Chimaira Checks In

Posted on February 12, 2008

Here is the latest from Chimaria frontman Mark Hunter: “Well, well… so it is the end of the line for touring the Impossibility of Reason. You all know how Road Rage went for us, and if you don’t know we have spent the past 2.5 weeks in Japan and Australia with our friends in In Flames. The tour has been a huge success for us. Japan was an amazing country and we met some really cool fucking people. If you ever go to Japan you must try Kobe beef. It is hands down the best piece of steak I have had in my life…thanks RR and NB for hooking it up cause the food was really expensive! The concerts in Japan were really good. We didn’t expect much being our first time, but to our surprise we had a ton of fans there, and we can tell we made a lot more. That makes it all worth it. “Heading down under…we had heard that Australia has the best metal fans in the world…now, we come from America where we know how crazy people can get. Even though sometimes American audiences can be a bit spoiled, it’s our home turf and when someone says that another country is better…it’s hard for us to believe. Then we went to the UK where we feel like that is our 2nd home. The UK has some of the best crowds on the planet hands down, we didn’t think it could get much better then that…until we went down under. Now I’m not saying one is better then the other, but HOLY SHIT is the only way to describe an Australian crowd. Our first time there, and you would have sworn we were playing a home town show in Cleveland. Each show was amazing and we can’t wait to get back (which will be soon!!) You guys rule, we will come back and do a full Australian headline tour as soon as we can. “We want to thank every single state in America, and country that we have been to in the past year and a half. Again, the fans we have made, the fans that we played to, you make our lives worth a damn. Thanks to all of the bands we have toured with on this record, and the friends we have made for a lifetime.” To all, thanks again —- Mark PS: We are heading down to Mexico for the first time in a few weeks, just to break up the monotony of writing…from what I hear about Mexican crowds, this could rival America, Australia and the UK combined…hopefully it lives up to our expectations…and I’m sure it will!
