The On Tour Episode
The on Tour Episode
if you've wanted to know what it feels like to go on tour with a band on a budget...this episode is for you..
This episode was good fun, chatting about the good old days. We had some of our best times in the back of a van in the darkness. It is always how we describe being in a band...
"spent our 20's sitting in the back of a van going to places we never would have gone to before" an that basically sums it up.
Life on tour is weird. You spend 23 hours a day with the same 6 or so people to do about an hours work. life is spent either in a tired haze, drunk, or totally focused.
Metal health struggles were real when you would finish a tour, and adjust back to normal reality. It was a really difficult period each time, and it must be really tough for bands that are away for years at a time. Difficult to keep family relationships and manage those relationships.
