Wow! Jerome, Idaho was like a homecoming celebration last night! The people there have welcomed us and treated us like family ever since the first time we played there in 2012. At this point it truly doesn’t matter what day of the week it is that we roll through town, the people of Jerome come out ready to party! The crowd was yelling requests throughout the whole set, and we played most of the songs they asked for. Mitch promised a girl that we’d play “Dirty Angelina” next time we’re there. We haven’t played that in years!!

Dean, Tyler and I made some terrible decisions the night before in Reno in regards to our alcohol intake. Haha! We felt like total shit all day yesterday. The moment we hit the stage everything changed. I swear a stage is the best cure for a hangover. From the first hit of the first song, we played harder than ever. It felt so good that we played an extra long set, which we rarely do on week nights. I said I wouldn’t drink last night, but when a veteran of war buys you a shot, it’s kind of disrespectful to turn it down. So 4 or 5 shots later we got into our bunks and were back up at 6am to head to radio in Pocatello ID.

We were on the air for a little over an hour, and performed “Nobody’s Perfect,” “Shopping for a Savior,” and “Reno.” The band played really good this morning and we had really natural conversation between us and the morning show host, Don, at 102.5.

We don’t have a show tonight but we all have endless to-do lists. Get an oil change, laundry, wal-mart stop for toiletries, merch order, merch mailing, etc. We’re looking forward to 7am morning radio in Idaho Falls tomorrow and our return to DB’s, where we had a wild Halloween show with Bliss last year.

We are so excited about filming the live DVD at the Intersection on April 5th. It sounds like Wayland Warriors are traveling from all over the country to be a part of the night. This is going to be such a special event.
