What was the stupidest interview question you’ve ever been asked?
Piotro: There once was this girl in Denmark who had no idea who we were so she asked “What is your band’s name?”.
I read you did a guerrilla gig in London to promote your last album, playing on the streets. What was that about?
Troels: It was for a Danish provocative artist who moved to London. We rented a van with a power generator and we went to a street with a lot of galleries that all had some kind of exhibition that day, so there were a lot of people in the street. We just parked our van in the middle, opened the back and started playing.
Mikkel: We also hired twenty naked people to run through the crowd covered in theatre blood screaming “Fuck you, art lovers!“.
Troels: After ten or fifteen minutes we packed up and left; the police arrived about ten minutes later.
You have a pretty special music style so you naturally get compared to a lot of different acts. Do you mind getting compared to other bands?
Troels: We get compared to so many horrible bands.
Mikkel: If it’s a band you really like then it’s fine, but if it’s some band we don’t relate to or don’t like then it’s annoying. The band we get compared a lot to is Muse which is okay.
Troels: The worst band we got compared to is Placebo. I hate that band!
Piotro: I think that’s cool. I really like them.
When you’re on tour, what’s the must-have thing on your rider?
Troels: We don’t have a rider. Our Manager always needs to have a bottle of Cava. I think that’s all we have.
Mikkel: Most places have beer and some food, that’s enough for us. We don’t need chocolate bars or anything fancy.
Troels: We should ask for puppies every once in a while. Or cats.
All: Oooh yes!
Troels: I think they would get killed after the show.
Mikkel: They have to get killed after the show as a sacrifice. Or before the show to get in the mood.
Describe your new album in six words!
Piotro: Vicious sex!
Piotro: When I think about it I think about “ax in the tits”
