Channer – We are blessed to do this. I don’t say that trying to be cliche. I really do feel blessed to share our music and our art with people. Rock fans do it best though. Hershey, PA turned up for your boys. We rode rollercoasters after. Shit was dope.
Channer – Jamba from the HU is a madman, they’re all actually pretty wild characters. We’ve had some wicked nights with these dudes.
I was caught up in the tour blues in Pittsburgh and dude came and hung out with me. Even though they barely speak English and we speak no Mongolian we’ve been able to connect with these guys. We’ve become decent homies.
Channer – Jameson does what I guess most people wish they could do on tour. The dude goes fishing!! My guy will find a fishing spot anywhere. Always out here “ripping lips.”
Channer – So, I’m a casual baseball fan that’s been to a handful of games in my life. How the hell have I been to not one, but two Chicago Cubs games this tour? Best of the two was definitely at Wrigley Field. So yeah, here we are at Wrigley Field. Go Cubbies.
Channer – We learned about Chester’s passing on tour and Kobe’s passing as well, so I had to throw some love to an OG. The Coolio passing hit hard. RIP, forever living in a gangster’s paradise.
Channer – Chopping it up with my guy Richie our drummer in LA. Notice the Kobe Shirt. Yup, we played LA on 8/24, Kobe day, so again me showing love to a one-of-a-kind generational talent.
Channer – Now you see this man here? That’s Drew our guitar player, aka White Claw God. Another dope shot from LA.
