Interview with Mike Hohnen
With their debut album Persona Non Grata fresh from the press, the Music Feeds team caught up with hard rockers Strangers as they smash on with their tour, which included a stop-off at BIGSOUND.
Having locked in residencies at both Melbourne’s iconic Cherry Bar and Sydney’s Lansdowne, off the back of the release, bandmates Ben and Mark seem deservingly proud of the album, though Ben was a lot more vocal on the topic. Based around the idea of ‘treat me like I’m dead’, the band drew inspiration from their own personal experience, being treated like ‘unwelcome’ guests in their own town.
The first single, and namesake for the album, is currently at radio, and comes with a video clip.
