New Jersey death metal band The Binary Code has posted part one of a tour recap of their first national tour with Revocation & Hypno5e on MySpace. Read an except below:

"So, we just returned home from our first National United States tour w/ Revocation & Hypno5e! We had our final show Sunday night in Allston (Boston), MA @ Unit 11 w/ Sexcrement & Tone Locs' (Anthony of Revocation) band Living Void. I just wanted to point out that the Unit 11 show was by far one of the best & most fun shows this band has EVER played in 6 years. I think the country's music scene could learn a thing or two from the scene in Allston, MA."

"As you all know, we started our first date in Brooklyn, NY. That show was an unbelievable kick off to a fun tour. Morale was up, the fun was in our eyes, and we were off to tour the country. After playing an awesome show at the Croc Rock in Allentown, PA, we decided to take a part of the drive that night after the show to head towards the next venue in Buffalo, NY. We stopped about 2 hours in (being we were exhausted beyond belief), and hung out in the van at a hotel parking lot until 6am or so. Brett & Todd drank 40s, we all laughed, farted, pissed in cups, listened to Howard Stern, and had a good time."

"That morning, we woke up shortly after our 2 hour siesta to continue our trek towards Buffalo, NY. Weather conditions were moderate: slushy snow substances matted the floors of the roads, light flakes of snow softly dabbed the land; the roads were pretty clear. Cruising a solid 55MPH on a two lane highway road alongside a slope entertaining a frozen river, we neared a bend that forewarned the beginning of a long day."

"Upon executing the bend of the road near perfectly at a proper speed and candor, a geriatric driver presented the idea of passing us from the left, onto right. We maintained a steady 55MPH, ever so gently puttering up the 3% grade hill. Whilst driving the mini-mountain, we were listening to Henry Rollins belting out a calm, ‘COS I'M A LIAR, I'LL BURN YOUR SOUL’ (the Rollins Band, ‘Liar’), churned out by my laptop nestled on our food bin between the driver and passenger seat (Brett > laptop < Todd)."

"So the elderly man operating his vehicle with intent to surpass our course of driving accelerated to a good 75MPH around a bend, up a slight hill (about half a mile long), in moderately dangerous weather conditions one might think to drive more cautiously in. As he made haste and ‘tiptoed’ into our lane in front of us (again, traveling at 75MPH), he spun out in the side-ravine. Now, most people would think back to basic drivers education when this kind of behavior occurs: I'm spinning out, don't press down on the gas, control the wheel. This man decided to break the rules! What a maverick move! SIKE!!! Mu'fucka drove in accordance to the opposite of non-hazardous play behind a wheel, and sling-shot whipped right into the passenger side double door entrance/exit of our van! HARD!"

"Said collision projected our van FORWARD and sideways (UP A HILL!) into a guardrail in the middle ravine, in which we did a nose-grind for about 30 feet (UP A HILL!!!). Our vehicle presumed the three-wheel-motion up top of the guard rail, like a newborn NHL hockey player smashed up against his teams players bench by Zdeno Chara of the Ottawa Senators."

"Fluids ran sleekly into the frosted snow beneath our suspended-by-guardrail vehicle. A blunt, ‘GET OUT OF THE VAN, NOW!’ came bursting from the largest tones provided by myself and one Brett Bamberger (both, already exited from said van accident). We jaunted 30 yards away from the van towards the provider of the accident. As soon as we saw the short, elderly man, we asked, ‘Are you alright, sir?’"

"Shortly after, a PA State Trooper stopped by to mediate the situation, and make our lives easier by telling us to stay where we are (making it impossible to obtain insurance & contact information from the old man whom potentially ruined the tour for us, 2 days in). After we were all escorted to the tow company, located in Mansfield, PA, the accident finally kicked in. ‘WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?!’ ‘That's all folks!’ ‘Can this thing be fixed?’"
