Where are you from?
Name of band:
Dead Star Renegade.
Who else is in your band?
Jimmy Van Zeno (Vocals)
TIm Dobie (Bass)
Vik Kundra (Guitar)
Jay Pizzey (Drums)
How would you describe yourselves?
We are a hard rock band who are taking rock and roll by the throat and smacking it right into the here and now!
Who are your main influences musically?
All things rock and roll! But if we REALLY had to pick a few, then there are definitely flavours of Alice In Chains, Black Sabbath, Skid Row, Motley Crue and Ozzy Osbourne.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
We want to continue to make the best music we can, and keep getting out there to get heard by as many people as possible.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Releasing our debut album and receiving such a positive set of reviews globally. We really think it's a world class recording of some great hard rock songs.
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Not too much, but our singer Jimmy Van Zeno can be a bit crazy on stage at times - one time in the middle of a gig he blew up all of the effects on Vik's pedal board by chucking water all over the place!
If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Blackwing. It shows all the different things that fuse together to make the Dead Star Renegade sound.
Where can we listen to it?
Where can we find out more about your music?
