The Early November, The Wonder Years, The Swellers, Young Statues, and crew. One of the greatest tours I’ve been a part of. It’s rare that every band is on the same page and gets along so well. I became a big fan of every one of them as musicians and as people. This is CRAZY for me to say. I’m usually that guy who hates everyone and wants to just do my thing. This may have restored my faith (the good kind, based on evidence) in people in this business because they don’t seem to treat it as a business.
I even stayed out late at a BAR with all of these people. Normally standing around a wooden table for 4 hours at a time is not my idea of fun (it’s usually easier for someone growing increasingly intoxicated to find this monotony enjoyable). Thing is, when you put a lot of dudes who aren’t afraid to hug each other in a room with Pantera and The Misfits blasting.. I guess it ain’t so bad.
I’ll miss this tour, but I don’t think it’s the last time we’ll play with these guys. The rock and roll jam session was awesome. It really whupped a mule’s behind wif a belt.
P.S. this is only the beginning of me using Tumblr again. More anger and excitement to come!
