Eskimo Callboy: Fight to Unite Tour Blog (EXCLUSIVE)
Hailing from Germany, Eskimo Callboy invaded U.S. record stores this past November with the release of ‘Bury Me in Vegas,’ their debut album. Signed to the mighty Earache Records, Eskimo Callboy specialize in a style of metal they call “electrocore.” It’s fitting since their energetic take on metalcore has elements of EDM coursing through its veins.
Eskimo Callboy is currently on the ‘Fight to Unite 2013′ U.S. tour along with Kottonmouth Kings, Deuce, Dizzy Wright, and Snow Tha Product.
Noisecreep has partnered with the group to bring a series of exclusive tour blogs. Below is the first installment!
From Eskimo Callboy:
6 guys, 1 bus and a loooot of beer. That’s how the good stories start.
Especially when you’re German.
So, here we are. We just reached the first city of this years Fight To Unite Tour one evening before tour starts.
It’s the first time ever for all of us to be in the U.S. And you don’t have to be informed about that.
You just can tell by the way we’re entering the hotel to spend the first night in.
Our jaws almost hit the floor. Everything is just so big. Big burgers, big cars, big highways and hell yeahhh… big boobs! I mean, the thing with this first impression of the boobs is that it came from the short encounter with this lovely old lady at the hotel pool. But things will get better we guess!
After having our first American breakfast (we loooove this sweet rolls under country gravy) we put our stuff in the trailer and get ready to drive to the first venue.
The Rialto Theatre in Tucson, Arizona is calling.
So we arrive at the venue and there it is again… another big thing!! It’s the bus of the Kottonmouth Kings.
The engine seems to be off, but there are still some kind of exhaust fumes coming out of it.
At first we were quite nervous, cause we are the only rock band on this rap tour! But after the first meeting with the kings we felt completely welcomed! All of our worries were gone since all the guys on tour are really nice and outgoing.
The first show of the tour was awesome. As we saw the venue begin to get filled up we knew that we were ready to rock this place. Despite our doubts the crowd seemed to enjoy our set.
It was so fun seeing a lot of hip hop guys with baggy tees and pants rocking out to our music. This is exactly what the Fight To Unite Tour is all about, to bring together different genres of music and groups of people. And it totally worked out.
We can’t wait for the upcoming shows!!
