Been staying at my parents’ place in Australia since the end of our Euro tour. Tonight’s our last night down under! Mum cooked us a Sri Lankan feast (and taught our guitarist/tour chef Mr. Bob Spencer how to make her world famous lentil curry).
It’s been sooo good being around family again. Sad we’re leaving tomorrow, but we’re really pumped as well. It’s been almost a year since we left Berlin! Can’t wait to clear the cobwebs out of our rehearsal studio & turn all these demos into a killer new album.
Our post-tour stop in Australia is almost over. So… band night out! Watched Age of Ultron, got pretty drunk at an Irish bar, hit up a video games arcade. Good times.
We try & do a night out every couple of weeks. You might think it’s weird since we’re together 24/7 but touring, jamming & managing the band is a totally different headspace. You’ve gotta make time to just chill as bros or else it’s a cabin fever extravaganza.
Only 2 days till we fly out & a whole new chapter begins. BIG announcements coming soon!

King of the Sugarcoated Tongues – Live in Berlin, Germany
We were chilling with some fans after our gig when this dude tapped Kay on the shoulder & complimented him on his drumming. Yes ladies and gents, I think we found Dave Grohl’s evil German twin! If the Foo Fighters are missing a frontman, he’s hiding out in Berlin.
We had a little drum jam session with him & his girlfriend before we loaded out. Seemed appropriate.
Grungiest band room ever? Quite possibly. The club we played at in Chemnitz, Germany converted their garage into this crash pad for musos.
There was something moving inside the kettle & the sheets were kinda crunchy… Cool vibe though. The walls are covered in posters from the bands that have played in town.
All the mattresses are next to each other so it feels a bit like school camp. Combine that with the lethal vodka/chilli/garlic shots the owner pours us while we play… yeah, well you get the idea. Hangover city.
One thing’s for sure- the further east you go in Germany, the more hardcore they get!
