Misery Index has posted the following new tour blog on Demockery.org about the band's current European tour:
"Today we are back in the land of overcast, misty cold mountains- more resembling Mordor than 'der Schweitz.' Reflecting back on our Italian weekend, a few highlights come to mind…First on Friday we played this youth center in Bruneck, Italy, a town on the border with Austria, and fully German speaking. I wandered that afternoon up the mountain overlooking the village, and came across a winding trail that was straight out of Entombed’s 'Left hand Path' album cover -yet it was daytime and far less eerie. Around a bend there unfolded a German soldier’s cemetery from the First and Second World Wars. It was in immaculate condition, and the wood-carved grave markers were in absolute perfect upkeep….
"The second highlight was the chance to have the entire day to wander around Rome. The entire tour package followed our adventurous tour manager/tour guide Jay around all the sights, on a brilliant day that could not have been anymore perfect. Sitting here in Switzerland we yearn for the south once more, and are to be rewarded with a trio of days in Spain, starting with our favorite town Barcelona on Wednesday…any ghosts in Catalonia want to come out?"
