Fatality Checks In From The "Towards Disastour" With New Road Report

Toronto’s thrash party monsters Fatality are currently on a two-month North American “Towards Disastour” in support of latest album, "Psychonaut."

Now vocalist Spencer Le Von checks in from the road to share Fatality's debauchery and mayhem filled nights in Florida. Excerpts from the road report are available below, or you can read the full report at DeadRhetoric.com.

On this tour we played a handful of dates in Florida, but the one town that stands out in my mind is when we spent a couple days and debauchery-soaked nights living within the depths of chaos and depravity in a bar called the 321 Local in Cocoa Beach. It all started when we pulled into town the night before our gig. We had nothing to do, and nowhere to go. So we decided to go to the venue we were going to play the following night and start our night that way. To kick things off, we had ourselves a tailgate party complete with beer, BBQ grilling and George Thorogood cranking on the stereo in the parking lot of a Baptist church around the corner.

We went in to check out the bar and met the owner Kevin and the booker David. We had nowhere to sleep and couldn’t afford a hotel, so the owner of the club offered for us to just party all night long and fall asleep on the floor of the bar. We heartily obliged. The next few hours are a blur of air drumming and table dancing until late the following morning.

I found a hot piece of floor beside the pool table and time traveled to the early afternoon the following day. The hot Florida climate has a way of just drying you out. Nothing makes you feel like less of a winner then waking up next to a bar-sports apparatus with pool chalk in your hair, feeling dry as a wine cork. I was so dry that I pissed sand. I was so dry, only British people thought I was funny. I was so dry, I found a bunch of camels traversing my beer gut. Oh, if only I had the foresight to grab myself some morning water and rest it beside my soon-to-be unconscious body lovingly. That’s a real treat isn’t it? When you awake from a late night of liquored-up lunacy only to find that drunk you left hung over you a chilled Snapple or a 2-liter Fresca? If you can find someone that does that for you, you marry that person and impregnate them immediately to pass on that trait to future generations.
