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.
