TAKING DAWN guitarist Mikey has written a blog about the band’s arrival to these shores this week. Check out what the dude had to say below…

We had our last 2 shows in Europe in Paris and Luxembourg. 2 killer fuckin shows! I would like to say that Paris might be holding the title for the most kickass crowd we have ever had. About 4000 fists pumping and fucking shit up! So much energy in that room. We made a crowd cam video of the show so you can check it out for yourself. Its called “A night in Paris 2” Its sorta like an unofficial sequel to the Paris Hilton sex tape.

Last Night we played our first show ever in UK in Portsmouth. So far we are pretty excited about the UK. We have been told soo many badass stories about the people there.. legend says that there are no crowds that rock harder. Last night was a nice little taste but the crowds are not always the most important… Paris may currently hold the title for best crowd but UK is currently holding the “hot girl” title. Everywhere we go there all kinds of beautiful bitches runnin wild! And I mean that in the most respectful way possible. All these different accents make me want to stay over in this motherfucker and never go back to the states! Or maybe ill just stuff a few of them in my suitcase and bring them with me.

We were confirmed for a new UK tour very soon. We cannot announce it yet but it will be amazing and it will be the biggest baddest fucking thing we have ever done! So excited. I sometimes wonder how we get these opportunities.. we are only decent musicians.. its probably just the way we look. We are usually voted “best looking band in the world”. Its a poll that our parents and closest friends put together every year. Which reminds me, we were actually nominated for a METAL HAMMER Golden Gods award for “best new band” You should all follow this link and vote for us. We are sick of winning “best looking band”. We want to win something else for a change! 🙂

We love you Fuckers! Cant wait to meet more of you on the road! We will kill it together!
