What was your highlight of 2008?
My personal highlight of 2008 was the Through The Noise tour with Misery Signals, Comeback Kid, Bane, Shai Hulud, Outbreak and Grave Maker. It was such a great time having a handful of some of my favourite bands all on one tour. Every night was a party.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
Nothing really. haha, I had pretty good luck this year (knock on wood). I’m bummed I missed the Hot Water Music reunion show in Chicago.

2008 into 2009: Bury Your Dead

What was your highlight of 2008?
Definitely the amazing tours we’ve been a part of. 5 Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Machine Head, Hell Yeah, Parkway Drive just to name a few. Touring and becoming friends with these bands is priceless.

What was the lowlight of 2008?
Ha ha! That’s easy. We flipped our old van four times driving into Canada and we were all hospitalised. I was driving so for me it was the one of the worst things I’ve ever been through. As soon as we stopped I thought I had killed my best friends and bandmates. So note to self: vans make horrible roller coasters.
