Supernova Plasmajets Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and
release of the new ep?
Our latest EP has just been released and so far the feedback we got is quite good. There are more
offers to play shows than ever before. Since playing live is the best thing in the world for us we are
more than happy to take those opportunities and conquer the world.

2. Recently you have released a new ep, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented
on the recording?
The whole project is to mix up modern vocal lines with the heavy guitar and synth sounds of the 80s
and that’s basically what we were going for with the latest production.

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Nassi writes all lyrics for the band and the topics are mainly love, heartbreak and the troubles of
everyday life. We want to give people something they can relate to when they listen to our music.  

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Supernova Plasmajets'?
In the first place the project was just fun and games for us so we were brainstorming for something
ridiculously long. Also we wanted something related to space, science fiction and cartoons. So
'Supernova' as a symbol for power and creation was there right away and with the sci-fi theme the
word 'Plasma' came soon after. If you then remind yourself of the famous cartoon 'samurai pizza
cats' you are almost there naturally.

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe
your stage performance?
To us it’s all about connecting with the crowd. We will put on a show no matter what and send you
home with a smile on your face. That said, it’s really tough to pic the best one ever. I would count the
big ass stage of 'Schlossgraben Fest - Darmstadt' and the EP-release gig among the best ones. At the
moment we are particularly looking forward to opening for our buddies Eskimo Callboy. The show is
going to be fantastic and we are planning on plasmafying almost 2000 Eskimo Callboy fans on Dec,
4th in Frankfurt.

6. Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
The EP so far is getting us loads of gigs so we definitely working out tour plans for the EP. At the
moment there is a short tour of 6 dates here in Germany going on. All the dates that are already
fixed can be found on Facebook (hit like and you'll be notified) and future shows are planned
throughout Germany up to Italy but not jet verified.

7. Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?
In fact there are several labels that reacted to the EP release and the release of the video to 'Leave
Forever'. So currently we are evaluating the possibilities they give us. No decision made jet.

8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of sleaze rock and
Here in Germany it’s basically black or white for us. If people are in to this genre of music they love it
and are passionate about it. If they don't they are hard to come by at this point although having a hot
singer defiantly helps in winning people over.

9. When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into
musically during the future?
We are already working on new materiel while on tour so we can hit the scene with a new album late
2015. I don't think we will stray very far from what we are doing right now. The 80s vibe is what we
love so we'll stick to that for sure. A full length album obviously gives you more room for variety so
along with some up tempo songs I can see a ballad be put on there as well for example.

10. What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also
what are you listening to nowadays?
There is really a different answer to this question for every one of us. Nassi is a die heart HIM fan and
loves Placebo and Paramore, Markus and Mourice are more into the raw sounds of Turbonegro,
Boris bangs his head to modern heavy metal bands and Andi is basically a 80s rock / classic rock guy.
We all share the love for the 80s pop-metal sound. So bands like Reckless Love, H.e.a.t. and Steel
Panther are on our private playlists.

11. What are some of your non musical interests?
Those are quite different throughout the band members. Andi plays organized hockey, Boris is all
about tattoos, Nassi does paintings and Markus and Morice are creative in digital media or work as

12. Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
We are just thankful that you guys showed interest in the project and gave the opportunity for this
interview. Final words? May the world reign in Plasma!
