Sonic Circus – Interview
Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
A – We are a Modern Progressive Rock band with a dose of Funk!
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
A – Band formed in 2015. We have taken our time and honed our craft, played a few shows here and there and written and recorded our lives through that time.
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
A – Bands such as Tool, Alter Bridge, Van Halen, Shihad, GnR, Karnivool..Non Musical for me (Jimmy) would be Sylvester Stallone and Rocky Balboa 😜
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
A – Ultimately what this band is dreaming about is to be able to cover our costs of recording and promoting our releases. We don’t want to be a “big” band, we just want to be able to self fund our music and end goal is to have enough people interested in what we do to want to purchase our music and help us so we can keep making it. The goal is to write the best possible music we can.
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
Vik and Alan do most of the music, I write the lyrics and put in my music ideas as well. Many of the songs on this album deal with drug addiction, Mental health and pain but also coming out the other side.
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
A – We can’t play shows at the moment because of COVID so things are purely online for the foreseeable future.
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
A – I think it’s brilliant provided people PROMOTE the bands they love…it’s the smallest thing you can do for an artist, and we love those that help
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
A – Love Gun – KISS. What a song! And I could fly over the audience live
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
A – Autotune, Social Media (but it’s a necessary evil) and Crows (they are evil)
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
The release of this Sonic Circus album
PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
A – I’m working on Lyric Videos for our future singles!
PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from?
A – Sonic Circus release our first single, AEROPLANE, on August 14 from all streaming and digital platforms worldwide.
Thanks heaps for the interview!!
