Interview with Fallen Angels

Hi! Tell me about your band and what kind of previous experience do you have as musicians?

Hello! Fallen Angels were born in 2011 from an idea by Matthew Ice and Ste Wizard. Born as a cover band of a genre that had influenced the world of music in the eighties, the Glam Rock! Among the covers there are the biggest hits of bands like Motley, Ratt, Guns’n Roses and Aerosmith. In addition to the songs of the most famous artists, the group wants to revive in their gigs the true atmosphere of a concert of that period with related costumes and scenography. In 2014, with the entry of the new frontman Matty Mannant and subsequently the drummer Luke Gyzz, the group begins to dedicate itself to make their own songs. In our past each of us was part of different realities that were then incorporated into our first full album – Even Priest Knows -.

Why did you pick your band name? How did you form? Why did you decide to play the genre or genres you do?

The name of our band derives mainly from the Poison song “Fallen Angel” with the simple addition of the plural “s”. It is, moreover, an expression that is also used in some lyrics of the bands we are inspired, as “Wild Side” of Motley Crue … We find it a lot of eighties … Ours is a formation born initially of musical friendships and then, with the desire to create his own personality, he wanted to enrich itself with increasingly willing figures that allowed the writing of our record. As previously mentioned, ours is a desire to bring back and revive the glam rock genre of the mid-80’s that has marked our lives and that even today we listen to on the radio.

What can you tell us about your latest record?

Even Priest Knows is an album of 10 tracks very various, from songs direct to real reflections on modern society, touching topics such as loneliness, war, alienation, viciousness, themes with a simple appearance but surrounded by multiple meanings, sometimes with unruly peaks of sinfulness and esotericism, all surrounded by riffs of pure rock ‘n roll and sharp melodies. In the disc the sound touches different shades of the 80’s period (pop, rock, metal, blues …), but never untie from its genre. It ‘a record that does not want to make a copy paste of a song but wants to pay homage in the complex to the 80’s.

What the kind of album feedbacks are you waiting for?

We are receiving interest from all over the world and we are receiving more than positive reviews from more magazines and we are very happy! We are happy that the work done is appreciated!

Are you gonna to make some world tour in the future? Do you think this is available for everybody option to tour around the globe? What do you think band have to do to get such opportunity?

Maybe … Meanwhile, we try to make ourselves known as a band by running our album and our video clips. I think that if we were offered the chance to play our music in the world, no one would certainly run away … In order to succeed in our goal, continuing to work to improve is the only way to go.

Do you believe in heavy music scene without money?

Now I think it’s difficult to live with music alone … Only big names can afford it. There are many groups that deserve but unfortunately if they are not pushed and supported by some big label, they have no career opportunities. I believe that, as in other fields of life, help is needed to live with music.

What do you think about online music sharing? Do you ever give your music away for free? Why?

Sharing music is a double-edged sword. On one side it allows you to get to know you and maybe get noticed by someone, while on the other side takes away the chance to earn money from your work. We believe that a fair compromise is needed to repay the work and commitment that is dedicated to the composition of an album. For now the only free music we are giving is sent to the radio and magazine for reviews, an example track on the page of our label, as well as for the video just published on our facebook page and certainly others that we will publish. A right taste to advertise the content of our album and let us know by rockers!

Who are your musical influences? Have you ever think your band could be so famous as your favorites?

Our main influences are the glam and hard rock bands of the mid-80’s. Poison, Motley Crue, Europe, Ratt, Aerosmith …. All these great artists have influenced our music and well … I think it would be a dream to reach their levels of fame and success.

Do you have a formal music education? Do you think it’s a Kind of important thing?

Some of us have had music teachers to learn how to play their instrument best while others are self-taught. We think it is fundamental to study the music and the technique of execution and it is also a great help for the composition of a song. However, we find that being self-taught can be positive for the creation of a piece because it allows you to get out of any musical scheme. In our band we have therefore found a good feeling between people of completely different education … simply musicians who create the music that inspires them the most!

How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, children, job?

Good question … We must be able to create our own moments to work on the songs and even if sometimes you are in trouble with the work or with other you have to be able to find the time for music that is still a passion and therefore not as stressful as the real work … As for the family we are all single because we are not reliable people … hahahaha.

How do you handle mistakes during a performance? Or you can assure there are no any mistakes during your gigs? Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?

The mistakes can happen in our gigs because we put much charge during the performance, it’s difficult to be perfect and precise when you jump off the stage or climb on the table of a pub, while people scream and push you! But at this point, the charge and the public raided counts more than every other thing! Obviously we try to always play the best! Absolutely yes! It is not nervousness but healthy emotion and desire to do well! I think it’s important to feel that your heart beats hard before a live … It means that what you do you like!

What’s next? Thank you!

Now we are focusing on the promotion of our album and to play concerts we hope more and more important and then be able to work on the sequel to Even Priest Knows! Now you can see our first music video for the song “The Force in the Mind”, we are currently around 30,000 views getting during only three weeks from it’s release on our Facebook page.

Thanks to all you for the interview, I remind your readers to follow us on our Facebook page FALLEN ANGELS GLAM ROCK and to support our music by buying our album Even Priest Knows !!

Goodbye see you soon! SEE YA !!!
