In Corona Corner, we are asking musicians how the outbreak has effected them, how did they adapt to the situation, what did they learn. Waking The Sky bring a great mixture of heavy genres into their music as well as interesting answers on our nine Corona questions.
Hi! How are you doing during corona outbreak?
Hi to you and to all the readers of Team “Metal Jacket”. We’re fine, thanks, but this is a very sad moment for us and for all the people around the world… i am especially concerned about the world of music and art. (Matt)
What have you cancelled/postponed due coronavirus?
Fortunately the production of our first project has been completed last year, but we are currently forced to postpone the clip of the song “The Prison” due to the severe Covid restrictions applied in our country. (Matt)
How the global coronavirus pandemic is directly impacting bands?
The coronavirus spread is having a very negative impact on the music bands. Just take in consideration the prohibition of performing live concert and the reduction of the majority of the bands activities. As a consequence we are forced to find alternative solution in the web for keeping our passion alive, but it is not easy… when your dream is in danger, it hurts thinking that there is nothing that you can do. But we don’t give up and are waiting for the right moment to return working on our projects. (Matt)
How are you keeping your fans during this chaotic period?
Unfortunately at the moment we have to stop several activities. Anyway, also in those days, we aim to stay close to our fans thanks to social networks, updating them on future projects and entertaining them with beautiful homemade music videos. (Matt)
What will Metal look like when we re-emerge from isolation?
We hope that it will rise stronger then ever and full of energy for all the metal fans out there! And our wish is that there will be many new possibilities for emerging bands like us! (Matt)
Who will suffer the most after all: musicians, organizers promoters…
We don’t know… we just know that in this difficult period everyone has his/her own battle to fight. (Matt)
What is your isolation soundrack?
Personally the soundtrack that I’m really loving at the moment is “Atlas Fall” by SHINEDOWN. Meanwhile, we are planning an instrumental song called “Our Quarantine” for the next album. (Matt)
Besides gigs, What/Whom do you miss the most?
We just miss being together and playing together like a real band, we miss our friends and fans in front of the stage and in life… to put it simple: we miss living as musicians. (Matt)
Do you have any rehearsals during quarantine? If yes, how do they look like?
Unfortunately not. As i sad before, due to the restrictions applied in our country and in order to avoid possible risks of contagion, we have decided to put on hold the rehearsals hoping to be able to return to our work as soon as possible. (Matt)
