Southern ℜevelation Tour † Update 7 - Brighton, UK:
When we pulled up to the Hydrant in Brighton we didn't know what to think. It was a very "punk rock" venue however, the staff were all awesome and so accommodating and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable in the conditions which we really appreciated. This show was packed wall to wall and all the bands killed it!
Got to hang with our dear friend and long time My Ruin champion, the awesome Mr Dom Lawson of Metal Hammer before the show as well as Mr Doug Rimington who photographed and filmed our set to include with the footage our girl Tor Burrow is shooting of us nightly for her documentary. We had a few technical issues but things got back on track and we delivered a blistering show that left us and everyone in the front screaming with me soaked in sweat.
The after party in the downstairs pub was a great time. The DJ Fifi Pedro Pruen rocked the rad old school hip hop for yours truly and I have never seen so many gorgeous My Ruin tattoos at one show! So lovely meeting new fans and hanging out chatting and reminiscing with all the old ones who have been to previous dates on the tour already. Thank you to my Blasphemous Girl Miss Lisa Tyrrell for the lovely silver sacred heart to go with all the other beautiful gifts you bestowed on me for my birthday in after the London show.
This tour has been a wonderful experience for me on stage nightly and having Jack Osborne and Tor with us on the road has made it a blast off stage. All the bands are so cool and really on top of their game. We could not have picked a better line up and Sanctorum are simply rock soldiers to the highest degree, bringing their brand of molton British metal nightly and then helping us "tech that shit" when we rock. We couldn't have done it without them and the most bad ass tour manager extraordinaire Terry Sly! True familia to the end with a shout out to Mick Wood and STC Touring for making this all possible and our press officer Miss Mona Miluski of Platinum-PR who is with us in spirit for all her love and hard work behind the scenes.
Looking forward to tonight we are at Leicester Square in Leicester. There will be another after show party so make sure you stay and say hello to us following our set. Rumor has it we will be meeting up with our good friend and rock photographer Andy Watson for another pre show photo session before he captures the brutality live through his lens once again for us. In the meantime, I will leave you with this awesome image of yours truly that he shot at the Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton!
