What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.

We like the connection created between the band and the listener which we first experienced ourselves as younger fans of other bands. Music is like a virus and once we got it, we continued doing it to this day.

Provide us with some info about your latest release…

We published a video clip of our song “Vicious Circle” and several other songs are available on youtube.

Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?

Everything from Lemmy to Markos Vamvakaris…

In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?

Fast melodic punk rock with elements of anything that has something to say.

Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…

We would take a lot but will there be a power source?

Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?

We like the creative group work in the studio and to make some noise when we’re on stage.

Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?

Our first live was in a pizza place, the floor was slippery and our drummer Panos had to manually bring back the floor tom when he’d hit it.

Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?

We would pick out “Vicious Circle” which features a fast rockabilly main riff and a more melodic punk rock chorus. Also,a song we are working on right now “Capitalism Motherfucker” which has many twists and we have worked all together with our current line-up.

Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?

We are writing new material and we want to record it and present it live as soon as possible.

Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…

What does your band’s name stand for?

Stand My Ground speaks to us as a name on a daily basis. When you are pushed around at work and society, standing your ground is often the only option.
