Singapore based metallers Wormrot have posted another tour blog online via InvisibleOranges.com. An excerpt from the blog follows.

Things have been a bit rough lately. The drive from Denver to Albuquerque, New Mexico was around 8 – 9 hours. Upon reaching there, we had some burritos for a late lunch. It was a nice change of appetite coz we’ve been having pizzas almost everyday. Don’t get me wrong, pizzas are good, but everyday you kind of feel quite sick of it. Hehe… Anyway, the gig wasn’t as massive as the one in Denver. Turnout wasn’t as big as the place, but it was OK, I guess. The good thing is, some of the band members from Noisear came down for the gig. Was great to meet them. One of them played in a side band called The Laughing Dog. Man, they really kill!! Brutal band!!! It was an honor to meet some of the boys from Noisear and share the stage with The Laughing Dog. And guess what we had for dinner… Pizzas.

The next morning, we left the place at around 8:30am. Had our usual snappy Starbucks coffee with breakfast from Arby’s and head off to Oklahoma City for a gig at The Conservatory. Another long ass drive! What was supposed to be a 10 hours drive became 12 hours due to some complications on the highway in Amarillo, Texas. For the 1st time in our lives, we experienced real flood!!! The flood was so bad that some cars were covered in water. That totally sucks big time, man! We were damn lucky not to get stuck in the flood coz all the Wormrot boys can’t swim, for goodness sake!! Traffic was slow coz they had to block some parts of the road. And so we arrived late while the 1st band was playing. No bullshit, just load in and fucking play! Another small turnout for us considering the size of the place. LOL… But it was a fun gig. Sound system was good and the crowd was crazy, too. There was no place for us to sleep that night. so Mike had to drive to a hotel so that we can all have our beauty sleep. Oh yeah, the promoter did get us some food though. Pizzas.

This morning, we had another early start at 8:30am, coz it is another 8 hours drive. Breakfasts at Denny’s were big portions. We had 1 free meal coz of birthday special. Saved $6, y’all!! And now, we’re on the way to San Antonio, Texas to share the stage with Phobia and PLF!! Stoked as fuck, let’s fucking go!

Let’s start with the gig at San Antonio, Texas on 17 Sep. It was another long drive from Oklahoma City. Around 9 hours plus, coz we do need some breaks to eat and shit, ya know. When we reached there, the place was kinda hard to find. It’s not a club, just a small, old-looking place with a bar, a small stage, and some space for people going for the show. It was raining, and we were excited to see Phobia and PLF so we quickly got off the van, locked it, and guess what happen…? Mike accidentally locked the door with the key still in the van!! LOL… It was really funny, coz he was always very careful, but we don’t blame him at all. He’s very tired from lack of sleep and many hours of long drives. Lucky for us, he had insurance for the car, so he called up the company, and the key was retrieved in 40 mins free of charge. Anyway, the gig was massive with grinders going crazy and moshing. Considering the fact that the place was so small, they managed to do just that and support every single band that played that night. It was a great and tiring night for us. Phobia and PLF… Hats off to them!!!!!
