INTERVIEW: Aaron’s Agony

1. Tell us who you are and where you’re from.: Gabry and I (Max) are brothers, Eros was one of Gabry’s classmates in high school, Fra is our neighbor, we’ve literally grown up together since we were just children, while we’ve met Johnny through Eros: they attended the same high school, Eros asked him to join our band and now he’s one of our greatest friends, too. As for where are we from, we live in Spotorno, a small seaside resort of northern Italy where in summertime there’s plenty of people and it’s a great place to live in, but in wintertime there’s almost no one around and the atmosphere is quite upsetting, there’s nothing to do!

2. Describe your music.: We don’t want to put a definition-tag on our music. Listeners will define it the way they feel it. We are just 5 guys that love rock and roll! We’d like to be appreciated the way we are.

3. Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.: Aaron’s Agony was formed in 2008 after the demise of our previous group, The Choice, where Gabry (drums), Max (guitar/backing vocals) and Zack(bass/lead vocals) played. They have then been joined by Eros Pedone, aka Diè (lead vocals) and Gionata Damele, aka John (guitar/lead vocals), to form the present line-up. Today we are 5 friends bonded by brotherhood, passion for music and constancy!

4. What did you do before you were in a band?: Before we formed a band, we used to spent our afternoons playing football, videogames, flirting with girls…in other words, what typical teenagers are used to! Then, one day, we decided we wanted to create a band: we wanted to do something constructive, something that we liked, too, and music was something that we all shared and after a few time it became our passion.

6. What’s the band up to over the next few months?: Promote our album the best we can, we hope to play our music everywhere in the world and share the stage with many other bands. And to start working on the next album.

7. Best item of fan mail you’ve ever received?: One of our fans has sent us an email asking for our tracks tabs to play some cover music to upload on Youtube.

8. What music do you have on repeat in the tourbus? : Usually, we listen to A Day To Remember, Story Of The Year , Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Parachutes, Limp Bizkit, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Motley Crue and many others..

10. What’s your best on-tour story?: Well, it happened once, just before a live show, that lots of beer ended up on my trousers: they were so damned wet that I had to play in underwear..

11. What do you demand on your rider?: Since we are an up’n’coming band, we don’t ask for great stuff: just beer, water and food…whatever comes then is a plus, a well welcomed plus!

12. What’s your website?: http://www.myspace.com/aaronsagony
