Back from Tour

Ok...So i am back from tour....Everything that could have went wrong did go wrong....Il let you all in on that in a sec but for now ....Let me set you up.... The Rebs and Interrogate our friends from Northern Ireland were going on a little 2 week loop through OH,K.Y, N.C,N.J,NYC....Phillie and Richmond i wont even get into....Our van had been making this weird knockin noise for a little while now...We had it checked out before we left by a friend who said that the lower part of our motor had to be replaced.... (After draining most of the band's money on ball joints and breaks) We decided to say fuck it and "rock it till the wheels fall off"lol (We didnt think the wheels were comin off that night) So like the bunch of super smart and rich guys that we are ....We leave with the van the way it was....So first night...We are playing the infamous and allways beautiful Geneva ,Ohio....After hours of debating our options in the parking lot of "The Cove"(venu we were playing that night )We decided to send the van back home to Syracuse where it could be fixed by a friend.....So Trandon our manager and Eric our bassist drive the van back as far as it would go...Mind you the motor was so bad..You could put the pedal to the floor and it would make its way to 60 mph in id say like 10 min...Maybe thats a bit to much but you get what im saying ...Next ...THE BREAKDOWN which took place in Geneva NY... Crazy i know....The tow guy picked Tran and Eric up from the middle of no where and dropped them off in the middle of no where cuz he "couldnt drive to Syracuse" What is this guy thinking ?....Ok ...So they get the van back and eventually meet up with us in Columbus OH( What a gig) il leave it at that....Cinnci was amazing till mine and Eric's acoustic bass were stolen shortly after that show...We gottem back though the next morning which is kinda crazy...Actualy whats even more crazy is the "kids" that stole our guitars and Trandon's Jafaican Hat ,stole a Jeep as well...Wrecked it on a high speed pursuit with the cops....They survived and so did the guitars..Wish i could say the same for the Jeep...Kinda crazy...Oh yea almost forgot about riding in the back of a Uhaul on like a 100 degree day...Sleeping in the Uhaul in a Wally World parking lot...Cooking 3 day old hambugers which were stored in barely cold enough cooler water in the Wally World parking lot @ 4:00in the morning oh yes ...You all heard of the Sanfransico treat...Well thats the Cinncinati treat...NYC was great as allways ...Gotta love them parking tickets...230 dollars worth in no less then an hour of being there...Along with the new wave English bands with there alligator shoes and jeans smaller then my sister's...7 dollar beers and 10 dollar slices of pizza.....NYC IM OUT!!!!!.......Theres def more but i think that covers enough for now....Sorry it takes me forever to blog...Been straped with the new record and tour but ....The record is out the tour is over ...Well this one ....We have one coming up starting Monday with our friends from Truman Highway (Boston Mass)...So il keep trying my best to get back to you guys sooner ....Hope you liked the story ....It was def all worth it and alot of fun... and for sure was Rock N Roll... I wanna give a shout out real quick and thank you here to our Irish brothers Interrogate ...We couldnt have finished with out you guys.....Keep rockin everyone and stay safe ] : )

I wont delete EVERYTHING i wrote again ....Only a few weeks left (take 2)

So its back to practice here for the Rebs with only a few weeks left till we record this monsterous pain in the ass peice of what we hope to call music...Were directing our focus now on the finer details of these songs and are now looking to tighten down any remaining loose ends ...Im really happy with how everything is coming along so far...While on this subject ...I would also like to send a couple Thank You's to our good friends Brett Walts and the all mighty Joco for choosing to work with us on this project..."For those who live on Mars" ...They are the BEST audio engineers in the game around these parts today....Next i wanna mention that we do have Maylene tix for sale ...YES..We our opening for Maylene and the Sons of Disaster in Rochester @ the Montage Music Hall May 17th it should be a FUCKING phenomonal show ...So if anyone needs any tickets get ahold of me or any one of the guys in the band here on Reverb or on the book of Face's...They are only 10 bucks and I think we only have like 15 or 20 left so hit me up FAST... Finally, This Friday I will be playing a solo acoustic show @ Edge Water grill located on 2 Oswego St in Bville.. There is no cover charge and plenty of drink specials all night so stop out and have a couple dozen ...Well thats it for now everyone ...Sports center is coming on,I smell like a foot and need a shower ...Talk to you all next week sometime ...Gary
