The van is packed, and we’re ready to Leave for Jacksonville. Casey is feeling much better, which I will take as a good omen. The van is JAM packed. Looks like a tour van to me.
I am finally posting my tour journal. I guess this is just for all you curious cats who don’t get to go rolling around the country with a bunch of stinky punks in your van and wondered what it is like. Hopefully a peek into my perspective will satisfy some of your voyeuristic desires. This tour occurred in November. If you wanna read it here it comes. One day at a time….
While cleaning around the house we stumbled upon a dusty box. When we opened it it was to our surprise that we had discovered some long lost copies of the now four year old split cassette with Chicken & Whiskey / Tam Tam The Sandwich Man & The Magical Sugar Cookies. These have been long out of print this was for a tour they did together way back in 2011. Tam Tam was headed out to SXSW and Chicken & Whiskey split back off home after Houston.

Even though we hate everything that Black Friday stands for we have to give the people what they want. So we have activated a promo code for our store that will get you 50% off everything the code is good until Midnight on 11/28/2015. Also every order made before 12/15/2015 will include a free Godless America Mixtape Vol. 1 while supplies last. There is a bunch of new goodies up in the store so if you were holding out for any reason now’s the time to scoop up all those dope tapes at bargain basement prices.
Just in time for the blackest of Black Friday’s we just put some goodies up in the store. Now you can grip on all the exclusive swag me and the boys were slinging on our recent trip to Germany. We were able to smuggle back some European delights in the form of cassettes and records. Also every order made before 12/25/2015 will come with a FREE! Godless America Mixtape Vol. 1 while supplies last.
Do you enjoy dirty looks from passers on? Do you like having awkward conversations with complete strangers in line at the grocery store? Well we have just the shirt for you. Not only do you get to show your support for one of the sickest underground cassette labels in the South. But you also get the awesome experience of having to wear this baby out in public. Now if you are a Godless Freak like we all know you are then this will not stop you so join us brothers and sisters friends of the revolution and let your freak flag fly. Order yours here while you still can.
So it’s been a few days since getting back from touring Germany with Room Full of Strangers. I had to take a few days to decompress and get readjusted back to my regular flow. I think it’s about time to try to recap on our trip. Let’s start from the beginning.
We left Orlando at 8pm on 10/21 and after an 8 hour flight we landed in Dublin where we had a pretty lengthy layover before boarding another plane to Dusseldorf. Finally we were in Germany we met up with our booking agent Mary of Turbo Booking and got to meet Rosie the van we would be renting for the length of the tour. The first stop we made was to pick up our backline from Gate to Hell then it was off to the first gig in Cologne at Sonic Ballroom. This first night was our first taste pun intended of just how different Europe treats bands compared to here in the states.
