Hello everybody. Welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of 3D In Your Face and The Midnight Devils. I hope you enjoyed the tour break. I sure did but I have to tell you it didn't feel quite right. Not seeing those smiling faces singing back at me sure makes you miss it all that much more. As I sit here tonight fresh out of Midnight Devil rehearsal I am so very optimistic about the future and I wont lie at the same time terrified. I suppose that means we are doing something right. I've always said really good Rock n Roll is always dangerous and always unpredictable. That's how you know it's from the heart if it's not tied up in a nice little package. We sit here today on the brink of a new tour, on the brink of a new band, and on the brink of something that isn't set by the numbers. This Saturday night Sniper and I along with Jeremy "The Playboy" Deans will be taking the leap of faith into the unknown along with a very special guest. We will be kicking off our new tour "Unrest in the Midwest" with a headlining show at Sandy's Bar and Grill in Nebraska City, NE. This is one of those shows that people always talk about. I remember my first show with 3D In Your Face all those years ago. Now we are asking all of you to be there for the first Midnight Devils full scale rock n roll party. I feel everything we have done has been leading up to this point. The acoustic tours were just a warm up for things to come. We are going to take this thing to the next level to say I'm not a bit nervous would be an understatement. There are two things that put me at ease in this whole situation. First and most importantly I know that Sniper has my back and I have his. Having your best friend standing on stage right next to you in the thick of it brings a certain level of clarity. Secondly I know we are backed by the most amazing fans in the world. No matter what the band is called I know in the bottom of my heart that you are more than fans, you are family. We are walking into this hurricane together and that feels a hell of a lot better.
Being in a band is tough. It's hard work and long hours. You already know all this. It's how you handle this stress that really shows if you've got what it takes. My idea with the acoustic tours was to keep the momentum going. I wanted to keep us out on the road doing what we do best. Now we have ourselves set up for a full fledged rock n roll circus. It makes me nervous as hell but if you aren't nervous going into a situation like this it's time to get out. After this kick off show in Nebraska City on Saturday night, we will be announcing the rest of the shows for this tour. We want Saturday to be something special, something that everyone will walk away from with their jaws on the ground. It feels like we are running a marathon and Sunday morning come 1 AM, I want to know that I left it all out on that stage. We had a great rehearsal last night. We will have one final rehearsal tonight and then there's nothing left to do but pray and practise lyrics. I want to thank everyone that has helped us get to this point. All the late night phone calls, all the text messages asking for advice, all the help from the club owners, and the unending support of our fans. This music is who we are and this show is a celebration of life. After all the drinking and the drugs nothing even comes as to this feeling. Thank you all for getting us here. Now it's time for us to take the torch and make something great happen. Buckle up baby it's about to get a bit bumpy.
