What do you do when you're not on tour?

well… in this past year i haven’t really had much more than a couple weeks to be home in-between tours, so i had a lot of free time to sort of “goof off” or “enjoy myself”

now that i will be home for an undeterminable amount of time… i will goof off, but i will have to find a new job or whatever too. i’ll be playin a lot of music as well! 

 I don’t want this to come off as an announcement, and I definitely don’t want this to seem like I am craving a pat on the back. I just need to say this for myself, and this is my blog, so what better place to do it.

When I was 17, I graduated high school early to go on tour with punk bands. I hopped in the van two weeks after I got my diploma, and haven’t really stopped touring since. It has been the only thing in my life that consistently made sense to me.

I’ve learned a whole fucking lot about myself in the past 4 ½ years. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to surround myself with incredibly inspiring people, who give their entire lives into something that means so much to me.

I’m in France right now. I am the farthest from home I have ever been, and it’s here where I decided I needed to do something about the constant aches in my stomach. I’ve hit a wall. I have waited, and pushed that ache to the back of my head for years now, and it’s recently become impossible to ignore. I need to make my own music. I need to be creative with others and make something of my own.

I’m more courageous, inspired, and angrier than I have ever felt in my life.

So I’m going home to start my own band. I’m going home to give myself the time to do that.

I don’t know how it’s going to turn out, maybe it’s a bad idea, but it’s something that I need to do. It’s time to give myself the opportunity.

Anyone in???

I did a tour with a band who opened for them about a year and a half ago, we became friends, the rest is history, etc,etc
