Twinmusix talk to Peter from Pain about their Australian tour and more
What can fans expect from your Australian tour?
A very good energetic show.
How do you pick your setlist for touring?
The promoters in Australia did a pool for the fans to choose the songs.
If you could have any band play one of your songs which band would it be which song would it be and in your style or their style?
Frank Sinatra play shut your mouth.
How did you come to get signed by Nuclear Blast Records?
I signed the first time in 92, with pain I signed in 96 and then released the first album in 97, after that I went to Universal and then in 2007 I want back to Nuclear Blast Records.
What was it like touring with Nightwish?
We had a great time we did the shows are them for 6 weeks It was a great time we had a lot of fun.
Do you think you'll work with Till Lindemann from Rammstein again?
I'm pretty sure that I will yes, we will let you know we have something happening.
You wrote your song pain in the ass with your manager how did this come about?
It was one of the last songs that need the lyrics on it, I started calling it as a working title pain in the ass because it was a pain in the ass to get it finished then me and the manager started spinning around on it and writing lyrics for it with pain in the ass in mind.
What's your favourite gig memory of watching someone else play on stage?
I was in Stockholm and watched Pantera play from the side of the stage.
What's your view on platforms like Spotify and Youtube?
I think it's a good promotional tool but it kills record sales.
If you could have any one of your song titles be your biography what would you have and why?
Probably pain in the ass because I am.
How did you come to work with Alexi laiho from Children of Bodom?
The first tour are they ever did was with hypocrisy and we stayed in touch, I did the follow the Reaper album with them.
Is there anything else you would like to announce to your fans?
