Interview: DS catches up with Joey Briggs (The Briggs)

If you don’t know who Joey Briggs is, turn in your punk rock card right now. Not only is he the lead vocalist and guitarist for The Briggs, he’s also one of the coolest, most down-to-earth individuals you will ever meet. I met up with Joey before his performance at the Slide Bar in Fullerton last week and we caught up about him becoming a “punk rock dad”, stolen tour vans, Jay-Z/Alicia Keys/Randy Newman, and lastly Joey Briggs and The Briggs.

The Briggs begin work on new album

the-briggsIn a recent blog post to fans, Joey Briggs mentions that The Briggs have begun writing for a new record.

It has come time for the Briggs to make a new record and so as we speak Jason and myself have begun the writing process for our next album. I’m really looking forward to getting back in a heavy guitar, screaming vocals mode at the same time as doing my pansy acoustic songs:) It keeps me balanced.

In the last video, Joey introduces the world to his new baby Moxie as he describes why the band has been taking a short break…not so pointless. Watch them here.

The Briggs van stolen

the-briggsThis is sort of interesting.  Turns out The Briggs had their van stolen while on tour only to have it recovered by police after a high speed chase.  Here’s the story from the band themselves:

WELCOME TO CANADA! So we drive into Canada today, stop for a bite to eat, only to find our van and trailer gone! Some piece of S*&# stole our van and luckily thanks to some good samaritans who saw them do it. Called the cops, they caught up with him and they ended up in a high speed chase messing up our van and trailer pretty good along the way. He fled on foot and unfortunately got away!

The Briggs are currently working their way through North America on their “Come All You Mad Men Tour”.  You can check out the tour dates on the Dying Scenes Shows page.
