ToxicRose Interview (Trash Fest 2012)
Hey guys how are you doing?
How does it feel to be playing Trash Fest?
How close are you to releasing the new album? You're quite a new band so there is not much of your music out there yet!
Michael: We have a new EP coming out
Tom: Later this year
How do you describe your musical style to someone who has not yet heard you?
Tom: Aggressive, emotional and very melodic
Who are your influences?
Andy: So many
Is there one band that you all love loads?
So you've all been in other bands like lipstixx N bulletz, gemini five, sexydeath, have your experiences with these guys helped with the process of songwriting?
All: Yeah *nods*
Are any of you still involved with these bands?
So you're all completely dedicated to toxic rose now?
Tom: It's like 100% toxic rose!
What are your plans for 2013?
Michael: Lots of touring probably
Any chance of a UK tour? I hope so!
Michael, a question for you! Your brother is obviously the successful Martin Sweet from the band CRASHDIET, does this put pressure on you or influence you to follow in his footsteps?
Michael: Follow in his footsteps. It's always been like that. We're brothers, I always wanted to be him *laughs*
How will you differ from other sleaze rock bands?
Michael: We don't call ourselves a sleaze band.
Tom: We play metal.
How important is image in music?
Tom: Pretty important, look at Kiss
But it is a lot of effort for shows, and after shows taking it all off as well!
All: yeah! *nods*
Please conclude the interview by telling us a random fact about yourselves!
All: Hmm...a random fact...
Tom: Yeah we have a roadie from the Czech republic. He's over there!
That's awesome! But why not Swedish?!
Andy: We found him in Czechoslovakia and we took him home.
Tom: He's good!
So he's like the fifth member
Well thank you very much for your time and best of luck with the show.
All: thank you
