If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you heard I’ve gotten a new gig as the new drummer of Fall Out Boy. I can’t tell you how much I wish this were true, but… APRIL FOOLS!
THE REAL STORY: I’m asking you to help me spread the word and find a new band!
All kidding aside, I have been playing drums for 25 years and I’m looking for a new band to rock with. The video above is a drum cover of “Ocean Avenue” that I did for a Yellowcard audition. I have a few others available, and am willing to whip up an audition video upon request.
My name is Dustin Phillips from Minneapolis, MN, and for my entire life all I’ve ever wanted to do is create music. I have been playing drums for 25 years in various groups, most recently pop/rock band ALL THE RIGHT MOVES from Minneapolis. I have national touring experience and thousands of hours logged in the studio. I have no problem playing to click and backing tracks live and believe in providing a solid backbone to the live show. No drugs. No ego.
My main musical influences are Yellowcard, Fall Out Boy, and The 1975, but enjoy all styles. I am looking to join an established band with similar influences.
About a year ago, my good friend Braden and I put out a record under the alias ‘You Jump, i Jump’. It’s a full-length album, titled Reckless with a little bit of everything! I have temporarily set the album to “pay what you want” and would love everyone to go get it!
If you are able to spare a few bucks, I am forever grateful for your support in my music career. If you are unable to, or simply don’t want to support financially, that’s okay too. I would just like to get this album out to everyone who would like it! Please feel free to share it with everyone you know!

For fans of: Jimmy Eat World, The Starting Line, Boys Like Girls, Marianas Trench
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and my music!
To say that I have been busy would be a huge understatement. I have been working hard on several things and I am ecstatic to release a little bit for you — Check out my new drum cover for “In This Diary” by The Ataris! Please SHARE it and help me spread the word!
