Andy just pointed this out to me - 10 years since the @brandnewrock/KD&GDB/@manchesterorchestra tour.
The Braccos, Margaret & Carey not pictured; the GDB swapped out halfway through that trip. But Russell, Skinner, Strand & Brian Pearl are.
Very formative experience, serious pivot moment, still in some respects the most memorable tour I've done - it was just the timing, the moment in so many of the people's lives. So much transition; it felt like a summer camp or carnival atmosphere. So much happened during, and so much more happened because of it. Right before this tour started, I got dropped by Capitol Records. I don't think it is an exaggeration to say this tour rescued and redirected my career, and made me feel like I was part of a bigger thing. In some ways wherever I am now feels like it (re)started here.
I think this was in Houston. Xo.
