Before the recent tour, Chimaira & Every Time I Die had never been on the road together, never even hung out for a beer. Eleven guys in 2 bands, complete strangers, sharing a bus for over 3 weeks. A learning experience for sure. We asked Chimaira’s Matt DeVries, and Every Time I Die’s Andy Williams, exactly what they learnt about the other band… What are 10 things you have learnt about ‘Every Time I Die’ this tour? 1. Andy’s motto ‘Be awesome’. 2. Keith, great drinking partner. 3. Ratboy hates everyone, we love him though. 4. Jordan has some good DVDs. 5. Steve likes stringing his bass. 6. Andy and Ratboy like the song ‘Clayden’ by the weird renowned Cleveland band Ascension. 7. Keith and Andy have awesome tattoos. Keith has a tooth tattooed on his arm with the word ‘scary’ on it. Andy has a snake tattooed on his ass with the words ‘watch out for snakes’ written next to it (don’t ask). 8. Andy sleeps naked. 9. Andy hates the band Entombed (just kidding). 10. And Andy has a drug problem SXE. What are 10 things you have learnt about Chimaira this tour? 1. Jim likes the word pussy! 2. Ricky drinks a lot of coffee. 3. Mark really doesn’t hate everyone. 4.
