Emerging energetic heavy alt-rockers Outta Peak are set to stake their claim as one of the new breed of bands to break through in 2017. The ascending foursome are set to release their new video for Anything, which is lifted from the band’s acclaimed current album, Loveproof, out now. We sat down with the band to have a chat…..
What is the full band line-up, who plays what? We are a four piece band. We have Federico Telesca as main vocalist and lead guitarist, Axl Hill as backing vocalist and rhythm guitarist, Riccardo Cenci as the bassist and Jonny Hall as drummer.
How and when did the band form? The band started between school desks in 2009 in Italy, we were just four friends that enjoyed staying together and playing some of our favourites tunes. Then we started composing our own stuff and we started to play in every little bar, venue, festival (etc, you name it).
When and how did the band really start gelling and solidifying? At the end of 2014 two of the band members left the band due to moving to the UK so we rearranged half of the band and started all over again with this new line-up, ready to do everything in a better way. So we released three singles, we did our first tours (UK Tour in October 2015, East European Tour in June 2016) and we released our second full length “Loveproof”.
After a summer full of gigs, performing live and writing, we moved here in UK to walk this path, away from friends and families, but to a place where the music is not only played but you can breathe it in the air, because this beautiful country is full of venues, bands, and festivals without genre boundaries.
What are your musical influences? We have a lot of musical influences but we all love bands like Pierce The Veil, Architects, Northlane, Brand New and stuff like this (expect the newer album a heavier one).
Do you have a tour on the horizon? We moved here in UK in September and we have built a lot of contacts, we are going to tour a lot the next year, we can’t say anything at the moment but when everything will be confirmed we’ll just update everyone through our Facebook page, so stay tuned there!
Where can we find your social media sites? We are on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, that’s all you have to know!
