We've been kicked off our bus by a nutcase driver, So we packed up and squeezed into a rental van. The lack of real sleep and real comfort is totally worth it, compared to being on the bus with those lunatics.
When there are 60 bands a day, and a majority of them are made up of either Christian jocks that play REALLY HEAVY MUSIC for jesus, or pop bands with the only thing separating them from boy bands like Backstreet Boys are their de tuned guitars hanging from their shoulders, it's hard to be comfortable. I walk around at night sometimes after the shows. Back by the busses. BBQ in full effect. I look around, and quickly realize that the only difference between this and a huge frat party is that all these idiots play music. Bad music. Unfuckinglistenable music.
Don't get me wrong. It's not all bad. There are some absolutely amazing people out here, and some incredible bands. Don't get me wrong. It's not all bad. There are some absolutely amazing people out here, and some incredible bands. We'll get by. We're learning as we go, and admittedly it has been a dream to do this tour since i was 15. It's beautiful out, and I'd rather be doing this everyday than delivering pizzas. We know we're lucky.
The band recently released a split with Teenage Bottlerocket.
