We are now home from our tour supporting the legendary Chris Holmes and his Mean Man band. We had a fantastic time, it was great to play both South and North Wales, Scotland, the Northeast of England, West Anglia, London, and the Northwest of England on the run. We appreciate everyone who came out and supported the shows, as well as those of you who took the time to watch us play.
We are happy to report that due to exceptionally tight budgeting on our end, combined with merchandise sales and performance fees, we have made a profit on this tour, and the first profit we have ever made from touring in Kaine! We sold out of all our tour t-shirts, as well as Reforge The Steel t-shirts, and a check of the Second Coming designs, leaving our stocks depleted. Out of the CDs we took on tour, we only had one copy of our album After Extinction left after the run. We have also had requests for orders come through since yesterday from people who had seen us live wanting to purchase more items.
Finally, we thank SD Entertainment for arranging us as the support for this tour, Chris and Sarah Holmes for their support and guidance, and of course the other members of the Mean Man band, Florian, Chuck, and Steve all of whom were brilliant players and people to be around. Also we would like to thank Alex Smith (our everything guy) and Charles Franklin (our tech) for all their hard work during this tour, which made our lives so much easier. We couldn’t operate without these guys.
