July 4th, 2007

Hey kids,

Today we are leaving for the west coast of Canadaland to play our last show with Pride Tiger in Kelowna, BC and then kick off the cross Canada tour with Deftones and From First To Last. I'm STOCKED as well is everyone in the Die Mannequin family.

A quick re-cap of what went down last week.

We made our way to Quebec City where we were greeted with a glorious storm, nasty security guards and HUGE hills that leave your gas tank empty. But I gotta say for every bitchy security guard there are 3 extremely awesome people to make up for it. Such as the folks who let us crash at their place on their last night before moving out. And for every steep hill there is a beautiful view when you get to the top. Quebec City is a truly beautiful city.

The next day we made our way to Woodstock en Beaue. It was a really great show and a cool scene to see. Tons of people rocking out, drinking beer, camping and having fun. Some of us wanted to stay all day but we had to get back to Montreal.

We got to spend a good amount of time in Montreal and it was probably one of the busiest days we've had on tour so far. We started off Friday morning getting new gear for the band. It was really exciting for them and watching their reactions as they saw their new stuff was sweet to see.( If you thought they sounded good before wait until you hear them with the new stuff.) We then went to CKLO to do a short studio session for the Concordia radio station. The show was at foufs which is a venue for music, dancing and drinking. Always a good time at foufs!

The show in Toronto was amazing. Tony, Care and Pat were so on that night that it brought tears to some of our eyes. It was so cool to see the band play Lees Palace and get such a great reaction.

We then got a few days off to rest and charge our batteries for the upcoming tour. Check out the tour dates and we hope to see you on the road. Don't forget we got new merch so come visit me at the merch area and check it out.
