With Wacken XXX looming up to stomp its big metal footprint on Germany again this summer, we’re taking a look at a bunch of the bands who are hitting its iconic stages for the first time. Today’s act are full of rock, roll and big hair! They’re Sweden’s Crazy Lixx…
We are five dudes from Sweden!
Before you get sick of being asked… where does the band name come from?
UUUUUURGHHHH regurgitation!!!!! No that is fine. The name comes from what the singer thought was the name of a toy guitar he had as a kid. Turned out later that it was another name on the toy so we are stuck with a dumb name!
Describe your music. Who are your musical influences?
All 80ths!! Anything from Alice Cooper to Kiss to SKid row, anything with big hair and not so manly men!
Do you have any particular lyrical themes?
Depends on the songs. We have covered everything from religion to lovesongs to horror movies.
What’s your live show like? How many shows have you played?
The band Crazy Lixx has done more than 200 shows but we have only been the current lineup since 3 years. The good thing is that we bring a lot of energy to the stage and some really good looks! We try to make the audience feel a part of the show and we will do our best to make the Wacken crowd satisfied.
What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?
Well….nothing too wild I’m sorry to say…maybe you guys can change that?
What, if anything, are you plugging/promoting at the moment?
We are going to release our new album Forever Wild in May and after that tour as much as we can and then hopefully do it all again next year.
Other than Wacken, what are your plans for 2019?
We are doing our first shows ever in Japan and we are also doing some really cool festivals this summer with Wacken being one of the highlights for sure!
What are you most looking forward to at Wacken this year?
I have never been there but I have heard some great things about it… just the sheer size of it is gonna be really cool to experience!
