In this new interview, we talk with the band about their new release, inspiration, music influences and future plans. Check it out bellow:
Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?
The idea of the name of the band comes from our music that is a constant flow of emotions that we give to the listener and the evolution at the same time of our musical style, here is the name EVEN FLOW.
Why did you want to play this genre?
We play this genre because since we were children we were and still are fans of Angra, Dream Theater, Stratovarius, Fates Warning and Queensryche! And we love this kind of music with all our heart!
Did you know each other before the band was formed?
Absolutely not with Marco (the singer) and Luca (the bassist) we have only known each other for 6 years!
Each band member's favourite band?
I really like Angra, my brother Giorgio i Dream Theater, Marco and Luca I don't know if they have favorite bands!
Who or what inspires you to write songs?
It depends, it often happens to take walks by the sea or when I go to see a bit of nature in the park, I get them a lot of inspiration in writing the songs, sometimes it happens when I'm in the car that I come up with ideas and from there I develop the song later!
Where was your last gig?
I can tell you that the last tour we played was in England! Dated January 2020, after that moment there as you well know there were the events of Covid that shocked the world, we promise to soon embark on a new tour!
Whom would you like to feature with?
I'd love to with Bruce Dickinson, the lead singer of Iron Maiden! That would be super Cool!
Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?
There is no fear, but there is always adrenaline before every concert. honestly I could not give a right advice to those who begin to tread the first stages .. I think the more you play, and you do a lot of concerts, the more you can manage fear better!
What bands have inspired you the most?
The bands that inspired me the most are Angra, Dream Theater, Stratovarius, Fates Warning, Queensryche, The Police, Queen and Italian music!
What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?
I have not had this luck haha usually they are always super kind, the only thing they ask me is a photo, the guitar pick, or sign some cd!
What do you think of your fans?
They are the best in the world!
