sc2 Sugarcult front man Tim Pagnotta talks to TWRY about their new album Palm Trees & Power Lines, the WARPED tour, and everybody’s favorite interview subject- lesbians!

Popping head first out of the womb of sunny Santa Barbara, Sugarcult has been rocking out for about five years now. Their first record “Start Static” started them on a whirlwind road trip that lasted over two years. While their energy is evident on the cd, nothing matches their live performance. The more they play live, the more fans they collect, and I’m guessing they have quite a collection. They recently released their follow up cd “Palm Trees & Power Lines” and the single “Memory” can be heard on radio everywhere and the video isn’t hard to find either. The CD is a continuation of their sound but with some deeper vibes, darker lyrics, and a new drummer. The cd seems to be a somewhat biographical account of the band’s past few years on the road and living the lifestyle that it takes to be as dedicated to your craft as they seem to be – holding on to things you love or love to hate, missing the things that move you and make you move, and letting go to the loves in our lives that hurt us most. They are currently gearing up for a few months on the main stage of the WARPED tour and lead singer/guitarist/songwriter extraordinaire Tim Pagnotta was cool enough to answer some questions for me…
