Terry here… I’m finally recovered from what has been Tribune’s funnest and most successful tour to date. It’s been about 12 days since Tribune got back from tour and we’re still adjusting back to our normal lives. So much has happened between our last blog in Saskatchewan and the end of our tour that summing up everything that happened in one blog entry just won’t do.
If you’re wondering why I haven’t put a blog up until now, we’ve been too busy to post the way we’d like to. I thought that maybe I could tap away on my laptop while we travelled. Alas, the highways of Canada have taken a turn for the worse in the wake of a really bad winter. Consequently, they were too bumpy for my meathooks and I to effectively depict our adventures.
ALSO… I absolutely destroyed my neck while playing our show in Victoria. After nearly a month of riding in the van, drinking every day, and not getting enough exercise, I don’t think I was quite prepared for the Victoria scene. I banged my head so hard that night that when I went to stretch it the following morning, I overdid it and… well… seriously screwed up the muscles in the right side of my neck and back. But hey, that’s just metal. We had one more show to do in Nanaimo and I just medicated as I see fit. ‘Gotta love drink tickets. Even two weeks later, I’m still recovering.
The good news is that we have lots of pictures, videos, and people to thank from our journeys on the road. There’s a lot of mixed media to go over, edit, and upload. In time, we’ll share our various shenanigans from:
One thing that you can do to help is by sending us your own photos from the shows we played during our tour. We’ll credit you with them, add them to our gallery, and help you link to them on our website if you like. ALSO, please feel free to send us photos of yourselves with any of the Tribune swag you aquired. We’ll feature you in an upcoming fan Gallery on our website. Go ahead and send to this address: [email protected]
So what’s next for Tribune? There’s lots of plans in the works. For starters, we’ll be replenishing our merch stock, because the whole country seriously depleted it. Get in touch and reserve a shirt with us if you want. The band is very stoked on writing new material, but that may not come out for a year or two. I can’t personally say when you’ll first get to hear any of it but what I can say is that we’ll be writing another concept album. This time, it’s looking like we’ll actually be writing the music itself around the concepts that we discuss beforehand. That’s how it’s looking at this point in time. Ideas change and you can’t let rules get in the way of creativity, but this is how things look right now.
We cannot thank you all enough for the love and support! There are so many people to be thanked that we’ll save the individual thank-you’s for later posts as we post more about the tour. This has been Tribune’s most successful tour to date and we owe it all to you!
