Exclusive interview with Voodoo Healers (Punk Rock’n’Roll from Greece). The interview will be available as well on our next number, coming out soon in .pdf for free.
MirceONE (MPTYZINE): Hi guys, this is Mirceone from MptyZine, it’s been awhile since we talk last time. How are the things?
VH: Hello Mirceone and many thanx for the contact and your interest to put out infos and news about the band through this interview.We are doing good in general keeping ourselves busy and active as much as possible with tours, recordings etc.
I remember first time when i did listen to you was in 2006 with Living In A Dogville, years have passed and i see that you are still going strong, congrats!
We try…we really try hard to keep it alive in total 15 years from 2003 the band established till today and hopefully few more years.
Saw some new tours for the band in Europe, how are things so far?
The world was always the target, not staying in our city or country, Rock n Roll is the idea and the cause and its bigger than anything else thats why we are touring as much as we can all around Europe, would be great if we could move even further but its very difficult. We had good times bad times….any kind of times…living on the road from 2007 till now. Doing this for such a long period and constantly is tough, the price you pay is high, you don’t choose life after all life choosing you, you just let it take you by the hand.
Any new stuff for 2018?
On March 2018 we re-released our first album „Living In A Dogville” this time in vinyl, its a new fresh recording of the original material plus a bonus track.
Planning a new recording of totally new material till the end of the year and having the album released in the fist half of 2019.
For those that don’t know you please tell us a few things about Voodoo Healers.
We are a Rock n Roll band, fast loud and sweaty, we started on 2003 and we stay loyal as we can in the idea that makes us started, we dont want to change we would love to be better on what we do not change it.
We dont like terms and headlines no fashionable, academic, veritable but not real, correct in the way fits to us and more issues.
Tell me about your music and message
Everything is clear from our side in a world that likes the blurry mixed up situations, Rock n Roll is the answer.
In a personal or social level here is few lines from us for us and to the world.
„I SHOULD HAVE BEEN A LISTENER BUT I RAISE MY VOICE
EVERY FUCKING SINGLE DAY
I SHOULD HAVE TURN AWAY BUT I STICK TO A CHOICE
EVEN WHEN THERE IS NOTHING LEFT
SOMETHING IS REALLY GOING AND SURE I’M AGAINST IT
TIGHT LACES AND READY TO KICK
A MODERN EMPTY WORLD WITH SOME LUXURY TOYS
I DONT WANT TO LIVE IN”
If you have to do a band top 10, what bands will be in it?
That’s tough but we ll try…in not particular order…are 12…
-Johnny Thunders And………..
Few words about Greek scene and interesting facts maybe?
Some maybe say that the Rock scene in Greece is general is really ok, of course its matter of opinion and how a person see Rock n Roll, we believe we have the scene we should have….bad or good dosen’t matter too much, in every place cultural or subcultural activities are moving based to the local standards.
One chance to make an split EP with a favorite band, what band will be?
If we are talking for bands are still active it would be The Damned or T.S.O.L…..better to stop with these two.
Any plans for the near future? where can people see you live? where also you can be found online for people to listen to your music?
Besides the recording of the new material till the end of the year hopefully we ll be on tour during March and April 2019, we can’t announce any schedule at the moment but for those who likes to see us they can follow the band on internet and get all the news.

I know that Romania gave you a good impression? Someday soon you will come back?
We are coming every year in Romania and i m sure it will happen on 2019, stay tuned!!!!
A tough one: Clash or Ramones? Why?
We could write books for both of the bands but since i must give a certain reply….
Ramones, they ReDefine Rock n roll after a period that things were kinda blurry and they stood for that for a lifetime.
Guys thank you so much for this short online time, i know you are busy, anything for our few online readers to add?
We thank you for the chance, we hope to get some feedback from any of your readers during the time. Take care
