Judgement Day Issues New European Tour Report From Dredg Tour

Judgement Day has issued the second report from their European tour with Dredg, with a humorous anecdote as well:

"As soon as we hit Germany, our casual European vacation turned into a full-on, epic rock tour. Dredg are heroes in Germany, and every night we played to over 1000 people. This was definitely the biggest week in Judgement Day’s life so far, and it went incredibly well. For all of the German shows we were also joined by another cool band called The Parlor Mob, from New Jersey. They fit perfectly into the bill with excellent musicianship and a sound vaguely reminiscent of classic Led Zeppelin. They seemed to be excited about our band as well. Their sound engineer Tony liked us so much that he ended up doing our sound for free, which made a huge difference for us.
The Prank

"A few days before our show in Berlin, Dredg got a memo from the Berlin police department saying that they were looking for 'Dradg' for questioning about some 'property damage.' Everyone in the band got really paranoid, so Drew Roulette (bass player) came up with a brilliant prank:

"On the night of the Berlin show, he hired 2 actors to dress up like German police, come on stage in the middle of the set and arrest Gavin and Dino (singer and drummer)! It worked perfectly: Gavin and Dino were scared shitless!

"Drew wanted all of the fans to think that the arrest was real for the first few days, so after the show we posted this video, which cuts off just before the prank is revealed:

Three days later we posted the full, uncut version:

Cutting to the chase, the band also edited some footage together into a music video to sum up the tour:
