Exclusive Interview with One Ok Rock on 18Nov13 : Who are you??Who are we?? Tour in Bangkok 2013

1 Day before One Ok Rock 1st Live Concert in Thailand, ITP is one of the Thai’s Music Magazine who can get Exclusive Interview with One Ok Rock . Even though the schedule is very tight but we try out best to bring the questions from the fans and ask directly to the band as much as we can.  One Ok Rock also gives us very friendly answers. However, let see which questions will be picked up this time;

Into The Pit (ITP) : Sawasdee krab (Greeting in Thai) One Ok Rock!! Could you please say some greeting to Th-Fans and also Into The Pit’s Readers?

Taka : Hi, I’m Taka. I just saw Into the Pit magazine for the first time and found OOR was on there too. I’m so surprised. Thank you so much!

Ryota : I’m Ryota. Nice to meet you!

Toru : I’m Toru.

Tomoya : I’m Tomoya. Thanks a lot for giving a space for OOR in your magazine.

ITP : First of all, actually J-Rock that we are pretty familiar with is a type of Rock from Japanese which it has a specific language and sound. So that’s why you choose to make the music in English? And well say most of people know that typically problem for Japanese people is their Japanese’s accent when speaking English but your band is quite different. Please tell us why Taka’s English is sound clearly pronunciations to understand. (Question by: Himawari Anzu)

Taka : I’ve been in oversea when I was young. (Tbh, I just know this fact.) So I can speak English a bit, or I can say that I can speak English more than ordinary Japanese people, though. Regarding the inspiration for making music, I got it from western music as well.

ITP : Do you think what kind of music genre of your band really is? Is it Alternative/Post-Hardcore? And from what you said before that your music got an inspiration from western band, so which band has motivated your music to be like this day?

Taka : I watched MTV when I was in secondary school, therefore it drove me to made a music like that. And if I have to say which band has inspired us, it’s really difficult to specific artist.

ITP : For this question, we’d like to ask Toru-san - why do you think that the role as a front man of the band has to be Taka only? Even though you got rejected by Taka many times but you still kept trying to persuade him to your band. (Question by: SCOPICO NOVEMBER)

Toru : You know a lot of our details.

ITP : I’m one of your fans as well.

All members : Khob-Khun-Krab (Thank you very much in Thai)

Toru : When we met for the first time, Taka was already in another band. And I just formed “One Ok Rock” but we didn’t have the vocalist at that time. Then, I found Taka singing at live performance and kinda feel like I want him to join our band because the role as vocalist is really important, so I kept (s)talking to persuade him until finally he joined the band.

ITP : Do you think to be 4 members forever or have you got any idea to become 5 members again in the future? (Question by: Pim Crazyrock)

Taka : No. We used to think about becoming 5 members but now we already quitted to think about it at all.

ITP : When did each members realize that you’d like to walk in the music industry way? Are there any moment of depression and feeling like the roads aren’t all roses?  And when you look back to those things, do you think that you have accomplished the goal which you set for? (Question by: IWAN KAPANG and HAJANEGI)

Taka : We started from Zero, so we have nothing to lose. We do all best we can do now, so we don’t want to quit from running our life into the music.

ITP : When you are creating new song where did you get the motivation and if each members can pick one song from your albums which song is the most suitable for each of you? (Question by Luis Liverpool and ZIWKUN)

Taka : Normally we will get the demo and then continuously proceed the song from that part. I think we never thought about how to find where the inspiration is coming from but we prefer thinking about which kind of melody will be suitable to the song and can demonstrate our own style. Speaking about comparing ourselves toward our songs, we never thought about that because we think that we still can make the music better than this, so we can’t compare ourselves to it now.


ITP : Please tell us what is your strong point which made OOR being famous and got a lot of fans over the world. (Question by : PETROKU)

Ryota : I think our strong point is when we are on the stage, we will put all of our strength into the show.

ITP : Speaking about “JinseiXBoku=” album which got a big successful after released the single “The Beginning” and being well known in many countries. So do you think this album can be called your masterpiece?

Taka : For the time being, this is the album which we’ve done our best, though. We used to think that this is our masterpiece but after we listened to it again and again, we started to think that we can make it even better.

ITP : Please tell us how do you choose the single for promoting and making PV. In my opinion, I think every songs from this album can make it to be PV.

Taka : To be honest, we would like to make Music Video for every songs but when we have to choose, we decided to select the song which we have a good memory more than other songs. Of course, it will be an advantage both to our image and emotion when making MV as well.

ITP : During this world tour, please tell us how do you feel when your concert’s tickets sold out in a few minutes in many countries ? I’m wondering whether you went there for promoting purposed or signed any contract at any label there before? Do you have any idea that’s why you got this popular?

Taka : I’d like to ask this question in return that’s why the ticket can be sold out? (laugh) We never though that the tickets can be sold out like this….we got a big surprise!!

ITP : Why did you choose Bangkok as at stop on the tour? Did you know before that you have fan-based here and will you come back to perform in BKK again?

Taka : I think that music market in Asia is quite big ones and there’re a lot of countries which we never been there before. Consequently, I have no idea how many fans are in Thailand as well. However, if we know wherever the fans are, we will try to go there. It’s been like this since we were in Japan.

ITP : Please tell us why it has to be RED Microphone? (Question by: Scorpio November)

Taka : I like Star Wars. Actually I really like Light saber (Lasor Sword). In the meantime, during the rehearsal in the studio, it’s also the red one, though. So I feel that if I use it on the stage, it can help me feeling more relaxing while performing.

ITP : Thank you so much for giving us this wonderful interviewing. Lastly, do you have something to say to your fans who will come to see the concert this time?

Taka : This is our first time meeting between One Ok Rock and our fans, and we are incredibly excited about it. We promise, we will do our best!!!




How could they get this video? This is a pro-shots video and the audio is very clear. I bet they recorded it from the mixer, not directly from camera microphones.
