You’re coming back to Singapore! What was it like playing in Singapore 1st time around?
Well, it was very brief sadly. We didn’t really see much of the town but looking forward to coming back this time and spending a little bit more time there. It was one of the most beautiful concert halls I’ve played in, no doubt I really saw that but it was a flying visit. But on this occasion I might come a couple of days early on my own. The band will join me the day before the gig. I’m also coming back to do a concert called Music Matters on the 26th of May, so I’ll probably spend a few days there then as well. I’m doing a talk and a workshop.

Once upon a time, popular music trends would be cyclical but it has been a long while since rock ‘n’ roll was considered trendy. Will Starcrawler be the young rock band that makes the difference?
Indian rock band Yesterdrive cite the influences of The Cure, The Ramones and The Band of Horses as being critical to their music, which is right up our alley.
