TM - What can fans expect from your new album Breathe in colours ?
MS - It is always hard to ask someone who just made it because it's so hard to put it down in words. For people who have experienced a previous album, I definitely think this has been a growth. We have been experimenting a bit more and really getting into our music developing it a bit more and definitely making it more unique for people who haven't heard us before. We are a ternative rock band but you can also call us metal as well we like to mix a lot of influences big heavy rests with catchy choruses and quite a few electronic elements.
TM - What was your writing and recording process of Breathe in colours?
MS - It was a bit odd for this one because when we started writing this album we didn't have a place to live and our apartment was being renovated. We had to rent this small place we just brought the essentials, a drum machine, a microphone and their guitar. We have a very basic setup but it kind of work because that lettuce concentrate on good old song writing but not the whole production surrounding it some of the recordings we did ended up on the final album.
TM - What was your idea for your Album cover for Breathe in colours?
MS - I have been designing it editing it and putting it all together. At first look at looks dark and gloomy but in reality it's bursting with colours there is binary code in the background which is commonly known as computer language all around the world.
TM - How did you come to get singed be Nuclear Blast?
MS - We have been doing our band DIY style for a couple of years and trying our very best to promote our own music, Nuclear Blast saw what we were doing and liked the videos so they said let's meet up and discuss a record deal.
TM - Can we expect you in Australia anytime soon?
MS - I hope so, for now we have only been in Europe and I think that's going to the the plan for 2019.
TM - You released an acoustic version of Miss Madness what inspired you to do this?
MS - We are going to do an extended version and a limited version of the album the label asked us to do extra tracks whether it was acoustic tracks or remixes or so. We choose three songs to go acoustic with I think it brings a whole new five and emotion to this song.
TM - Will you ever do an acoustic tour?
MS - We are definitely not opposed to that.
TM - If you could have any bands play one of your songs which band would it be which song would it be and would it be in your style or their Style?
