145: Riley Breckenridge (Thrice, Less Art)

The Trap Set with Joe Wong

Riley Breckenridge dreamed of becoming a professional athlete, but after his prospects were cut short after an injury, he turned to drums. He achieved success with Thrice, a band that features his brother Eddie and their childhood friends from Orange County. Riley discusses the benefits and drawbacks about being intensely hard on himself; struggling to find an identity when the band went on hiatus; selling suits; feeling a "loss of gravity" after losing his father; and his own approach to fatherhood.

Chapter 76: "Less Art, More Thrice" ...as read by Riley Breckenridge Riley Breckenridge took some time out of his insane schedule to come join the story. Yeah everyone is busy, but this guy... ...is in a little band called Thrice who is touring again: http://thrice.net ...has started a new band with members of Curl Up And Die, Thrice and Kowloon Walled City called Less Art: https://www.facebook.com/LESSARTBAND/ ...cohosts a music and baseball podcast with Ian Miller called Productive Outs: http://productiveouts.com ...started a joke side project baseball grind band called Puig Destroyer: https://puigdestroyer.bandcamp.com ...and produces his own music: https://rileybreck.bandcamp.com He is also an exhausted new parent trying to find his way. We discuss all his musical endeavors and even in- between band jobs. (He sold a suit to baseball phenom Mike Trout. Seriously.) Riley explains how touring is different than it was before being a dad and we go into the deep end of the pool about faith. Thank you Riley for taking the time and thanks Ian for connecting us. Also, this podcast has an exclusive Less Art clip for their song "Shapeshifter" that Riley was nice enough to let me push out there. Enjoy!
