Description

Electric Callboy are a band like no other.
By blending modern trap with alt rock, pop punk and many other genres, the German entertainment machine transcend musical barriers in a way that allows them to appeal to a broad spectrum of music lovers.
The band will make their first visit to Australia this weekend as part of the Good Things Festival, which starts in Melbourne on December 2 before hitting Sydney on December 3 and Brisbane on December 4.
Celebrated for the energetic live performances, Electric Callboy are champing at the bit to give Australian crowds their first taste of the band, with vocalist/keyboard player Kevin Ratajczak sitting down with HEAVY to prepare us for their run of shows.
"We've been around for more than ten years now," he began, "and we've travelled to so many countries but we've never been to Australia and it has always been on our bucket list. From the stories we know about Australia the people are nice and laid back and relaxed totally matches our lifestyle so we can't wait. We've already got many messages on social media and everyone is very excited. This makes us even more excited so let's go!"
Electric Callboy are no strangers to playing the festival circuit, having appeared on most of the worlds biggest concert events, so we press Kevin as to whether the thought of playing a new festival still excites the band.
"Absolutely," he stressed. "Festivals are always a different situation. You can play your own headlining shows or support shows but festivals are so many people coming together that are not coming out for you in particular, so I love to be in other countries and having people in front of the stage that haven't heard about us before. Or they have heard of us and just wanted to check out those crazy guys from the internet (laughs). Either way I love festivals, and to be in Australia... come on. Leaving the cold Germany in winter and arriving in Australia in summer at the beach... there is nothing better."
In the full interview, Kevin talks more about what to expect from an Electric Callboy show, who he is most looking forward to sharing a stage with, their blending of styles and how it works, the band's universal appeal and the benefits of that, keeping the flow of a set list with so many moving musical parts, their latest album TEKKNO and how it was received, the early days of Electric Callboy and where they fit in, side shows in Australia and more.
