AC/DC said it first and said it best: "It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll." But not even Angus Young in his hardest rocking dreams could conjure the wild trials that forged We As Human into a band playing for keeps. Lead singer Justin Cordle can regale you with true tales of band members Jake Jones, Justin Forshaw, Adam Osborne and Dave Draggoo quitting jobs and hitting the road, without a single paying gig ahead of them. He can talk about how far a place like Sandpoint, Idaho seems from the bright lights of rockÊ¼s most celebrated stages. But he can't discuss We As Human's megawatt-bright future without props to those whoÊ¼ve helped the band hit its privileged perch. And that starts with Skillet, the band that discovered them.
