Fatality Checks In With New "Towards DisasTour" Road Report

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

Vocalist Spencer Le Von checks in again, this time telling us all about reuniting with California’s Zombie Holocaust. Excerpts are available below, or you can check out the full road report via Dead Rhetoric here.

"After our gig in Pensacola, we had a good long drive ahead of us. We were to drive into Houston and pick up our friends in ZH [Zombie Holocaust] the following morning around 11AM because they were to join us in our tour van and play gigs with us for the next 3 weeks (that’s right, 10 dudes in an 11 seat van). They were taking a two day bus ride from sunny California to Texas and that meant in order to meet them at the Greyhound station, we would have to drive all night long to prepare for our gig at the White Swan. We fueled up with some pancakes and hit the Florida highway at around 4AM.

"Night drives are absolutely horrendous and I hate them like I hate being stabbed in the ass with the butt-end of a goalie stick. First of all, it is very uncomfortable to drive while you are tired but it’s also near impossible to get any rest in the bench seats while the tour van cascades towards its destination in the dead of night. So you are damned either way. We made it into town and illegally parked in a lot next to the Houston Greyhound station and waited in red-eyed anticipation in the mid-afternoon sun for our California rock star buddies to pull into town.

"I was relieved when they arrived and looked even worse than we did. They had a dreadful and uncomfortable 48 hours in a bus, all with different sets of stories including almost getting kicked off mid trip with all of their gear on the side of the road. Even though we hadn’t seen each other in 2 years, everyone was dead tired and a little dazed from exhaustion. We went for burritos and blinked at each other in restive stillness for 3 or 4 hours until we were set to play. Despite the mutual fatigue, we both played crushing sets to an enthusiastic crowd of young headbangers. The crowd was so rowdy that a fight even broke out during one of the sets."
