1. For those who don’t know you, can you state your name and your role in the band?
Tom Dillon aka “One-take Tommy” – front-man
2. Describe the band in 3 words.
Western PA Metal
3. How would you describe your music to people checking you out for the first time?
Its just good hard rock, y’know, a little thrash, a little rock, Appalachian driven
4. How did the name Yigga Digga come about?
It’s the sound one makes when describing the certain kind of syncopation in our guitar riffs.
5. Your album Faded Glory comes out on May 13, what should people expect when they listen to it for the first time?
They should expect well-crafted, sociopolitical, experience-driven music.
6. Which songs are you most excited for people to hear? Why?
“Slave To The Life” – Its just a great genre-crossing cut. “Faded Glory” – It’s about being an American and the fight that all Americans had to have to get to where we’re at. “Into Eden” because after all the fighting we’re going right back down the sh***er
7. Why should people check out your album?
If you’re sick of the pop trash that’s been thrown down our throats. Stuck Mojo said it best, it’s the alternative to the alternative at this point. If you’re a fan of new rock, old rock, thrash, metal….it just does it all.
8. What is one thing that you wish to say about the album or a song on it that you may not have already said?
Really, we’re proud of all of it. It stands on its own. From what we’ve noticed so far, there’s something on it that appeals to everybody, and we’re fortunate for that, its very cool.
9. Thank you for doing this interview! Is there anything that you wish to say to the people reading this before we go?
Check it out! Drop the needle! Listen to it! Y’know if you’re having trouble with one song or another, let it run to the next one. That’s the approach we tried for this one was like the old records where you could just drop the needle and let it play. Pick what you like, play it, share it, and if the whole thing’s not for you….wait for Bieber’s next release.
