Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
Answer: We are artists that want to spread our messages and beliefs into the world. We want to express the emotions without filter, nude and crude.
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
Answer: We are all former BIMM London students and are all originally from Portugal. We met around 5 years ago and became friends, and later decided to create Electron to shake up the metal scene in the UK.
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
Answer: Metallica, Korn, Avenged Sevenfold and Halestorm.
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
Answer: We aspire to revolutionise the musical industry.
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
Answer: We all write our songs based on our life experiences as well as what we observe of the world and what we read.
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
Answer: By giving everything we got in all the shows and connecting with our fans in all our accessible tools.
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
Answer: Even though we are passionate about music, it’s a job nevertheless. You can’t work for free. Downloading music starves the upcoming artists and stagnates our industry. It’s very dangerous for the future generations of musicians.
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
Answer: We enjoy all kinds of music that have been around in the metal industry. But there’s no song we wish we would’ve written, because even though we enjoy listening to those songs, we prefer writing about our personal experiences and emotions.
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
Answer: The Kardashians.
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
Answer: Playing our first international festival back in August.
PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
Answer: Our debut album.
PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from?
Answer: We have our latest single “Wake Up!” in all streaming and digital platforms. Check it on iTunes 😉
