HI! HOW ARE YOU? WHERE ARE YOU? Great, we are in Columbus Ohio getting ready to headline Blitz Bash. „APOLOGIZE FOR NOTHING“ IS OUT AND VERY IMPRESSIVE. ARE YOU CONTENT WITH EVERYTHING? HOW ARE YOUR FEELINGS NOW AFTER WORK IS DONE? Yes, ready for the world to hear this album. FIRST I WAS QUITE SURPRISED TO SEE TWO RELEASES OF YOURS HITTING THE SHELVES IN GERMANY THESE DAYS. ARE YOU AWARE OF THE PRIMITIVE EPIC-RERELEASE? Yes, that was our first global release. AS YOU ARE A QUITE UNKOWN BAND IN THE GERMAN METAL SCENE COULD YOU PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO OUR READERS?! AND WHAT DOES THE BAND NAME MEAN (TO YOU)? My name is Marty McCoy, I play guitar and share lead vocals. The name BobaFlex is a tribute to the greatest bounty hunter of all time, Bobafett. REGARDING POINT PLEASANT: HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE MOTHMAN OR ANY OTHER PARANORMAL EVENT? 🙂 Of course, the Mothman gave the entire band special powers. YOU WEBPAGE IS CALLED „BOBAFLEXWARRIORS“ AND YOUR COVERS DO HAVE AN AGRESSIVE EDGE, TOO. DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF SOMEHOW AN ARMY WITH A POLITICAL STATEMENT? THE LEADERS OF A NEW MOVEMENT? Our fans are definitly an army, but there is no political motivation. I HAVE READ SOME INTERESTING REVIEWS OF YOURS. COULD YOU PLEASE COMMENT ON THESE STATEMENTS: – „YOU ARE VERY NICE TO EACH OTHER ON STAGE…“ (YOU LIKE TO PROVOKE?) We love what we are doing and it shows on stage. – „YOU HAVE BEEN A LOUSY KORN CLONE AT HIGH SCHOOL“ I love Korn, but I don’t believe we sound anything like them. – „YOU CHANGED YOUR STYLE TO THE VERY BEST AND ARE NOW VERY HARD TO DEFINE“ Cool THE COVER IS VERY INTERESTING AND A LITTLE BIT MORBID. WHICH IS THE MESSAGE? SHOULD YOU BE KILLED TO PROTECT AMERICAN SOCIETY? 🙂 A lot of people should be killed to protect American society. We are definitly 5 of those people. WHICH LYRICAL CONCEPT STANDS BEHIND “APOLOGIZE FOR NOTHING”? IS IT TO BE SEEN LIKE A „LIVE HARD – LIVE FAST – DO WHAT YOU WANT“ STATEMENT? Exactly, a lot of bands write about relationships and the hardships of life. We don’t care about any of that. COULD YOU TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT THE SONGWRITING PROCESS? HOW DO YOU DEVELOP SONGS AND HOW DO YOU SHARE RESPONSIBILILTIES WITHIN THE BAND? Everybody in the band writes music and lyrics. It is very natural, each member is an individual and its important to us that it comes through in the song writing process. REGARDING THE TRACKS ON „AFN“ IT SEEMS TO ME AS IF YOU HAVE BECOME MORE AND MORE OPEN MINDED TO DIFFERENT STYLES. IS THIS A NATURAL PROCESS OR SOMETHING YOU DID ON PURPOSE? It’s natural for us to write music with a lot of different styles. Each band member is into several different kinds of music. AM I RIGHT TO SAY THAT YOU – IN SOME PARTS – ARE INFLUENCED BY SYSTEM OF DOWN BUT PUT A MORE DOWN TO EARTH AND AGGRESSIVE EDGE TO IT? Of course, SOAD is a huge influence on us, I think they are changing the face of music. YOU MADE A VIDEO FOR “BETTER THAN ME”. HOW IS THE RESPONSE ON AMERICAN TV? CAN YOU LIVE OFF YOUR MUSIC ANYWAY? We haven’t done the real video for „Better Than Me“ yet, the one you have seen is only for the internet. We haven’t really been on American TV yet, but we can definitly live off our music. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE CURRENT METALCORE SCENE? TOO MANY BANDS? TOO MANY COPYCATS? ANY INTERESTING NEW INFLUENCES OR UNDERGROUND BANDS WHICH HAVE TO BE DISCOVERED? I really don’t know what metalcore is. YOU HAVE PLAYED THE GIGANTOUR. WHAT IMPRESSIONS WILL STAY IN YOUR MIND OF THIS HUGE EVENT. ANY INTERESTING/ STRANGE TOUR STORY? Just getting to hang out with all these artist that I grew up listening to. Hanging out with Dave Mustaine was probably the most memorable thing.As for strange stories someone threw his dentures on stage and wanted me to put them in my mouth. I didn’t do it but I did kiss them and throw them in the crowd. WHEN WILL WE SEE YOU LIVE IN GERMANY AND WHAT CAN WE EXPECT? Soon, the craziest live show you’ve ever seen. WHOM WOULD YOU LIKE TO TOUR WITH IF YOU’D HAD THE FREE CHOICE? I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE YOU AS SUPPORT OF SYSTEM OF A DOWN… Skindred but System of a Down would be nice. HOW ARE THE BOBAFLEX WARRIORS IN PRIVATE LIFE. WHICH PASSIONS DO THEY (OR DON’T) SHARE? BOOKS MOVIES SPORTS HOBBIES… Drugs alcohol and sex just like everyone else. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT BUSH AND HIS HANDLING OF THE HURRICAN CATASTROPHE? IS THIS HIS POLITICAL DOWNFALL? I don’t think Bush can handle anything, he set up his on downfall long ago. THE LAST WORDS BELONG TO YOU, ANYTHING YOU HAVE TO TELL YOUR GERMAN FANS? We are coming for you, so you better lock the women and children up. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR SHARING YOUR TIME AND GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR STRONG EFFORT. Thank you very much! Marty McCoy…..BOBAFLEX
