Michael Kiske did a very interesting interview with the webzine La Crítica Musical, after the show Unisonic at La Riviera, Madrid.
About Unisonic’s second album:
Kiske: “We want to finish a new album for the next year. Also we must keep in mind that before the first album we had not played live, so now after this tour I’m sure the new album will be much better. We have now more band quality, we know how we sound on the stage. I would be really surprised if the next album is not stronger, like band.”
He also commented about his return to the scene:
Kiske: “Since I was 17 years out the scene… in any other musical scene you would be history. In other scenes you only stays for 2-3 years and after that they forget you, but in this scene it doesn’t work like that and I’m grateful and I’m really enjoying it, is like healing injuries.”
About preparing something special for these shows?
Kiske: No, I’m not the only one in the band, I do not like the preparation, trying to design movements. We had some fights about it because they think it should be the case, but I do not like it. I like spontaneous things, even with using the legs, it can be entertaining. I don’t think the public should have a perfect show – they want to be entertained, no matter what happens, you are yourself. Kai is more for me, due to years of Helloween, but everyone has a different opinion, but I do not care, I do not prepare, except singing, of course.
Michael said about his new soloalbum:
Kiske: “I will be doing a new solo album with a friend of mine (Sandro Giampietro), This new album will have two songs of Elvis Presley on it and one could be an acoustic track.”

TNT Radio Rock broadcasted on October 17th, in the program “La Mirada Negra” an interview with Kai Hansen recorded in Madrid after the show at La Riviera, same like Kiske’s interview.
Kai did a nice statement:
Kai Hansen: “There is one thing that always nags me. I hate it when Unisonic play a song I’ve wrote for Helloween, and people write ‘Helloween cover version’, it’s not a fucking cover version, it is an original!”
