About to set off on their UK tour at the beginning of next month, The Maine decided to join the Fortitude team and write a few [impressively poetic] words for you guys to enjoy.
Over to you guys! –
Rain, rain, come my way.
Sitting in the sweltering 100 plus degree heat (32 plus for you centigraders) I can’t express how excited I am for the overcast skies and dependable rain showers the United Kingdom has in store for us in a few weeks.
If memory serves me correctly, I believe this will be our modest little band’s ninth time jumping the large pond and playing music for the pretty English people. My stoke is high to begin with, but is amplified by the fact that we are making the journey with great mates (English slang for “friends”) in fellow Arizona natives Lydia, and the only cowboy from Massachusetts Nick Santino. Seeing as our whole crew is a part of the 8123 family and given how great of a time it has been all over the world, it only seemed right we brought the 8123 tour to foggy UKland.
Shit will be hot. So work a few days, save some scratch, round up your friends and come drink a beer while you watch dudes play tunes in a live setting. In the words of Ghandi, “let’s party.”
Cheers (slang for…fuck I think it’s versatile like “aloha” or something),
– Johno & The Maine
