They got their start in Sioux Falls, and now, they're getting a re-start in Sioux Falls. The Spill Canvas returns home to put on their first show in more than a year.
For Nick Thomas, Dan Ludeman, Landon Heil, and Joe Beck Friday is a night a year in the making.
"We have ditched the label and the management and all those kinds of things so those, everything's kind of new," said Thomas.
"It's been so long since all four of us have gotten together and played in front of people. We are so excited," said Ludeman.
The band's self-described "indefinite hiatus" ends Friday night, when The Spill Canvas takes the stage at The Vault. The reality of the moment begins to set in for members, who last performed together last fall.
"A few days ago, well, maybe a week ago, I was starting to get a little nervous," said Ludeman.
"Oh, I'm nervous. Nervous is probably the best way to put it--but exciting," said Thomas.
For the band, the concert marks a fresh start.
"It kind of feels like one big long dream, like we fell asleep for a little while and now we're finally waking up and doing it again," said Ludeman.
To keep it going, they'll need help from those who have been behind them from the start.
"We're launching this Kickstarter campaign. It's a fundraiser to donate to a fund for our new record," explained Thomas.
Without a label, the funds are necessary for the band to release any new music. But for now, the focus is on the music and getting back to their roots.
"We are so excited. It's going to be awesome," said Ludeman.
Friday's concert starts at 8 p.m. at The Vault in Sioux Falls. Avian Sunrise and Audri Vargas will open the show. Tickets are available at the door for $20.
