Weatherbox dropped off of their summer tour with Dikembe at the start of August due to a medical emergency. Many fans have expressed concern and curiosity over details, and frontman Brian Warren took it upon himself to write a final Road Blog for PropertyOfZack to clue everyone in on what he has been experiencing and working through.
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…
