1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?
We are playing music together since 2002. When we formed the band we wanted to make violent and tortured hardcore, play gigs and record songs. That’s what we’ve done.
2.How would you describe your musical sound?
Today our sound is powerful, noisy and aggressive.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Subjects explored are feelings of hate and rage. Human relationships and death.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Stuntman?
Risk of death and rumors of fall. We liked the metaphor and how the word sounds.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
The best shows that we have played together were and will always be when the audience and our friends share and enjoy what we're providing on stage. What we love is this communion. We can’t do a hierarchy.
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new release?
We will play in Montpellier (France) for the release party (18th January 2014). We will tour from the 1st to 15th of March in Europe and play some gigs on weekends until end of May.
7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of hardcore and grind?
We have a lot of satisfaction with the band. On tour we met a lot of people who became friends. Nevertheless thanks to the Web we're having very good feedbacks worldwide on our latest material. However we’re still very confidential.
8.Are there any other musical projects besides this band?
A lot, we're involved in other bands (Pal, Plebeian Grandstand, Feral, Reverend Knockers), owning a label Prototype Records and promoting a festival called the Yell Fest.
9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
It’s difficult to answer but we will continue to do our best in the same direction!! No compromise.
10.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
A lot of bands influenced our music but we can say that metal hardcore bands from the 90’s are the most important spring of inspiration. Nowadays we still listen to these bands but also more modern ones like Nails, Ulcerate or Deathspell Omega for example. We listen to almost everything but our tastes remain kind of elitist.
11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Each one of us is interested in different things. Family, friends, food, politics, philosophy, art, technology…life!
12.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
Incorporate The Excess is the first record that makes us entirely happy in terms of production and sound but STUNTMAN is still a band you must experiment on stage.
THANK YOU very much.
