Taproot: An Interview with vocalist Stephen Richards

After a quiet couple of years, Taproot released their fourth disc, Our Long Road Home, last month. This disc was recorded in the band's home town of Ann Arbor, MI and was produced by Tim Patalan (Sponge, Watershed).

The band is out on the road in support of the new disc and they are playing a run of shows this month with Sevendust. The band is playing Irving Plaza tomorrow night (October 7th) and here are the other area tour dates:

Oct 8 2008 7:30PM, Mulcahys, Wantagh, New York
Oct 11 2008 8:00PM, The Chance, Poughkeepsie, New York

I had the opportunity to catch up with Taproot vocalist Steven Richards over the weekend and we talked about the new disc, some of the one-off acoustic sessions that the band has been playing, working with Billy Corgan and more. Here is a link to the podcast feed View RSS XML and here is a direct link to the mp3.

Tickets for tomorrow night's show at Irving Plaza are $23.50. Our Long Road Home is available in retail outlets and there is a different online-only bonus track on both the iTunes and Amazon.com versions.
