Interviews: The Sunrise

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Hard 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?

Hi everyone, so that’s a question that we always like to answer to...basically the name of the band came out one day casually while, after a night out, we went to the beach in the early morning and we saw the sunrise building up out from the sea, immediately we knew that it was the one for us, that we wanted to share some freshness, something new, like a sunrise after the night.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Initially, our mindset was based on the hard rock scene cause of our backgrounds...but one day, Tommaso, our guitarist was playing some hard riffs, and Andrea, the Keyboard player, went on the riff with some psychedelic synth chords...that one step woke up us all and we decided to write something prog; and an album later we’re here, really happy about it.

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

We live in a really small town, so, more or less we knew each other but we never had the chance to play together; things just came out together really naturally and organically, of course, we lost some members down the road but the core of the team (Tommaso, Giorgia, Andrea) has always remained unchanged.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

That’s our favorite one !!! so...let’s go: Giorgia’s favorite band is an Italian Indie-Rock band called “FastAnimalsAndSlowKids”; Andrea’s favorite band is “Dream Theater”, Samuele’s favorite one is “Veil Of Maya” and Tommaso’s favorite band is “Periphery”.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Generally, we used to create some sort of characters to move around the ruined and dystopian world we imagined as a theater for our figures; nowadays we are writing, and Rising In Loop is the real proof of this concept, about real folklore and crime news that fascinate us, we take this real stories and we put them in our perspective and interpretation.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was in our hometown, Chioggia, called the “Little Venice” in our favorite old school-styled pub called “Discanto”, the staff is amazing, the food and drinks fantastic and when we play there it’s always a sold-out night and we have no words to tell how much grateful we are for the treatment we reserve to us.

7. Where would you like to act?

That’s a good question, of course, we would like to open our frontiers to Europe, we would like to have some experiences outside our Country to test our performance and to see and feel how an international crowd would react to us.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Let us tell you that our list of ideal candidates is practically gigantic...but we agree to say that Lacuna Coil would be our biggest point of arrival for our career.

9. Whom not?

There’s not one “I would never want to” on our list...we’re open to every kind of possibility, that’s the winning point of Progressive genres, that we do have not a specific cluster to fit into...we are free to experiment with every kind of thing.

10. Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?

Of course, we all have...We think that it’s a normal feeling to be afraid or scared when you’re a “first timer” and also when you’re not that young kid anymore...the fear to be on stage is an inevitable feeling to have a cause of every gig is different and every crowd is; some tips to fight against fear are to be well prepared and really focused on what you have to do.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

During our process of creation, we were inspired more by Lacuna Coil, Porcupine Tree, and Evanescence.

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

Nothing really weird for real, but one funny anecdote is that one time during a gig, a fan asked for a sweaty shirt, and we decided to throw it to him.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Our fan base is really small due to our particular genre that in Italy is not very known and appreciated, and that’s the reason why we really appreciate the support of our fans because if they’re still there means they like us and our work. 

14. What do you think of our site?

You Rock Guys! Horns Up for Breathing the Core \m/, you give the right visibility to local bands who deserve it!

15. Something to add? 

We are grateful and we appreciate your support; that’s the second time in three years that you give us the opportunity to be published and shared all along the web.
