One Road Out of Pocatello – Wayland Tour Log 2/20/14

I think we all needed yesterday to catch up on life.

We hadn't done laundry since we were in Los Angeles and our home-stay's washer and dryer here in Idaho Falls, Idasho, has been running nonstop for over 24 hours. Home-stay is the term we've adopted for the families who let us stay with them while we're in their town.

Home-stays are absolute saints, and they save our asses out here. We take the gesture very seriously and always make sure to have respect everyone's home like it's our own.

Our current host made an amazing vegan lasagna last night for dinner.

One Road Out of Jerome – Wayland Tour Log 2/19/14

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!!

One Road Out of Reno! – Wayland Tour Log 2/18/14

Reno was an epic adventure once again! My hangover is epic, and Dean's is even worse! Ha ha!

The show was a blast. The staff at Brew Brothers were all so nice, and the sound crew was top notch, too.

Both acoustic and electric sets got a great response. It was fun playing to a bunch of tourists that wondered in from the casino as well as so many familiar Reno faces.

One Road Into Reno! Wayland Tour Log 2/17/14

We got into town around 2pm yesterday. We checked in at the Eldorado and went off to explore downtown Reno. We all took some time apart to call our families. Mitch and I met up a little later and tried our luck on the Penny and Nickel slots. We were not very lucky. Haha!

A friend of Royal Bliss invited us out to a club he works at in town. We were all pretty exhausted but Mitch and I mustered up the energy to go. We didn't want to pass on a potential adventure in Reno.

One Road Out of Vegas – Wayland Tour Log 2/16/14

The club last night was awesome. Great sound, great stage, wonderful staff.

You know you're in Las Vegas when there's more leather, studs and sequence in the crowd than there is on stage. We were opening for a well-known local Vegas cover band.

One Road Out of Kingman – Wayland Tour Log 2/15/14

I was a little sad to leave L.A. yesterday. Only because we are getting so close to finishing this group of songs that it's frustrating to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and not be able to run into it. If we just had two or three weeks in the studio we could really wrap things up.

Yesterday in Kingman, Ariz., was fantastic from start to end. The promoter and venue took amazing care of us, the openers were great people, and the crowd was raging and ready for a Friday night rock show! We played for almost 2 hours!

One Road Out of The San Fernando Valley – Wayland Tour Log 2/14/14

Happy Valentines Day everyone! It feels great to be back in the bus as we roll out of town. Everyone seems fresh and ready to get to work.

We got a lot done yesterday. Mitch, Gurley, and myself spent the early afternoon writing and met up with the band over at Mates Rehearsal at 4pm. The guy working there said if we had shown up 30 minutes earlier we would've ran into Slash. That would've been cool. We've had a few interesting run-ins with Slash over the last few years.

One Last Day in L.A. – Wayland Tour Log 2/13/14

We had an amazingly productive day in the rehearsal room yesterday. We arranged a full-band, acoustic version of "Follow" and spent some time jamming on the new arrangement of "Bloody Sunrise." We also worked on a new arrangement for "Get a Little," and for the last 2 hours we jammed on some brand new songs.

Day 3 in L.A. – Wayland Tour Log 2/11/14

We loaded into a rehearsal studio at noon yesterday. We rehearsed the new version of "Bloody Sunrise" and worked on a new song that we're calling "Superhero," but that title could always change. It was so refreshing to actually listen to and hear the music we were making. The monitors in a live club situation are always just enough to get by, never really enough to actually inspire. As a player, your ears tend to take a few songs to adjust and then you start to find the each instrument as you go along. Sometimes I don't hear Dean's bass until the 3rd song in the set and it's like "Oh, hey Dean! Glad you're here!"

One Road, Stuck in Traffic in Los Angeles – Wayland Tour Log 2/11/14

Yesterday was a long day.

Once we got into the studio, we basically reconstructed "Bloody Sunrise" from the ground up.

I'm so excited about the work we did, I think it really made the song come alive. At the very end of the session, we finished mixing "Follow."

I'm looking forward to living with it for a few days. Hopefully, after hearing it with fresh ears, we all agree that it's finished so we can cross it off the to-do list!

One Road Into Los Angeles! – Wayland tour log 2/10/14

Hey everyone! I don't have a lot of time to go into detail about the last 24 hours. We arrived in LA around 5pm. Dean, Ty and Chip are staying in what could be considered somewhat of a crack-hotel in the valley. Haha! Mitch and I are staying at our producer Mike Gurley's place, just so we can continue writing between sessions. Mike, Mitch, and I were up until about 2am discussing previous mixes of all the new songs.
