The Boy Will Drown Wrap Up EU Tour, Report In
British technical death metal virtuosos THE BOY WILL DROWN have just come off the road after playing a short string of dates in Germany, the band’s first shows outside of the UK.
The band report on their first venture into mainland Europe:
“First time TBWD has been on a ferry and across the pond. We were excited and looking forward to the prospect of playing shows where we wouldn’t have a clue what people were saying and seeing rather amusing place and road signs such as ‘Wankum’ lol. But so far it has been such a blast and the album material has gone down so well with the fans; also people are looking rather rad in the new tee. Surprising how late the shows start in Europe. Didn’t manage to get onstage in Gent till almost midnight! But the diehard fans stayed till the very end and it was an awesome show!!
“What have we been up to during the day?? Well… The daily activities mainly include enjoying the great weather, bit of sightseeing being total tourists, driving on the wrong side of the road (sooooo weird) then doing the gigs! Can’t be bad I reckon. All planning to get our tan on 😉 but having to pay to use the service station toilets is fucking Mack.
“Have we travelled on our own…?? Hell no! Two of our mates have joined the party! Josh from the band ‘The Temptress‘ aka Merch Bitch and Nick from ‘This Is Colour‘ aka Driver Bitch. Nick is also responsible for introducing us to Taylor Swift… Cheers man.
“What about our touring buddies…?? Mindtrap are a great bunch of guys, such a laugh and awesome musicians. Their music is so intense and we fucking love ‘em. They’re always pleased to help us whenever we’ve needed advice on the local scene and if we have language barrier problems (as none of us speak a fucking word of German) but at least we’ve been learning a few important words from them to hurl at people while driving.”
