Europe. AGAIN.

So the last time I wrote on here we were in Amersfoort which turned out to be a pretty strange show. As I predicted it was empty as fuck, but everyone that was there was awesome! We had a the best best wall of death with the smallest amount of people ever which ruled! So thank you to you guys who came along and made a potentially shit show into an awesome show.
We got bottle of Southern Comfort on the rider and I decided to screw weed and just get fucked up with Sam and our merch guy Lloyd. I haven't hit the SC very hard recently and I probably misjudged my limits which resulted in me violently vomitting a bunch of times and trying to hang out in a bar with no shoes on. Needless to say I felt like hell in the morning.
The next day we were in Ham in Belgium which turned out to be an all day thing that we were headlining. We were there for ages and it was fucking hot was we went swimming in a river which our driver convinced us would give us a deadly illness. It didn't, although Tom cut his toe and bleed a bunch, nothing exciting.
The show was pretty cool, we had a really good time and we ended up doing an encore for the first time on the tour. We've had requests for encores pretty much every night of the tour but we've never known what to play so we usually end up going 'Uh, I dunno?!'.
We woke up late the next morning because it was the shortest drive ever, so we hung around until about 4.30 until we decied to leave, but for some reason we couldn't find the keys for the van anywhere. We emptied all our bags and turned the house upside down but we literally couldn't find the keys ANYWHERE. We phoned the breakdown people and they said they were gonna be ages and we didn't want them to arrive and then just break a window. So Tom broke the window. With a hammer. It was mental. What we didnt realise was that the alarm would go off FOREVER after we smashed it. So we had to wait for the breakdown people and it turned out they could have gotten into the van without smashing it. Great.
The show in Gent ruled though! The venue was the smallest dirtiest piece of crap ever but the show was awesome as fuck so it made all the stress of the day worth while. Thank you to anyone who came down and made that show so awesome! We appriciate it more than you know!

Today was boring as fuck, all we did was drive so I'm not gonna bore you with details!

All our US dates went up today, its mental! Gonna be good times!

haha you don't know what to play for encore?!

just play any other song. doesn't really matter! it'd be sick if you'd play things that you wouldn't normally play.. i dunno what is since i've never seen you guys...

but if you came back for an encore and then played "low" or something like that... it'd be HELLA awesome said... as Read more about Green eco architectural designs are reusable materials, green designs etc.. ..… Create an Eco friendly Green design… Save Earth.." as of natural materials with almost modern concepts using A few quick ways to reduce your personal carbon footprint: employ eco-friendly methods of travel, eat, minimize use of plastic products and save electricity, water, paper and use of non-toxic alternatives Carbon Footprint is a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of the amount of greenhouse gases produced, measured ternds
