Hot Sunday Blood – Interview
Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
HSB – We are a plug and play band. Feel emotions, let it go, plug the instrument, play. Don’t ask questions, no bullshit.
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
HSB – We suffered many changes of line up and a risk of hiatus. But now we are well. Our band is something like a living person, with many gradients on it, trial and error, wrong and right notes. But now, as said, we are well.
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
HSB – Musically we steal…ehm, get inspiration from everyone we admire, regardless the genre. Outside the musical world we follow what happens in our lives, everyone of us has had its experiences and this makes uf different human beings.
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
HSB – We absolutely want to spread our music. It’s sure that we cannot please everyone but we think we have something to say, and we want to say it loud!
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
HSB – Music is composed all together while Andrea our singer is the author of the lyrics. Songs are intimate and reflect, with the use of metaphors and a bit of reality distortion what is the human naura in the continue pursue of self-determination.
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
HSB – We believe that to get the highest possible audience we must be a product rather than a band, that means collaborating with people whose job is to identify the key aspects and essence of our artistic path
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
HSB – Download what you want for free. But support your favourite bands. Go to live shows, buy merchandise if you can afford it, share their stuff on social media show them your dedication and appreciation. This is what truly help them!
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
HSB – only one? 😛 ok the fist one i can think of is Bohemian Rhapsody. So intense, changing and…perfect
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
HSB – most of us have cats. Yes, we are a cat band.
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
HSB – when a new face pops up and say “I did not know you, but you sound great! Can I have a CD please? When the next show will be?”
PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
HSB – we began writing songs for the next album which will be out…when it’s ready!
PD: Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.
HSB – Unfortunately, due to the contingency situation our shows are cancelled. But we will be back (soon we hope!) Why should you be there? Because we are well dressed, beautiful and our music stays in the radio pop canons. None of this is true. But we hit hard.
