An Interview With Scarecrown

Just a few weeks away from playing the Femme Metal Fest, Scarecrown are preparing for their first ever UK gig, and after the success of 'Letters From The Darkness', they're in for a warm welcome from UK fans. Antonella, Andrea and Grave discuss gigging, recording and the success of 'Letters...'.

AvernaX: Where are you touring at the moment?

Antonella: Actually we’re in the studio preparing and recording our new album that, we hope, will come out the sometime early next year.

AvernaX: Have you ever played in the UK before?

Andrea: No it’s our first time with the band in the UK. We hope everything goes great as we would like to play the UK again in the future.

AvernaX: What are you most looking forward to about playing the Femme Metal Fest?

Andrea: Well, we’re hoping for a good, positive reaction from the crowd, we hope to have fun (but we are sure of that already) and this festival is a good showcase for us because we are looking for a new label for our forthcoming CD.

AvernaX: What other festivals have you played before? Are you lined up for any in the near future?

Antonella: We played for the first time in Austria at the Styria Rock Festival in August, and we’ve played in many metal fests around northern Italy. Actually we are in contact with a big female voices fest, but we have no confirmations yet!! Let’s hope for the best!

AvernaX: Your song 'My Own Devil' was used on the Femme Metal compilation CD- how successful has the CD been since its release?

Antonella: Very successful actually. Since 'My Own Devil' was used on the Femme Metal compilation CD we’ve noticed a rise in requests on our websites and this is also true for the success with 'Letters from the Darkness.' in general. We’ve sold very well and we’re very pleased because it was our first full length album and it is the first piece of our path to something bigger.

AvernaX: What can you tell us about the new album you are working on?

Grave: Our new album will be much heavier than 'Letters', our new songs are faster and heavier even though we haven’t forgotten our melodic aspects.

AvernaX: Who are Scarecrown's musical influences?

Antonella: Inside the band we have many influences from Machine Head to Volbeat, every one of us has a favourite kind of music and this is a good thing because we have many various ideas for the drawing up of a song.

AvernaX: What have Scarecrown got planned for the near future?

Grave: First of all, to finish the new album, and second, to go on with the live gigs outside the Italian borders.

What's Next?
