This is what happens when you let bands crash in your rehearsal studio… Our mates from Leverkusen had a gig in Berlin & needed somewhere to stay. Wicked few days of jams, chills & beer.
There were 5 people sleeping in one room & there’s no shower in the building. So things did get pretty funky in there. But hey, a jam ain’t a jam without a some sweat in the air.
We’re alive & kicking. Been settling into Berlin for the last month. Touring is great, but man it feels good to have a home again. Real beds baby! Caught up with our old crew at Mauerpark this weekend. The summer vibe is in full swing & you can literally breathe the creativity in the air…
Staying in some cool share houses on the east side of the city. We’re a short bike ride from the studio which is going to make writing sessions way easier.
We’re smashing through the boring stuff atm (like sorting through giant bags of receipts from the tour- yay). Once that’s done, it’s studio time.
Feeling very warm & fuzzy about the human race right now! Seeing so much passionate support for the US Supreme Court’s decision making gay marriage a constitutional right has been… amazing.
Kudos to America for taking a massive step forward for human rights & equality! The US’s cultural influence over the Western world means it won’t be long before more countries follow. Hopefully even ultra-conservative Australia & Europe (yes, Europe: gay marriage is only legal in 9 of the 28 EU countries).
This is a momentous occasion. Not just because our society is beginning to realise it doesn’t have the right to legislate love between consenting adults. But also because planet earth just got behind the concept of equality in a big way. If we fan those flames they can spread to race, gender & all other forms of discrimination.
We’ve got a long way to go, but it looks like we’re finally starting to grow up.

Just landed in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Almost missed our flight out of Australia thanks to Kay’s overpacked bag exploding all over the checkin counter. 8 hours down, 15 to go, then we’re back in Berlin!
Ok, time to find an epic Malaysian curry joint…
