I'd imagine this was a joke, but in all fairness, isn't that really fucking cool? Dude is going to Japan playing in a band. I know most everyone reading this isn't a Handguns fan (I remember seeing a guitarist, or bassist or someone say something rude to someone on here), but shit, he's seeing places at 18 that I'll probably never see in my whole life.
Agreed. I think many life lessons are learned while on the road.
He is a resourceful kid that has already played in 40 States if not more.
A Re-Cap of his first few months out of High School.
Late July- August - 2 1/2 Week Tour for I Was A Hero, Doses (He booked himself with zero shows cancelled)
September - October Full US Tour with Handguns, FCC, SC
November - Full US Tour with Handguns, SetItOff
December - Japan Tour with Handguns
January - 3 Week Tour with Bellwether, No Good News, I Was A Hero.
February - Home (writing)
March - UK Tour with Senses Fail and Handguns.
April & May - Tours are booked - TBA
After that he will be gone all summer as well.
He has already proven to his peers (other bands) he has what it takes to tour.
He will find his place in all this. I'm proud of him thus far.
