Will Noon has drummed for Fun., Starlight Run, Breaking Pangea, Nate Ruess and countless other acts that are likely in your iTunes. However he’s also a Renaissance Man in the true sense of the phrase who is an avid motorcyclist and early adopter of this super obscure type of cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin. This episode of the podcast sees us addressing all of those issues in depth as well as the genesis of his latest musical project Mourners, a collaboration with former Going Off Track guest Jarrod Gorbel (The Honorary Title, Night Terrors of 1927). If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to ride a bike across the country, buy strange digital currencies at a time when everyone thought you were insane or perform high-profile gigs like The Grammys and Saturday Night Live, you’ll definitely get a kick out of this hour-long conversation with the pride of Long Island percussion. From post-hardcore to pure pop punk and everything in between—including a stint on the infamous label Victory Records—Noon has proved himself to be an incredibly versatile drummer who shows no signs of slowing down, so you should definitely listen to what he has to say. Hey, you might even learn something.
