Singapore based metallers Wormrot have posted another tour blog online via InvisibleOranges.com. An excerpt from the blog follows.
Things have been a bit rough lately. The drive from Denver to Albuquerque, New Mexico was around 8 – 9 hours. Upon reaching there, we had some burritos for a late lunch. It was a nice change of appetite coz we’ve been having pizzas almost everyday. Don’t get me wrong, pizzas are good, but everyday you kind of feel quite sick of it. Hehe… Anyway, the gig wasn’t as massive as the one in Denver. Turnout wasn’t as big as the place, but it was OK, I guess. The good thing is, some of the band members from Noisear came down for the gig. Was great to meet them. One of them played in a side band called The Laughing Dog. Man, they really kill!! Brutal band!!! It was an honor to meet some of the boys from Noisear and share the stage with The Laughing Dog. And guess what we had for dinner… Pizzas.
The next morning, we left the place at around 8:30am. Had our usual snappy Starbucks coffee with breakfast from Arby’s and head off to Oklahoma City for a gig at The Conservatory. Another long ass drive! What was supposed to be a 10 hours drive became 12 hours due to some complications on the highway in Amarillo, Texas. For the 1st time in our lives, we experienced real flood!!! The flood was so bad that some cars were covered in water. That totally sucks big time, man! We were damn lucky not to get stuck in the flood coz all the Wormrot boys can’t swim, for goodness sake!! Traffic was slow coz they had to block some parts of the road. And so we arrived late while the 1st band was playing. No bullshit, just load in and fucking play! Another small turnout for us considering the size of the place. LOL… But it was a fun gig. Sound system was good and the crowd was crazy, too. There was no place for us to sleep that night. so Mike had to drive to a hotel so that we can all have our beauty sleep. Oh yeah, the promoter did get us some food though. Pizzas.
This morning, we had another early start at 8:30am, coz it is another 8 hours drive. Breakfasts at Denny’s were big portions. We had 1 free meal coz of birthday special. Saved $6, y’all!! And now, we’re on the way to San Antonio, Texas to share the stage with Phobia and PLF!! Stoked as fuck, let’s fucking go!More...
Singapore based grindcore act Wormrot is currently embarked on a North American tour. The band has now posted a new tour blog online via Invisible Oranges. An excerpt from the blog follows:
We’ve been playing 10 shows since we’ve arrived in the US. So far things have been great for us. Mike (Tombs) is our Tour Manager or Road Warrior (quoted from Mike, Sunyata Atanamar) and he’s really been cool with making sure the tour goes well and we’re well taken care of. That’s a first time for us!
Let’s start with the show in The Bowery Electric, New York. It was a last minute gig for us. Wormrot is actually not in the lineup but Earache managed to squeeze us in. The promoter was cool to let us play last minute. It was our very first show in the US and it was fucking awesome. We also get to meet the Earache US team in the club and Mike from Sunyata Atanamar blog was there too! We didn’t know Metalsucks staff was there until we read their blog. Great people, great place, great gig! It was a great start of the tour after the 21 hours flight from Singapore!
We played in Now That’s Class in Cleveland, Ohio with Mobile Deathcamp on the next day. The drive from New York to Cleveland was an ass! It wasn’t a full house but crowd was supportive! We met lots of friends and made new friends.More...
