Mantic Ritual Offers Tour Update

Jeff Potts, guitarist for the Pittsburgh metal band MANTIC RITUAL has sent in the following tour update:

“For those of you who don't hablo español – ‘No Jeff, it's 'habla'’ - ... Thanks Adam. For those of you who don't habla español, the title of this blog roughly translates to ‘Pro-Pain/Sworn Enemy Tour update number one.’

“With that out of the way, let us bring you up to speed. We spent the last ten days in the southeastern part of the U.S. and we just finished the show in Baltimore. We've had a lot of fun so far and made plenty of new friends and fans. Being back in the van, rather than on the bus like on the last tour, gives us plenty of opportunities to get to know the fine folks who come out to our shows and offer us a place to stay for the night (*hint, hint* to the people coming out to the rest of the shows on this tour). Possibly the most interesting place we've stayed so far was on a military base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Let's hear it for 3-year-olds that rock out and air-guitar to an entire Iron Maiden DVD - good times.

“Just letting everyone know: Much like the tickets at Waynestock, there are still plenty of dates left on this tour. We hope to see you at the shows and party at your house. Remember, in the words of Jim Morrison – ‘If you book us, we will come.’

“Until then, ‘Party on, Adam!’
“‘Party on, Jeff!’”

Why tour with Pro-Pain?...it makes the show less interesting. Anyways, these dudes are really cool to talk to in person. I hung out with Dan and Adam out front before a show a few months ago and they were telling me about odd road stories they experienced with Exodus and Destruction. Ahh what a glorious night that was.

It'd be great to have them party at my house. I don't think I have enough beer though. I can imagine being on the road with bands like Exodus and Destruction, you'd have to have some pretty crazy stories.

Now playing: Mantic Ritual - "Black Tar Sin"
