POZ Road Blog: Divided By Friday (Update I)
From Matt Morgan:
We’re in St. Paul, MN, about a week and a half into our tour with Set It Off and There For Tomorrow, and every things going great! All of the shows have been incredible and its so much fun being on tour with two bands that we were friends with before the tour. We have a very very close relationship with all the SIO dudes, they’re probably our “best friends”, and so obviously every day is a good time. But we’ve also been able to have an equal amount of good times with our Hopeless brothers in TFT who we spent a week with in Japan in June! I’ll start this with a recap of the past week or so.
The first couple days of this tour we were in Florida and it was too hot. The shows were amazing but too. much. sweat. Once we stepped out of the van in Atlanta we were all so happy to be back in normal, of this world, weather. Here’s a story: We were so excited to see our friend Kenneth Mount (one half of ZK Productions, along with Zack Odom) who recorded the new Set It Off full length “Cinematics” (shameless plug, go buy it. its good). We were even more excited for him because he had told us weeks prior that he and Zack were going to be recording WWE wrestler Chris Jericho’s band Fozzy in a few weeks. If you didn’t know, our band is extremely into WWE and so finding that out was a HUGE deal to us. He showed us text conversations and was telling us all about that we were just going to miss seeing Chris Jericho. HOWEVER the night of our show in Atlanta we were finally confronted by the Set It Off guys and were told this was (once again) a huge lie and prank. Kenneth was never texting Chris Jericho, he was texting Cody from Set It Off with Cody’s number saved as “Chris Jericho”. They all thought it was hilarious because the first time we toured together they pulled some similar shenanigans, but I was bummeddddd.
The next day we were in Nashville and got to hang with a few of the Every Avenue fellows, where things may have gotten a little out of hand, but we carried on strong to St. Louis the next day. The 24-48 hrs between St. Louis and Indianapolis were very long for a few of us.
