One Hundred Days Delivery Update
I’ve said it before but I’ll make a point of it again, a huge thanks to everyone who pledged their support in our Indiegogo for the release of One Hundred Days. I didn’t expect it to do so well, and I (still) regularly get comments about the trailer, so thankyou for that. ...

WORLD TOUR #9 : UK
Touring the UK is something I’ve spent a fair amount of time doing the last few years. From barebones in a van with just myself and a band in C-market towns, up to in a bus in the larger A-market Academy venues; anyone who’s done this even once gets the jist of it. There’s ...

WORLD TOUR #8 : EUROPE
Despite being back from Europe for a number of days, I’ve failed to find time to blog took a few days off before the UK tour began, so only just getting up to speed updating this. Had a number of people tell me they’d been reading these over the last week, so thankyou very ...

WORLD TOUR #7 : AUSTRALIA > NORTHERN EUROPE
Before returning to familiar shores, the last few days of our Australian adventure were spent in one of my favourite cities of the tour, Melbourne. As per all our time with The Amity Affliction in their home country, we were very well looked after and the 12th floor hotel suite gave me an ...

WORLD TOUR #6 : AUSTRALIA
Arriving in Brisbane, the scale of a large westernized city was a significant change to the past few weeks. This echoed in the scale of the tour also, with The Amity Affliction’s massive popularity and number one charting record, extra dates added across the tour due to demand. We would ...

WORLD TOUR #5 : NEW ZEALAND
As island dots appeared out the plane window 4 days ago our first sight of New Zealand appeared, unknown territory for both myself and the band. We landed in Auckland, on the tip of the North Island, and felt immediately closer to familiar lands. Despite being the furthest away from the UK any ...

WORLD TOUR #4 : SOUTH EAST ASIA [2]
After the success of the previous South East Asia shows, the 2 shows in Bali came as much of an unknown. Our first stop in Jakarta demonstrated the diversity of the countries surrounding; the area around the venue felt like what I imagined India to look like, a mass of scooters and ...

WORLD TOUR #3 : SOUTH EAST ASIA [1]
Finally putting together my thoughts on the last week in South East Asia – I’m currently in Melbourne Airport waiting on our connecting flight to Auckland, New Zealand. It’s an overnight flight with a 4hr layover in between, so hopefully I’ll be able to get enough sleep ...

WORLD TOUR #2 : HONG KONG
Writing this at 30000ft on our Air Asia flight towards Bangkok, I’ll attempt to summarise an incredible last few days in Hong Kong. After a very interesting week in China previously, we were all intrigued as to how much/if Hong Kong would feel more Westernised, and how the landscape would ...

WORLD TOUR #1 : CHINA
After an exhausting 20 hour journey, I met the band at Beijing airport. We had 2 days off before the fist show, and were all keen to explore the city and surroundings of a country none of us had visited before. In the blog posts forthcoming over the next few months, I’ll try to ...
