Anton Shulepov, Konstantin Borovsky and Nikita, Horuk was known as the soloists of the popular group Quest Pistols. The whole country sang their songs “White dragonfly of love” and “You’re so beautiful.” Regularly, the band released the real hits, which immediately found a lively response from the audience. But gradually the musicians left the band, and then decided to return to show business, but under a new name. Anton, Konstantin and Nikita chose bright name “AGON” and now their new song stormed the charts. Not so long ago the group released their first album, which gained commercial success. Despite the fact that musicians like to talk about his personal life, “StarHit” they decided to reveal some secrets.
Why did you leave Quest Pistols and decided to form a new group?
We all left at different times. But it is our internal Affairs, which I would not like to say. Now our team is those whom we have known for a long time, with the guys we are all friends since childhood, so we decided that we need to come up with something new and decided to join the creative team.
I decided for myself that I will sing or solo, or only with those with whom it is a pleasure to work with.
Yes, we are a team in which all understand each other.
Not sorry to leave the old songs? You are something of the past performing repertoire?
With us was our author, he sends us songs from Los Angeles. Also we have “White dragonfly of love”. Other old songs we don’t sing.
But they are all preserved in the records of our votes, fans can listen to them whenever you want. And now we move forward, writing new songs.—
You maintain some contact with the last group?
Why? We now go our separate ways, we have our own goals.
Do not talk, we do not need it. No relationship, it does not follow that they occur.—
As fans reacted to the release of the new album? What you have already received feedback?
Fans are very pleased to have seen the gold part of the last group in a new creative unit. Our new clips they have accepted with enthusiasm. But more valuable is that people who are not our fans, estimated that the work done is very decent, at a good level. We want to do what we like and how we like.—
How long did it take you to record a new album?
The album was recorded quickly, we already had the songs ready. —
It is not afraid to create a new group? After all, Quest Pistols knew it, now need time to gain popularity.
We have credibility from the audience as each of us they know for a long time, but we all still have to pass again. Yes, now not everyone is familiar with our work, and when people come to the concerts, we say: “You can’t sing if you don’t know the lyrics, but to our songs you can dance”. And after the second chorus is characterized by a text and sing with us. We position ourselves as a “band you like”. We previously had a challenge, a bit of outrageous style. But now we have changed a little and singing love songs.
We are trying to regain popularity. Before leaving the scene, we stood on the highest step of a pedestal – we all knew we were loved and wanted. And now I have to start all over again.
Previously it was rumored that for you sings your producer. How do you feel about such gossip?
That kind of nonsense?
Each of the fans understand who has a voice and who sings what line.
It is easy to determine which of us sings it, so to such rumours, we are treated with irony. —
You used often to speak, and now a new group is often invited? As you are now with performances and tours?
For the group, which has existed not for long, we have a pretty busy tour schedule. Sometimes you even have to abandon some of the speeches to allow more time for the preparation of the show, special effects, keeping things on a more qualitative level.—
Anton, when you left Quest Pistols, you said you are tired of show business. Now do not fear that re-bored?
I warned about his departure from the band in six months. Then I had to take a break to re-start to do something. Now I get great pleasure from creativity. The main thing is to like what you do, then there will be fatigue.
Anton always took a laptop, for example, to finish the lyric video. I think it just says that people “burn” their work.—
The new album is called “I’ll love you.” Probably you are talking about specific thought dedicating these words?
No, it’s still an abstract phrase. And these words are suitable for everyone.
You can even repeat them like a mantra. Until you love yourself, not love you. This is our promise to the world, we’re not doing this to make money, and in order to share what is given to us from God.
We all have the same parents, we all have someone to love. —
You are not allowed into their personal lives of strangers – was not present in the social network photos with family, not talk about the children. Why?
Why? We are our creation, we are not pretending, when some of the old songs. It’s all from the heart. But to put his personal life didn’t deem it necessary. I’m showing pictures from vacation to their relatives. We are just like everyone else, we have nothing unusual in my life that there would be others. Here our creativity – Yes, it’s what separates us, so in social networks we are talking about it. We have such an “old school” position, we do not broadcast their daily lives.
I recently wrote one fan: “Why do you have Facebook sad poetry?” But when I feel good, I’m not trying to show everyone how I have fun, I enjoy the moment and all.
I don’t understand when social networks appear endless selfies. Recently we were at one event, and there was a girl who was constantly taking pictures. The feeling that she just for the sake of it there came. Even with us managed to do a selfie, I wonder how the length of her hand was enough, the four us walked into the frame..
Constantine, how you’ve changed after you create the family? How to raise a daughter? Would like to follow in your footsteps?
Of course, marriage really changed me. At some point I realized that is ready to create a family, felt that the time had come. I try to be a good parent. We talk a lot about everything, read the books together. Want daughter to live in an atmosphere of love and grew harmonious personality so she can do what she likes. And whether it’s showbiz or not, no matter. I would be glad if she also wants on stage. Many want to protect children from the areas in which they themselves work, because they understand how hard it is. But I’m not. She is doing ballet, but what do you want to choose the path is unknown. She is only four and a half years, so it’s still early to say. I am pleased that she knows all of our songs and asked me to put something from our repertoire. —
Anton, and you would like to make my daughter went chose the field show business?
This is my stepdaughter, or as I call it “cherepalkina”. She is now seven years old and when we go out walking or to the store, I sometimes get to know people and ask to take a picture. She is surprised and she asks, “do You know? Why do they want you to take a picture?” Yet it seems that TV watching only much older people, and when I’m shooting, she says: “You’ll sing for old people?” So she faces my fame, but some will choose the path of ” it’s too early to say.—
Nikita, and you, in spite of his colleagues are already thinking about getting married or not yet ready to start a family?
I’m already ready to creation of family, a few years to think about it, but not yet obtained. Apparently, I’m the problem. But I treat this situation calmly and give everything to the fate. If it so happens or does not develop, then it should be.
Well, or the cats will get!
If you meet a girl I want to marry, then he won’t hesitate. —
While connected relationships with Lera Kozlova from the group “Ranetki”. Why did you break up? Now you maintain some kind of relationship?
Why people leave – that something was wrong. We don’t talk now, maybe she is watching a group of “AGON” and all. But we do not support contact.
