Happy new year folks! Wish you all the best for 2016, especially tons of great new records, shows, new bands…whatever! So far this year has been pretty tough for me but, honestly, it has also been one of the most important years of my 28 years of existence on this planet. I’d like to thank all my friends and family for their support, all the DROIDxRAGE crew for being cooler than cool, and all the people I’ve met working on this website: Swedes – don’t forget /!\ FREE LINUS /!\, Gabriel, Leo, Joel, Emelie, Filil, Tor, Klas; UK – Paolo, Connor, Tom, MERCY, Ben, Jérémie, Sam, Rodney, Luke; Americans, Balaram Shakti Das (AKA Gjared), Lucas, Jean-Pierre, Connor; Canada: Karl; Brazil: Athos; Belgium: Jens; Bulgaria: Nikolay; Australia: the Fitzsimmons twin brothers; Germany: Adrian; France: Alexis and Alexis(!)

I guess you already purchased JUDGE “Bringin’ It Down” and TURNING POINT “1988-1991” reissues. If so, please check this online demo (and download it for 1£) I discovered like a week ago. REFLECT hails from Manchester and their 4 songs demo is just great, in the vein of the two bands I was previously dealing with, I mean angry and melancholic straight edge tracks. Paolo (vocals) agreed to answer to a few question for DROIDxRAGE. Enjoy!
A while ago I contacted Stephen about doing something together for DR to maybe talk about his band Peace or his part in Clear. But he told me to hold out as there was something new cooking with the TFS guys …..I pretty much lost my head and was like errr ok. Im a huge TFS fan so when UOF dropped I was beyond stoked especially as I knew something sweet was on the horizon. Man they have not disappointed me I can’t stop listening to the demo and they are having a great response to their music world wide I’m really stoked for them. Heres the interview I did with Stephen St. Germain and Aaron .
