Blitz Union Chats Much on Music, Including Upcoming Album!

Mixer uppers BLITZ UNION combine EDM and rock together, to make a combo so raw in sound it's a distortion left for the unknown.... Since their forming they have an EP out, and an array of single's with an upcoming album as well. Nothing but work upon that album is what's on the table for now, and the band chats much about it and all else too!

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

I think it is not the right time to reveal the whole story/whole truth. I am not ready yet and not sure if everyone else would be able to handle it too. But what I can tell is that me, Mark Blitz was the one who put the band together, who recruited Shodushi, GØvernor and Schtorm. And it wasn’t like “I want to start a band”, but due to the unusual events, circumstances which happened to me it was more like “I must start a band”. We are already working on a suitable form, how to present the whole story, what happened to me, what made me start Blitz Union. So if you’ll be checking Blitz Union socials regularly, you'll slowly get the answers. 

 2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The second part of the name ‘Union’ speaks for itself. Besides doing music— we are trying to create an experience, a movement and a natural union. A group of like-minded people who care about the whole, who care about life in general and do not focus exclusively on their personal profit. The first part of the name 'Blitz' - I am sorry, but the origin of 'Blitz' is directly connected to the whole story which, as mentioned in my first answer, I am not ready to share yet...

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Blitz Union is based in Prague, Czech Republic. Prague is a city of great history & culture and so the music scene is quite wide and various here. From rock- scene I would point out bands like John Wolfhooker or Hentai Corporation and from pop/alternative scene a band called MYDY.

4. How would you describe your style?

We call it EDM-rock. We try to combine electronic and dance music elements with the raw rock sound. So you can hear a dance kick drum, disco buildups together with a distorted riffing guitar in the very same song.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We released 5 songs EP “Revolution” in 2019 and since this September we are regularly releasing first singles from our upcoming album. The latest single 'Money-Crazy World' was released yesterday.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes that's right, we are constantly working on new songs so that we can release our debut full length album in spring 2021.  

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Unfortunately, due to the Covid situation all planned shows, tours have been cancelled and since nobody knows how long these restrictions will last, the promoters do not want to promise any alternative dates. Which makes total sense. But this summer season was very fruitful for us. We were on an open-air tour throughout the Czech Republic alongside the local popular band Škwor as guests. Each show had an awesome, unique atmosphere and we successfully recruited a lot of new followers of our Union there.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Our current priority is to finish the album, videos and also to work on a suitable form of presentation of our story and the standards of our Union. This part must not be underestimated and needs its necessary time.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Our music is available on all standard music platforms such as YouTube, Spotify, Apple music etc. If someone would like to support our Union directly, they can take a look at our e-shop, where we have available for example our first EP on classic vinyl.  

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Well, if in any sense the listener remembers our music, positive or negative, the main thing is that he has memorized it in some way. We are more interested in the subsequent feedback, which helps us to understand how our music affects certain types of people.
