With influences varying from NiN, New Order, Alter Bridge and the Foo Fighters, Waiting for Titor produce an eclectic sound. The band release their debut EP Halo, pt 1 on 2nd June. We had a talk with the guys and found out more about their history…..


What is the full band line-up, who plays what?

Alex Palladini – Vocals and Synths, Mike Tomasini – Guitars, Max Andrini – Bass and Synths, Vince Picciolo – Drums.



How and when did the band form? Tell us anything interesting about your hometown.

The band was formed in 2013 from the ashes of a crossover band called Convergence. Alex and Max decided to move on and start a new project focused on their favourite musical style. So, Mike and Vince, who good lifetime friends with Max joined the band shortly after. Alex lives in Manchester and he is heavily influenced by British music, lifestyle and Manchester’s indie vibe. Mike, Max and Vince live in Faenza, a city located in the north of Italy in an area famous for music, cars and food. Our producer and label are Belgian and based in the flemish city of Gent. In summary, we are a very international and European band.



When and how did the band really start gelling and solidifying?

After we released our first single in 2013, a reworking of Massive Attack song “Teardrop” and after some positive feedback about our demos we started to work on quite a few songs: after two years of work we had enough material for a full length album but it was still rough. Working together created a good workflow and feeling between the band members and it is during the last year (2016) that everything really came together very nicely.



What are your musical influences?

All of us have a rock background and, although we have all different influences, we have a common passion of alternative and energetic music. Alex and Max are massive fans of bands like Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails and Massive Attack, Vince loves stuff like Nirvana and Foo Fighters and MIke, also a NIN fan, likes heavy stuff like Alter Bridge.



Where did the name of band come from?

The band name is inspired by John Titor, the name used on several bulletin boards during 2000 and 2001 by a poster claiming to be a time traveller from 2036, and by the play “Waiting for Godot” where the two main characters wait for a guy called Godot who never arrives. We came across this story of John Titor by watching one of those conspiracy theory programs on TV and we liked the idea of mixing the two together: we are waiting for the man of the future who never arrives because he lives both in the past and in the future. The future is today!



In your opinion, how is your band different from all the other bands out there?

We can’t say our music in unique (whose is these days?) but we are very confident it is capable of interesting a wide and heterogeneous audience. We make music for passion and because we truly believe in it and I think people can feel that in our live shows. We are authentic and professional and we always deliver a high quality show.
