thestompcrash_logoLetzte Woche fanden wir unser Fundstück in Italien und haben uns dort weiter auf die Suche begeben und sind über The Stompcrash gestolpert. 2002 gründete sich die Band in Mailand und musste fünf Jahre auf die erste Albumveröffentlichung hinarbeiten. 2016 werden die Fans wohl mit einem neuen Album rechnen können, wer sie in nächster Zeit in Deutschland live sehen möchte, der sollte am 21.03.2015 nach Berlin zum Dark Spring Festival fahren!

Last week we found our „Fundstück“ in Italy and after a short search we stumpled over The Stompcrash. The band was founded in 2002 in Milan and they worked five years for their first Albumrelease. In 2016 fans can expect a new one and who want to see the guys in Germany must go to the Dark Spring Festival in Berlin!

Who is behind The Stompcrash?
Behind The Stompcrash there is a band that for us means family, friendship and loving what we do together. In every band the most difficult part is to find a balance, we found that and we really enjoy to stay together, I think you can feel that during our gigs. Another side of the coin is not who is behind the moniker but what is behind this and we can definitely say the music.

What´s the special of the Band?
I think the most special thing is our sound, it’s not typical and not the same sound you can hear from others bands, it’s very personal and I guess that be italian can maybe help us on that, our musical traditions are very distant from gothic music and we are surely influenced by that apart from eighties gothic and new wave bands.
We dedicate a lot of time to find the right melodies, right sound and arrangement that convey the song with the right feel.

What would you like to achieve with your songs?
Making music and writing songs is one of the ways to express ourselves and the best achievement is to give emotions to people, we always feel emotions when we write and play a song. We enjoy all that comes making music. We meet a lot of people during our gigs, every time we come back home with a lot of new friends, this is one of the nicest thing.

Why did you startet with making music?
I guess we started making music simply because we loved it and we probably have thought… why don’t try? When you start you don’t think about what will come, you surely hope to be a successful band but it’s a very long way and you have to really believe in what you are doing. I think that after ten years, three album and a lot of concerts we can say that we are believers… in music.
But we still have a long of road ahead.

photo_thestompcrashWhich bands had an effect on your creativity?
As a gothic rock band we are surely mainly influenced by all the bands from eighties like Sisters, Bauhaus, Joy Division and we can go on, but all of us come from different scenes, different kind of music so we are influenced from all genres from punk to metal, from folk to classical music. We really have no limitations.
Is not only music that influence us, a lot of inspiration comes from writers especially from classical authors like Poe, Lovecraft, Chekhov and Wilde above all others.

What kind of music you listen to at home, on the road or by doing sports?
As I said you we listen a lot of genres but nowadays we prefer to listen to all underground bands, it’s not only a way to support but there are really great and precious bands.

Wishes for the future? Which goals you have? What´s the next? Tour? Studio? Something completly different?
In the next future we are going to release a new song with a new video, will be a foretaste of the new album we started working on and will be probably released in the first months of 2016. This year will be dedicated to write new songs and touring all around Europe, we already planned gigs in Germany and UK.

A band has to pass many ups and downs. So what was the absolutly highlight in the past and what the bitter low-point?
Every release of a new album it’s an highlight for the band, it’s like a new born and new life is injected to go ahead. We really like that moments of milestones creation.
The worst time for The Stompcrash was just after the release of our first album, Requiem Rosa, our bass player and friend left the band and we had a stop of one year due to depression at first and to reorganization, we were a very young and inexperienced band so was very difficult to stand up again. It’s always a bad thing when you lose a bandmate, we recently changed our drummer, Lexxy is our new bandmate, but is a completely different thing because Diego still a family member and we were prepared to that.
