We’re off on a trip! It promises to be pretty huge with more dates than we’ve ever played in such a short span of time. The fact that we’re taking the road less traveled is quite exciting. The boys are really kicked about playing home towns, what with Vasu and Pavan hailing from Mysore and Sanjeev from a small town between Mangalore and Manipal! To top it, we’re heading from coast to coast, traveling cross-country from Mangalore to Chennai.

There’s going to be a lot to learn along this tour, for sure. To begin with, to keep costs down we’re doing most of the travel by road. So it’s going to be gig-travel-soundcheck-gig-travel-soundcheck-gig for most of the time. How a bunch of woozy band members will find the energy to deliver night on night is something we need to learn. After all, this is how they do it abroad. We got a small taste of it on our UK tours, but nothing quite like Indian roads and a tempo traveller for transport, eh?

Was at your Mangalore gig. It was awesome. As usual. I’ve been at the Fireflies dos for the last two years when you played. So totally enjoy listening to you, people! Way to go! (By the way, ‘Ee bhoomi swarga’ remains my favourite)
