Day 8: A Back Step Behind

Back in San Francisco. Regroup. Re-plan. We've had some ridiculously bad luck... the van and mileage were an increasing problem. We duct tape fixed that... but the BP spill, besides being a great tragedy and soon to be another example of injustice, has caused gas to increase by almost a dollar in some areas of the country. With summer fast approaching we anticipate even higher gas prices. Never mind the amount of money we've lost... The Tour is still on but we've had to cancel 4 shows to save 200, and our All Ages brand. We are fighting to continue on. Tom and I are feeling a lot of pressure but we've resolved ourselves to this tour. We've spent more than two years preparing and planning- so we need to adapt to the present situations. Don't get me wrong, we didn't invest everything into the US tour... We may relocate and rethink Japan as our primary tour location for the album with the US as a secondary. But the album was written for the US tour. We are taking a few days, but I haven't stopped booking, and we are practicing more than ever. We've cleaned out the van, and reorganized our merch... things are gonna be ok. We want to thank our title sponsor:
Follow us on Twitter... we obviously know where we are going!
