Moron Police from Norway as mentioned before. Then its always fun to see what the old favorites are up to. I think now since corona and shit many bands are doing side projects and more so there are many projects out there that are interesting to listen to!

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

Haven't really gotten any weird question, sadly enough. Not even a "Hey can I follow you backstage" haha. But one of the weirdest things was when people showed up to a show early in our career and started to ask us about our music and hoped that we would play certain songs and more. It was weird in a sense that we weren't used to that.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Well, we still try to gain a bigger following. But I do love the fans we have. They are fun and support us!

14. What do you think of our site?

Nice site! I ́m hoping to find some new cool music thanks to you guys.

15. Something to add?

Well don't be afraid to follow us on social media, we got some cool things coming up like new single, album and more! We are also on the major streaming services so search for D.I.G and check out the latest single "in the blink of an eye". 



Thanks for having us!
