D.I.G Interview 22.07.20
MM: Can you tell us about your Band and whos your biggest influences
Ans:Hello Björn from D.I.G here. D.I.G is a power trio that plays mix of heavy modern and classic
rock. We been around for about 7 years now. My biggest influences when it comes to writing
music is King ́s X, Alter Bridge and Black Stone Cherry. But my influences are always evolving
since I am a huge music freak
MM: Where do you draw your inspirations and ideas from
Ans: Other music and bands. I like going to live shows cause that can be really inspiring! The last
show I saw before the corona shit went down was "Sons of apollo" that show rocked! I do take
my time writing music :p i ́m not a fast working songwriter haha.
MM: What would you say is your Bands favourite song ?
Ans:Our latest single "in the blink of an eye" is really fun to play and sing! but then i really like
playing "Think" and "The mountain". I ́m not so keen on playing stuff from our first album haha.
That album is cringe worthy for me! feels soooo old and we grown a huge amount since that
MM: Plans tour and festival wise for 2020
Ans:Well i think 2020 is pretty fucked but we hope 2021 can be the year when we hit the road again!
Untill then we will try to make as much music as possible.
MM: What can we expect from D.I.G live
Ans:A honest live show! I am so bored of bands playing to click tracks live and that whole thing! A
live show should be full of suprises as well! If you come and see D.I.G live there will be parts
that will suprise you, jam spots and more! sometimes if we are really pumped up some songs
might be slightly faster then on the album. It ́s very organic. Like it should be ;)
MM: What do you like best and worst abt touring
Ans:Best thing is meeting new people and bands AND you get to hang with your band buddies!
Worst thing is waiting :p waiting to get up on stage, waiting to unload and so on.
MM: Which three Bands would be your ultimate touring buddies
Ans:Fun question and difficult :) Right now I would bring King ́s X, Alter Bridge and Alice in Chains.
MM: What's the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own) and why
ANS:Stuck Mojo in germany! Me and two friends took a roadtrip to see stuck mojo play in rostock. It
was two days of party and fun! the show itself was magical! We managed to get the 50 people
other then us thats was there to really get going and we had so much fun.
MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far with D.I.G
Ans:Getting the chance to "start over", we changed drummer about a year ago and we dident know
how things should turn out. But it turned out great and we feel like we have more energy then
ever so I think thats is one of our biggest accomplishment, SURVIVING!
MM: Which are your Two favourite Albums of all time
Ans:oh......PASS!?! haha. I might say that "Images and words" by Dream Theater has been a huge
record for me and some record with swedish 80 ́s rocker Europe:p
MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have people
Ans:Yeah actually i do! It was in school and me and my friends did a show with a band we had! We
were all huge KISS fans so we did our own thing with home made pyrotechnics and more!
MM: Growing up which Bands posters did you have on your bedroom wall.
Ans:First muscial hero was Gene Simmons from KISS and then Yngwie Malmsteen.
MM - Who do you think influenced the world of Metal / Rock more than any other person
Ans:EDDIE VAN HALEN!!! If you look at things from a guitar players perspective I think Eddie is the
king. I took guitar into the modern era, and he was such an inventor as well. Amps, building his
own guitars. So from a sound perspective I say Eddie. But from a rockstar perspective it got to
be Ace Frehley from Kiss.
MM - What's the most important thing to the band right now?
Ans:Recording new music. Thats what we need to do. We plan to have a album out before the end
of the year.
MM:If you could do a cover of any song which one would it be and why?
Ans:Anthem with RUSH! such a cool song! only problem is the high Geddy Lee singing hahaha. But
that song has it all, energy, cool parts and more.
MM: Tell us why we should buy and listen to your Band
