This week we interviewed the hard rock band, Diry Thieves. Check their profile HERE

Please introduce yourselves.
We are Dirty Thieves, a hard rock band from Tampere / Lempäälä. We been around since 2013 and released one Ep called Beyond Story. Now our second EP is coming out with the next single released in this Friday 9.9.2016. Its called Scapegoat! Our band consists of four guys, Rodi Coloma / Vocalist, Henri Flame / Guitarist, Joonas Saarinen / Bassist and Kristian Eriksson / Drummer.

How did you end up making music together? The story goes to the year 2012 when the bands guitarist Henri and bassist Joonas decided to put back a band together. We had been playing together for a while before so we thought that its time to rock again. About a year from there, Rodi finally got lost to our rehearsal room and we captivated him and made him the singer (we were playing all that time only with guitar,bass and drums). When we had to whole set of guys we hit the stage pretty much the next day. And have been making gigs ever since. Our magnificent drummer “Krisse” jumped to the band in summer 2014 which made us to rock even harder, and faster and tighter!

How would you describe your musical style and how did it come about?
We all love rock music in its many different forms from Red Hot Chili Peppers to Bring me the Horizon through Guns N roses to Alice in Chains.  So its was no questions asked a rock band what we made out from this group.

Tell us little about your creative process?
The song making progress normally starts that I (guitarplayer) have some riff which we then start develop. Sometimes i have a ready song to bring to the rehearsal room, sometimes the song comes to life in band rehearsal. Our singer Rodi makes the lyrics and melodies for he songs.

What is the best thing about being in a band?
Gigs and free beer! :) Its about having good time out and hanging with our mates as well as making to band grow bit by bit. And all that mixed. Pretty much the whole thing.

The most memorable show you performed?
I have to say it would have been the HardRock Cafe in Helsinki or Myllyranta Rock. Its sticks to your memory when everything just “cliks” right. And the whole audience is with the band. Those nights are magic.

If you could choose, which artist would you like to see live? Dead or alive.
For me Guns N Roses, for the drummer probably something more hardcore like Bring me the Horizon or Beartooth, for the singer Alice In Chains, and basist Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Tell us about your regular hang out? Have you ever had a gig there?
We normally hangout in places others than bars (greetings to “surma” :) ) But there are few bars which we sit around and one of those would be Jack The Rooster in Tampere, which we have had many gigs. As well as the first one.

Future projects we should know about?
The soon coming out single release Scapegoat! We can’t wait! The music video was just filmed around Tampere and now its on editing table. Out 9.9.2016! So stay tuned!
