Thanks for doing our interview Saddle of Southern Darkness. You have a very interesting band name can you tell us about its origin?
Its our pleasure, Thank you for the offering. The name is actually a play on Norwegian black metal band Immortal’s album title “Sons of Northern Darkness” after a close friend of the band(Sean Ragan) suggested we use a saddle. Thus creating Saddle of Southern Darkness.
What do you feel has been your most memorable show thus far in your career?
I would have to say Fire In The Mountains music festival 2018. It’s unlike any North American festival out there located in Jackson, Wyoming with the Grand Tetons creating the perfect backdrop for our type of music.
What musicians would you most like to collaborate with?
Those Poor Bastards, Hank 3, James Hunnicutt to name a few.
If you could only be remembered by one song what would it be?
I don’t think I’ve written that one yet…. but if I had to choose it would be “Rotten Shiver” soon to be released on our next record “The Feral Few”.
How would you describe your live show to any readers of ours who have not seen your show yet?
Energetic, clandestine, We bring a lot of different elements to our shows musically and have a don’t take any shit kind of attitude.
Every band has a why. What is your why when it comes to creating music?
It’s a outlet for expression and we try to push the boundaries and limits that music has to offer enthralling people and ourselves to push through the struggle.
If you could only listen to one song on repeat for a solid week. What song would you choose?
I don’t think there is a song I could listen to on repeat for a week straight without going nuts. But since I got to choose.
