After two massive shows in South America we weren't sure what to expect as the "Join The Army / Déjà Vu Tour" kicked it off in Reno NV on the 15th, but all I can say is first two SxTx gigs have been nothing short of f*#king insane! The Reno crew were wild and crazy, with a fast flowing circle pit forming right from the start, and running right to the end. It's been awesome seeing the pace of the band now, the new set list is a wicked thing, and has to be heard to be believed, seriously it's so sick, and it is bringing the absolute best out in everyone. The re-invented tracks like "Possessed To Skate" and "Suicidal Maniac" have been blowing peoples minds, Clark has been on fire! Big thanks to the Reno crew and their hospitality, we had a great show.
Next stop was Portland OR, and the famous old Roseland Theatre, and holy f*#k what a show! The paint was nearly peeling off the walls, a huge amount of energy from the band and the crowd, it seems the front row is getting heavier and heavier, but still, there's room enough for a few of the newer little cycos to chill and take it all in. It's great to see the new generation of SxTx fans signing up to Join The Suicidal Army, love seeing the groms go hard. Big ups to Greg for lending us his amp, thanx mate! If these two shows are any indication then this is going to be a HUGE tour, bordering on out of control, some of the absolute best SxTx I've ever seen in my life!
