Throughout the past 15 years, the music of San Diego based band Slightly Stoopid has been custom built for summertime, beaches, and for things not-so-family friendly. The punk/reggae fusion band spends at least half their year on the road, spreading those vibes to fans across the States and Europe.
After two releases in as many years in 2007 and 2008, the band is already starting work on their upcoming album, which is due out sometime in 2011. Even though the band is recording, it hasn’t stopped them from getting out on the road for their summer tour. This year’s summer tour will also include dates with Cypress Hill and a spot at Lollapalooza in August, with the U.S. tour wrapping up with the Austin City Limits festival this fall.
Before the tour’s opening gig in Portland, I had a chance to talk with Slightly Stoopid drummer Ryan Moran, and discussed the success of the single “2 A.M.”, and the grind of the yearly summer tour.
Here’s my interview with Ryan:
