The Boy Will Drown Issues Final Tour Report

British technical death metallers THE BOY WILL DROWN have just completed a headlining tour of Europe. The band played throughout mainland Europe and the UK with support from the likes of FORGETTOFORGIVE and ERADICATION, and are now having a break before heading back out on the road for another European tour in January.

THE BOY WILL DROWN bassist JAMES BATES looks back on the tour:

"It has been almost a month of touring and what an experience it has been - three amazing bands each leg and lots of places."

"29th September - 8th October; It was great touring with the 'Heights' guys to kick start it off with gigs in Edinburgh and Grimsby, which were particularly memorable, encountering our first fan with a TBWD tattoo (photos on our social networking sites). These boys are awesome and will no doubt go on to big things. Writing this email about the start of the tour seems such a long time ago now."

"9th October - 18th October; Touring round mainland Europe to Holland, Italy, Austria and Belgium (with a lil visit to Switzerland in between) was absolutely incredible - the gigs we've done and sights we've seen will never be forgotten. The 'Forgettoforgive' guys are possibly some of the nicest, most dedicated guys we've ever met and having the opportunity to take our good friend Ryan Mason (from Ryan Mason Imaging) to document and help out was a real pleasure. Tour highlights have been uploaded to our Tumblr (http://tbwd.tumblr.com) by Ryan and it's amazing. You should all check it out. More videos and photos will be coming from him soon." More...

The Boy Will Drown Checks In From The Road

British technical death metallers The Boy Will Drown are currently on the road in Europe and have completed the second leg of their headlining European tour. The band has checked in from the road with the following update:

"We've had an amazing time with ForgetToForgive and we all left as good friends! They're an amazing band and amazing people so we certainly recommend people check 'em out. Great shows were played and more awesome sights were seen. Waking up to the sunny view of the Swiss Alps is something none of us, I think, will ever forget. Makes all the problems we've experienced on tour seem insignificant.

"We also say bye to our good mate Ryan Mason; we got some awesome footage, photos and good times! Currently being edited so updates will be available and floating about soon. It was an absolute pleasure to have him onboard and we'll hopefully be seeing him on future tours soon for more of his 'Painting & Decorating' skills! After a few days rest at home, we're now on the final leg of the tour, this time with Eradication. A few changes have been made to the schedule." More...

The Boy Will Drown Gives Tour Update

Brit tech-death band, The Boy Will Drown, is currently on a headlining tour through Europe and has posted an update from the road.

"Level 1 complete! We've played some wicked shows up and down the UK from London to Edinburgh and met some awesome and memorable people. Grimsby in particular was perhaps one of the most surreal experiences when we met someone who had the TBWD 'Fetish' album artwork tattooed on his upper arm (viewable on our Tumblr page) which gave us very much a proud feeling.

"In addition, The Boy Will Drown are pleased to announce that Ryan Mason (www.ryanmasonimaging.com) will be joining the band on tour around Europe over the next ten days. Ryan, a freelance professional photographer based in Norwich, will be documenting the tour with video and photo footage, as well as being the band's bitch by providing the band with other 'services'! The 24-year old, who has recently worked with the likes of Paramore, Cancer Bats and photographed at both Download and Reading festivals, thought the next best step to further his career would clearly be to document The Boy Will Drown on tour!"

The Boy Will Drown Cancels First Shows Of Tour

British act The Boy Will Drown has been forced to cancel the first few shows of the band's upcoming European tour. The band will now kick off the tour on September 30th at the Purple Turtle in London. The Boy Will Drown drummer Ed discusses the band's recent activities and the upcoming tour:

"Unfortunately we've had to cancel the start of our tour due to lack of money. Our earnings were drastically cut and we couldn't afford to do it, what with the renting of a van etc. So our tour is kicking off with Wreck Of The Minotaur in London on September 30th! Liam has been, and still is, on holiday at the moment, so the rest of us have been practicing at home and trying to get ourselves ready for our longest tour to date. I think we're all gonna be spending some of our earnings on new/more equipment. I know I'm looking forward to playing on non-broken cymbals!

"A week going up and down the country with The Bridal Procession should be ace, we're all really looking forward to playing with those guys and Heights. Galleons are on a few of the shows as well, and we've got some more tours lined up with them for next year already. I've been chatting to a few of them and they seem safe boys. Heavy drinkers and smokers by all accounts, so I suppose we'll have to be out partying every night... Oh it's a hard life ain't it, haha. More...

The Boy Will Drown Issues European Tour Report

British technical death metal virtuosos THE BOY WILL DROWN have just come off the road after playing a short string of dates in Germany, the band's first shows outside of the UK.

The band reports on their first venture into mainland Europe:

"First time TBWD has been on a ferry and across the pond. We were excited and looking forward to the prospect of playing shows where we wouldn't have a clue what people were saying and seeing rather amusing place and road signs such as 'Wankum' lol. But so far it has been such a blast and the album material has gone down so well with the fans; also people are looking rather rad in the new tee. Surprising how late the shows start in Europe. Didn't manage to get onstage in Gent till almost midnight! But the diehard fans stayed till the very end and it was an awesome show!"

"What have we been up to during the day? Well... The daily activities mainly include enjoying the great weather, bit of sightseeing being total tourists, driving on the wrong side of the road (sooooo weird) then doing the gigs! Can't be bad I reckon. All planning to get our tan on ;) but having to pay to use the service station toilets is fucking Mack." More...
