Triggerfinger considers himself at festivals like the underdog
Triggerfinger running for many years, but in the festivalcircuit considers the Belgian band themselves still as the underdog.
Bassist Long Polle find that no problem at all, on the contrary: “Fine, because to win something is nice. It often happens that we are the group that is after us is nervous to be in the wings.”
Drummer Mario Goossens admits in interview with the magazine Humo what his colleague says.
“You hear during the soundcheck, the noise from the stage to the left of you, and you know that the audience before that happened. And yet, that the ideal conditions for a show of Triggerfinger. Because we come, and we are not louder, not faster, not louder, not rougher – but more intense.”
According to singer Ruben Block is the position of the underdog, strengthened by the way in which festivalorganisaties the band in the line up position.
“You can’t be a uniform label on our slices, and that means that we are often programmed to be in places where we are the outsider. A few years ago we played in one summer at Rock Werchter and at Blues Peer, and twice we were the odd duck in the bite. I find it very cool that we that all the two can do, and that in both places klópt.”
