Akash The Band

As they are planning to come ehre in India next i m going to introduce one of the best rock band from pakistan is the interview of them.they discussed each and everything abt thier band ,music and the album called enjoy and .......KEEP ROCKING

Sam: Vocals/Lead Guitars/Song Writing/Composing & Production

Miki: Keyboards & Rhythms

Fiz: Bass

Kenny : Drums & Percussions

How did all the members become part of the band?

Sam: I have been into music for the last six years. I have done a lot of sessions with many artists and most of them were from purely Eastern classical background. After playing two years of professional music I started my own band ‘Akash’ with Miki who is my childhood friend. Then for two long years Miki and I just practiced and worked on compositions and continued our professional music careers. A couple of years ago Kenny became part of the band. He was my neighbour and wanted to join us. Fiz joined us in Jan 2006 as bassist. And now it’s been two successful years since ‘Akash’ is working as a fulltime mainstream band and we are ready with our debut album.

Given the diverse musical preferences of the band members how did you begin to work together as a team?

Sam: Miki and I both have classical influences in our music, while Fiz and Kenny were more into hard rock/metal type music. Coming from different backgrounds has actually helped us create a unique sound, plus we have very good chemistry between us. ‘Akash`s’ team is very understanding and open to ideas, so its never been a problem working as a team where everyone has their space to experiment with ideas. Our music has a lot of soul, with a rock feel to it. It’s hard for us to define our music genre because we make hard rock, alternative rock, etc., but I would not hesitate in defining our genre as soul rock.

FiZ: It’s not hard at all; the kind of music we are creating is not bound to one particular genre. Even though it’s rock music, we have room for every band member like technical drum beats, strong rhythm , groovy bass lines and of course the hypnotic melodies and guitar solos, so we all really enjoy working as a team.

Who does what usually --- production/writing lyrics/compositions, etc?

Sam: I handle all production related matters. For our debut album I have written most of the lyrics, and Sami Khan from ‘Lagan’ has helped me with a couple of song lyrics in the album. ‘Akash’ has more than forty compositions in stock that we have been working on for last couple of years. We have used these in our album.

What was the concept behind the band and name ‘Akash’?

Sam: ’Akash’ means sky in Urdu, that is the highest peak and we want to achieve that peak. Our music is all about the feel and soul and most of our compositions are of a darker mood. As we know the colour for sadness or loneliness is Blue and also for the sky, the name ‘Akash’ kind of depicts our feelings for music.

How would you describe your songs?

Sam: Most of them are based on Soul/Rock. My compositions revolve around the darker side of things, though the album has a few happy tunes in it too. I can describe ‘Akash’s’ songs as songs of the masses, because we have tried our best to translate peoples’ emotions through our music in our style, so everyone can relate to them. We have focused and worked really hard on our melodies, with simple easy to remember lyrics, and we hope this altogether will have long lasting effects on our listeners and even after years when someone will listens to our songs, they would still sound fresh and young to them.

What can we expect from the debut album?

Sam: Well you can expect a lot because we have used and fused many live instruments with rock music. It’s a mature production and we have worked very hard to make it sound better. FiZ: All our dreams depend on our debut album and like all other artists we hope and wish ‘InshaAllah’ that it is going be the biggest hit in the history of Pakistani rock music, but at the end of the day it depends on our listeners --- how they accept us.

How long do you think you’ve carried on with that concept in mind while making music?

Sam: The name of our debut album is AKS because this album reflects all four of us coming from different backgrounds of music. As such there wasn’t any concept behind this album, we just wanted to make sure that our songs never sound monotonous. We experimented a lot with different genres; hard rock, semi-classical, punk rock, pop rock and other flavours, and have used a lot of live instruments in our album like violin, arabian tabla, sitar, tan pura, flute and harmoniam. We are quite satisfied with the outcome and quite close to the sound we wanted to create. Now we are looking forward to positive feedback.

What kind of problems has the band faced as an upcoming underground act trying to break into the mainstream?

Sam: We have worked very hard to come onto the mainstream. The main problem was finance and we don’t have proper event management companies here who can arrange proper gigs or concerts. Plus the sound systems we have are not that professional, and we have to depend on the support of different TV channels.

Miki: There is a famous saying that ‘there is no shortcut to success’, we too faced many problems. It’s really hard to make high budget videos, which is very important to get noticed in the mainstream. We were lucky that we have our own studio to record our own music, otherwise this would’ve been another problem.

What makes ‘Akash’ different from all the tons of local bands out there?

Sam: I think ‘Akash’ is the most down to earth band and I will not say that we are doing very different music, but I will say that we have the guts to experiment a lot with different instrumental arrangements. Our album is a commercial album for the masses, but not just another commercial album.

Given the vast experience performing live, what are some of the issues you think the event management companies need to focus on?

Sam: Event management companies need to realise that artists need to be respected. Respect is one important issue, and with that as mentioned earlier good sound arrangements are important. They should also realise that the only source of income for an artist is concerts and organisers don’t tend to pay artists well or market their events properly. Whereas artists suffer a lot, event management teams are always make a profit from different sponsors.

Miki: First and foremost is the quality of the sound equipment. Then the artist must be paid because the music they are doing is the only way for them to earn.

FiZ: The events should be properly organised, and artists should get paid properly and on time.Kenny: They should be organised in every aspect related to concert and yeah, they should respect the artists.

When can we expect the new album?

Sam: Soon!

First Single “Rise Today” Hits Radio On July 30th

July 23, 2007 - New York, NY Universal Republic recording artists Alter Bridge have announced the name of their forthcoming second album will be Blackbird.

