Currently Thornley is wrapping up a few dates in Canada. Last night (Sept 2) was at the Foundation Nite Club in East Barrie, ONT (approx 3 hours away from where the band calls home) and tomorrow night is a show in Montreal (also 3 hours away from home, but in the opposite direction). Since returning to Canada after their most recent US tour travels, the band has had the pleasure of playing Ottawa for the second time over the course of the past nine months…and for some reason, they swear by it. Seems that is the one venue where the sound is always great onstage and out front…where the band is always healthy…where all band members are on the top of their game. “These shows are usually few and far between,” tells bassist Worm. “There is almost always one of the four band members who has something going on – tech issues, head not in the game, bad phone call earlier, something. For some reason Ottawa seems to have taken these distractions and boxed them up allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in the show.” Amen. God bless the nation’s capital. Other Thornley briefs: – Sekou is in the September US issue of DRUM! magazine (Elvin Jones is on the cover) – Worm is experimenting with a 12 string bass. – Tavis got new kicks – the Fiddler’s Green on Cambridge, Ontario (where the band played Sept 1) is haunted by a ghost named Emily. Apparently, true. – It looks like Thornley will be returning to the states shortly. It is likely the band will be touring stateside with Breaking Benjamin starting later this month.
