BW&BK / Bravewords.com scribe Carl Begai recently caught up with Shadowside vocalist Dani Nolden to discuss the band's new album, Inner Monster Out. In the excerpt below Dani discusses the overall reaction to the new record:
"I think fan reaction to Inner Monster Out in comparision to (previous album) Dare to Dream is pretty much the same as our own reaction. I still like Dare To Dream a lot, don't get me wrong, but none of us in the band felt that we got where we wanted to get with Dare To Dream. Inner Monster Out, on the other hand, was exactly what we were chasing since the beginning of this band. Fans agree with us that this is definitely our best material up to date but I don't know if it has a little bit to do with the fact that we are extremely happy with it as well. I think it shows when you play and sing something you really love, people can tell it's a very spontaneous album."
"I always say that the secret for success is getting new fans without pissing off the old ones (laughs). But our old fanbase is really into Inner Monster Out and lots of people seem to be getting interested in Shadowside at the same time. Some of these people had never heard of us before but some didn't like or didn't care about us, but now they like what they hear and that to me says we are on the right track. I'm excited to see where this album will take us."
Watch for the complete story, coming soon.
