Surefire Machine Guitarist Attemps Skydiving Tatoo Again

Following the postponement of Surefire Machine guitarist’s history-making stunt at Edmonton’s Sky Dive Center from July 4th to August 11th - due to uncooperative weather and stolen camera gear - the time has finally come for Zeke to go through with his own version of a Jackass stunt by jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet while getting tattooed.

“The hype surrounding this stunt has been insane and the pressure’s been building,” admits guitarist Zeke. “There’s no backing out now, but I’m completely stoked to see what happens - and to see what’s probably going to be the world’s shakiest tattoo,” he laughs.

As part of SFM’s “Sinnin’ and Grinnin’” tour the tattoo jump, as explained by Zeke, reflects the band’s motto in its entirety: “It's simple - SFM's motto is "Have a Good Time, All the Time" and that's exactly what I'm doing."

Surefire Machine is currently on their third cross-Canadian escapade, perfectly titled the "Sinnin’ & Grinnin’" tour, to promote their self-titled EP.

Surefire Machine "Sinnin’ & Grinnin’" tour dates are as follows, with more dates to be announced:

07-Aug-09 Rimbey, AB The Vault
08-Aug-09 Rimbey, AB The Vault
09-Aug-09 Edmonton, AB Blues On Whyte
