Italian born- Sheffield based heavy alt-rockers Outta Peak were featured asour trakc of the day with their awesome new track Anything (see it here). We asked the band to take on our A-Z challenge!
A song that made you want to make music?
There is one single song that made me pick up the guitar: Still Waiting by Sum 41. Oh man, what a song!
Best rider you’ve ever had?
Our last East European Tour was the one!
Craziest thing you’ve experienced in the band?
Last summer during the East European Tour we were in Ukraine, we played at the Rock Bulava Festival, it was crazy. After the show we’ve been stuck with the fans for 30/40 minutes, taking pictures with them and signing autographs. It was strange for us, but so cool!Then a wild fan appeared asking us if we could give him our four sweated shirts of the stage time, it was really really weird! Or maybe it was weirder that time that a fan asked for us to sign on her titties? Honestly I can’t choose between those two!
Deepest lyric one of your songs features?
“This here, it’s a long long night. Comparing real facts to how I feel. What you despise it’s what I care about I just can’t slow down my heart’s beating. Trying to forget, trying to regret, but if you are I am quite alright I’ve never sunk this low. Now I don’t feel anything at all, I feel nothing. Now I don’t feel anything at all, I feel loveproof”
Easiest song you wrote?
I’d say “Megan Fox” off our first album. Total amount of three chords, but they work very well together, don’t they?
Favourite song in your set?
We don’t have an absolute favourite song because from time to time the preference changes.
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
Vic Fuentes from Pierce The Veil for sure.
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Accepting the “no” that you get on a daily basis.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
Riccardo, he breaks everything he touches! A quick example is that he had to buy a new bass, amp and cab a week before last tour. Safe, right?
Jokes you have in the band?
As you know, our band is half Italian and half English, it’s always funny talk about the accents and the diversity of the language that we have inside of the band.
Key to writing a song?
It’s a cliche, but being inspired and with a guitar in the nearing!
Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?
Szeged (Hungary) to Perugia (Italy), 12 hours straight and 1300 km.
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
We grew all up with different kinds of genre, but at the moment we can probably say that one of our favourites is Pierce The Veil. Oh, and Northlane too.
New band you’d recommend?
Blood Youth! They just released a insane new single, check them out guys!
Opening for this band would be ideal?
I would say Pierce The Veil, again.
Place you’d most like to tour?
We played all over UK and Europe, we’d love to tour in USA and Japan one day.
Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?
From “It’s Raining Outside” the quote is “After all the only thing I wanna know is, can you look me in the eyes one last time without suffering?“
Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?
“Loveproof” is the exact summary of what our last album is.

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
Absolutely not. Don’t get me wrong, we love the classics and old music, but we believe that music is reaching an absolutely higher level both technically and harmonically nowadays. So if we can choose between just old music or old music and modern music the answer is simple.
We have just t-shirts and CDs on our merch table, the good old school way!
Variations you’d like to do of any of your songs?
Nothing so far, our process to create the songs involve a lot of work in different times, even months. This makes us sure to have the best song we could possibly have.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are really important to us, it’s always a pleasure to hang out before or after a gig with them or get in touch to listen to their feedback about our releases.
Xrays or any other treatments needed for band related injuries?
Nobody, fortunately, had any injuries during our career.
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Riccardo’s fault 100%, he is too slow to do everything.
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?
What about an Elephant? We always loved to be downtuned because of the bigger sound and, as New Noise Magazine said, every note is like fist to the jaw. Think about being hit by an Elephant, you are going to remember it for the rest of your life!
