Imminent Sonic Destruction Posts New Tour Diary

Imminent Sonic Destruction is currently in the midst of the band's first ever North American tour with Pain of Salvation and Kingcrow. An additional show featuring ISD and Pain of Salvation only has been added for May 3rd in Pittsburgh, PA at Dead Horse Cantina.

Full details on the run are available after the jump. The band has also now checked in with the following road report:

"You've been clamoring for this, even if you don't realize it. Trust me. So here you go!
This will be the longest one, being the inaugural post. We have a few things to cover, class, so I'm going to get right to it. Grab a beer (or a beer, we're not giving you options here) and get comfy. First show, Atlanta GA at the Masquerade. VERY cool place. Used to be an old mill, more character in that place than a Tolkien novel.

"So anyway, Scott (guitars, prescriptions) had to fly down and meet us in Atlanta for the first show. He had a work commitment that he couldn't get out of, and he's a fucking diva, so we were happy to meet up with him and get this tour going OFFICIALLY.

"Maybe you didn't know this, but apparently April 28th is monsoon season in Atlanta. Look it up. The crew at the Masquerade was great, helped us load in and we all got completely soaked. It was hard to be upset about that, however. The reason? WE ARE ON TOUR. You may have missed that part. Oh yeah, one of the crew guys (Nick) was from Flint, so that was cool. Super helpful, great guys at the Masquerade.

"So, on to the good stuff. Finally got to meet our Italian tourmates Kingcrow, holy SHIT what a good band. Check them out NOW. Do it. Well, do it after reading this. Great guys, brought us a bottle of chianti from Tuscany! Come on! How can you not love these guys? Also played with two really talented local bands, Halcyon Way and Void of Reason. Good dudes. Met Lane Miller, official ISD Superfan, Southeast Division. Nothing like having someone up front belting out the lyrics to your songs! I think it helped Tony, so that's a plus as well. We had some technical issues, scheduling snafus, etc. but that's life on the road, Cage. Life on the road...

"With all the things that went wrong, we still had a good show. Made some new fans, sold some merch. Which reminds me, our merch guy for the tour, Clay, is possibly the coolest MF in the lower 48. We're giving him a ride to the next show where he's supposed to hook up with Pain of Salvation, but we may try to keep him. He doesn't eat much, and he hardly sheds at all.

"So, we packed up the trailer, headed out of town to find a truck stop to park for the night. That's when we noticed that we had a SHREDDED tire on the trailer. Yeah. I don't think the Star Wars action figures necessarily were behind it, but it's hard to say. They're too quiet, I don't trust them. This is really shaping up to be an eventful start to the tour, wouldn't you say? Well, wouldn't you? Answer me! Oh, sorry. Well, I think you're up to date now. Tire fixed, back on the road. Today is a travel day, so we're going to make some progress, stop and grill some food, and probably get superdrunk (Riley Sheahan style, minus the Teletubby costume, or not, TBD) and crash for the night. You can be jealous, we don't mind. I'm going to close this first INSANELY long post by thanking Milton and Intromental for giving us this shot, because we would not be on tour (ON TOUR!!!) without him offering us this opportunity. Thanks man! Ok, that's it for now. We'll have more, far more brief posts in the coming days. Feel free to ask questions about life on the F'ING ROAD and we'll answer the ones that we feel like answering. The rest will be catalogued and filed appropriately. So long for now, from somewhere on I-85 in South Carolina!"
