We took some time to chat with Polish band, Snakedoctors today. Read on to find out more.

You’ve had some huge successes with airplay and interest in your home country. Tell us about your success in Poland

It actually started with radio stations abroad first. Here it’s very difficult with indie rock. But somehow our songs would get picked first by local stations and rock-oriented shows and then our songs reached also main and mainstream stations. We appreciate a lot all those who play and listen to our music.

You work with a lot of guest artists and producers. How do you choose who you’d like to work with?

Personwise we basically try to work with those we like and appreciate. Generally, once we get the idea we just reach out and ask. My previous US music experience helps sometimes. But contrary to common belief often it’s our heroes who simply answer and try to fit us in their schedules.

Who would be your dream collaboration?
Alice in Chains.

If you could go open for any artist who would it be?
Alice in chains and Bush tour.

Tell us about your forthcoming album. What can the fans expect?
It’s interesting how in reviews we read that each next of our albums is better than the previous one. In the case of the new one – we do believe so. We grew up musically and this time – still having fun recording – we really got into that a lot. It feels like a nice piece of work. The album is more on that heavier Snakedoctors’ side but still very melodic. There are really interesting collabs in it this time – starting from artists, finishing with engineers and producers. We will keep the names for release time but the first single “Destroyed” already revealed Nik Hughes from Bush on drums, Marshall Gallagher (a leader of Teenage Wrist) doing mixing and Howie Weinberg Mastering involvement. And there is more. We will have also vocal collabs – with Christine (as heard in “Too Many”) returning.

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?
A lot to talk about. You can’t really change it. Streaming changed the music world. Also the industry. With a lot of good and bad things about it. In the past, people actually had to buy music to listen to it. Things were different. And then what we have around… There’s room for all kinds of music. We love rock. More of it around more good time for us. We’re in music because we love it, we are friends and it’s fun. Regardless of everything out there.

You have some diverse influences to your music. Please tell us more about who gives you inspiration.
That would be music we grew up with, played or listen to. Definitely grunge and that harder type of rock to start with (Alice in chains, Stone temple pilots, Bush and many more), melodic metal (Megadeth, Metallica), new wave (Joy Division, Sisters of Mercy), early Depeche Mode and many more.

What’s your ideal gig?
Festival type of show with grunge, rock and new wave bands we like.

What do you talk about when you’re together but not playing?
We are friends and we hang out a lot together – basically go out for a band night once a week, throw parties and more. We share a lot of friends, too. We have a lot of fun spending time together. And music is just one of many things we talk about.

Thanks for chatting with us today, we wish you continued success.
