You’ve kicked off an extensive tour – how do you stay energized and motivated on the road?
The biggest thing is our daily rhythm of reminding each other that we truly love each other. After that probably comes running. I love getting out of the van and running through the town we’re singing in that night. You get a nice weight of what you’re walking into. At the moment we’re driving up through California listening to the Live Jeff Buckley record. Also, it’s amazing to go to cities we’ve never been to and have people come out and listen to our music. That never gets old.
The Lone Bellow has been teasing us with snippets for the last couple of weeks, but today, NPR's All Songs Considered has posted the full title track to their upcoming album, Then Came the Morning. In introducing the song, Stephen Thompson write, "The Lone Bellow has lost none of its sleekly soaring charm."
Also, over at Bestnewbands.com, Caitlin Peterkin interviewed Zach Williams about the band's ascendency, musical influences, and the new album.
What do you think of Then Came the Morning? We'd love to hear from you, so leave a comment here, or let us know in the forum!
Who We Are
We are Abra and Bobbie, two friends living in Boston who go to a lot of concerts together. We saw The Lone Bellow, having never heard of them, and could not believe our good fortune in discovering such talent. We now try to go by the "Four-Hour-Rule", meaning if we can get to a show within four hours, we will be there, hopefully right up front.
