Two weeks ago we departed from Los Angeles and headed east on our first ever US tour. After a 4 day drive across this big piece of country through desert, forest and sprawling cities, we found ourselves in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the town in which not only the American Office is set but also the first stop of the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival Tour. This year’s lineup features an eclectic mix of rock bands from old to new. Heavyweights such as Alice in Chains, Jane’s Addiction, Coheed and Cambria and Circa Survive will act as the tour’s main headliners in the arena. New Politics, Middle Class Rut, Walking Papers as well as us and many others open the show every day in an afternoon festival style setting.
The shows have been amazing. Every day after a couple of local bands get things going, we walk onto the Coldcock Herbal Whisky Stage and introduce our music to a new town, something we’ve dreamed of doing since we were 13 years old. After we’re done playing, we rush to the Ernie Ball Booth and our merch tent where we are greeted by throngs of new fans, most of whom had never heard of us half an hour beforehand.
We are only 6 shows into this 6 week tour but we are already blown away by the amount of amazing people we’ve met and friends we have made. Shout out to our new buddies in Chuck Shaffer Picture Show, who we have had the pleasure of getting to know over the last week or so. I can already tell that this first tour is going to create a lot of incredible memories for us. The other night, the guys in Coheed threw a rad party after the show and their singer was acting as bartender. I would never have thought that I’d be ordering drinks from Claudio! This is going to be the summer of our lives and we look forward to taking you all along for the ride!”
