Dillinger 4’s Erik Funk: My 2-year-old son hates our music
"Founded in 1994, Dillinger Four is 19 years old. They’ve played something like 10 or 14 D4ths of July, depending who you ask. They’re toured the globe, released records on Fat Wreck Chords, and they all work full-time in addition to being Twin Cities punk godfathers. In the past year, though, the band members have become fathers themselves: Drummer Lane Pederson has a son and a daughter, and bassist Paddy Costello is a new father as of this May.
Gimme Noise chatted with guitarist/vocalist Erik Funk on his own family’s growth and how it balances with the band — and how new recorded material is a priority.”
