MARK AGHAJANIAN SAID: “IT WAS COMPLETELY UNEXPECTED TO WIN THE HOT VOX HEAT. WE'RE JUST TAKING IT ONE STEP AT A TIME. WHEN I STARTED THE PROJECT, I REALLY WASN’T EXPECTING IT TO RECEIVE THE KINDNESS AND SUPPORT IT HAS SO FAR, SO I’M VERY GRATEFUL FOR THAT. I'M REALLY LUCKY TO BE PERFORMING WITH THE BAND I HAVE BEHIND ME - WE'RE ALL PUMPED AND PREPARED TO TAKE THE FINAL ON HEAD FIRST. WIN OR LOSE, IT'S A GREAT STEP FOR US TO PLAY A VENUE LIKE THE O2 ISLINGTON. WE HAVEN'T REALLY TALKED ABOUT WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF WE WERE TO WIN, BUT WE’RE REMAINING OPTIMISTIC AND ARE GRATEFUL TO BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY.”
