your walls are up
too cold to touch it
your walls are up
too high to climb
I know it’s hard
but I can still hear it beating
so if you flash your heart
I won’t mistreat it
-“Love Lost” by The Temper Trap
So I am sitting in the Portland International Airport waiting for my flight back to Los Angeles and I thought I would take this time to update you on how the tour went and upcoming goodies I plan to show you.
This year’s warped tour was full of long and hot days as well as monsoon like weather. I believe the worst day weather wise was Houston when we had to deal with a storm and mud all day. Dear lord that was probably one of the craziest days but at the same time, all of you were in high spirits so that definitely helped.
On a personal note, I met an amazing group of people on this tour that spanned from my very crew to everyone on the tour. I can tell you I became a fan of many other bands and I’m excited to see what everyone will be doing this fall.
For all who helped us recycle this summer, thank you SO MUCH! Thanks to you, Mayday recycled the most out of any band on tour and hopefully you received a free signed poster for helping us collect recycling. The earth is living a little longer thanks to you.
I am sorry I didn’t make many video blogs as I promised, ironically my job got in the way of that but luckily I filmed enough footage/interviews with the band to edit and debut a mini documentary that I’ll release soon. It’ll include live footage, special picture and behind the scenes footage from the tour. I will also post up more pics from the tour as well.
Big thanks to Mayday Parade for letting me work with them again this summer. The crew and the band are some of the most hardworking people in this business so make sure to thank them whenever you are at a show.
I’ll post up pics/vids sometime this week, so till then, farewell!
