April 2016 Tour Journal Week One

OK ladies and gents, it’s that time again for my daily tour journal!

So…  Where to start? The beginning I suppose. We started our day early yesterday, doing some general maintenance to our van and trailer.  Bus call was 11am,  but in true POYNTE fashion we didn’t roll out till a half past noon… Daddy Rabbit, again…smh

TRAPT Tour Journal Second Leg (Running Posts)

Hey Everyone! Hope you are well. We thought we’d do something a little different and do a tour diary of sorts. We hope you enjoy our journey with us! Lots of photos and insight coming up!

TOUR JOURNAL REBOOT – DAY ONE (SECOND LEG): I’d like to start this entry by saying that this tour has been amazing.  The end of the first run marked the end of our time on tour with our brothers Guns Out At Sundown…  🙁 but…that’s OK,  we stole one of them!! Bwahahaha Welcome Keith Gentry, AKA Roadie, as our merch guy for this second half of the tour.  Guys, we promise that we will make sure he doesn’t starve, and try our best to keep him from wandering into traffic. He does love traffic

DAY ONE:
Today has been fun, but quite tiring. We were suppose to pack and load the trailer last night, but the storms had another plan for us. Instead we used the time to get a very solid last rehearsal in before our show in Kansas City, KS on Friday. Not loading the trailer meant we had to start quite a bit earlier than we initially planned. You never quite realize how much a band has to carry on the road until you load it at 7 in the morning. We finally got on the road about 11am or so, and headed to our bass player Ben’s house. We scooped him up and were on our way. 5 hours of riding, sleeping, joking, and more sleeping we make it to Nashville to pick up our new merch! Man it looks awesome BTW. Then we hit up a Kroger, and got stuff to cook burgers and dogs. We are all pretty damn hungry at this point haha. Now, we are headed to Beth Snoddy’s house to cook and rest before our long trip tomorrow! Catch ya’ll soon! – Matt

DAY TWO:
When I first started to type this out, my phone auto corrected the word ‘journal’ to ‘journey’… I found that to be quite fitting. Today has been mostly a lot of driving. We spent the night folding our new merch and watching the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. (which is badass) I can tell you this,
