How did you get your band name?
Manu, our lovely drummer, was bored at school and he love Cereals… he could eat a hole packet for breakfast, so he came up with the name and we all loved it!
How did you all meet?
Manu, Flow, and Pille, played in an former project together and when it dissolved, we decided to go on as new band. Manu know Winti from his first band. So we asked him to join us as bass guitar player. He showed up on rehearsal… never played the bass but only guitar. And now he’s our solo guitarist.
What is your song writing process?
Sometimes someone will have a full song which we will just all learn. Often, one of us has a good idea that we work out together.
What do you hoped to have achieved a year from now?
To find a new singer. Write a hole new LP, record it and play gigs in southern Germany, Austria, maybe the UK… that would be awesome!
Biggest challenge so far?
To record our DIY LP.. Everything was recorded by us in the rehearsal room. We had almost no idea and it was stressful, to get the right tone. We was all really nervous too!
Favourite thing about performing?
Definitely spend time with the guys, it’s just fun to be on stage.
Where is your dream place to tour?
Difficult… Northern Germany, GB, USA, cause people there listen more to our kind of music. To be honest, our hometown is a bit dead and boring…
What inspired your recent songs?
Life, personal experiences, what happens in the world, things like that.
What do you all do when you’re not musically involved?
Just working our jobs, we don’t have much time to do anything else other than music and work!
What’s your favourite song of yours?
This is difficult! We love them all.. they are our baby’s! Maybe ‘Friends’ cause it’s the first song we wrote all together.
Who has the worst dress sense?
No one, we all look good, all the time!
Funniest show story?
Pille gets lost in the intro riff, so that everybody hears it, turns around, acts as if nothing had happened and just keeps playing. Flow also passes wind a lot on stage.. the stench is unbearable.
Pizza! What do you all have?
Flow ( vegan/vegetarian), Winti (Pineapple), Pille ( Salami and cheese).
Most annoying member?
Sometimes Flow.. cause he is not that great in staying sensible in meetings. But also Pille, cause he often wants to do too much at once.
Who has the worst tattoo?
Pille and Manu, they have Blink 182 tattoos. Blink died when they did something with Lil Wayne…
