ROADLOG: END OF TOUR

ROADLOG: END OF TOUR

30 gigs.
43 days out.
9 countries (Germany, Holland, France,
Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia,
Hungary, Serbia).
Untold amount of miles.
It was a long one.
Brutal at times,
Mostly from me being sick
For first half of tour.
After 3 tours in 2016,
(2 Europe, 1 USA),
The band played better than ever.
Each of the guys in the band
Have been true warriors.
It’s easy to talk about
Jumping in a van
And touring for a month or two,
But the actual process of doing it
Is a whole other thing.
You have to be your own daddy
Out here
And avoid a lot of temptation.
Stay focused, sane,
Healthy.
The last four years
Have been a beautiful blur
That I’ve enjoyed the hell out of.
Got to meet so many amazing people & places.
And connect with them.
I’d like to extend a huge thanks
To everyone who got out of the matrix
And came out to the shows.
Also big thanks
To ALL the Brethren,
Past and present,
Who I’ve gigged with.
True warriors and friends.
It’s not easy thing to do,
This indie, DIY shit.
And doing it all over the place
Is sometimes a logistical nightmare.
But it’s totally worth it.
And you never regret,
Even when things go to shit.
So here’s to a killer 2017.
I'm putting time aside
To finish up the CABLOG BOOK,
As well as editing a best of ROADLOGS BOOK
for future release.
We’ll also be working on the new
Brother Dege album
In addition to doing some one-off
And festival shows.
If you feel inspired to do so,
Come on out. Hang.
It's also time for a little break
To rest, reconnect, listen,
And be human.
We don’t take it for granted.
Neither should you.
Cheers.
