INTERVIEW: Shokran

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

-Hello to you, folks, we are fine and exited so much. Thank you!!!

Can you talk to us more about your single “Creatures From The Mud”?

-Yep, of course. That’s the very first and the only song from this brand new album. We’ve released it, first of all waiting for the feedback from our audience, fans and listeners, and we’ve received it. We’re assured that the very new material is being waited, and this is awesome. About the track itself it could be said that it’s only a 1/10th part of the whole concept. You will see the whole picture in the context of the album.

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

-Nope, Dmitry (composer) do everything by his inner inspirations, I do not think some particular event or action could inspire him more.

How was the filming experience for the video?

-It wasn’t easy at all. That’s not the first experience of filming, but this video was done on completely different level. Much more professional, much-much more, you are gonna see it when the new video will be released.

Talking about the video itself, it should be one with a strong plot. We tried to tell the interesting story with the musicians in the centre of the action.

The single comes off your new album Exodus – what’s the story behind the title?

-The name “Exodus” was created after a long brainstorm, while we’re thinking about the concept part of the album. And as a result we took the story about “Plagues of Egypt”, creating 10 stories, connected to each other.

How was the recording and writing process?

Writing process is fully on Dmitry, he’s the author’n’composer, and this secret couldn’t be revealed. To tell the truth – such points should stay behind the curtains, ‘cuz it’s very routine and difficult process, which isn’t important for anyone, but the musicians themselves.

I could say that sometimes we couldn’t leave home for days, just being in the process of recording or composing. It was very difficult but we hope – it worth it.

Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?

-The lyrics from this upcoming album was done by our good friend Victor Brazhnikov. So, that point is on him. About the song inspiration – a bit higher there was told that Dmitry is doing by his own inspiration, so it works for everything connected with music creation.

Any plans to hit the road?

-Touring you mean? Or is it something about giving up the music or something?

If you mean touring – so there are lots of plans and ideas about that, but first of all – album should be released, and only after that we could do any other steps. If you mean giving up the business – never of course.

What else is happening next in Shokran’s world?

-New music, new videos, we plan to growth as a band, and to do it you should move all the time, There isn’t different way.
