Local Music Tap: Mpls-Born ‘3 Pill Morning’ Emerging On Nat’l Stage
It’s hard not to respect a band as hardworking as the emerging Minneapolis rock-quartet, 3 Pill Morning, who say it took over 5 years, 500 shows and a hand full of member changes for things to finally “click.”
Formed in late 2004, lead vocalist, Jeff Stebbins, stayed and kept evolving 3 Pill Morning while the other musicians moved on and formed other bands. Stebbins eventually connected with guitarist Ryan Walch, bassist Ryan Lee and drummer Trent Laugerman – who form the current makeup of the band.
Now, the riff-rocking, angst-shouting “anthemic rock band” is a year removed from their debut album, Black Tie Love Affair, and is currently on a huge summer tour with Hollywood Undead, Escape The Fate and more.
The tour is a part of House of Blues 20th Anniversary Tour.
“To say we’re stoked to be on tour with kick ass bands like Hollywood Undead, Escape the Fate, Pop Evil and Trapt would be an understatement,” Stebbins said. “We’ve been on some great tours the past couple years, but with our new single ‘I Want That for You’ taking off and the incredible fans we’ve made, we can’t wait to get out and tour the country. We can feel the energy and know that this is gonna be a killer time!”
On July 2, 3 Pill Morning will be playing at the Skyway Theatre as part of the tour. Click here for ticket information.
