We’re going on tour! This is going to be Black Diamond Express Train to Hell’s (and my) first full-length tour, and I for one am excited. Touring is fun. Except when it’s uncomfortable and annoying. But that’s more the exception than the rule. The rule is you show up in a new city every afternoon, get fed, sing some songs, are given beer, meet a lot of new people, are told a lot of really nice things by some of those people, and then you’re led off to a comfortable place to sleep. And when you wake up someone makes you breakfast. Fuck yeah, DIY touring in Germany (and Holland), fuck yeah. It’s a pretty sweet way to travel, even if you never really do get to know the cities that you’re in.
There are some blog posts scheduled for my absence, so you won’t be lacking for reading fodder. But if I’m coming round your way and you’d like to exchange words in color and sound, come on by and say hello. Here’s where you can find us:
