Interview w/ Elias Andra (JK/DBS), January/February 2010

The European leg of the Dead By Sunrise tour is almost here, so we teamed up with Julien-K Germany and LP Italy to bring you this interview with Elias. We hope you guys enjoy it!

Here's our part of the interview, read the other portion with 10 more questions and answers inside this thread!

11. What difference, if any, is there between Julien-K and Dead By Sunrise fans?
I think there is not much of a difference. I want to believe that a true fan would support both.

12. Can we expect a live CD, DVD or even both from Julien-K or Dead By Sunrise in the future?
Julien-K released a couple of live bootlegs on the internet from our tour with Evanescence in the fall of 2007. I believe we captured something incredible. You got to see what our production was then and what we could do live as an electronic rock band. Julien-K is truly a different animal live. As just with any band you have to see us live to understand and appreciate the emotions we present on stage. Fortunately Evanescence allowed us to bring our whole production with us. Plus our crew really kicked ass and if it wasn’t for them, I don’t think we could do what we do live. As far as releasing live content for either band, I think YouTube does that for us already in many ways – haha.

13. Which Julien-K or Dead By Sunrise track are you most proud of having worked on?
I’m very proud of all the drumming on Dead By Sunrise tracks. I put all my heart and soul into making the drums sing. Plus creating the drum beats for Out of Ashes was a band collaboration effort. I think that was the most fun part in which everyone helped out in making the songs better. Drumming-wise, “Into You” is technically the one I am most proud of.

14. Is there a chance that you play some Julien-K songs during the Dead By Sunrise shows on the upcoming European tour, or can we even expect other live treats such as more covers or acoustic songs?
No Julien-K songs other than “Morning After.” The best part about our set, as most people already know, is you will get to hear almost all of Out of Ashes in its entirety. Plus the bonus songs that did not make the CD will be the icing on the cake.
