This week we continue our Slam Dunk 2018 festival preview with Comeback Kid taking on our brand new festival A-Z challenge!
Conne Island in Leipzig Germany always does my head in with their amazing meals and artist treatment.
All four times that we have played Resurrection Festival in Veviero, Spain have been the most bonkers for us. Groezrock in Belgium and Hellfest in France also rule for us.
Dying to get back to THIS IS HARDCORE again one of these years. We just always seem to fully book up in Europe a year in advance, before we know the dates!
ALL IN A YEAR the very first CBK song, I think came incredibly naturally.
This last year at Resurrection turned my crank pretty hard.
I’d like to perform the songs from our last record “Outsider” with the actual guests that are on the record! Devin Townsend or Chris Cresswell from The Flatliners in particular.
For me, it’s the heat when the air conditioning stops working. It can get a bit much for a guy like me. I just keep searching for ice and a fan to sit beside.
The first person I think about here is Jeremy. I’ve never seen someone drive as many hours, and be dedicated as him. We’ve done trips from the east to the west coast and he would drive 90% of a 60 hour trip. I also really admire his veganism and ability to retain knowledge and information.
We like to razz each other a lot; usually its stupid nicknames and fake yelling at each other. Some of mine are usually derived from my nickname Goose: Gus, Goont, Les, Lumbering Andy or Big A, to name a few.
I’m always searching for those fans with the water spray in them. I heat up baby.
60 hours to start a tour.
Summer Breeze I believe one year. It honestly looked like District 9 in the gen pop area, how muddy everyone was. Luckily most people were smart enough to buy rubber boots. NOT ME.
No new bands I can see that I would say I love. I’ll try to see Jimmy Eat World though.
I met Mike Herrera the last time we played Slam Dunk. He was with Goldfinger. I bought him a drink and sweated him pretty hard as MxPx was one of the first bands I really got into as a young kid. So given the type of fest it is, give me a throwback MxPx set. Or Rancid.
I really enjoyed the Dropkick Murphys at Resurrection last summer.
Anything “favourite” and when I have to draw a memory from blank, I find that a bit difficult.
I guess it’s cool for a band like us because we stand out as maybe the only HC band on the bill. It’s fun to be one of the hardest at the festival.
The Chemical Brothers at Pukkelpop festival was INSANE.
The variety of bands I would never be able to see otherwise.
I haven’t camped in ages.
I was arrested and went to jail in Serbia at EXIT festival for a small hash spliff. Undercover cops got me at the reggae tent. I missed The Prodigy that night, so that sucked.
A festival in Brazil, Columbia, or anywhere in SE Asia.
This year looks fine to be.
Me, but it’s nothing that a couple vodka / sodas can’t help with.
