ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA singer Lukas Rossi recently told Victor Balta of HeraldNet.com that he is ready to push forward with the band despite the fact that the group's self-titled debut CD came out to mostly bad reviews and didn't crack Billboard's Top 100, having sold a mere 49,000 copies in the United States since its November 21, 2006 release."Obviously you want the (record) sales and so forth, but there was no help, the label didn't really push it much," Rossi said last week. "It's kind of sad, you know, but the proof is in (the) pudding, bro, and the fans are going to see what the band's all about if they come to the show." While the post-reality show experience hasn't gone strictly according to the script, Rossi delights in the fact he's getting to see parts of the world he's never seen and getting the true rock star experience. "I'm having the time of my life, to be honest," he said. "Just seeing all the people, all the fans, and I've been keeping in contact with some of the fans online, trying to reach every one of them. "There's so much that goes into this tour besides just playing the shows, you know? I'm seeing the world, man. I wouldn't even fathom, back in the day, going two blocks down the road to get a pack of cigarettes. Now I'm going to New Zealand (in a few weeks)." Rossi didn't have a direct answer for the critics who dismiss the SUPERNOVA project as a one-time deal, but fans who are even curious should get a look at this band before it's all over. "I'm focusing on this right now," Rossi said. "It's just like any other band, brother. The band will be together as long as the band wants to be together, as long as the fans support it. We just take it a day at a time. I totally believe in SUPERNOVA. It's my band, man." Read the entire article at HeraldNet.com.
