DUSK: Quarantine Story

by Ivona Bogner

In Corona Corner, we are asking musicians how the outbreak has effected them, how did they adapt to the situation, what did they learn. Today, DUSK share their Quarantine Story.

Hello! How are you doing during the Corona Breakout?
Hi, I am fine and staying safe. I am on a Europe trip right now and the city just went into lockdown, so we’re trying to keep it together haha.

What have you canceled/postponed because of the corona virus?
Nothing so far thankfully.

How does the global coronavirus pandemic directly affect bands?
Well, we know that bands rely on touring as part of their income, so with the initial lockdown rules artists have unfortunately suffered the most.

How do you keep your fans in line during this chaotic time?
I’m very active on my social media, contacting my fans directly through Instagram and my live sessions, where I like to invite random people over to have a conversation or answer a question someone might have.

What will metal look like when we return from isolation?

Who will suffer the most: Musicians, promoters…
I really believe that the musicians will and do suffer the most.

What is your soundtrack to isolation?
I just keep throwing myself into new music and releases from my favorite bands and related groups in the scene.

What/who do you miss the most besides your gigs?
Life before COVID -19

Do you have any rehearsals during quarantine? If so, what do they look like?
Well, since DUSK is my own musical project, I can do whatever I need to do, whenever it needs to be done, and that’s another thing I love about what I do: the musical freedom in what I do.

Thank you so much for your time. Stay safe!
