Envy Interview
This interview was made in Le Mans the 26th of June 2005.
Phil has Met Tetsu the singer.

Can you tell us about the origin of the band?
I was with a few friends form school, not really thinking about anything and we just said: 'lets do some music', and that's how we started.

What is the significance of your lyrics?
Everyday life, we all work so whatever we get from our work, television and just everyday life in general.

Could you talk to us about the Japanese hardcore scene?
There are a lot of hardcore bands in Japan and they are very split doing their own thing like Envy. There's no hardcore festival like this but they are all working very hard.

Do you have any hardcore music websites in Japan?
Well because the scene is so split-up there isn't one site which is really good. We don't really look on the internet though, so we don't know.

What do you think about the French hardcore kids and the fans?
Well we haven't played yet so we don't know what kind of reaction we're going to get. But we have never seen so many hardcore fans ever...so we are really blown away by this!

Can you describe your music and your songs for the people who don't know them?
Its not metal, it is a good mixture of very intense music and very quiet music. There is a contrast.

Are you playing other festivals?
Last year in England we did the All Tomorrows Party festival.

How many albums have you released?
Three albums, two mini albums.

When is the release of your next album?
We will start recording this year in October so hopefully early next year we'll have a new album out.

Are you going to be playing anything from your new album today?
We'll be playing one song yes.

Any last words?
If you ever get a chance to listen to the album try it out and listen to it!
