Sophomore album "Never Look Back" out July 29 via The Fuel Music / Countdown Entertainment
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Midwest hard rock act 3 Pill Morning will join Canadian heavyweight Thousand Foot Krutch on the TFK-headlining "Exhale Tour" this summer. Adelitas Way and Smashing Satellites will also perform in support. Dates for the July/August run can be seen online at: http://www.bandsintown.com/3pillmorning and are also listed below.
Commented vocalist Jeff Stebbins: "We are big TFK and Adelitas Way fans to begin with and, with our new album being released at the same time, it just adds to the excitement we have for this tour. We can't wait to bring a high energy show with new music, too!"
3 Pill Morning is currently gearing up for the release of its sophomore album Never Look Back, which will drop on July 29 on Countdown Entertainment with distribution through The Fuel Music. The 11-track effort was successfully funded with the help of fans via PledgeMusic.com.
Stebbins commented on the PledgeMusic campaign: "We have toured like crazy over the past few years and always try to give a killer live show experience, but never had an opportunity to get fans involved with the music creation part. Pledge gives us the ability to give the behind the scenes stories along with a bunch of killer in studio experiences to the people that support the band to no end! There's a lot that goes into making an album and seeing it and being a part of it is something pretty special."

About 3 Pill Morning:
There's an old saying in the music community: an artist gets their whole career to write a debut album but just a few months to write the follow-up. 3 PILL MORNING defies this cliché. There's no "slump" in their sophomore set. The cathartic vindication in expression drawn from shared experience and real life struggle shines through in 3PM's music even more brightly than before, taking shape in loud, passionate celebration.
Never Look Back is a blistering, diverse, dynamic and altogether reinvigorating powerhouse of soaring melodic hard rock from the depths of each band member's soul. As the album title suggests, the record pushes forward, with eyes on the prize, while drawing strength and resilience from all of the highs and lows that have come before.
The three men of the steadfast, hard-working, blue-collar hard rock band put their music where their hearts are, squeezing every drop of emotion they can summon into each and every note. 3 PILL MORNING songs are evocative, memorable, and relatable. 3PM elicit strong feelings of connection and fellowship for anyone who perseveres against life's setbacks. It's the kind of earnest, Midwestern rock n' roll destined for the radio dial and equally at home on a giant arena stage or in an intimate, dimly-lit roadside tavern.
These guys are possessed with an indie band vibe while operating expertly in the Active Rock world. They've gone on tour with Shinedown, In This Moment, Hollywood Undead, Sevendust, Saving Abel, Buckcherry, Escape The Fate, 12 Stones and Smile Empty Soul, all since forming roughly ten years ago in Minnesota. Yet they remain accessible to their fans, hanging by the merch, engaging on social media, playing spontaneously organized acoustic sets and inviting people into the album making process via crowd sourcing.
Never Look Back follows 3PM's well-received debut, Black Tie Love Affair, which earned accolades from major press outlets like Revolver, a spot on Billboard's Heatseekers chart and marked the band's entry into the Top 100 at Active Rock radio. Black Tie Love Affair truly put 3 PILL MORNING on the musical map, thanks to songs like "Skin," "I Want that For You" and "Loser."
