One Question Interviews: Pilkington

Adam (Pilkington)

SPB: In the past the vocals were a shared duty. This approach is almost completely abandoned. What changed?

Adam: We were lucky to have a few different really talented songwriters in the band. Becca had started writing more as we prepped for our LP and was beginning to come up with some of the tracks that would end up being favorites of ours on the record.

Honestly though, I think the big change happened when we played a Halloween tribute band show as Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Everyone got super into character and it was a blast. We made a band trip to the local thrift store that day and looked for the finest ‘80s attire we could find. Lots of hairspray and hair gel involved too. Anyways, Becca went full method actor on that Joan Jett frontwoman role and really took the reins leading the band from there on out. Minus the hairspray though.
