Here is an interview with Dennis Ward (Place Vendome and Unisonic are mentioned):

Here is one with Kai Hansen (Unisonic and a possible Helloween reunion are mentioned):

The interesting thing is that Kai mentions that the new Gamma Ray album will come out sometime "in January 2014 because this year we are going to make a lot so we've talked about giving us some more time". This could mean:

a) The Gamma Ray album will have no effect on the release of Unisonic's 2nd album
b) The 2nd Unisonic album will be delayed until May/June or September/October 2014 (I hope not). If this is the case the band will go on tour without having released the album (like Gamma Ray are doing now)

Break Out magazine (German edition) March/April 2013 includes a Dennis Ward interview, where he talks a little bit about Unisonic and some other interesting things:

Dennis being asked if the positive vibe of the new Pink Cream 69 album was a result of previous Unisonic material: “Yes, a lot of this mood transferred to Pink Cream 69 as well. For Unisonic it was very clear from the beginning what we wanted to avoid. Especially Michael Kiske attached great importance to ‘nice’ melodies. The lyrics should include life-affirming principles. Suddenly I understood what he really disliked in the scene for all these years and I also recognized that I somehow suffered from this for quite a while. To tell the truth: It is much easier to create a dark end time scenario of a world in which demons win over fallen angels, then creating a happy song. It’s fucking easy! This is the reason why so many metal bands do this. They just create a package with all clichés and prepare some dragon slayer lyrics…this is not very difficult.”

Dennis being asked what he thinks about Facebook:” I was never really so happy with facebook, despite that I have an account there. I never understood why people waste their time with it. I know many people who are addicted to it, also many colleagues or technicians who are just on tour. When I look at their posts like “Look, what exciting things I just do---or look which great city I just entered”, or posting pictures about what they just eat, then I cannot stop from telling them the next day “Yesterday we just hang around in the hotel and were bored to death”. Is this really interesting enough to tell this to all people? The reason is very simple: Everyone feels very important with facebook-very ‘special’…I don’t want to say that facebook is so bad and it offers the possibility to get information very fast and to get in contact with many people. But I really dislike this self-portrayal aspect. I dislike the superficiality of the people there, who don’t have more things to do than distinguish themselves and to make them important. This bores me. If someone posts his holiday pictures, I really would like to tell them “Why don’t you also post your address for thieves to enter your house while you are away? Some people explain everything of their life in facebook and when someone tells them some critics, they feel bullied.”

I have the same thoughts about FB. That is why i dont have facebook account anymore :)
I opened it when i had an online job, just to attract clients. As soon as I quit from that job, i closed the account. But it is hard to make them delete your data after you closed the account.

The biggest missunderstanding is that there are no facebook users, but products. In facebook you are the product, not the client nor an user. What surprised me the most is how easy is for facebook's products to describe themselves using tangible facts.

If i start talking about ethics, i would not finish: but for everybody, the following should be enough to made them close their account: Facebook conforms the biggest casino in the world, and they keep promoting gambling in underages.

If you want more reasons, Richard Stallman talks very clear about FB. But if you don't want to close your account, better don't read him ...

Here is a 2013 Interview with Mandy:

http://www.metalsymphony.com/?p=12679 (Spanish)

The interview is interesting and long. Mandy mentions several details about his work with previous bands and that the "new" album will be harder and more direct...The interview also includes several live pictures from Unisonic's 2012 tour.
