WHAT INSPIRED THE ALBUM OR SINGLE?
Lyrically, the release is inspired by insecurities and failed love!
However, we wanted to give the listeners a happy feeling, while listening to our music, so that you can fight those darker themes with motivating songs!
CAN YOU SUM UP THE ALBUM IN A FEW WORDS?
„Soundtrack for the best day in the summer!“
WHAT RECORD CHANGED YOUR LIFE AND WHY?
Max: „Green Day - American Idiot: It got me into rock and punk music! I have memories to every single song!“
Dominik: „AC/DC - Who Made Who: „Just badass songs! Had it on my iPad back then!“
Alex: „AC/DC - Let There Be Rock: Introduced me to rock music!“
DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE MUSIC VIDEO FILMED BY YOUR BAND OR ANOTHER
Since we don´t have a music video made yet, we would like to name our favorties:
- Green Day - Walking Contradiction: Badass video, but also makes you laugh!
- Foo Fighters - Big Me: Nothing more to add………!
- Blink-182 – Bored To Death: Visualisation of an awesome day!
WHAT WOULD WE FIND YOU DOING WHEN YOU ARE NOT MAKING MUSIC?
Probably working for our schools and university or just hanging around with friends in town, having fun!
DO YOU GET NERVOUS PERFORMING LIVE, IF SO HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH THAT?
We do not get really nervous, but to come down a bit, beer can be very relaxing!
HOW DID YOU FORM THE BAND?
Vocalist Max basically founded the band!
(Max) „I asked Dominik (Drums) while partying in town and the we formed a band the next days, named „Scumbag“!“
The lineup of the members changed constantly over time until we found Alex as the missing part, that we have searched for.
Again we met while going out in town, and after a few drinks we talked about making music together! The next day, he was our new guitarist!
HOW DO YOU WRITE? - DO YOU HAVE A KEY SONGWRITER, OR DO YOU ALL WORK
Bassist Max and guitarist Alex write most of the songs! We come together with our ideas, and everyone adds his spice, starting from bass & drum fills, to harmonics and lead guitars, until we all are happy with our product!
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Awesome live shows, new music by our favorite artists or just life experiences, we think we have to immortalize!
WHAT IS NEXT?
We are currently looking forward to an end of this unusual situation, so that we can play live and make a great time for everyone again!
Besides we are writing songs all the time, and are passionate about more releases!
