Flynn’s Diary

Posted on February 12, 2008

An update from Robert Flynn’s diary from the band’s official site. “We are officially finished with the Roadrunner Records Road Rage Tour. Super stoked to have toured, hung out, drank with the Chimaira boys once again. I love those guys, and I love that band. í¢ä‰åñThe Impossibility of Reasoní¢ä‰åŒ is one of the best modern metal records to come out in the past 5 years, and they are a un-fucking-believable live band. Wow! Those guys have really come into their own. It is awesome to see how much they have improved since we first took those guys out back in 2001. Monday Night Mosh!!!!! Openers / teenagers Trivium rocked the house big time, and went over really well. Seriously good dudes too. The Brown Eyes flowed heavily. In Chicago… oh my God. In Anaheim…oh í¢ä‰åäóì Jesus – God?! Roadrunner really stepped up to the plate and did a great job delivering the goods. There were ads up the ass! Nearly all the shows kicked butt. Had a couple o’ duds… DC was boring, Detroit was good. Toronto rocked, NYC… f#%kin’ A! San Antonio, & Columbus… Holy Cow!!! Orlando… What the f#%k!!! Philly… F#%K YEAH! HOLY SHIT!? People singing along to í¢ä‰åñSeasons Witherí¢ä‰åŒ and í¢ä‰åñDays Turn Blue To Grayí¢ä‰åŒ SO loud!!! It’s crazy. Good stuff. Best circle pit of the tour hands down goes to Orlando…unreal man…you guys got issues… ************************************************* Heard a new The Haunted track called í¢ä‰åñ99 livesí¢ä‰åŒ …oh… my… god!!!??? Peter Dolving’s vocals sound absolutely amazing. It warms my soul to hear a man that angry. That guy is seriously pissed off. Also got a chance to hear the Megadeth í¢ä‰åñPeace Sellsí¢ä‰åŒ remasters… and you know, I honestly forgot how great this record was. It is a masterpiece. God Forbid’s í¢ä‰åñGone Foreverí¢ä‰åŒ is still in heavy rotation in the dressing room, it’s definitely got some staying power, and we are REALLY fired up to have them on board for Europe. If you missed them on the NWOAHM tour, be sure to catch em’ with us this time, you won’t be disappointed. Dew Scented’s í¢ä‰åñInwardí¢ä‰åŒ and í¢ä‰åñImpactí¢ä‰åŒ are both getting heavy rotation, as is the mighty, MIGHTY Viking Skull who have nearly attained worship status. ************************************************* Watching my 11 week old son learn how to laugh…man…it is the cutest god darn thing I’ve seen in my entire life. Jesus!? Did I mention it’s summertime?! Wakeboarding, camping, the lake, the sun, already did it once, and can’t wait to do it again. Group camping sites right on the water, with all your friends, bar-b-queing, drinking an ice cold Peet’s Wicked Ruby Brown Ale or two, or three, or four… no phone, no TV, no internet… ah… heaven! ************************************************* Burn My Eyes turned 10. Wow?! In all honesty I never thought we’d last this long. We are so grateful, fortunate, and so lucky to have the best, most passionate, rabid, and insanely loyal fans in the entire world. You inspire us. You’ve kept us going in times of doubt, and keep us going even now. You are the reason the world will miss us when we’re gone. What more can I say? Fuckin’. Wow?! Love, man. Fuckin’. Love. And yes, in case you were wondering, we recorded every second of the BME 10th anniversary performance in Philly with a 6-camera, 24-track digital filming-and-recording rig courtesy of the guys at High Roller productions, and it will be released in some form or another. Hell yeah!! ************************************************* As for the immediate future, we will be shooting a video for “Days Turn Blue To Gray” starting Tues. Sept 21st, and it’s looking like we might be filming a “live” DVD from our Brixton Academy show in London. What we would like to see happen is for this DVD to be released in the beginning of the year, with the main DVD being the London show with the first pressing of the DVD containing a “limited edition bonus DVDí¢ä‰åŒ of our ‘Burn My Eyes’ 10th Anniversary show, as basically a thank you for our hardcore fans, and long time supporters. After that first pressing has sold out, the bonus BME show will go away, and the full London DVD will be available. So if you sleep on it, your loss. ************************************************* Australians, we have heard your pleas and they will be answered. We’re finally heading down to… headline Down Under for the first time in 9 years… FUCK YEAH!! AND we will be collecting our first Gold Record ever! Cheers Australia for giving us our first Gold record fuckers! We’re really, really looking forward to hanging with you VB drinkin’ lunatics. We will NOT be going to Japan this year. So instead we will bypass Japan entirely, and go directly to Europe / UK and on Oct 8th, commence the biggest, most extensive tour in the history of this band. HELL yeah!!! We cannot wait! Plus, Paris with Slipknot and Slayer! Ruling! Until then, we look forward to seeing all of you ‘Supercharger’ tattoo havin’, beer drinkin’, vodka stinkin’, circle pit wreckin’, hell raisin’, “Machine Fuckin’ Head” chantin’, life lovin’ lunatics out on tour!!! Hell YEAH!!!” -Flynn
