Chinese tour update.. Hey Friends! Morten here (the drummer) with a small tour update. Right now we are at a tattoo parlor were Lars "many beers" is under the needle... So far everything has been great. The Chinese people are very friendly and hungry to see metal shows. The gear we have played on have been fine :) Our sound engineer managed to destroy 2 PA systems thou'... Tomorrow we will play our last show here in Beijing. We were supposed to open up for Soilwork, but unfortunatly Soilwork had to cancel their Chinese tour since they didn't get visas. That sucks since Soilwork is actually one of the bands that we all like a lot and it would have been killer to play with them. Hopefully lot's of people will come to show anyway... Instead, RAUNCHY will be headlining the show :) Today we saw the forbidden city and we have also been at the Great Wall. Awesome!!!! The Schecter guys and Painkiller guys have been such great hosts. We wanna thank them for all that they have done for us!!! A special thanks goes out to "Bob", Flaming (Flemming) and Yang!! Ni hau det' fee'. And of course Martin of ROSA :)
See ya guys and remember our Release party at Lades in Copenhagen on the 14th. of June.
10 am local time. In a few hours we're going to a venue in the artsy fartsy district of Beijing. We're playing with a Swedish band called Karin Park (http://www.myspace.com/karinpark) who've been kind enough to take us in, as our scheduled gigs started disappearing like good taste at a metal show.
Yesterday we played at Midi School of Rock. It was a great show in a very small venue. People we're actually hanging out from the windows of the room. Maybe they we're trying to get away... Originally that gig was supposed to be at the midi festival, but when the festival got cancelled by the Chinese government, this replacement show on a small music school in the outskirts of Beijing was arranged. Fun fact: When we first arrived to the aiport, Yang (one of the many nice locals helping us out) told us that this replacement gig had been canceled because of a virus outbreak in another part of China and a horrible train wreck. But then, all of a sudden, thursday, we we're told it was back on friday.
Well, gotta go dig up a cup of coffee. Maybe one of the other guys will check in later. Maybe not.
Just checking in here from Beijing, China. Arrived a few days ago after a long but great trip (thank you Red Wine and Beer) We´re living in the center of Beijing and the hotel is fine eventhough Morten and and Jesper K´s room smeels like an old cigar factory.
In about an hour we're going to Beijing School of Rock to play. We'll try to update this blog one of the next days.
