Interview with ONE OK ROCK at Vans Warped Tour '14

oneokrockers:

An interview with ONE OK ROCK before their Vans Warped Tour ‘14 show.

Less than an hour before their set, JaME had the opportunity to catch up with ONE OK ROCK’s Taka and Ryouta while on the Vans Warped Tour ’14, Auburn, WA.

Can you start with an introduction?

Taka: My name is Taka.
Ryota: (in broken English) I’m Ryouta… I’m bassist! (laughs)
Taka: Yeah, I’m the vocalist. (laughs)

Since this is ONE OK ROCK’s first US tour during the Vans Warped Tour, how do you feel about it so far?

Taka: It’s pretty exciting … yeah. We’ve never been to places before so every place is a learning experience for us … It’s kind of crazy stuff so it’s really cool for us.

Most of the attendees here today might not know who you are. Because of that, what kind of reaction are you expecting from the crowd?

Taka: It’s the first time for this kind of tour so I don’t know many things but we’ve made many friends on this tour, so yeah … (laughs)

Vans Warped Tour is celebrating its 20th anniversary but ONE OK ROCK is also in the mood for celebration as your 10th anniversary is coming up.

Taka: Oh, yes! Almost!

Is that pretty exciting?

Taka: (nodding excitedly) Yeah!

When playing rock festivals in Japan and say, Warped Tour ’14, what are some of the differences?

Taka: Well Japanese fans … it’s almost like … diving? Yeah. Like crazy …? But in America, how to say it … it’s like … almost the same but a little different.

In what way?

Taka: Hmmm …

Is everyone more energetic?

Taka: Yeah, yeah!

Like you’d probably see more moshing here?

Taka: (nodding) Yeah, sometimes.

Where do you see ONE OK ROCK in another ten years?

Ryota: For the 20th?
Taka: Yeah, I don’t know.

Is it too scary to think about it?

Taka: I want to keep our style … the band is almost like life for us, so I want to keep it the same.

So what does ONE OK ROCK mean to you?

Taka: … Life.
Ryota: (broken English) Yeah, me too.

Speaking of life, ONE OK ROCK’s album, Jinsei x boku =, the title is like a math equation. What is on the other side of the equation, as in what does life and self “equal” to you?

Taka: Oh, there’s a difficult explanation for it. (laughs) There’s “life” but when you “multiply” with “yourself,” the answer relies on the “life” and the many great things in it, which is what is conveyed in that kind answer.

Lastly, what’s your favorite song to play live?

Taka: I think …Deeper Deeper and The Beginning


JaME would like to thank ONE OK ROCK, their manager and the Vans Warped Tour ’14 staff for their time

From Sato Takeru photobook ‘ALTERNATIVE’
Takeru × Taka Cross Talk<4>
~translation~
Exchanging cups of ‘sake’, they’re gradually changing the subject to their change and improvement since they first met till now.
 
Sato: Taka has mellowed, compared with what he used to be.
Taka: It’s thanks to my friends who are always around me, including Takeru. I never know whether I have changed or not by myself, you know, because I’m living my current life. But looking at my friends around me, I notice Takeru, for example, has also been changing little by little. I notice it because I am near him. At the same time, I, who can notice his change, have changed, I think… Then I can challenge the next thing. Yes, it’s my friends. Those who are around me explain something plainly, not by words, but by mood, I suppose.
Sato: Probably I’ve changed quite a lot, I think. And there are a lot of reasons for that. The most significant change is that I came to be more and more known, isn’t it? After all when I first met Taka, people in the world didn’t know me at all, but now, fortunately, most people somehow know me. Since the relationship starts in this situation, I’m getting shyer and shyer to the strangers. When I was in my teens, I wasn’t aware that I am shy, but now I think I’m shy and it’s hard for me to open up my mind.
—More people approach you because you’re the famous Sato Takeru, I guess.
Sato: So I’m getting more and more inclined to protect the ‘Sato Takeru’. For example, if I should show a tired look just a little, they might say, ‘He is a cold person’. The more I get into such a mind, the less normally I can behave with people.
Taka: In that sense, our relationship has changed and I feel we are becoming something like a ‘husband and wife’ LOL.
Sato: My boyfriend, girlfriend, closest friend, husband, and wife. We’re married persons, two of us, right?
Taka: It’s rather hard to explain to others lol. But suppose here is a person named Takeru and I’m his wife, right? If, after years, my husband brings up quitting his job to be a farmer in the country, I won’t stop him. He is such a person. It’s no use stopping him. So I’ll enjoy the situation. I’ll never stop him.
Sato: Right.
Taka: You can try. Then share what you’ve got with me, I feel. You’d do so, too, I think, right?
Sato: He sometimes says something on the impulse of a moment, so in that case, I’d say, ‘There might be another way like this’. But if he decided so after thinking, really thinking a lot, I will never stop him. The reason why our relationship is something like that of boyfriend-girlfriend is that when I went to see a live … I go to almost all the OOR lives … then I should sometimes go to a live where this guy is in the worst condition, having a cold. I see a live when he is in his best condition, too, you know. When I’m watching a live like he is in terrible condition having a cold, my feelings are just like Minami-chan’s, who is watching Tatsuya’s baseball game in the comic ‘Touch’, or Touko’s, who is watching Aniya in ‘ROOKIES’. It’s the manager’s feelings. Though the audience around me is in fever, I’m watching him from the seat, saying to myself, ‘Hang in there, Taka!’
Taka: I had a policy not to go to his workplace often. For where Takeru comes is of course my workplace, but it’s a live and a live is, say, ‘the place to show to others’, right? Takeru won’t invite me to ‘the place to show to others’ stubbornly. The Amuse actors’ live at the end of the year, for example. ‘Never come. If you come, I don’t even care anymore’, he says LOL. In our relationship, I am a wife and Takeru is a husband these days, I think. I didn’t understand what he says about Minami-chan in ‘Touch’ till recently. But last year, I visited the shooting site, because I insisted I had to see the shooting site in order to create a song for ‘Rurouni Kenshin’. At that time, ‘Ah, this is what Takeru has always said’, I thought.
Sato: I can’t tell the detail because it has not been released yet, but he came to see the scene that you could exactly call the ‘death-struggle’. 
Taka: This is what the phrase ‘I felt like running away’ means, I thought, ‘Oh, my gosh! … Just awesome …’ Takeru is always doing his best at any time, I know, and we went to eat out together during the shooting, many times. When I’m tired, I go home at my timing, but Takeru never fails to come even after the shooting is over. He says, drinking delicious beer, chatting idly with his best friends, and going home is the best thing for him. I think it would be better to take it easy and return home to go to bed because he has the shooting early in the morning the next day. But he never fails to come along with us when I say, ‘Let’s go to another place.’ If someone there is distressed and wants to have somebody listen to him, for example, Takeru is sure to come and listen to him. I’d seen him like that and visited the shooting site of the ‘Rurouni Kenshin’, where I realized he had come to us after such a tough job. I had a renewed respect and thought he is just terrific.
