During this year’s Purple Door festival, inReview caught up with Pillar for a few minutes aboard their air-conditioned tour bus. (A much appreciated break from the weekend’s heat).
So the other day I got my pre-ordered, autographed copy of Pillar's latest, Where Do We Go From Here. I've been waiting two long, long years since their last album, 2002's Fireproof, and a lot can happen in two years. Some bands form, release an album and burn-out in less time than that. Following a second lineup change that sees Lester Estelle replace former drummer Brad Noone, Pillar emerges from the studio like a bear after hibernation and makes a simple, but powerful, statement to the world: "We're back."
