Head below to get clued in on Brian’s meltdown due to a lack of medication, a foray into drugs, and a hopeful restart.

Finch Announce Tour With Weatherbox, Maps & Atlases 

Let me first start off by apologizing to everyone in the city of Salt and on for not being able to play those shows. Despite the meltdown that originally occurred behind/under/atop the merch table in Lawrence on July 29th, we were really trying to keep the train on the tracks. I/we have absolutely no idea how I/we played those shows in Lawrence and Denver.  The delusion was intense and I slept maybe 5 hours in those last 6 or 7 days.  These dudes are my brothers and did an amazing job trying to keep everything together as I descended into a spiral of insomnia, paranoia and Shane-shaming.  Huge thanks to them for eventually delivering me safely into a facility where I could stabilize: I owe you. Big time.

 If you been tuned into these tour reports, I know AJ has let most of you fair readers know what was happening up until Denver. Up until our day off after the St. Louis show, the tour had been going great. All the shows were well attended and Weatherbox was having our best tour since the glory days of American Art. Huge thanks to all the fans who have come out to these shows and showed their support, hopefully we played as you expected/hoped we would.

 But then I took the drug…

POZ Road Blog: Weatherbox (Update IV)

Weatherbox unfortunately had to pull off of their tour with Dikembe in support of their great new album, Flies In All Directions, but we have one more Road Blog from the band. Read the entry below!

From AJ Peacox: 

It’s the final 9 days of tour, and home is starting to feel like a finish line as we are making our way west through Kansas. 

In our last entry we were about to play at the Ottawa Tavern in Toledo, OH, a show that featured our good buddies in Shitty Neighbors. After their awesome headlining set the fellas were nice enough to give us each our own Shitty Neighbors shirt! 

The next day we were super excited to head out to Chicago where a bunch of our friends live. We played at a venue called Township that was really cool. The opening band Great Deceivers rocked out, and the amazing Kittyhawk took the stage after us. We were humbled to play to a packed room of enthusiastic Chicagoans. However, driving our van through the city proved to be a challenge. 

In St. Louis we played Fubar and had an excellent time watching the opening bands with Dikembe. One of the bands, Everyone Leaves, had one of the best ‘Defend Pop Tarts’ t-shirts that I’ve seen. After the show we headed to the hotel with Dikembe and our friends Kristin and Cory, who drove all the way from Orlando to hang with us in Chicago and St. Louis.

POZ Road Blog: Weatherbox (Update III)

by Zack Zarrillo - Aug 1, 2014

Weatherbox are out on tour with Dikembe supporting their great new album, Flies In All Directions. PropertyOfZack is happy to have the band locked in for a Road Blog series on the tour. Check out the tour dates here and the second Road Blog below!

From AJ Peacox: 

This past week has been an interesting installment in our tour journey with Dikembe. 

In our last entry we were about to play Buffalo, NY. The drive from Boston was long and exhausting, but we still found time to stop at a strange rest stop where we got our fortunes read by none other than Zoltar himself. Hours later we pulled into town at some ungodly hour. Once in Buffalo, we decided to goof around and listen to music until 6am, ensuring just enough time to nap before our session at Quiet Country Audio and our show at The Waiting Room.

After an amazing show with some of our favorite fans, we spent the night hanging out with our new friends before sinking into some much-needed sleep. The next morning we had our last American meal at our host’s restaurant. Then it was time to go to Canada. 

Canada is a foreign country located north of the United States. Most of us know it’s there, but most of us had never been there! Everything was incredibly new and exciting, from the $2 coins to the strange food known as Poutine. 

Our show was a lot of fun. It will go down in history as Weatherbox’s 2nd Canadian show ever - the first one since 2007. We met amazing people and bands, and even a dude who looked exactly like Brian.

From AJ Peacox:

It’s been 17 days since we left our hometown of San Diego to embark on our tour. I’m writing this entry thousands of miles from home, sitting on a back porch in Boston, MA where some awesome people put us up for the night after our show at the Great Scott. 

Our show in Brooklyn was incredibly fun. St. Vitas is always a really fun venue to hang out at with its vampiric ethos and ‘satan loves you’ wristbands. It’s right across the street from the God Bless Deli, the juxtaposition of which never fails to entertain. 

In my last entry I mentioned that we hoped to wander be city. Well, we got our wish after the show when our band members got separated, and half of us wandered the streets of Brooklyn at 3 am, sleeping bags and dead phones in hand, trying to find Brian.

Weatherbox are out on tour with Dikembe supporting their great new album, Flies In All Directions. PropertyOfZack is happy to have the band locked in for a Road Blog series on the tour. Check out the tour dates here and the first Road Blog below!

From AJ Peacox:

Us Weatherboxes began our tour adventures on July 4th, watching fireworks off the side of the freeway as we put San Diego further and further behind us.

The first show in New Mexico was exciting. It was the first time playing with this current line-up, and of course we got to see our buddies in Seahaven.

Making our way across the south with Seahaven, we played a show in Oklahoma City before heading up to the Hoosier Dome in Indianapolis where fans brought us Tarot cards and magic crystals. After splitting up for a raucous basement show in Carbondale it was time for the long drive to Atlanta, GA for a show at the Drunken Unicorn. Goodbye, Seahaven!

We were excited for Atlanta not only because we love our fans out there, but because we finally got to meet up with Dikembe. After watching their set for the first time, we knew this tour was going to be filled with rock, fun, and Magic the Gathering.
