Interview With 'Seraphic Eyes'
Firstly, introduce yourselves and tell us a little bit about the band and how you came to be?
Hi, my name is Alberto and 7 years ago after a car crash, I spent some weeks at home with my guitar playing my old songs, and thanks to new technology I realized a demo that shocked me. I fell in love with that music and I was again in love to play music. That demo wasn’t completely horrible! ;)
After that I started to search for a drummer and found Azza. On bass guitar is Laura. At that moment Seraphic Eyes (my 20 years old band) was reborn.
What were you all up too prior to the band, was this always the chosen path or did you have other dreams and aspirations?
I work in advertising but from the first time I touched a guitar my instinct was write music and words. When I write something that is not shit, Azza and Laura accept it and together we create new songs.
Tell us about your latest EP/Album and why our readers should check it out.
We live in a world constantly described as without purpose, but we think that there are other ways, a better life together for everybody is possible. "Another Life" for our "Losing Souls".
In our music there are our thoughts, our mistakes and every solutions we found and tried. Our music is our HOPE and our often hard but proud way for a better life.
The album is produced by multiplatinum Pietro Foresti and Seraphic Eyes, mixed by David Gnozzi and Rich Veltrop and published by Vrec Music Label.
Have you ever come face to face with someone within the music scene who has left you awestruck and why?
I saw Chris Cornell in an unplugged show. Two hours with his voice and his guitar, I pass my life by thinking that he was the harder and stronger poet of the Seattle scene. But after that show I understood that he was probably one of the most delicate poets, a man with a big heart that could touch your soul even without a band and was amazing.
If we were to head out to one of your live shows what can ourselves and others expect?
We give all that we have in our shows so I think that you could find all our energy and all our hearts.
If you had one artist/band that you could go on tour with tomorrow who would it be and why?
Foo fighters. I know it looks like an obvious response but not for their fame, To go on tour with that
band could be great for their humanity, their pro attitude, their love for the fans and we could learn a lot and make a lot of noise together!
You can spend an hour with a musical icon living or dead, who would you pick, why and what would you speak about?
It's impossible to choose, I need 1 hour with Lennon for talking about humanity, 1 hour with Cobain for talking about life, 1 hour of guitar lesson with Hendrix and 1 hour with Elvis talking about how it is to be the King and how about his actual life on Mars! ;D I can't choose!!!
And finally and most importantly is Die Hard a Christmas Movie?
Die Hard is Christmas and John McClane is the best Santa that you could find!
