Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Underball is new band formed in 2015. The story is really short: five roman outcast started to build up the saddest band of all time. We quickly came out with a few songs. All the band members are from Rome and we all play in different band: 
John Von Lovers - Singer (Cockroaches)
Pekkia - Guitar (The Fourth Sin)
Zorro - Guitar (Southern Drinkstruction - Chronic Hangover)
Motoreddu - Bass (Le Mura - Jesus Was Homeless)
El Charlo - (Fingernails - Chronic Hangover)

How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music? 
Actually all the band’s members came from different rock/metal scene. What we trying to do is to mix all the sounds of music that we like: thrash metal, rock n roll, blues, hardcore, hard rock, stoner, doom; we call our music Hairy Sweaty Shameful Porno Thrash…yes. Which bands Influenced us? Mmh, that could be a long long list.

Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
‘Couse we really need money for booze.
But our music seems pretty good so you’ll may be satisfied.

What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media? 
Actually we’ve just released our first Ep “Underball” and the audience seems to like it. 

Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Live shows are the most important thing for us. We really like to play and give to the audience the best performance. But don’t stay to close to John Von Lovers…

What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Kick ass songs, an irreverent attitude and the worst lyrics on earth.  If they want to make money well…they have to deal with us! 

What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Unfortunately we had a really bad news…our drummer El Charlo is going to leave us ‘couse he want to change sex..you’ll find him (her) soon at the red light neighbourhood in Montpellier (Fr). (Goodluck my friend!!). But soon we will present our new drummer. We are making new songs and we hope to join the recording studio as soon as possible.

Everybody can listen our first Ep “Underball” on Soundclouds.
