Opening for PUTP tour: Hurricane Bells

One of the opening acts for the 2010 Pick Up the Phone tour is Hurricane Bells. If  you were lucky enough to attend a concert during the 2009 Crazy Making Tour you are already familiar with Hurricane Bells even though you may not realize it.  Hurricane Bells is a solo project of Longwave’s lead singer, Steve Schiltz.

I was going to do a bunch of research about Hurricane Bells for this post but I realized that it had already been done for me.  Hurricane Bells has a song on the The Twilight Saga: New Moon Soundtrack called Monsters. Before the soundtrack was released TwilightMOMS.com interviewed Steve about his background, Monsters, Twilight and much more.  Get to know Hurricane Bells here.  (I promise there is a lot more to the interview than just Twilight so even you non-Twilight people should read it )

Here’s a sneak peek at what the write-up includes-

TM: What is on your iPod right now?

SS: I listen to CD’s, is that terrible? I am back on an M. Ward kick, ‘Transistor Radio’ again. I’m back on Fleet Foxes record, eve though there’s parts of me that wishes it was just a new My Morning Jacket record. Gilberto Gil, a Brazilian singer. I did a show with Little Joy on guitar and they turned me onto Brazilian music, one of the guys is from Rio. ‘Pinkerton’ by Weezer is back in rotation for me. They come and go.

I’m hoping my research for Stars of Track and Field will be this easy 🙂
