ALASKAN TOUR 2K9

DATELINE: JANUARY 2009. DEEP IN THE HEART OF AN UNFORGIVING ALASKAN WINTER I TOUCH DOWN IN ANCHORAGE TO PLAY A BUNCH OF SHOWS AND BRING SOME THUNDER TO THE DARKNESS. WHAT CAME NEXT MAN I’LL NEVER FORGET!

I MET A BUNCH OF KIDS WITH A LOT OF HEART AND RAGED SOME SERIOUSLY WEIRD AND AMAZING SHOWS. I PLAYED A GENERATOR PARTY IN A LOG CABIN OUTSIDE OF FAIRBANKS THAT MY CREW ENDED UP GETTING KICKED OUT OF. I PLAYED AT A DINER IN A SKI RESORT TOWN. I PLAYED A RAP SHOW IN THE HOME OF SARAH PALIN – WASILLA. THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT AT THE TIME I WAS IN A FUCKED UP ZONE IN MY LIFE AND IT SHOWED BUT I THINK THAT JUST PUSHED THE INTENSITY INTO THE RED.

IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE IN THIS MUSIC SHIT YOU WILL TAKE IT AS FAR AS POSSIBLE. JUST TO GO UP TO ALASKA AND PLAY FELT LIKE A DREAM. TO TAKE THE TUNES TO THE KIDS AND FUCKING JUST HAMMER IT HOME DESPITE ALL ODDS MAN – THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT. I HAVE A NEW RECORD COMING OUT IN A LITTLE BIT CALLED “I DON’T WANNA GO INTO THE DARKNESS” AND IT IS HEAVILY INFLUENCED BY MY TRAVELS AROUND THIS TIME. BELOW ARE A FEW PICTURES FROM THE TOUR.
