Define 71TONMAN in one tweet (140 characters)
71TONMAN is 5 people spreading their ‘fat, low and slow’ plague all over the world. Sludge is their business and business is doom!
Whats is the current status of the band from a musical standpoint and why the audiene should give a chance to listening to 71TonMan
We’re working on split release which hopefully will see the day light before the summer holidays so you’ll get a chance to listen to new 71TONMAN’s stomps pretty soon. We are also working on cassette version of our self-titled debut. It’s going to be limited run of 30 copies with a different version of cover art and a very unique cases so keep your eyes open if you want to get one. These bad boys will be available in the second part of March. We also book shows to support our debut. We’re going to play in Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, the Czech Republic and our area in March and April. We really love to play live so we’re very excited to visit all these new places. It’s going to be awesome. Why should you give us a chance ? Listen to the album and dare to experience the heaviness of 71TONMAN. Words are overrated so just come and see for yourself.
How important are the lyrics, tell us the lyrical concept behind the music
The album tells the story of the post-apocalyptic world or rather its dystopic vision. Titular 71TONMAN is just a character from a comic book we’ve projected. He opposes Dr. Psycho, super-villain who tries to rule the remains of the Earth. Basically, the whole story is the classic case of battle of good against evil where the latter symbolises numerous flaws and vices deeply embedded in human psyche.
What are the bands’ aspirations. Where would you like to be in the next couple of years
Bands’ aspiration is to have fun, tour, party and wreak havoc ! So far we really enjoy what we do and we can’t wait to see all these places which wait for us out there. We don’t really think about what the future will bring as long as it’s good fun ! One thing I know for sure is that we will record our second full-length in the year of 15. You have been forewarned !
