Interview: Fred Hendrix (TERRA NOVA)

Hier ist das Interview mit Fred Hendrix von TERRA NOVA:

Hi Fred , I am Michael from www.melodic-rock-inside.com. Thank you for having time to answer some questions.

Hallo Michael, danke für das Interview!

1. Could you tell us please what are you currently up to?

I currently writing / recording / mixing and producing the new album of Esther known as one as of singers of "Two Of A Kind". The album is complete  mainstream Pop orientated with the inevatable rock influences.

2. Next month the new TERRA NOVA Album will release. Could you take us through the excellent new album “Come alive“ and some of the ideas/stories behind the songs please...

The main theme throughout the album in songs like "Come Alive", "Fighting Yourself", "Do Or Die",
"Who Can You Count On" and "My Own Way" is to stand up for oneself. Don't wait for things to happen cause nothing comes from nothing,  make it happen yourself. It's a dog eat dog world, so better bite before you get bitten! The rest are love songs except "Those Eyes" which is bout my three kids.

3. Where does the band get their song writing ideas from and who musically is an influence on you all?

The lyric ldeas come from dayly life it self. We all have quite similar taste when it comes to music so that makes writing and arranging quite easy. We are influenced byl types of music, Rock but also Pop and even Country. Bands that we like are: Journey, Van Halen, Styx, Saga, Rainbow to name a few from the old days and, 3 Door Down, Nickel Back, Googoodolls etc.

4. Which song(s) are you most proud of & why?

I'm proud of the entire album so it's hard to pick a song but I guess  "Fighting Yourself" jumps out a little which is probably the admosphere it's breathing.

5. What were the highlights of TERRA NOVA in the past? Looking back if you could change anything what would it be and why?

I guess that would be the album "Break Away" and it's tour because I have great memomies of it. I don't think changing anything would have made any difference of how it all went including the unfortunate break up of the band caused by our dutch record label. The only thing I regret is not having recorded the first album then years earlier because I am sure Terra Nova would been much more known than it is today. 

6. Are there any plans for live dates and how easy/hard is it to get a decent run of tour dates?
Tours are so damn hard to organize these days because you can't ask for much money anymore these days. But we can't go on tour and make no money because we are all profecional musicians who need to pay there mortgage etc. like everybody else in this world. We will do a CD presentation probably in September and by then we know what the sales will look like and make plans for a small tour through Europe and hopefully Japan.

7. How do you view the internet and downloads? How has the internet helped get your music out there?

The only positive thing about internet downloads is that people who normally wouldn't have bought our music now download it but is mostly for free. I sincerely hope that those people at least come to watch our life shows!

8. What really gets on your nerves and really annoys you at the moment?

I don't follow the news much our read papers just avoid getting anoyed of anyhing which makes life a little less complicated.

9. What do you like doing with your spare time outside of music?
When I'm not working on any of my projects I play with my kids who are very young, my oldest son is four years, my second son is two and a half, and my doughter who is six weeks old. Besides playing with my kids I like to whatch movies like "Avatar" or series like "Fringe".

10. Message to your fans...
I really hope you will enjoy our last album. We made a big efford to please our oldest fans but also the new generation of rockers. I hope we see eachother towards the end of the year.

Stay healty and enjoy life.

Thank you and I hope to see you at tour. I wish you much success with the new TERRA NOVA album “Come alive “.