Clocking in at almost eight minutes, the title track is clearly one of the masterpieces of the new album. "We felt like Blackbird was the perfect song to use as the title track for this record,” lead singer/guitarist Myles Kennedy commented.

“Though a majority of the album is not as dark thematically, we really hoped to draw attention to what we felt was one of the most challenging yet gratifying songs we’ve ever written. It was inspired by a friend of mine who passed away as the song was completed; it’s a story about the struggle to move on to a better place. It was my wish for him to finally find his peace."

There are many differences between One Day Remains and the band’s new album Blackbird with the most notable being the full integration of Myles Kennedy as a guitarist and songwriter. While One Day Remains was largely written before Myles came on board, this time around, it was a collaborative effort with Mark and Myles sharing the songwriting duties, while all four band members worked on the arrangements.

“It’s a natural evolution after three years of working together,” Mark Tremonti stated. “We knew Myles was an amazing singer, that’s why we hired him. What we found out when we toured the first record was that he’s also an incredibly gifted guitar player and songwriter, as well as a vocalist. It would have been a crime not to utilize all that talent. We wanted to use every weapon we had in our arsenal for this album.”

Blackbird will be the follow up to Alter Bridge’s debut album, the Gold-certified One Day Remains, which peaked at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart its week of release. That release featured three consecutive hits on rock radio: (“Open Your Eyes,” “Find The Real,” and “Broken Wings”). The first single from Blackbird “Rise Today” has already gotten substantial early airplay before the official add date of July 30th.

Comprised of Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips, Brian Marshall and Myles Kennedy, three of the four members of Alter Bridge made up the 30+ million selling band Creed. The band will be hitting the road upon the release of Blackbird this fall. Touring details will be released at a later date.

LINKIN PARK - story behind the name

Do u know the real story behind the name "LINKIN PARK"?....i think most of us do...but for the people who dont know, i am posting this....plz read........ In 1996, rapper Mike Shinoda and guitarist Brad Delson graduated from Agoura High School in the Los Angeles suburb of Agoura Hills, California. Upon graduation, they formed a side band with their friend, drummer Rob Bourdon, under the moniker "SuperXero". Previously, Delson and Bourdon were in a band together for about a year called Relative Degree. Delson had also been part of a band called The Pri cks The three members of SuperXero played archaic forms of their music together while at college. Delson attended the University of California, Los Angeles. Shinoda went to the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. While at UCLA, Delson met bassist Dave Farrell. Delson and Farrell were roommates and often practiced and played together. Previously, Farrell used to play in a band called Tasty Snax with Mark Fiore, who later changed their name to "The Snax". Fiore later became Linkin Park's cinematographer. While at the Art Center College of Design, Shinoda met Joe Hahn. Farrell and Hahn later joined SuperXero, and the name was shortened to "Xero". The five men were later joined by lead vocalist Mark Wakefield and, together, they recorded their first, self-titled demo tape. The tape was sent out to various record labels but it was never considered and the band was never signed. Shortly thereafter, Wakefield left the band and became a manager for Taproot. Wakefield left, Shinoda began auditioning for a new vocalist and at the same time Delson began interning for a Warner Bros. Records A&R representative named Jeff Blue as part of his communications degree. Blue alerted Delson and Shinoda to Chester Bennington, a young vocalist from Phoenix, Arizona who was looking to join another band, after being the vocalist for Grey Daze (formerly known as Sean Dowdell and His Friends) from 1993 to 1997. Shinoda and Delson sent Bennington a tape containing instrumentation for a song and he recorded vocals for it. He then called Shinoda and played the song over the phone. This was the start of things to come as the band was instantly impressed by the vocal abilities of Bennington and it did not take long to realize the advantages of his voice and his ability to mould it to be both soft and thought-provoking as well as hard and attention-grabbing. Once Bennington had joined the group, they attempted to have the band signed. Unfortunately, the name was already taken by a 70s and 80s band from Australia so they changed their name to Hybrid Theory and the band's line-up solidified — almost. Farrell temporarily left the band due to previous commitments with The Snax/Tasty Snax and, as such, wasn't able to record bass for their first, self-titled EP. Instead, Delson and a bassist named Kyle Christner played bass. Released in mid-1999, only one thousand copies of Hybrid Theory EP were pressed. Several copies were sent to various record labels, including Warner Bros. Records. The rest of the copies were given to early members of the band's newly formed street team. Farrell was temporarily replaced by Scott Koziol. Scott appears in the video for "One Step Closer" from the Hybrid Theory album. The band was subsequently signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1999 thanks to Blue. However, they were forced to change their name again due to a trademark issue with a British electronic group called Hybrid.[citation needed] There were several suggestions for the bands new name, including Clear, Probing Lagers, Ten P.M. Stocker (an inside joke for the band since they were always recording and practicing material late at night). When the band was creating Hybrid Theory they used to park their cars outside and there was a time limit, 1 am, until which they could park. As Bennington said, "We've probably spent more money on parking tickets than Warner Bros. makes annually!"Bennington eventually suggested the use of the name "Lincoln Park" because he would drive by it in Santa Monica, California (now known as Christine Reed Park). He drove past the park on his way to the recording studio every day when the band was recording demos for its debut album. Bennington thought that since there are Lincoln Parks all over the country, the band would be recognized as a local band no matter where they went. He also liked the name because it had no meaning, allowing the music to describe itself. The group bore the name Lincoln Park for a few months, but when they decided to register a domain name, they found that "" was already taken. Because the band couldn't afford to purchase it, they simply changed the spelling from "Lincoln" to "Linkin" and purchased the domain name "".
