Black Income Danish Alternative Rock Band – Interview With Rock ‘N’ Load 28/03/2018 14 Danish Alternative Rock Band combining Grunge, Fuzz and Stoner into a deadly cocktail. Praised by critics for their latest album “Noise Pollution”. Black Income was formed in 2011 by four three with an ambition to create rock music; honest rock music inspired by the early 90’s when grunge was the sound. After only one year together, in 2013, Black Income entered the legendary Medley Studio in Copenhagen, where bands like Radiohead, D-A-D and Kent has recorded some of their best albums. They teamed up with Soren Andersen (Glen Hughes, Mike Tramp, D-A-D) who produced what would become the new album ‘Noise Pollution’ ‘Noise Pollution’ is twelve hard-hitting and extremely well-written rock-tunes with focus in the riff and the catchy melody in contrast to the solid Stoner/ Fuzz-Riff’s are the core of the bands colored tunes, where anything can happen. The best way to describe Black Income, is a new rock identity emerged from the Grunge wave in the early 90s, combined with elements from today’s Fuzz-Rock. Black Income may be inspired by acts like Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Fu Manchu, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots, but the sound and feel is their own. This is truly a unique rock band. I first wanted to take the time and thank you for doing this interview with me today. For our readers who haven’t heard of you yet, can you tell us about yourself and anything about the band you’d want us to know? Who have been your major influences in your writing style? Thank’s for having us.. Black Income is Solid Style – Alternative Hard Rock Band that’s how the media often describes us.. We started out in 2011/2012 and our Debut Album ‘Noise Pollution’ came out in 2016,same year we just got Nominated by Danish GAFFA for “The best Hard Rock/Metal Release in 2016”, along with bands like VOLBEAT, PRETTY MAIDS etc.. so was quite exciting although we didn’t win the price.. Besides Touring in Europe 2015/2016, we are now working on our next full album, and the first single is out now, and called “Feels Like A Storm” The single was recorded at the Legendary “MedLey Studios” in Copenhagen DK. with Soren Andersen (D.A.D / Mike Tramp / Glenn Hughes) as Producer once again.. We plan for the Album to hit the streets in the middle of 2018.. Let’s talk about what you currently have going on. Any new music or new tours in the works? If you were to say one song of your own perfectly sums up what you are all about which song would that be? Well we just released our second single from our forthcoming album to be released this summer, the title of the song is “DRUG” and it’s in fact the right opposite of what you properly would think of the title, it’s more like a Anti Drug uptempo Rock Tune for that matter.. It seems everyone is on drugs these days, so we thought hey, let’s do a song about how these stressed out weekend junkies look to us in public… we have a couple of gigs planed for now, but we will first start touring in the end of this year and start 2019… so the meantime head on over to Spotify and Youtube to check it out..

Describe to us what happens in a typical writing session. Well whenever a good idea comes to mind, we write or start writing, if it’s on the road we often just get the idea down, so we dont forget it… and later on we take to the studio and start writing more finished versions of our ideas, before recording them, it usually start with our singer Henrik who comes up with the basic ideas and riff’s and stuff like that. With the music industry always changing and evolving, what are the things you like and don’t like about it? What aspects of the industry do you feel have hurt or helped your career? If you could change anything about it, what would it be? Well we love the new industry in fact we think it’s being more meaningful than ever to be an independent artist, so when looking at how labels are doing, they are actually the ones having a hard time now that we mussiancs can send out our own music, and don’t have to cope with the old school model anymore.. and for social media and stuff like that it’s getting easier and easier to get a hold of your fans.. the downside is that there is so much crappy music out there today, that you need to keep fighting to keep you head above water, but that no different for the record labels, so now it’s a fair fight.. Do you or any of your band members have any side projects? If so, what are they? Yes are basplayer Micheal has a project called SUPERFUZZ, go check it out.. When you’re preforming how do you handle any mistakes on stage if they ever happen? Do you have any stories that stand out to you that you had to make a memorable recovery? That’s the beauty of live music, mistakes happen… and that’s when things really comes alive… How do you decide which songs go into a set when you perform live? Do you change up the sets or stick to a regular set list? Do you have any covers? We aim not to do covers, but we allways have different set lists to keep things alive… it gets boring when you just have one set to pick from :). If you had a choice to go on any bands tour, which tour would you pick and why? We would love to join a band like Foo Fighters or Alice in Chains, they are cool bands, and play great places.. we woudent mind that at all.. Do you have any advice for any upcoming artists? What’s the best piece of advice someone gave you when you realized you wanted to be a musician? Stay Strong, dont let anybody tell you what to do, put your self into it and people will notice… go for it… dont look back .. Any last words? keep track of us since there is alot new stuff comming your way these days :). http://rocknloadmag.com/album-review/earthless-black-heaven-album-review-2/ Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...
