WOULD YOU LIKE TO PRESENT US 'ROGUES EN VOGUE'?
It's a journey through our times... It's not a concept-album... I feel it
as a kaleidoscopic gathering of our ideas about some matters of everyday
life as well present/contemporary society... 'Draw The Line' deals with
people having troubles with boss, teacher or parents... The song 'The War'
is my reflection on First World War...and so on... No concept...so, but
various thematics dealed in...

ACHIEVED TO SUPPORT THE ALBUM?

And since various years...
WHAT'S ABOUT THE PRODUCTION OF ALBUM?
For the first time I decided to produce it for myself at Jolly Roger Studios...
I decided that to have the control of every details of our new album...
Having all the time to produce own album is important because you can define
its personality... Working on such way we feel more own 'Rogues En Vogue'...
The producing fits now our wishes... I mean we reached what we wanted...
THE ALBUM SHOWS A STRONG POWER ROCK BACKGROUND, RIGHT?
Absolutely... The songs are all ready for live... No gimnicks or overdubbings...
As matter of fact, there're no differencies between the sound we reached
in studio and our live sound... It's direct... It's really natural...
WHAT'S ABOUT THE FEEDBACK OF PRESS?
Very positive... The feedback is quite impressive... They know that we bring
only quality... We have own trademark... It's RUNNING WILD's tipical crunch!!!
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR SOUND?
Only positiveness... We're what we play... We don't like to hide us under
easy ways such loops, programmed sounds and effects... We're a direct in
your face band... Only that... It's a matter dealing with being honest with
ourselves and our fans...
We don't have plans for tour 'til present... We're discussing with all our
staff as well with booking agencies to schedule the things for more late
this year... Before all, we're working at the promotion of 'Rogues En Vogue'...
Then we'll mind up abour live activities...
