I caught up briefly with the wonderful Steve Moore of Earth too see how the first leg of their European tour was going and this is what he had to say...
"The tour is going great - awesome shows with good energy from the fans and good music (if I'm allowed to judge....!!!). We're a little exhausted from the extensive drives we've been doing - but currently on a bit of a rest waiting in Oslo to play the Inferno festival. It's an honor to be here and inspiring to see such an open minded scene.....A pleasure as always. Here is a list of the remaining dates:
Hope all is well in London! The band is looking forward, as always, to the UK leg of our tour.....not too many stories to tell - just getting to the gigs is an adventure!"
They will be playing out songs their phenomenal album The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull (follow up to the fantastic Hex) and hopefully the song "Junkyard Priest" which appears on the vinyl version of the album (and is one of my favourites!). This is in my opinion a wonderful record demonstrating their innovation and evolution as a band and boasting a fine line-up of Dylan Carlson, Adrienne Davies, Steve Moore and Don McGreevy. I for one cannot wait to see them!
Check out the tour poster...
"Our driver Rogier Smal made those posters in the company of Don and myself.....during a uneventful evening at the merch table in Lyon, France........... Can't remember how it came up, but it all happened with scissors and glue....lots of laughter. We actually forgot them there at the table, which somehow seems fitting."
Note: this is not the official tour poster! Worth a giggle though!!
