You may not be familiar with Limbeck; but if you are, chances are they hold a special place in your heart.
From 1999 to 2010, the Orange County, California-based rock act traversed the country countless times and toured alongside acts like Motion City Soundtrack, The All-American Rejects, and the Format. Additionally, not only are they the only band on the planet who recorded with a member of the Jayhawks before going on tour with New Found Glory, but they were also one of the last acts to exemplify what it was like to be a touring rock band before the ubiquitous influence of social media.
This experience was chronicled in the adventures they lived and sang about over the course of four full-length albums, and several EPs. In order to celebrate the ten-year reissue of their final album, 2007’s Limbeck, we caught up with all four band members — guitarist/vocalist Robb MacLean, guitarist Patrick Carrie, bassist Justin Entsminger and drummer Jon Phillip — as well as some notable fans to reminisce about a simpler time, when being in a band was more about writing songs than updating your Twitter status.
