WORMROT: Reflect on Two Month European Tour
WORMROT kicked off their trek in April with fourteen shows in the UK – the band’s first ever shows on British soil. Following the UK stint, the band tore their way around Europe, getting stranded in Italy along the way and fighting through numerous other problems until the final show of the tour in Amsterdam at the very end of June. The band plans to announce dates for a USA tour soon.
Read below for a snippet of WORMROT vocalist ARIF looking back at the fun and mishaps of the tour:
“The tour we did in the UK was a blast. We had a great time meeting the people behind Earache Records and they were being all awesome towards us… We had tons of killer supporters even though we are kinda new band in grind. Meeting new and suprisingly old friends… It all went very cool when we were in UK. The only down side was that we can’t get used to the damn weather there. It’s too fucking cold. Oh and also we had to jump start our huge ass van towards the end of the tour to get it worked. Haha! It was crazy going up and down the road to get it fucking start! But it was all good. No big deal about that. Everything was awesome till we hit Europe in my honest opinion.
“So here we go. First of all, or shall I say to sum it up, we had a fucked up driver with a goddamn family car to tour all around Europe for one and a half months. We had merch, CDs, equipments and literally our own corpses squeezed in that sorry excuse of a car. That did not stop us all from touring… The thing that made us go through this whole chaos was mostly because of the grinders in Europe. Killer, killer, killer supports and they really mean a lot to us!”
