BW&BK; recently caught up with vocalist Brittany Paige. An excerpt from the story is available below.
Out Of The Pit also features an unexpected guest appearance from former Triumph guitarist Rik Emmett, who shreds his way through a cover of Motörhead’s ‘Ace Of Spades’.“That actually came about through Greg,” Paige reveals. “Rik Emmett is one of his friends from back in the day and Greg asked him about doing it, and Rik was totally into it. He liked our songs and showed his support by laying a solo down. So that solo in ‘Ace Of Spades’ is all Rik Emmett.”
Which is a huge deal given there are a legion of disgruntled Triumph fans that would sell body parts to hear Emmett shred up a storm for the span of even one album.“Especially with the kind of music that he’s doing this days, sure. It’s very, very cool that he would do that for us and we’re really appreciative. We don’t really understand why we’ve been given that honour but we’ll take it (laughs).”
