This week, "A Change of Tune" host Joni Deutsch talks with Tucker Riggleman (vocals, guitar) from the Shepherdstown-based rock band Bishops. Since the dissolution of his other West Virginia alt-outfit, The Demon Beat, Riggleman has been focusing on creating gritty yet accessible rock melodies as the frontman for Bishops, as evidenced by the band’s newest release, Silver Lining. Check out the interview below to learn more about Bishops’ musical past, present, and future. If you're a fan of raw and raucous garage rock in the same vein as Japandroids, this interview and music are recommended for you.
