Tour Update

hello all, just checking in with an update. we all had a blast on the last little run of the tour. we seem to bring the "bad" weather wherever we go so that proved to be trying as far as the drives and such. but all in all fun times were had by all. after a short holiday break spent at home we packed up again for what turned out to be a glorious 25 hour drive down here to fort meyers, florida (ouch). tonight will be the first night of this little run and we expect nothing but good things. the first few shows are with sevendust, then with allyria, and finally with dear enemy. all great guys and we look forward to our time spent with them. there should be another little "tour diary" video going up over at very soon. everybody thank phil for putting these together. it has been fun documenting our times. hope you enjoy them... well, thats about it for now. have a wonderful and safe new years and we hope to see you out at a show soon. take care all. - mike
