Hi! Give a brief history of Bad Bullet, music style, and the members.
Hi! And a big greeting to the readers of Sick And Destroy!
The band was founded in 2013 by Steven (drummer) Manuel (rythmguitar + vocals) and Gernot (leadguitar). We knew euch other for 7 years. We all played at the same soccer club in our city….. that’s how the story gets started ☺
Michael joined the band through Gernot. They knew each other through their work.
The first steps were really hard. None of us had ever played in a band, so at first we had to learn what was really important…… to play together, to play in time and to get a little bit of “groove”. The problem at that time was that we did not have a bassist. It took us until the end of 2017 to found a bass player. (Rock is less popular in our homeland, more pop, techno and softer music) With Michael (Bass player) everything got better.
In 2018 we played our first gigs ever and it was great. We got good feedbacks and invitations for bigger events.
Our music style is a mix between Nirvana, Nickelback and Foo Fighters.
Give in more detail, some information about “Use The Energy” and how well it sells?
The sells are ok ☺. We are newcomers, no one knows us, so the big coup still takes time.
Bad Bullet has signed with NRT-Records, tell more about that?
We have negotiated with several labels about a contract and then decided on NRT Records, because the label boss treated us not only as goods, but also as friends and that was very important to us. We signed in February 2018.
What is the difference between your latest and the very first records?
Our music is becoming more dynamic and interesting because everyone gets more out of themselves.
What inspires Bad Bullet music and lyric writing? What does Bad Bullet lyrics talk about?
The lyrics is the job of Gernot.
The main themes are the things that happens to him in life and sometimes he uses storys to write a song.
The lyrics talk about fighting for your dreams, that you should enjoy your life, that you should never give up….. or crazy stuff like killing your boss ….. we all know this thought – right?
Do you play live often? Do you like abroad gigs?
2018 was difficult because of work and time. We played this year 15 gigs. 2019 should be much better. Abroad gigs? We did not have the chance yet but if we get them, we will use them.
How often does the band practice and work on new material?
We practise eight to ten times a month.
We are constantly working on new material – Dropbox and Cubase make it possible.
How did the band come up with the name Bad Bullet and tell what does it means for you?
The name comes from an alcoholic Dring from our favorite bar. – perfect.
The name has no deeper meaning.
What does the band plan on doing in near time?
We are planning to make a video to a new single, to find a better sound and we are planning to play more often in 2019.
