TOURS SECRETS LIES & THE SONG THAT SAVED THEM
We recently caught up with Forever, we are to talk about the new album : What are you. here’s how it all went down: R: So, long time no speak. FWA: Yeah, like two years right?. R: So whats been going on in the last two years. FWA: we went away for a while, wrote some new stuff, had a small tour across the UK and now were back promoting the new album. R: What’s all this about the band nearly splitting up then?. FWA: Well, things sorta kicked off when we were touring, we had a lot of issues, alot of arguments. It was just really messed up. R: right, so, what were the arguments about. FWA: All sorts really, we’ve been a band for...for about 8 years now, and we only really became sucess-
ful with our second album: This is who we are, and it was massive! we had people screaming our names everywhere, the tours got bigger and i think the music got better too..but it also became very stressful, things can get hard when your spending everyday with the same people, don’t get me wrong, were all best friends, but it’s still stressful.
IT WAS VERY STRESSFUL, WE NEEDED A BREAK R: So what happened? FWA: Well, we decided to finish the tour and take some time off from each other, we spent about 7 months
apart. and when we came back it was better than ever, we think this new album is out strongest yet. R: The new album is amazing but theres alot of change in it, it seems youv’e changed your style. FWA: Yeah, we hope its for the better, theres alot more accoustic tracks on this album, some orchestrial stuff, its different to anything else we’ve done so far,. we just wanted to mess things up a bit,create a new image. R: Whats the best track on the album then? FWA: Well, i think that the new single: Up all night, is the best track. It’s very personal, its’s a song we wrote when we got back together after the break. It’s deffinately one of the singles we’ve done, if not the best single we have, it’s great.
