The Local 913: Nameless in August

 
00:00

Zach Rock, frontman for the Pittsburgh folk rock group Nameless in August, has always been around music. In fact, he owns a very cherished musical family heirloom

“There’s a guitar in my family. It’s Awesome! It’s a 1938 Gibson F-hole. It’s beat at this point in life. But, John Rock has playing it, Joe Rock has played it, Jean Rock has played this guitar, Zach Rock has played it and my daughter, Brooklynn Rock, has played this guitar. Five generations have played this one Gibson guitar.”

Rock’s been fronting Nameless in August for 6 years, the last 5 he has been practicing yoga, which helps him in with band life. 

“I love my bandmates more, as a person who can take a breath and appreciate people for [being] individuals. There hasn’t been 6 years every day with sunshine, but we love each other and I love every bandmate. People aren’t trying to be mean; it’s just them being themselves and they’re being the best they can be. I’m trying to be the best I can be. It’s helped me understand them and understand myself when I go and rehearse. You just have to know we’re all there to love.”

Nameless in August’s new record Scars and Stars is out now. More information at their website.
