Backstage Pass: An Interview with the Verve Pipe's Brian Vander Ark

Music News



The Verve Pipe recently rolled through town to play the Music Box Supper Club as part of the club's '90s night, a special show held in conjunction with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Inductions. Vander Ark and the crew are touring in support of Overboard, a moody collection of mid-tempo alt-rock tunes that represents a departure from the cheerful kids' tunes the band has recently been playing at kid-friendly concerts. Vander Ark spoke about the new album during this brief backstage interview.
