Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Fine, thank you for having us on your virtual pages.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Let Me In”?
It’s a Grungy/Rock song which opens PATBS .“Let Me In” is the irresponsible attempt to be part of another person’s life at all costs. Even if you are moved by noble sentiments, the result is always a tough series of consequences in a sick relationship between victim and executioner.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Everyday life gives us the inspiration to write songs, like (for example) when you hear about sick relationships and love that turns into obsessive thoughts and pain.
How was the film experience?
The videoclip experience was really amazing! It’s a DIY video, so we were really focused on our goal, but it was at the same time really funny. Our ideas were taking shape and we were proud of it. It is also an homage to the movie “ Let Me In”, well… it’s better to say that it’s a tribute to a kind of movie that we really love.
The single comes off your new album People Are the Best Show – what’s the story behind the title?
It is a quote taken from Bukowski. After all mankind provides us, for better or worse, it’s a great show and you don’t even pay for the ticket.
How was the recording and writing process?
All the music was written together at the end of 2014, and then came the lyrics. We had to interrupt our creative process because we won the Red Bull Contest, toured with Lacuna Coil, and made the “Because I’m Sad” single.
What was it like to work with Riccardo Pasini, and how did that relationship develop?
We have known Riccardo since our first Album “Ambush!” He is one of the greatest Italian Mixing Engineers and Music Producers. It was overwhelming, we laughed, we fought, but at the end we were truly satisfied.
What role does Italy play in your music?
It’s our home ground. It’s not the most Rock ‘N’ Roll nation of the Planet, but we have some really nice clubs and some cool bands. We hope that the Italy rock scene will keep growing and giving more and more opportunities for underground bands.
How much did he get to influence the album?
We are not influenced by the nation in which we live, certainly not musically. In the lyrics, for sure, there is some influence regarding the situation of social injustice which slays Italy. Riccardo Pasini definitely influenced our work more than Italy.
How did the 90’s get to influence the record?
The nineties have influenced us as a mindset to produce our record. Very long recording sessions, and very little use of the computer. Even the mistakes and imperfections if contextualized in the project can be beautiful.
What aspects of entertainment did you get to explore on this album?
Only the listeners can answer this question. We hope that we have transmitted all the energy of the moment in which we recorded. Good songs to sing along to with lyrics in which people can empathize.
Any plans to hit the road?
We are working on two new videos. One is for Italy and another one for Foreign countries. We will start our Italian Tour on October 20th, then we’ll play in Europe, and maybe one day (fingers crossed) in the U.S.
What else is happening next in Celeb Car Crash’s world?
We take what comes. We definitely play a lot and we hope to be the opening act for some big music act and travel the world. We try to have fun and try to be one of the best international Rock ‘N’ Roll bands.
