INTERVIEW WITH WORLDWIDE PANIC (HEAVY METAL/HARD ROCK, 14-9-18)



1. How would you describe your music? 

Francis Cassol – to be honest, it’s not an easy task to describe Worldwide Panic’s music, because it sounds unique. But if we would put a label on it, I think it could be described as heavy metal mixed with hard rock with elements of Nu Metal and Industrial Metal.


2. What gave you the idea for the EP/LP title?


- Lane “Well the EP title has not been announced just yet.  But if you want an exclusive it will be called “The You In Me”.

Right now were are promoting, “Party” our new single and video and our tour with Flaw and Smile Empty Soul”.

3. Do you all work together on the writing process?

-Lane  “It depends.  Most of the time I construct the structure of the song and my guitarist come to my place and add harmonies and leads.”
 

4. How much time to do you take record songs?

-Lane “It is not like we have a timer running.  I mean every song is different.  There are some that just flow and there are some that have endless rewrites and then they are some that get scrapped entirely.  We put love into all of our final products and nothing I or we do is rushed”.
 

5. Does this release differ to past EP/LPS?

-Lane “Well this is our first foray as a band.  We really put everything we had into this song and video for our latest single, Party and we hope you enjoy.”
 

6. Do you like to change it up for each release with lyrical themes?

- Lane “This song in particular deals with addiction and hopefully sheds some light on a taboo subject”.
 

7. Where do you draw your influences and inspirations from?

-Lane “Real life. We don’t dwell in fantasy all our songs are about things we have experienced in life”.
 

8. What has been the most enjoyable thing you have done as a musician/singer?
 

FC – There are many, but personally I would say recording in Germany with producer Charlie Bauerfeind, in the Blind Guardian studio, playing on Dani Löeble’s (from Helloween) drum kit. Number two would probably be playing with Paul DiAnno (former Iron Maiden) at the Motorcycle Rock Cruise.
 

9. What do you feel is biggest challenge going forward with your career?

FC – The hardest thing, in my opinion, is building a solid fan base. You can put out the best album ever, do the coolest videos and photos, but without a fan base, it’s all worthless. Once you work yourself up, by keeping your mistakes to a minimum and working hard by touring and recording, things can start happening.
