Q). Since our last interview in 2016, the band has had a series of successes – what’s it been like for the band to gain industry recognition in the last few years?
Answer: FABIO LA ROCCA (founding member, lead guitar and main songwriter) shared, “It is nice that we have been receiving continued recognition from the music industry as well, from our fellow artists and our fans, especially the last few years. We have been working really hard at giving our greatest performances and thrilling our fans! Being selected and aired on various radio stations globally is a gratifying feeling, knowing that we are doing what we set out to accomplish, sharing our music with the masses. Our live interview on Ontario College Trent Radio for instance during our 2017 headlining position in the Peterborough L.I.V.E Music Festival held at the Historic Legendary Red Dog, and our 1 hour visit live on air on the worldwide online metal station, Dr John’s Surgery Radio, with our friend and dearly departed radio personality Phoenix Camerah, aka Candy Burns, back in 2019 which was awesome! The station’s all aged massive listenership got to hear our music allowing us to give them a sense of who we are, how our band originated and what processes we have gone thru with different members of the band and our varied influences. Reaching a global audience has also broadened our social media realm including the addition of more hits to our website, Facebook.”
Answer: KEVIN BRAZOLOT (Bassist/backup vocalist & Demolition Rage’s PR) mentioned, “One of the most unique opportunities came forward for us in October of 2016, being asked to perform a special educative up close and all aged musical performance at the Brampton Library South Fletcher Branch, as part of the city’s annual Culture Days, which lead to much success, Brampton library won 3rd place in all Ontario for Culture Days. Community, Collaboration and Caring are Surita Dey’s main philosophies as a Community Engagement Coordinator at the branch & with her enthusiasm and imagination in partnering with the School Boards, grass root agencies, and the City of Brampton has helped the branch win the title of Youth Friendly Community for two consecutive years. Surita reached out to us at Demolition Rage as she was looking for a local act that inspires youth to become leaders of tomorrow and had us interact and engage the library full of all aged partons on Oct 2nd, 2016.” Post-event Surita Dey sent us this awe-inspiring email stating, “Hello. All, together we earned success. Thank you Demolition Rage for joining the Library for Culture Days and helping our City of Brampton win the third spot in Ontario for Culture Days events!! It was a pleasure.“ KEVIN BRAZOLOT further states, “it goes to show that Demolition Rage’s hard work is paying off and we are reaching a wider all aged global fan base.”
Q). Demolition Rage is keeping busy writing and prepping to record their 3rd master peice release, what can your fans expect from your third album?

Answer: KEVIN BRAZOLOT stated, “that being said, with the new approach, DR will still keep its unique signature that has made them who they are today. With our experiences, we hope to indulge our listeners with new tasty flavors to our sound.”
