Damn Freaks – featuring Tygers Of Pan Tang singer

First single and music video from the band with Tygers Of Pan Tang singer Jack Meile in front.

Jack Meile talks about the collaboration:
“‘Break The Chains’ was one of the first song I listened to form the album and it reminded me of the early ’80 US metal. I was, and still am, a huge fan of Dokken and Van Halen and I was definitely inspired by that when doing the vocals for this track”. I like songs based on a strong riff”– adds Marco, the guitar player – “songs like ‘Ain’t Talking About Love’… it’s pure energy, it’s like a steaming train rolling at full speed on the trails… for me that’s what  a hard rock song should be all about!”.

A musician has a constant need of writing songs; and songs like to choose their authors carefully. That’s exactly what happened with the 9 songs in DAMN FREAKS debut album. Rising from the ashes of a previous band called FOOLS’ MOON, drummer and producer Matteo Panichi had started working on some ideas guitarist Marco Torri had sent him. “Good ol’ party time rock’n’roll” that’s the record the pair wanted to record. And who better than their long time friend Iacopo “Jack” Meille – singer from Tygers Of Pan Tang – could help them writing the most catchy choruses you could ever dreamed to hear in 2017?

““We all wanted to capture the vibe that we loved way back in the ’80 when we were listening all day to White Lion, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Dokken and David Lee Roth”” – reckons Iacopo – ““It seems like people have completely forgot that music can also be the soundtrack of your happiest and laid back moments!””

Songs such as ‘Dream Highway’ or the powerful ‘Break The Chains’ need to be listened at maximum volume when driving in your car while stuck in everyday traffic, to make you feel the positive vibe of R’n’R.

“We all wanted to write songs that could stand next to our favourite songs of the ’80” – it’s Marco speaking – “’Poison Apple’ next to ‘Knucklebones’ from David Lee Roth or ‘Burning Up’ next to Van Halen’s ‘Panama’ and now you can do it by building your own compilation on Spotify and have a blast!””

The 9 tracks of their debut album were recorded in their home town Florence in Tuscany and mixed by Harry Hess from Harem Scarem fame.

Matteo has high confidence in the project: ““In a way we consider ourselves the freaks of the third millennium, as we still want to try to have a good time and music is the perfect and 100% legal drug” – “ so Yeah, we are freaks, we are DAMN FREAKS and we will help you having a good time!””
