Ensiferum bassist Sami Hinkka has checked in with this latest road report:

"Damn I'm angry (with) myself, I was sleeping while we drove to San Francisco and I missed Alcatraz prison.

"We cant get our travel guitars to stay in tune. Damn. We change strings tomorrow and hopefully that will do the trick.

"Today's stage was very small, and we had to put drums behind me so I didn't have room to move at all. Gig was awesome! Special thanks to front row singers! Hottest show so far and of course there is no shower.

"During our gig it started to rain. C'mon! Rain in California?"

That was enlightening. I'm sure you run into little problems here and there, but there's nothing positive to report? Great lineup; there's something.

Figures. No IA dates. MN and IL, but no IA.
