Someone always has to be the floating head in the back, I'm taking one for the team this time.

So here we are in Scranton, and it is an auspicious occasion because we're cancelling a show in the middle of a tour for the first time in the 11 years I've been in AFI (the end of the Sing the Sorrow run doesn't count, for those of you with detail-oriented minds).
Davey is extremely ill and so we want to give our sincerest regrets that we won't be playing tonight.
Special shout out to Creed, Meredith, Oscar, Andy, Jim, Kevin, Stanley, Pam, Dwight, Phyllis, Angela and Michael Scott.
I also wanted to thank everyone who came to our signing last night, even though Davey wasn't there. You guys are the best.
It's been fantastic being on tour again, getting to play to you after so long off the road.
Have you been enjoying the shows? Have you been enjoying Gallows?
I've been making some short videos, showing little pieces of the road, they're on afireinside.net:



I've got 2 new ones done that will be posted, and I promise I'm going to start including more of Smith.

Okay, I have an excuse this time, I'm on tour.


Speaking of which, it's been some kind of spectacular so far, playing in these smaller cities is refreshing, up close and personal, so you can smell the ripeness of our sweaty shirts.


I have to talk about the apple pie I ate last night, it looked like this:






















and it was hands down the best apple pie I've ever ate. Who would have thought I'd find it at a Hyatt in Buffalo.

Anyway, moving on.

Another occurence that took place in my hotel room:
The lamp was casting a shadow off of the fire sprinkler on the ceiling that looked exactly like a little cannon, so I drew a little cannonball coming out of it. Now when people stay in that room they'll notice a disembodied cannonball on the ceiling all day until they turn on the lamp at night and a shadow cannon appears. It'll be magical.

Our video for Medicate is done, which you're probably aware of, and it looks like this:




I'll have you know that I got several blisters shooting that.

We did a signing a few days ago and a guy had the Crash Love logo tattoed on the palm of his hand:





















So, the tour goes swimmingly, onwards we go.
