This Minneapolis based, melodic modern rock/pop quintet has done a lot in the four-plus years they've been around. The group has a national touring list, national radio play and has even been featured on MTV's The Duel. Later this spring the band plays the prestigious South-by-Southwest music festival in Austin, TX. Music fans won't want to miss this lyrical and catchy hard rock act as they head to the Cruise In. - City Pages


“If you enjoy the independent music scene, then definitely give these guys a listen because I think it might be possible for you to be hearing 3 Pill Morning on a larger scale than just independently released cds in the future.” - Rick Gebhardt (Decoy Music)

“3 Pill Morning has the unique ability to pull people in and focus on their show, very captivating group.” - JeremyWhite (Rox Booking)

“…Very tight musicians that blend a mixture of rock, rap, and funk together. Besides being a kick-ass band, they are some of the coolest, most professional guys I have ever had play at the club.” - Brian Adamovich (Indie Artist Central)

“Check out the above band, Minneapolis' own 3 Pill Morning (coming soon to a radio station near you), who you probably already recognize from their arse-kicking performance at this year's Band Day.” -ndsu spectrum
- Noted


The title of 3 Pill Morning's new CD "The Side Effects of Chronic Ambition" is self-explanatory. This is the product of pure independent gumption and desire.

"The Side Effects of Chronic Ambition," released Oct. 2, is an independent release masked in major-label sound. The songs are solidly written and crisply produced, and it is a good listen from beginning to end.


The first single from the album, "Nothing's Real," has a stuck-in-your-head melody that's hard to shake and is bound to be accepted by mainstream rock listeners.
For me personally, I'm prone to spinning tracks such as "Sweet Smell of Taken" or the cover of The Grassroots song "Let's Live for Today." A few other songs to take note of are the "Embrace the Gray," a straightforward hard rock track, and the melancholy scream feature "Disappear."

3 Pill Morning is a band that has a tight grasp on writing catchy rock melodies without being cliche or boring. This is the soundtrack to a high-energy Minnesota hard rock show.

The Minneapolis-based band has been making headway in the regional and national music scenes since its formation in 2003. Besides opening for national acts including Buckcherry, Trapt, Default and Nonpoint, the track "Pretty Woman Syndrome" from the CD "Life Dynamic" was featured on MTV's Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Duel.

3 Pill Morning performs regularly in St. Cloud. The group's next performance is set for Nov. 9 at The Rox. You can hear the single "Nothing's Real" and more on www.jam.mn.

This week's Band of the Week, 3 Pill Morning, has a distinct sound blending hard rock, hip-hop, and punk. With a band anthem of "Get it on the road and get it going," they've built both their business and their fan base from the ground up. 

Jeff Stebbins (vocals), Adam Seiberlich (vocals/guitar), Ryan Walch (guitar), Ian Combs (bass), and Dave Ackley (drums) hail from Minneapolis, Minnesota, where they first played together in 2002. In the spring of 2003 they released their first EP, The Product. When radio began to take notice, they began to tour, and followed that initial release with Clarity in 2005, and Life Dynamic in May of 2006.

Recently, Jeff Stebbins agreed to speak with me over instant messenger about what direction the band is heading, their approach to songwriting, and the internet as a promotional tool.

Hello, Jeff, how are you doing?

Good. We had a show last night just got back into town.

I didn't see any dates on your website when I looked earlier. Are you just finishing up a run of dates?

We've been playing sporadic shows while we're working on writing a lot of new music.

Life Dynamic is your third EP since forming the band.
Are you looking to do a full length album soon?
We're in the process of working on a full length record right now.

By working on, do you mean writing, recording, or both?

Right now we are writing a bunch of songs. We're hoping to record early 2007.

I found the songwriting on Life Dynamic to be particularly strong and the songs have a very unique feel to them. Are you the songwriter of the group?

The writing process is very collaborative in 3 Pill. Everyone has a different spin on each song and we try to put all those ideas together to create our sound.

Collaborative in all senses? Or does one member bring a skeleton of an idea to the table and you go from there?

Each song starts in a different place. One might start with a riff and another might start with a beat. Some may come with a lyrical concept or melody. I guess it all depends on the day.

To those who have yet to hear your music, how would you describe your sound?

I guess I'd call it melodic hard-rock or melodic hard-groove.

That sounds about right to me. You definitely have to include melodic in there, especially with Life Dynamic.

We like to have a dual lead vocalist to keep the music dynamic.

As an independent artist, does it seem like it's hard to get your music heard?

It's gotten a lot easier with the internet and with sites like Myspace and Pure Volume, etc. But it seems we can never have enough people checking out our music.

How large of a role do those networking sites and the ones dedicated to independent music play? Is your current plan to continue as an independent artist, or are you actively searching for a record label?

We're hoping to be so strong as an independent band and an independent business that we don't necessarily have to search for labels. Then who knows. There are a lot of advantages to having control of your own project on all levels.

What would you say some of the biggest advantages are for 3 Pill Morning?

We are getting a chance to build something from the ground up. With our work and dedication to our music, we know at the end of the night the level we can take it to depends on us.

What are your plans for the future?

To continue writing and evolving as a band, get in the van, hit the road, and play show after show. Hopefully, we make enough noise to keep the support growing for our music.

News and tour information for 3 Pill Morning can be found at the band's website. Four streaming MP3s and a video are available at their Myspace Profile page. Later this week, look for a review of their latest EP, Life Dynamic.

Discography

Still working on that hot first release.

Bio

Forged in the hard rock proving grounds of Minneapolis, MN in 2004, 3 Pill Morning could be described as trial by fire. Simply put, music was never a question for lead vocalist Jeff Stebbins and failure was never an option. While other musicians were moving from project to project and band to band, Stebbins took a different path, consistently growing and evolving 3 Pill Morning into an anthemic rock band no one could deny.

It took the better part of 5 years, over 500 shows in basement bars and the constant ups and downs of any young unsigned band. But nothing would stop the evolution of 3 Pill Morning. The band forged on, hitting the road harder than ever before, solidifying their sound, and cementing their spot as a national touring act sharing the stage with the likes of Hollywood Undead, Sevendust, In This Moment and Theory of a Deadman. Through 3 Pill Morning’s consistent mile grinding and road warrior focus, the band has built an inspiring fan base with die hard supporters worldwide.

After a chance introduction in a city better known for honky-tonks and banjos than gut-wrenching riffs, the band found a creative match with Nashville based producer Jon King (Augustana, Throwing Gravity, Future Leaders of the World) . They quickly went to work writing, recording, and re-vamping songs and ideas to take that next sonic step. In 2012 the band signed a recording contract with King’s Page 2 Music and New York based A2Z Entertainment. “We were really intentional with everything this time around,” comments Stebbins, “as a band we had a specific vision for what we wanted to do and that really set the tone for everything from the writing process down to the artwork and suits we wear live."

Two months of all-night recording sessions later, the band emerged from the studio with a renewed vigor and a slick concoction of fist pumping riffs, infectious melodies and an energy that can only be described as relentless. 3 Pill Morning’s label debut 'Black Tie Love Affair' pegs all the dials and pulls no punches. The band’s lead single ‘Rain’ immediately raced into the top 100 Active Rock songs, the album hit #62 on the Billboard Heat Seekers chart and their sleek video capturing the underdog story ‘Skin’ has lit up YouTube. All signs are positive that this band’s determination and fan-centric demeanor will keep them on the radar for years to come.
