This week on SPIN Presents Lipps Service, host Scott Lipps spoke with Lipps Service alumni The Struts’ Luke Spiller and Adam Slack. The podcast follows Spiller’s recent appearance alongside Queen at the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert on Sept. 3 in London.

In a lengthy conversation, the bandmates discussed their recent tour of Japan, their latest release, “Fallin’ With Me,” and some inside stories about their friendship. They also touched on the current state of rock music and what it takes to market a rock band in a TikTok-ified industry. Spiller dives into what he was most anticipating singing with Queen at both Hawkins tributes as well as upcoming music and touring by the Struts. This episode marks Spiller and Slack’s third appearance on Lipps Service

On the last episode, Lipps sat down with America’s Got Talent winner Grace Vanderwaal, who spoke about her latest single “Lion’s Den,” how she learned to sing at a young age, her earliest music inspirations and her current creative process. AGT judge Simon Cowell deemed her “the next Taylor Swift,” when she won the singing competition at just 12 years old.
