Interview: Estrlla'HRH AOR'

I said to the band that the first time we had seen them was at HRH where their set list was fraught with technical difficulties. But since them a lot has happened. They said that yeah things have been great, and they have received some great reviews. When I questioned further about the technical difficulties they were perplexed until when I mentioned Paul doing his Freddie Mercury thing. We then went on to discuss stages times for that day. They said they were to be play the second AOR stage at 9.50 and they were really looking forward to it. The only problem the stage wasn’t opening till late so they hadn’t had an opportunity to check things out. They did say that before we headed over to the stage, we would have to go and grab a beer as it was a long walk to the stage and there was no bar there.

I asked whether the band prefer to play intimate small stages or the larger stages on tour. They went on to explain that it doesn’t matter to them as they make the most of any stage that they are given. Their album ‘Come Out To Play’ was released last year, shows what the band are all about. Good friends and family that can have a good laugh, which provides a great chemistry in the band. Which means they get to live hard, play hard. After the HRH AOR performance I asked what the rest of the year had planned for the band. They were going to HRH Ibiza with our friends ‘Chemical of Democracy’, then Les-Fest Scotland’s greatest rock festival. You can check out the rest of the dates at Apart from that the guys weren’t able to say to much as nothing had been confirmed so we will just have to watch this space, all we know is that they play the Railway, in Bolton on the 10th May. Luke and Paul both said that they would love to do a European and US tour, but as the band are self-funded this could prove a little difficult.

The guys added that they are hoping to get an EP out towards the end of the year, which should be good and well worth looking forward to. Estrella are our band of the month for April, so check out the review of their album done on the website.
