[Interview] Down with Astray [GR]

Welcome to Downtuned
Tell us a few words about the group, when and where did you get started?
How did you meet?
The band was formed in 2007. We knew each other before Astray and some of us are old friends. The current line-up is the same from 2010.

Which are your musical influences?
Many kinds but mostly rock, metal and blues.

What are your lyrics about? What catches your interest?
The lyrics are about feelings, deeds and thoughts. We attend with anything that fires up our imagination and creativity.

Is the communication with the crowd something that you care about, in all levels, or do you do music for yourselves?
Communication with the crowd is first because we are a part of it. A live show is expression. We share our music and have a really nice and valuable time with the crowd.

Do you feel like you’re a part of a particular “scene” in which you would like to join and contribute or you are indifferent about it?
We play rock and we are trying to do our best for this scene.

How do you imagine that the band will be in ten years from now?
Pretty much the same with more experience and still thirsty.

Which famous artist you would like to do a guest to a record of yours and why?
There are many favorite artists that we would like to do a  guest but if we have to say one it is Wino because is one of our basic influences and a really good artist.

What plans do you have for the near future?
We are recording our first album which will be released in a few months and we are planning some live shows.

We wish you good luck to whatever you’re doing, the epilogue is yours.
Thank you very much. Cheers!
