Paul Ridley singingTell readers a little about the origins of Saint Ridley. When did the band first form and how has the roster changed since forming?

The band first started in 2011-ish with Phil and Paul. A bunch of people have been added and removed since then until the current line-up stuck: Paul, Phil, Nathan & Rich.

Our new album Through Blackened Skies

What brought everyone together for this specific project?

We felt like it was time to shift gears and really try to put more into our music than we ever have, for us and our fans.

All the wonderful people we’ve become friends with all over the country.

Where does the band practice? Does Saint Ridley have a studio space? Mom’s basement? Warehouse?

Paul has a huge basement dedicated to jamming.

Were there any other ideas for the band’s name before Saint Ridley was chosen?

No, but somebody shot at Paul last summer when he was sitting on his front porch. Ten shots and all of them missed, thank God.
