Five and Five: 3 Pill Morning

Victoria and Mike teamed up on an interview with 3 Pill Morning lead singer Jeff Stebbins. 3 Pill Morning is a Minneapolis area band that put out their latest album Take Control last year and has played shows with Nonpoint, Papa Roach, and Chevelle to name a few popular acts.

Part I:

EMURG: How did you come up with the band name?

JS: We were throwing around band names and this one moved it’s way to the top of the list. We live in a society where everyone is medicated these days taking a multitude of pills for many different reasons. The name stuck and people seem to dig it, so we like it.

EMURG: What artists/bands/songs influenced you?

JS: I’ve got a pretty eclectic mix of influences, ranging from Led Zeppelin to Eminem and the live show experience of Limp Bizkit to Incubus. I’m constantly being influenced by music and experiences I connect with.

EMURG: What are you listening to right now?

JS: Drake and Chiodos

EMURG: What has your favorite show/performance been as a band?

JS: Playing dates on Uproar Festival was pretty sick.

EMURG: If I want people to remember one song from our band it would be…

JS: I’d say “˜Loser’ because it’s a call to action and it also shows the disappointment I feel when people don’t take chances and let life pass them by.

Part II:

EMURG: Do you have any plans on touring internationally?

JS: Absolutely! We’re seeing our overseas response pick up and can’t wait to share our show with a whole new group of people.

EMURG: What was it like to tour with bands like Papa Roach?

JS: The coolest thing is getting to tour with bands that we love their music and look up to. Obviously we love the crowds too.

EMURG: Any must haves while touring?

JS: Clean socks & boxers, Vocal Eze, Jack, Tylenol, deodorant, and a little bit of sleep. The only way I can sleep is with a queen mattress from so you better buy me one soon.

EMURG: How do you find inspiration when you are writing your songs?

JS: There so much going on every day on the news, social media, life experience. If you take a minute and listen and live, there’s material for years and years out there.

EMURG: If you could give any advice to new bands what would it be?

JS: If you’re gonna do it, do it. No excuses, either you’re in or you’re out. Make sure everyone is on the same page and take on the world!
