Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews. com)
PD. What type of band is SHOUT?
SHOUT is a tradition heavy metal band that wants to awaken party animal inside of you!
PD. Tell us the brief history of yourself.
SHOUT is a recently started band and consists of (me) Kriss Biggs -Bass, lead vocals, Rob Raw-lead guitar, Danny Diemond -lead guitar, and Ol´Hurricane -Drums
We all started up in different bands, tho everyone knew each other from the very beginning. We come from the same area in Sweden, and our paths crossed on concerts, parties and much more. So when I (Kriss) came up with the idea of starting SHOUT, it didn’t take long before the four of us had found each other making way for what was to become SHOUT
PD. Who are your musical influences?
We have influences both from heavy metal, rock n roll and punkrock. It is bands like AC/DC, Judas Priest, W.A.S.P. KISS, Iron maiden, Motorhead,Turbonegro, Rose Tattoo, Ramones, Misfits, Danzig To mention a few, and of they’ve had a big impact on how to write music, they are the once that have teached us how to play music and given us our life style.
PD. What are your dreams and goals?
To spread our music as much as possible and to be able to play all over the world and awaken the party animal and get some heads banging!
PD. Who writes your songs, what are they about?
This first album I wrote all the songs since it was a project a have had in mind for some time, but in the future we all will be writing songs. Well I think they are mostly about the rock and roll lifestyle itself, I guess its the usual stuff like fast cars, girls, rock n roll but also the freedom this lifestyle gives you, and the bond the music gives us and unites all headbangers out there!
PD. How do you promote your band and shows?
We promote ourselves mostly though facebook and our record label do it though their channels.
PD. What do you think about downloading music online?
I think its great! It gives us the chance to reach people all over the world that likes our music.
PD. What song do you wish you’d written and why?
Ooh there are plenty but the first one that comes mind is Ace of spades with Motorhead because its an undying classic that will live forever!
PD. What are some of your pet peeves?
Probably that everything always takes more time then you expect.
PD. What is your proudest moment in music?
Well every time you get to release a new album and get the fruits of all the hard work put in to it is a proud moment, so hopefully our next release will be the proudest moment!
PD. So what are you working on at the moment?
At the moment we are working on getting our second music video out there titled “SCREAM! SHOUT!” and we are also prepping for our debut album release this fall that will be titled (the same name as our first single) “PEOPLE OF THE NIGHT” so really looking forward to that!
PD. Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.
We don’t know at the moment when our next show is gonna be, it will probably be our release party and you should be there because it will be a high energy ass kicking show!
