Hey Dude,
Just got back from seeing Kris play an acoustic show here in my hometown Adelaide, South Australia. I was lucky enough to have a chat to him before and after the show.
Just wanted to wish you luck with the upcoming Misfits covers and South Africa Tour.
I'll see you when you're down under when the new record is done.
All the best,
Hector.
