>> Tripleee is interviewing Heideroosjes
Expected soon: The Imadodattaz
The first question is an obvious one: In a short notice
your new full album will be presented to the world… what
can we expect from the new album?
might expect the loudest and fastest Heideroosjes album
ever. 16 songs in 39 minutes. We made 7 albums now and this
one turned out to be real powerful. A mixture between hardcore
and punkrock. The energy we have on stage is finally caught
on the album. The lyrics are angry, pissed and full of frustration
about the world in general and humanity in special.
Your tourbus has been stolen! (If you see the Heideroosjes
tour bus: call 003177 3988164 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org)
Of course it affected your state of mind but did it also
affected your studio work?
really, it took us some expensive studio-hours to look for
our bus. And it even made me (marco) more pissed about our
sick world. I used this anger to made good song. Turn negative
energy into something positive!
Not only Henny Vrienten (Doe Maar) co-operated on the new
album, also Fred Emmer (for not Dutch people: Fred Emmer
is euh, oh well, Fred Emmer ;-) ) gave some input… Why Fred?
We couldn't find another anchor-tv-man who was willing to
contribute in a song about sexual abuse of little children.
The lyrics are quite heavy. Besides that; Fred Emmer is
After 10 years of HR punk, Heideroosjes is still growing…
What do you guys expect from the year 2001?
After the release of FAST FORWARD (21th
May) we tour Holland and Belgium. In summer we go the
USA and in the Autumn we'll do a massive European Tour.
Hopefully again with another cool band (a tour like we
did with Pennywise last year).
>> Is it possible that
with your contract-deal by Epitaph, HR goes America?
Actually we will but it's only for a few shows. Our record
isn't released in the USA. That's not a problem. We want
to 'conquer' Europe first. Heideroosjes are growing in Europe,
we get a lot of new friends every tour. When we reach a
certain point in Europe, we want to work seriously for USA.
But for now, Europe is cool.
Which new bands do you like at the moment?
There are so many cool bands we like. Not really
new ones but also 'older' bands like Dropkick Murphy's,
The Hives, the new US Bombs record, The Get Up Kids, but
also new young bands like Beans (NL), Donots (D) and many
What are the things you all get very angry about?
the way people treat each other these days. There's
no respect. We're all too busy with ourselfs. Our cars,
houses, jobs, etcetera. Society is more individualistic
than ever. Kids don't play in the streets, they sit on their
asses with Playstation. I think that's not a good way, but
we'll see within a few decades...
Finally, what do you wanna say to the Tripleee.net reader?
fast and positive, see you around and peace!
