Thursday:

We played 02ABC2 in Glasgow. The night started off with a lack of audience during Uneven Structure`s show, but during Blood Commands show the place was packed! Had a great time!

Friday:

After a rough boat trip back to England we finally got to London and played 02 Academy Islington. The place was packed, must have been at least 500 attending. After the show we met a couple of guys from Music Export Norway, said goodbye to Line, and went out for a beer before buss call.

Tuesday:

We played at Whelans in Dublin and had a really great time. Thanks for everyone who came out and to all of you who had traveled a long way to see our show. It means alot to us! Thanks to the Reinkarnated Tattoo Shop guys who came out to the show we had a blast with you. 

Wedensday:

Played in Manchester at the Academy (all musichalls in the UK are called “Academy-something” it seems) It was awesome to meet and greet our fans there. We love you! LMFAO played the same house so Otto and Andersen went to see their show after ours. Awesome crazy stuff! 

Today we are in Glasgow, Scotland and have met up with our buddies in Enslaved who also plays here tonight. We´re on different stages at the same time so it´s going to be a battle. haha..

Otto with the guys from LMFAO, our busses stood parked at the same spots, so we met them after the show.

Day 4-6:

Saturday: 

Our show at the O2 Academy in Birmingham turned out to be awesome!!! Thanks to everyone who came out to the show and gave us shout outs during and after the concert. We met up with Simons sister; Mariann and her friends before the show. Great gang! Had a quick look-around in the city. Beautifull! Our manager; Line Kleppe came on the tour in birmingham and gonna travel with us all UK dates

Sunday:

Playing sunday-shows isn´t something that we´re too used to with this lineup. So playing Sheffields; “Corporation” with a hung over band in front of a hung over audience isnt the most energic thing we´ve done, but good alltogether. Got the best Chilli Con carne cooked by ex-Tromsø/now english promoter. Thanks a lot!

Monday:

We took the boat from England to Dublin, Ireland and had a day off. Line and Silje went shopping and the boys got tour tattoos at the “Reinkarnated” tattoo shop in Dublin. Great shop and artists and shout outs to Dublins own; “20 bullets Each” who´s bassplayer own this shop! (Sigurd took his first tattoo ever!). A lame supermario mushroom (!?) Which is the logo for the Access All Areas card for this tour.

Tonight we play Whelans in Dublin! See you there.

Day 1-3:

BC got up at the Flesland Airport in Bergen 4:30 in the morning (!) to catch our flight to Frankfurt (wich had their workers on strike) We had a little bit of hell trying to get our stuff sendt on the plane, but it was sorted out in the end (at last) We caught up with our tourbus and the Protest The Hero crew at the Frankfurt airport. Pure luxury this one and PTH are good fellas. NoFX had the bus right before us, so Fat Mike left us a whole bottle of Bombay Gin as a present. Thanks Mike! We drove to Stuttgart, Germany to play the first show. Good crowd, but we only did a OK show. Simon had some troubles with the bassamp, wich we fixed the next day. 

Thursday we played Antwerpen Belgium wich was awesome! Met up with some good guys traveling all the way from Spain to catch the show. Tried some Belgian famous waffles. (Wich wasn´t really our thing. Cool it with the sugar Belgium!) But loved the place and the crowd and can´t wait to come back!

Friday we played in Cardiff, Wales inside some kind of mall. We could only play 6 songs this show because we where cut of by some misunderstanding in the time schedual. We got to meet some new friends and had a great time!

Tonight we play Birmingham, UK at the O2 Academy 2. Show starts at 7:00 PM! See you there.
