Drummer Chris Prescott of PinbackHey there. My name is Chris Prescott and I am the drummer for the San Diego—based band Pinback. I started out playing guitar and keyboards with them a couple years ago when the gig came up, but quickly jumped to drums when that position became available. It’s been great playing in the band, for a number of reasons. First of all, I was a fan of their music anyway, so it wasn’t exactly a drag to learn the 30+ songs. Also the other band members and I were old friends, and our previous projects had played together many times over the years. It was really natural to finally end up in the same band together.

Pinback is currently on the first leg of our touring for the new album, Autumn Of The Seraphs. This year we will travel across America, Canada, Europe, Japan, and possibly China. It’s gonna be a busy one! So far the shows have been great and we’re getting a good rhythm to touring life. It’s always hard to leave friends and family back home, but I’m grateful to be able to do what we do. It would be a shame if I took all this for granted when it’s not every day that a musician can make ends meet solely through traveling and playing music they love. Of course we are also grateful that people come and enjoy what we are doing.
