Europe Tour 2014 – Part 1
Greetings from France! Or I guess I should say Bonjour!
We landed in Amsterdam Friday and after a long and sleepless plane ride we had made it! The Netherlands were very good to us. The people were very warm and friendly and quite helpful and we hope to see you all again soon! The two days of the Very ‘Eavy festival were incredible and it was an honour to share the stage with so many incredible old school bands!
From Stadskanaal we headed south to Paris where we played at Warm Up Fest on Sunday. I have to give a big shout out and huge thanks to Doro who not only booked us for the show but put up with our smelly feet and gave us a place to crash! The show had some minor technical difficulties but otherwise was really fun and gave us a chance to watch some really killer bands..
Today is one of few days off we are getting here in Europe and we used it to tour around Metz, France and see some old ass churches and Fortified town gates. Metz has been around since the 13th century and has been home to both French and German people for a long time so it was very interesting to learn about the local history here. The hotel room here looks a lot like what you would find in a cruise cabin with the shower pretty much including the toilet so it is kind of a tight fit for all our gear and ourselves. But still staying in hotels is kind of a step up from McDonalds parking lots haha
