One Road Out of West Michigan – Wayland Tour Log 2/5/14

Texas is freezing!!! The cold air makes it painful to step off the bus! WOW! Everyone always says that we should be used to cold weather, being from Michigan, but it's something I've never gotten used to. There's no coincidence in the fact that we route our tours down South in the winter! Ha ha!

One Road Out of Michigan – Wayland Tour Log 2/4/14

Yesterday, we left Daytona Beach, Fla., and drove all the way to Jackson, Miss.

We split up the drive between Tyler, Chip, and Mitch. I spent most of the day responding to emails and planning upcoming shows. Mitch and I are organizing the time we plan to spend in L.A. next week.

We'll only have two or three days in a studio, and need to figure out how to make the most out of the time. We have a few new songs we'd like to record, but there are a few touch-ups we need to do on the unreleased recordings of "All Rise" and "No More."

One Road Out of West Michigan – Phil’s Wayland Tour Log 2/3/14

On Sunday, we ended up at a high-rise Super Bowl party that never turned on the game. Ha ha!

The view of the Atlantic Ocean from up there was just amazing and most of us never even noticed that the game wasn't on until it was almost over; oops!

I think Tyler Coburn is the only one that actually went in search of a spot to watch the game

One Road Out of West Michigan: Phil’s Wayland Tour Log 2/2/14

Last night was one of those loud, hot and sweaty shows where some people were kicked out before we played for being too drunk. Others were knocked out cold by security, and the stage had 15 floor monitors that didn't work! It was a rowdy night in Daytona Beach!  There was something in the air that brought the "crazy" out in everyone last night!!

We had a great crowd of dedicated Wayland Warriors in the front row that inspired the band to pull close together and play like it was our last show ever. Two warriors even celebrated their 40th Wayland show last night!

Slayer Drummer Dave Lombardo Dismissed From Australian Tour After Financial Dispute

Legendary Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo has just detonated a pipe bomb regarding the thrash band's business dealings and internal turmoil. One week ago, on Valentine's Day, Lombardo was notified by the band's lawyers that his services behind the kit would not be needed for Slayer's upcoming Australian tour dates. The entire story feels beyond odd and incredibly cold, and Lombardo has detailed the sudden decision in an official statement.
