Beard Snuggles with Nick Harris from Luther!

Beard Snuggles with Nick Harris from Luther!

Today’s episode brings you the last of our three part series of interviews while on tour sabbatical in New York City! And BOY what an epic episode we bring you this week with one of our favorite humans, Nick Harris from the Philadelphia band: LUTHER.

This interview has been in the works for nearly a year and a half, but finally far away from both of our homes we meet up in New York where Luther was opening for Anti-Flag, celebrating their 20 year anniversary.

We wandered across the street from Webster Hall to a loud sports bar and continued to inject large amounts of beer. We proceeded to talk about the origins of Nick’s Musical career. We talk about a life or death situation that brought the band closer together and with a more intent sense of purpose. Not to mention we talk about The Bouncing Souls, Chunksaah Records, and all while trying to unravel the mysteries of the Universe! CLICK HERE TO READ MORE & DOWNLOAD/LISTEN AND CLIPS

20 – THE BOUNCING SOULS talk COMET, adulthood, their 20 year anniversary, and a potential RISE RECORDS side project

The other members of the band couldn’t handle Greg and I’s awesomeness and opted not to be in the photo. Can’t say I blame them.

HELLO FRIENDS! I can’t believe I got to sit down with one of my all time favorite and most influential bands and bullshit with them about life the universe and everything. We begin this interview with Bryan, and slowly but surely all 4 members of the band join us. We talk about adulthood, having kids, day jobs, getting old. We talk about their 20th Anniversary shows and the influence it had on their new album COMET. We talk about Rise Records and Pete talks about the potential BS side project: WHEN THE BATS FLY THROUGH!

Special Thanks to K8 Hiltz from Chunksaah for helping setting this up. K8 is GREAT!
We open up today’s episode with “Baptized,” the first song off COMET. We end the episode with the album’s title track: “Comet.”

In today’s episode we talk a little bit about the interview I did with the Bouncing Souls in 2001 or 2002 on the HOW I SPENT MY SUMMER VACATION Tour. That interview will be at the bottom of this post. Oddly enough, I was 20 years old when I did that interview. This is episode 20 of the Podcast! Woo hoo!
