In Other Climes Interview

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

We did a European tour last november. All the shows were great especially in France where we didn't play for a while.
We played new songs and the answer was really positive. We also already started to write new songs for, we hope, an upcoming split cd.

2.In February you have a new album, coming out, 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?

This album is once again different from the others and got more hardcore and punk influenced stuff.
Catchy chorus and rock'n'roll solos are still there, but it was done in a different way, with songs done
for live acts. The main thing on this record is that everything was done by ourselves. We did everything
on it : recording, mixing and mastering. It was important to us that the record sounds exactly the way
we wanted, and we are really happy of the result.

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

The album talks about everything from love to hate, from good memories to bad ones.
We are really proud of it because there’s a lot of cool punch lines, simple and easy to remember.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'In Other Climes'?

There no specific meaning but If i had to give you a meaning, it will be "it's how we see the things".
We always try to renew ourselves on each album, still keeping the essence of In Other Climes and
we do what WE love and what WE want to do, not what others want.

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?

Stage is the most important thing to us from the beginning. It's our battlefield, where we all love
to be and why we all make music. On stage there's no cheating, you only have 30 minutes
to kick ass people and it's what we like. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't but whatever
it happens, we always want to make better, even if the show was a pure mayhem.
Concerning the best shows we ever had, i will tell you Wolfsburg and Braunschweig (Germany),
Krakow, Zlotow, Poznan (Poland), Rouen, Limoges, Paris (France) and all the shows we did during
our Brazilian tour. It was a really good experience, very different from USA.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?

We have 2 European tours planed for february and may, few weekend shows and festivals.

7.In September you where a part off a split with 'Confronto', what are your thoughts on the other band that had participated on the recording?

We are really big fans of Confronto from the beginning. We met them back to 2008 while touring with our friends Paura (BR).
We did an insane show all together in a small and packed venue in Poland. A really good moment. Since, we did few shows
together and became friends. Last year, Felipe sent me an email asking me if we were interested to make a split cd with them,
I said "yes of course, lets do it !"


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

Feedback is being bigger everyday from everywhere in the world and we are really stocked.
Most of the shows and tours we make are really good and the audience is more and more
reactive to our shows, intense pit with everybody's screaming for our right to party.
That's the only rule ah!

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

Fuck the future !

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

We are all listening different kind of music. It goes from Electro or Alternative rock, to Black Metal and Grindcore.
But we all love Metal and Hardcore, fast and groovy rythms, catchy chorus, and heavy breakdowns.
While we were writing to the new album, we were listening to the same bands than ever, Metallica,
early Gallows stuff, Madball, Kickback, Cancer Bats, and many other good bands out there.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

Music is our life. Its all about writing, touring, playing, traveling and meeting people.

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

Thanks for the interview. Stay tuned for the upcoming album, music videos and tours.
See you in the pit!
