Chimaira Music As A Weapon Tour Blog: Doing Shots With Disturbed

(antiMusic) Chimaira are currently out on the road on the Music As A Weapon Tour. Guitarist Matt DeVries wants to keep antiMusic readers up to date on all the happenings on the tour and will be checking in with a tour diary. Here is his latest entry:

Well, I have to say, this has been some of the most fun I have ever had on a tour. All the bands are mad cool, the shows have been some of the biggest and best we have ever played, and the fans have been amazing! This week was also very special because our new CD "The Infection" is finally in stores! Please do your best to pick one up.We are more than proud of this record and are very exited that it's out!

Now let's rewind a bit to Tuesday (The day the record came out).....We were in Bridgeport, Connecticut and the day started out with the band going to Best Buy and Target to purchase our CD. The bitter sweet news was only two of us could buy copy's, the reason was the rest were sold out. Thanks to anyone that has picked up our CD! Our fans are and have always been the best! Later on after another great show Disturbed was nice enough to let us share/have their dressing room for a CD release rager! Trust me, it was a rager! Dan from Disturbed was on shot duty and was passing out shots called "Oatmeal Cookies" to everyone on the tour. For those that don't know, an Oatmeal cookie is the kind of shot that tastes great and goes down smooth but Dan said it best when he said "After 4 or 5, you won't remember s*** tonight guys!". Rob Arnold can agree with that for sure. The last thing he remembers from that evening was shot number 5. Good times indeed. We then brought the party to our tour bus. That's probably the last thing I remember (I had 4 or 5 of those shots myself, along with a s*** ton of beer) but the photo's show good times had by all! Thanks again goes out to Disturbed, they have been more than cool to us this entire tour.

Luckily there is another month left in this tour, This is one of those tours a band never wants to end! See you on the road!
