Time for Fahrenheit to spill the beans. WZ is scared of losing his family! Aaron can’t stand cockroaches!!
About the album
Epop: It has been some time since Fahrenheit came out, which programme do you all feel let you all grow up the most?
Fahrenheit: It would be the two mini concerts in HongKong and Guangzhou; we sang eight songs and even invited Tank and Liu Li Yang (the one who sang TiAMo with Aaron) as special guests. The company and we discussed that it will be a warm-up for out concerts, we will work hard.
Epop: Were you all anxious then?
Fahrenheit: More of excited. What we were really anxious was when we were the special guest for S.H.E’s concert, and everyone who attended was their fans, so the pressure was huge. Luckily we have S.H.E as our seniors, if not we will not have the chance to see such a huge scene. And I feel that they are really strong, they have been in the line for seven or eight years but they are still leading as the top female band, and no one can go near them at all.
Epop: Then will you guys go near them?
Fahrenheit: They are seniors so we are not afraid, they treat us very good off stage and we often play together. S.H.E had once been a newcomer, so they know what newcomers need the most is their seniors’ help. And they will also teach us a lot of things, they are very lively off stage too, but once they shoot MV or go on screen they become even lively.
Epop: Why the huge time difference before the release of the second album?[/size]
Fahrenheit: Because many of the songs were recorded repeatedly and some were completely re-recorded.
Epop: Which song was re-recorded?
Fahrenheit: “Wei Ni Can Zia”, we changed another producer because after hearing we feel that some parts were not really good and we were getting unsure of our voice, so we requested to re-record it.
Epop: Can you guys say more about the parts you are in charge of?
Fahrenheit: WZ is in charge of low voice, he can support the richness of the whole band. Jiro’s voice is special and can be recognized immediately. No matter high or low notes Calvin’s voice can let people feel refreshed. Aaron is in charge of the high parts. And we are most proud of ‘Bu Hui Ai’ cause of the harmonization.
Epop: Is there any difference between ‘2FACE’ and your first album?
Fahrenheit: Yes, now we are working more on the harmonization. In fact the aim of the first album is to let everyone see the energetic side of us, a very lively group, and ‘2FACE’ will let us know the inner side of us. Many people see us as idols but idols not only have looks, we want to overthrow this and let people know that idols can also do a lot of other things.
Epop: You guys once said that the four of you had a big fight in the past, what was it over? And why?
Fahrenheit: After the first album we were unsatisfied with each other, the emotions which were suppressed for too long finally break out and we quarreled very fiercely. But after that things stabled and we promised no matter seven or eight years later Fahrenheit will never disband.
Epop: What are the good points of a foursome?
Fahrenheit: That will be being able to split up the jobs when we are in a interview, for example Calvin is in charge of saying why the album is called ‘2FACE’, Jiro is in charge of saying the style of the album and the rest will add in a point or two.
Epop: If one day, someone is not in the right condition what will you guys do?
Fahrenheit: If someone is not in the right condition, the person beside him will silently laugh and wonder ‘What is he talking about’. But basically the rest will use an optimistic attitude to look at others. Afterall everyone has what he wants to show and say.
