We sat down for a special video interview with frontman Olli Herman from the Finnish sleaze rocker band Reckless Love on the eve of the band’s debut of Turborider.
Given that the band has only made brief stops in the United States, I asked Olli to give listeners an overview of the history of the band and their influences. He explained the evolution of the band as they now approach the release of their fifth album, and also gave us the story behind the inspiration for a synth wave-infused rock album. Check it out here! And be sure to follow our YouTube channel as well. Lots more videos coming soon!
Want more Reckless Love, check out our coverage from the Hair Metal Heaven festival we mentioned in the interview.
Other new interviews include Chip Z’ Nuff (Enuff Z’ Nuff) and Adrian Vandenberg (Vandenberg), as well as interviews with Chris Caffery (Spirits of Fire, Savatage, Trans Siberian Orchestra), Herman Li (Dragonforce), and Roy Cathey (Cold Sweat, The Fifth).
