Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey thanks for having us! We passed last 6 months moving from Italy to UK, building our new studio and rehearsal space by ourselves and writing the new album. Man, what a long journey but we are loving every single bit of it!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Anything”?
“Anything” is the last single off our past record “Loveproof”. We recorded the music video in August aiming to release it on October but then we decided to move to UK.
Like I said it’s been an insane half a year but we are so happy about it and so excited to release this awesome video!
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Every song I write has got a story behind it.
I write about love because love is what makes the world move. I am not talking just about the love between two lovers, but even for an ideal, for a place or for a single moment that we’ll never forget.
How was the film experience?
Every single video we ever put out was recorded by our best friend Flavio (Flaview – Flavio Gasperini Productions). This video has been shot inside Riccardo’s old house in Italy, in the hottest days of last summer! Shooting a video it’s always stressful and tiring, but when you see the final work you understand that everything was worth it!
How was the recording and writing process?
We change musical approach for every album. So if the first album was made entirely in the sweaty rehearsal room, the second one was an hybrid between the same thing mixed with the pre-production way. This adds more possibilities and layers to the song and it flows so much better because you can judge the song not by playing but just hearing it. We are doing something really crazy for this third one but we don’t want to spoiler!
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
As we said before we are currently working at the new album and we are more than excited to say that’s really powerful and in the same time weird. We can’t wait to let you hear something!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
It’s too early about this, but we’d say expect it before 2017 finish!
Would you call this a departure or a follow up of your previous record?
We would say that’s a completely another thing, but with the same Outta Peak vibe you know and love (hopefully hahaha)!
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes of course! Here you go:
March 18th Hairy Dog, Derby
April 8th The phoenix bar, High Wycombe
May 25th The Scene Club, Swansea
May 26th Sanctuary Live, Basingstoke
May 27th The Booth Hall, Hereford

What else is happening next in Outta Peak’s world?
What else is NOT happening next in Outta Peak’s world! Except of having the new studio we are building a team around us, we are working with William from High Tide Booking Agency, Garry of SanPR and we are actually in touch with a bunch of record labels.
