Spinal Tap?

Posted on February 12, 2008

A few words from Chimaira’s Mark… currently on the Roadrage tour… Hello people! So it is great to be back in the UK now, the past couple shows have been off the hook. If I had to pick my favorite UK show so far I would say Manchester. The fans there were just out of hand to say the least. Yesterday we got to do our first in store meet and greet in Newcastle. We figured it would be a Spinal Tap moment (meaning no fans would show up for those of you who have been living in a cave and haven’t seen the movie) but we were shocked to walk around the corner and see a ton of kids. It was a real treat to meet some of our UK fans and we had a great time. A few hours later we did the show and it seemed like Newcastle really enjoyed what they were seeing and hearing as far as we were concerned. We played pretty well considering half the band is really sick at the moment. Today we did another in store and we survived another potential Spinal Tap moment. Now it is time to soundcheck then destroy Wolverhampton. From what I hear this will be the best show of the tour (coming from other bands that have rocked Wolverhampton). Onward and upward, looking forward to coming back in February to headline the UK…so ya if this is news to you, hehe, we are coming back for sure! Till then…
