Our A-Z challenge is a fun way of getting to know the many bands and artists in the alternative world. Here its the turn of guitarist/vocalist Fella to tell us all about Dreamshade!
A song that made you want to make music?
Eiffel 65 – Too Much Of Heaven
Best rider you have had?
I gotta say, riders in Switzerland are always pretty dope!
Craziest moment in the band?
We played a huge festival in Nanjing, China. It started raining horizontally like I’ve never seen before. Huge storm. The stage was flooded and some of the stage lights caught fire. We never stopped playing and people never left. Craziest and one of the best shows of my life.
Deepest lyric one of your songs features?
“I might be blind but my heart can see” – Another Me, Another you (Album: Vibrant)
Easiest song you wrote?
Up All Night
Favourite song in your set?
Question Everything – soooo fun to play live
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
Eminem, Billie Eilish or Jacob Banks. I feel like I could do great things with any of those artists 🙂
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Dealing with everything that isn’t making music.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
Our drummer Francesco never played metal before joining Dreamshade 👀
Jokes you have in the band?
Everyday is Luca’s birthday when we’re touring so we get him cake!

Opening for this band would be ideal?
Place you’d most like to tour?

Quote that you’d like to pass on to our readers?
“If you don’t fight for something, you’ll die for nothing”
Reason for the title of your forthcoming release?
We are super fans of Carl Sagan‘s work. Also “A Pale Blue Dot” happened to be the perfect title to represent what we had in mind.
See us live at?
Hopefully at a cool festival when they’re happening again
The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
Some things were better but others, like productions, are more accessible now.
Last year we started selling compact mirrors for ladies!
Variations you’d like to do on one of your songs?
I’d like to redo the mix on the whole Vibrant album.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. They are the reason we keep doing this. We know they love our music as much as we do.
X-rays or any treatments needed for band injuries?
Luckily none so far!
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Probably it’s my fault, also our drummer Francesco is pretty slow at getting ready 😉
