“It has obviously been a crazy, terrible thing for everyone, and for us as a band it has been really frustrating not being able to play shows” – says Martin Lopez – “but also it has given us a clear window of opportunity to realise this album completely. We were able to spend 12 hours a day for many months bringing IMPERIAL to the place we truly wanted, mainly working on the groove and flow of the album.”
“In my life I try to be as real as possible, but I think that the music, and nature, of SOEN are the only place that I really, really feel I can be myself,” – explains Martin Lopez – “When you’re home, doing music, writing lyrics, that is where you really get to express yourself without any judgement and with total freedom…”
