Recent Reviews & Updates:

If Interrogation hasn't become the "next big thing" to hit the upcoming generation of the goth-industrial faction, it is only a matter of under-exposure. One could surely draw parallels to Nine Inch Nails, Ministry and the like, but such references fall just short of the fresh energy this group brings to their sound. Frontman and initiator, James Olyen, has grouped himself with the prowess of like-minded artists, Yveline and Twig, to create a powerhouse of Catharsis; and fortunately for us, the audience, they appear to be losing no steam. Tracks most likely to stick in your head include “Greed” and “Quite the Same.”

-Gothic Beauty Magazine

At about 2:00 in the afternoon the main/back room came alive with the first band of the day. Originally hailing from the suburbs of the Washington DC area, Interrogation relocated to the New Haven, CT area after completion of their debut release “Queen of Thorns.” Interrogation brought the developing crowd alive with some in your face hard hitting gothic laced with industrial rock that had intensity and cleverness. This band had a very powerful and tight performance. Frontman James Oylen’s vocals cut through the potent material and reached out to grab your soul. Everything was well structured and performed but I really enjoyed the outstanding performance of the band’s guitarist Yveline; her stage presence and musicianship was top notch and she really got into her work and making the crowd take notice of the band’s combined efforts. A great show for sure!

We also would like to send out a huuuge thank you to the professional and awesome crew from Poughkeepsie Live, where we performed on television last Thursday. You guys really did a great job with everything; impeccable lighting, sound, camera work, (and we all know James especially loved the fog). Okay, I liked the fog too.
Hopefully we will have video uploaded within the next couple weeks. Check back!

And don't forget DC/MD/VA! Get dressed up and come out this week:

Blacksun Festival II - Memories

It was one hell of a good time.
First, a big fucking thank you to Jonathan, Renee, Seth, and the rest of the crew/staff/stage management team for putting together the event. You rock harder than we probably ever will.
Second, thanks to all the other bands, DJs, & performers, and to everyone who came out and enjoyed our set. We all enjoyed ourselves, and were thrilled to get to play you our new single "Bad Gravity" live for the first time.

We've all taken so many good memories home with us. (Like walking through a crowd of Baptists on the New Haven Green wearing a 2" strip of patent for a shirt.)

We hope to have more images, video clips, and stories to share soon.
Till then,

No Emergenza.

Due to constant venue changes (with no notice), and now a date change (also with no prior notice), Interrogation will NOT be performing at the Emergenza Semi-Finals in May, or at any events affiliated with Emergenza in the future.

Please understand how hard we tried to make this work. We'll make sure every one of you is refunded for your tickets.
