Singapore based grindcore act Wormrot is currently embarked on a North American tour. The band has now posted a new tour blog online via Invisible Oranges. An excerpt from the blog follows:

We’ve been playing 10 shows since we’ve arrived in the US. So far things have been great for us. Mike (Tombs) is our Tour Manager or Road Warrior (quoted from Mike, Sunyata Atanamar) and he’s really been cool with making sure the tour goes well and we’re well taken care of. That’s a first time for us!

Let’s start with the show in The Bowery Electric, New York. It was a last minute gig for us. Wormrot is actually not in the lineup but Earache managed to squeeze us in. The promoter was cool to let us play last minute. It was our very first show in the US and it was fucking awesome. We also get to meet the Earache US team in the club and Mike from Sunyata Atanamar blog was there too! We didn’t know Metalsucks staff was there until we read their blog. Great people, great place, great gig! It was a great start of the tour after the 21 hours flight from Singapore!

We played in Now That’s Class in Cleveland, Ohio with Mobile Deathcamp on the next day. The drive from New York to Cleveland was an ass! It wasn’t a full house but crowd was supportive! We met lots of friends and made new friends.

In Gauchos (Valparaiso, Indiana) we played very late. It was around 2am when Wormrot started playing and it was a fucking weekday! Hell yeargh! When we went back to the Chris’s (promoter/Decrypt) place, it was already 3am. Mike was dead tired so he went to sleep in the van coz there were too many people in the house. There were a couple of people who drove 3 hours to see Wormrot so they also stayed over [at] Chris’s house coz it was too late. Chris and his girlfriend cooked some Mexican dish for us. Talk about Asian spice! It was nothing compared to Mexican VOLCANIC spice! Arif lost his voice after taking some vampire sauce. I don’t know what you call them. It was damn bad coz we still have many shows to perform. But even that won’t stop Wormrot from tearing the stage. Arif will burst his throat if he had to!

The show in 31st Street Pub at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania didn’t have a lot of people, either. But still we had a supportive crowd.
