Last show for us was in London tonight. It was a packed house of over 500 people and definitely a bittersweet end to the tour. We said bye to Whirr as we’re staying with friends for the next 2 nights before we get a flight home. The tour has been one of my favorite we’ve done for sure.
Manchester, Glasgow, & Leeds - all actual bangers. Today we’re in Leeds and it’s Ben and Ned’s birthday. Ben requested to play Stay Up/Stay Alive during our set, so he played and I took the mic during Dan’s part and it was a lot of fun. Everyone sand happy birthday to them before the set and kids are a going nuts. Tomorrow is Dead End Path and Whirr’s last show of the tour in London.
Our practice space back home was recently broken into and stolen from. We lost two guitar amps an army bag full of merch and a few guitar pedals. We’re currently on tour in Europe and could use some help financially, as we’re touring the US in the summer as well. We’ve posted shirts in our big…
Birmingham was actually crazy. The show was packed. The path pit was strong. It was a short drive to Manchester today. We got here at 3 and aren’t allowed in the venue until 7:30. We walked around some stores, got some burritos, and now we’re soaking up the wifi in a Starbucks. I feel like a caged animal with the amount of rules in the venues the past two days. I’m from the land of the free and free I shall be, dammit.
Show in Amsterdam was sick yesterday. A lot of kids showed up and the dead heads were strong in the pit. I have a feeling the rest of the shows of the tour will be great as we ride through the UK. Side note: some wild rap concert was going on in the same building as our show last night. The amount of confused people accidentally stumbling into our show was countless. Tonight we’re in Birmingham.
Great day here in Denmark. Got to the venue and ate all the snacks. Had an intense workout with the bros instructed by Foose. While we were working out the other half of the crew went to some hippy town within Copenhagen where they sell weed openly on tables outside. Shout out to Maddog for the pic of Christiania. Some weird band dressed in sailor gear was playing next door, but there was still a good amount of people to show up to our gig. Now we drive through the night to Amsterdam, Holland.
Walked around Oslo, Norway yesterday. It was super gloomy and raining all day which was a perfect setting for the hike we went on. We went to visit The Helvete Shop, what used to be home of the Black Circle is now home to black coffee and donuts. If you’re not familiar with Helvete, check out the Norwegian Black Metal documentary “Until The Light Takes Us” one of the coolest documentaries I’ve seen. The show was alright, during Title Fight’s set, some kid walked on stage to perform his rendition of “Shed” Today we’re in Denmark.
Stockholm, Sweden: beautiful place, great show. Arrived to the venue with a great snack tray including but not limited to hummus and chocolate mousse. Watched Title Fight sound check 2 new bangers, then we went walking around the city to see what Stockholm had to offer. The city was really nice. It was a really good pick me up for the past couple days. Also the venue came through with an incredible meal for dinner. The show was sick and we ended up staying at a college campus, in the student donations room where everyone was trying on the clothes before bed. We’re in Oslo, Norway today, another cool city. I’m hoping tonight’s show will be comparable to yesterday.

So after the show in Hannover we stayed at a band apartment. I got another 40 ounce of the best apple juice Germany has to offer, ate a kebab and returned to the apartment to find whirr writing an R&B hook about a girl they saw in the third story window, which later turned into a full blown rap anthem with some DEP boys thrown in the mix. We didn’t have to leave the apartment yesterday until 3 because it was a travel day for us, so I got another kebab and another apple juice. Returned to the apartment where a full blown wrestling match took place. We left for our ferry to Sweden, it was a 6 hour ferry, we played ninjas out on the deck and I fell asleep on a window will overlooking the front of the ferry. We just arrived to Sweden and met back up with Title Fight. Tonight’s show should be sick.
