Felt a little nostalgic and decided I’d write how I felt…
I cannot believe that it has already been a month since we went and embarked on our first tour outside of Colorado. The Void Tour meant so much to me. It was the celebration of our first full-length album release, the first time playing outside of our home state, Colorado, and our very first tour.
There were definitely a lot of ups and downs during the whole experience. Moments we hated each other and moments we knew we were exactly where we belong. That trial brought us closer as a band. Made us see each other through brand new eyes.
After coming back, I honestly couldn’t wait to do it again. Sure the car was cramped, we were away from loved ones, and we didn’t have many of the things that we take for granted on a day to day basis, but it was where I wanted to be.
We were on top of the world. Driving fast on the interstate. Down the longest road. Headed somewhere far away.
Also, if everything goes well (definitely crossing all my fingers and toes), we might be heading on another tour this fall. XD
Young the Giant: It’s About Time (LIVE)
Last night, Young the Giant was the musical guest on the Late Show With David Letterman. Watch the live performance of their single 'It's About Time' from the new album Mind Over Matter!
Anyone else catch it?
As many of you hopefully know now, we are releasing “The Void” at the end of next month. In light of this release we are also proud to announce Part II of the big news. Starting March 23 we begin The Void Tour! The tour kicks off at the Hi-Dive Denver. Let’s pack the joint! Stay tuned for more updates on the venues and cities will be visiting on the tour, and detail on the bands that we will have the privilege of sharing a stage with.
Bass drum pedals!
We all use them, what pedal do you use? Or what do you like the most?
I’m in love with the Jojo Mayer signature pedal by Sonor. It literally feels weightless under my foot. The action is super smooth. And as corny as it sounds it is kind of an inspiration under your foot knowing that it is designed and played by JoJo.
3:08…i lose myself. I keep rewinding it. Such a good song. _C
Favorite snare drum.
Hey all you drummers, what is your favorite snare drum you own? Is it the most expensive? Did you build it yourself? Best recording/live snare drum?
I would have to say my favorite as of right now would be my 14X5 steel shell I got in a student pack when I first learned the instrument 10 years ago. I have had it all this time and it still surprises me with what all it can do. I have been able to tune it up, tune it way down for Blind Tomorrow where the size fools everyone.
I have since sold my first drum set but have no intentions of selling my first snare drum. I am looking into holding on to this snare drum through the years and see what new characteristics come out of it as the years go on.
What is your story? Be sure to share with me I’d love to hear any stories
