Interview with Jesse Barnett from Stick To Your Guns

I recently met up with Jesse Barnett, lead singer from Stick To Your Guns, in Cologne where the band supported Architects with quite the killer set. I've actually never seen a support band engage the masses as Stick To Your Guns have that night. But Stick To Your Guns isn't only a band that knows to stun on stage, but also one who knows that the kids nowadays need a type of music that inspires them. Their lyrics deal with social-political issues as you can hear for yourself on their brilliant new EP "Better Ash Than Dust". Needless to say that my talk with Jesse was everything but boring cause the dude got a lot to say. ...

Interview with Keith Murray from We Are Scientists

Here's another new interview I did with Keith Murray from We Are Scientists for Strife Magazine. Their new album "Helter Seltzer" is pretty amazing.

New Interview with Rou Reynolds from Enter Shikari For Strife Magazine

Big news from my little journalistic site projects: I've quit Alternative Wire some weeks ago and started writing for Strife Magazine. I feel like I've put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into my work at AltWire.net and got some awesome experiences which resulted in some cool interviews and articles in return, so it wasn't an easy decision to quit. Still, I needed the change and I'm super stoked to having joined Strife Magazine. The owner of Strife, Glenn, is from Amsterdam and started the online magazine only 8 months ago. During that time, he managed to build up quite the following on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Check out the website HERE. Interview with Rou Reynolds from Enter Shikari   Strife MagazineMy first interview on Strife Magazine was pretty special for me, because it was another one with the lead singer of my favourite band Enter Shikari, Rou Reynolds (you can read my first interview with him here). On one hand that made writing the interview questions very easy because I know the band by heart, but on the other hand I was pressuring myself quite a bit. My absolute nightmare is writing an interview with questions like "Soo, your band name sounds so wicked. What does it mean?" (*YAWN*) or any other question the band is asked numerous times throughout their career. Also, in case you don't know Enter Shikari, they are super smart and voice their opinions on social-political issues quite often. So an interview with them can be one of the best in your writing "career"! I ended up spending over a week just watching every interview with them on YouTube, before I felt confident enough to write up a bunch of questions and send them to their publicist. I'm quite satisfied with the result, but judge yourself. You can read an excerpt below: ...
