Imminent Sonic Destruction is hitting the road with Pain of Salvation, and the band has now checked in with the following road report:

"Well well well... Here we are, in Virginia. We had a couple days before we had to play, so it's all about relaxing and driving, while we had the chance. Both of which are very nice. Beautiful scenery, and being able to stop for a band cookout was great. I have to say, the people we've run into at these truck stops so far have been very nice. Southern hospitality is alive and well, I'm happy to report. Dental hygiene, however, is apparently on life support. But I digress.

"When we stopped to fix our flat tire, a truck stop employee (Timothy, who sounded EXACTLY like Gomer Pyle) treated us very well, and creeped us out at the same time. Once we got up, had an authentic down home breakfast at Waffle House (had to do it once... Seriously. ONCE), and got back on the road, we were feeling much better. The sun was back out, and the drive was beautiful. We headed for a rest stop to set up and enjoy the aforementioned cookout, and it was then that I realized we are having a pretty damn awesome time. This isn't bad. The sleeping arrangements and showers are sketchy, but still... TOUR.

"So, night off. That means a Team America viewing and a large amount of alcohol. Lets see, what else... We stopped at a Guitar Center for a drum head, took video of a crazy meth head bird lady dancing to music that no one else could hear, killed a homeless guy, officially accepted Clay as a member of the ISD family with an elaborate blood ritual, listened to some Joe Jackson, watched some Tenacious D, you know, the standard road trip checklist.

"Tonight we get on with the serious part of the tour. Meet up with Pain of Salvation and Brian, the tour manager, get in the groove and start disassembling the world with our music, a little bit at a time. More tomorrow after the first show!"
