In Corona Corner, we are asking musicians how the outbreak has effected them, how did they adapt to the situation, what did they learn. Greek band TRAILER PARK GIRL shares his Corona experience with us today.
Hi! How are you doing during corona outbreak?
We are doing Just fine! We happen to be a band that started during the corona virus outbreak but things are going pretty good for us given that we are having the cgance to distribute our music to the crowd.
What have you cancelled/postponed due coronavirus?
Nothing yet! As we said before, we are a new band starting a few months ago, so things have been moving pretty OK at the moment!
How the global coronavirus pandemic is directly impacting bands?
Many of the supporting bands in our country decided to pause or even terminate their career cause there weren’t many places to play their music live.
How are you keeping your fans during this chaotic period?
Our fans came here to Stay! They are absolutely and utterly loyal to us and they have done a pretty good job in supporting us!
What will metal look like when we re-emerge from isolation?
We hope the whole genre will be resurected again and more metal bands will emerge to the surface of the greek metal scene.
Who will suffer the most after all: musicians, organizers promoters…
We know for a fact that everyone has had a difficult time.. We can not point out one due to the fact that we are co-dependant.
What is your isolation soundtrack?
Many people has Disturbed’s ‘Down with the sickness’ as ana isolation soundtrack but for absolutely no reason we have Suzie Quattro’s ‘I wanna be free’ as an isolation soundtrack cause we hoped that some time the horror of the pandemic would STOP and we would be free from all that jazz.
Besides gigs, what/whom do you miss the most?
We miss partnership with other bands from our home town. We used to have a community and we miss that a lot. We have been less and less bands since the outbreak of the virus.
Do you have any rehearsals during quarantine? If yes, how do they look like?
Oh yes, we do rrhearse a lot and we did stay united! They were at a home studio Just to avoid the hazards of going to a studio that more people visit.
Thanks a lot!
Thank you so much for your time. Stay safe!
