Envy Of The State Download Festival 2011 Interview



Envy Of The State from Telford, UK Played Download on Friday the 10th of June 2011 on the Redbull Bedroom Jam Stage. Acts that performed that day included: The Darkness, Pendulum, Korn, Danzig and Thin Lizzy! I asked Bassist, Steve Tipton about their Download experience..

Firstly I’d like to say its so good to see you guys doing so well, as I have been a big fan of the band ever since I heard you and I instantly knew you were destined for success..and well look where you are now and where you have been!..Only one of the biggest music festivals of all time..Download!!


Playing such a massive and well known festival as Download is what bands dream about!.. Was playing Download the highlight of your career so far?  Playing Download was amazing a great goal to acheive we loved it!!
Did you think you set went down well? The crowd were killer!!!! Well up for it , and very loyal, we love our fans!


How nervous were you prior to your Download performance? We don't normally get the jitters before a show but Download was a bit different. We didn't get too nervous but Donnington Park has alot of history.
You guys seem to go from strength to strength..What other goals do you hope to achieve?..Perhaps playing Main stage next year or in the future?! Were just in the process of signing a Management Deal at the moment, so that will help with things in the future..And have loads in the pipe line for the year to come ..Yeah I'd like too say we would work our way up to the main stage next year.

Did any of you see anything strange or funny at the festival? The whole festival is strange and funny!...Especially when getting free beer from the VIP bar!

What other bands did you see on the day? And who were you most looking forward to seeing? Saw Blackstone Cherry,Mr Big,Linkin Park,Skunk Anansie,Rob Zombie,Alice Cooper, alot more But my heads just getting over the mayhem that was DOWNLOAD FEST 2011!

Voi and Luger told us: “This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our 'older age' we have done something serious. Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
