You have shared the stage with the likes of Liam Gallagher, Queens of The Stone Age, Two Door Cinema Club and The Vaccines- how have these places influenced your sound?
BELAKO- We had our sound pretty much defined already but supporting this bands gave us the chance to share it with very different kinds of audience, so it gave us the perfect time and place to play 🙂 Also watching these huge shows was definitely the motivation a band needs to continue its growth.
Tell us about the new album ‘Render Me Numb, Trivial Violence’?
BELAKO- This album is a whole trip through our eclectical styles, and as its title says, it talks about different violent situations we do nothing about but observe and pass.
