Last year at Firefly we had the opportunity to hangout in the artist compound and interview Chicago based rock & roll band Twin Peaks. Made up of Cadien, Connor, Clay, Colin, and Jack, they describe themselves on Facebook as five doods, gnarly ‘tudes, total hunks, play to drunks. We had a couple beers, played some pool, and heard all about their crazy tour stories.
TFM: How does it feel to be at Firefly?
TP: We just got here and have been hanging out. Haven’t really checked out much. But what we have noticed is that it’s really muddy.
TFM: Oh yeah. You guys have been pretty busy. You released an album in August and recently released a single.
TP: Ya. Our single just released on Record Store Day and we’re starting to work on a new album throughout the summer and recording.
TFM: Awesome. So you’re at the end of this tour, until your new album comes out?
TP: Yep. We have two more shows then we are taking about a week off, ten it’s really just festivals throughout the summer and in-between the festivals we’ll be recording in Massachusetts at a friends place.
TFM: Rad. When do you expect the album to drop?
TP: I, uh, don’t want us to be held to anything, but I wanna say the spring. It’ll be done before the years over and then it takes about 3 months to get the vinyl ready, so probably the spring.
TFM: So you’ve done a lot of festivals in the last month, which one(s) were your favorite?
TP: We did Sasquatch on our way out here, which was really good. We also did Burgerama recently which was a good time. That’s LA based event held by Burger Records. They do Burgerama every year and it’s all the Burger bands. It’s always really fun because we’re with a bunch of people who play the same kind of music we do pretty much, and everyone was pretty rad.
TFM: What’s the craziest sh** thats happened on the road so far?
TP: On this tour?
TFM: Yeah, this tour. Or any tour?
TP: Sasquatch was insane! It was crazy. It was a wild festival & we camped for 4 days, got the sh** beat out of us by the sun. It was awesome.
TP: (JD) For me, I had a couple days. Where I had a sore throat, so I bought a bunch of edibles in LA, & I had 3 days in a row where I kept going overboard, thinking I could handle them & I ended up tripping & going to bed really early in an anxious state. SO that was an interesting couple days for me.
Final Thoughts: Shoutout to the landlords of Chicago, those are our homies. LANDLORDS! Yeah, those are our boys. That's what you're looking for right? Shoutout to the homies!
