Only a Dream can kill a Dream...
Art, Music and Battleship Oceana
Thank you for being part of our zine. Tell us more about your beginnings in the industry!
Everything started around 1998, when Andreas V (guitar) and Vagelis Lekos( bass), who spent their summer vacations together every year, decided to start a band that would play covers from their favorite bands. Soon after, the desire to write their own music became stronger, so they decided to focus on writing their first songs, which are actually the songs of our first album, “Only A Dream, Can Kill A Dream…”
When did you all decide to jump into this music career?
A lot of lineup changes occurred from the foundation of the band in 1998 till today, so for each member, the decision to jump into this music career, was from the day they decided to join the band.
Where are you located now and where are you all originally from?
We are located in Athens, Greece and all of us are from this city.
Goals for 2019 and beyond?
At the moment, we are trying to book some dates as the opening act of a famous band’s European tour and of course, a small headline tour in our home country Greece. We intend to complete all gigs regarding the promotion of this album till the mid of 2020 and afterwards start writing the songs of our next album.
What have been the specific challenges in your career so far? What have been the greatest achievements so far?
The biggest challenge is to keep existing as a band and keep moving on through all these years, despite the numerous difficulties that occur and the changes in our everyday lives. Our greatest achievements so far are, our first European tour, back in 2015 and our new album, “Battleship Oceania”, a really hard to accomplish album, that we are very proud of.
