Corbeaux Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?

A lot of things have been done by Joris (Drums) and Mick (Guitar/Vocals) to be on schedule regarding the release of Kind Words; packaging, merchandising, booking, crowdfunders rewards.

2.You have a new album coming out this month, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

The band, throughout their two previous albums, never stayed stuck in one direction. For those who know us this one will be another turn to a more winding and disturbing music, . It's also a more accurate and honest way to introduce ourself to those who don't. 

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

Using vocals and writing lyrics are kind of new things for us, it gives more to the listener about ourselves and the way see the other people, the world. Mick is writing in french and then translates; from what I know, it's more relationship related. I mostly pick up funny and/or stupid quotes and phrases and make sort of a "collage" that eventually mean something to me.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Corbeaux'?

Obviously, the bad and evil way we see this bird but also the way it's depicted in many cultures, very interesting things to be known about raven and crows.
This is also used for cold wave fans and blackmailers in french, which we are not.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Unfortunately, not the last one. An electrical power surge blew two guitar amps!
The upcoming shows will many new things.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

Of course, from May 26th to June 5th with bands such as WarsawWasraw, As We Draw, BISON BISOU, Papier Tigre, Mars Red Sky; mostly in France.

7.The new album is going to be released on 'Vox Project', can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

It's a France based label and booking agency run by Gab. European bands, many views of the underground/DIY music scene, great!
Vox Project is helping us to sell and distribute the album.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of noise rock and hardcore?

The only link between us and the rest of the world are web zines chronicles and Bandcamp! Pretty good feedbacks on our last album which was labeled "post rock". Can't wait to hear from them about what we did with "Kind Words".

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

Can't tell, no plans, just let it go.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

A bunch of bands and styles, I'm always surprised to find interesting things in works that are far away from what we do. Arbouretum's "Coming Out Of The Fog", Clipping's "CLPPNG" and Plebeian Grandstand's "False Highs True Lows" are my favorites today.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

Mountain Biking and staring at a screen like a zombie.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Don't be afraid of what you don't understand
