INTERVIEW: Soldiers Of A Wrong War

Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Hello everyone, thanks for having us. We’ve been great, we’re very excited cause we’re about to release a new single and we can’t wait to hear people’s response to it.

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “We Will Never Fall”?

“We Will Never Fall” is the first track that we wrote after releasing our last EP, in late 2014. We were starting to write some new material and suddenly we came out with this song and we immediately thought. “Damn, this is pure fire, we gotta track this down in studio as our first single for a new album”. And so we did! We were extremely satisfied with the sound and the mood of this single, it perfectly represents how the new album will sound and we can’t wait to release more tracks and share them with the whole world.

Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

We wrote this song thinking about how the world in which we live in is full of contradictions and no one seems to care about it, it seems that everyone is ok with the concept of truth that has been designed for us and most of us don’t care to dig deeper, to inform themselves about what the real truth is because 99% of the time you never know the truth, you know ‘a’ truth. Don’t be told what can or can’t be done, question everything and always try to listen with the intent to understand, not with just the intent to replay.

Any plans to release a video for the single?

Actually yes, the single will be available on June 7th with its own official music video. You can find the video on our YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/SOAWWchannel, don’t miss it and if you like it, share it with your friends!

How was the recording and writing process of the new album?

The writing and recording process of our new album took a lot of our time, we wanted to be sure about every single detail of every single track. Every time we write a song we feel like that song is our newborn child, we track down a pre production and we listen to it several times to understand how it can be improved, which are the best arrangements and which are the best vocal lines and lyrics. It’s one of the most exciting things to do together, there will never be a better feeling than the one you get when you write music, it’s like creating immortality cause that specific mood, melodies and lyrics will always be there inside that song, not even time will be able to destroy it because it’ll be available forever. That’s one of the many exciting rewords that music is able to give you.

Do politics play a role in your music?

Not really, we prefer to speak about everyday life and about stories in which everyone can relate to. We like to create a connection with our listeners and most of all we like to write songs which can help people to feel better. Music isn’t just a simple passion or a hobby for us, it is devotion and commitment, it’s the chance to help people by giving them that one moment in which they feel free and safe by listening to one of our songs.

After the 1st album, how would this album showcase a new and matured side of the band?

I think that people will feel that the sound of this album is more mature because we released our first album more than 5 years ago, we had the chance to grow, to experience some changes in our lives and we started to listen to many different types of music, having the chance to absorb something from every new artist we fell in love with. We mixed all of that with the Soldiers Of A Wrong War imprint creating something that we’re really proud of.

Speaking of album, how’s that coming along?

It’s definitely coming along great! We finished the recording process of the new album a couple of weeks ago, we are extremely satisfied with the outcome so far, the songs sound amazing and we can’t wait to release them. Right now we’ll release a first single, which will be included in the album, to see what people’s response will be and we’ll try to see if we get some labels interested in our project. We didn’t decide to become musicians yesterday, we’re working on that since more than 9 years now and with this new album we wanna see if we’ll be able to build the foundations on which we’ll raise a solid career.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

At this point we still don’t have a release date for the new album, we hope we’ll be able to share it with our fans around this fall. Talking about the title, we chose one and we’ll reveal more about it soon so stay connected with the band on our social networks!

Any plans to hit the road?

Definitely yes! We’ll do some promo dates for the release of the new single, trying to reach as many people as possible and as many cities as possible. Touring is the lifeblood of a band, we can’t live without the chance to play live shows and we can’t wait to hit the road once again.

What else is happening next in Soldiers Of A Wrong War’s world?

We’ll keep on working hard on our music, trying to reach each and everyone’s ear out there. After releasing the new single, we hope we’ll have the chance to find the support of a good label that could be interested in working with us on the development of the release of the new album.
