Tour wrapup. Haarlem and Best

Tour wrapup. Haarlem and Best

We should have written a blog yesterday, but we just didn’t get around to it. But today we should, so here it is. As has been the tradition this tour, parents of bandmembers of bands have been visiting our shows. It seemed to be Andrath’s turn this time. His mom visited the Place 2B in Haarlem. Do try the burgers there, they are something else. All in all a nice gig, even though carrying all the gear into the venue was a bit of a hassle with stairs going up and down, but we managed.

The gig in Best was good and a nice closing of the tour. Nekron went unplugged for a short while, and Andrath broke his E string in the last part of Upheaval, which didn’t stop the show. After some reshuffling of luggage and some goodbyes, the RÁN crew said goodbye to the other bands.

So, now the tour has come to an end. It was an adventure. Many thanks to all the bands and people that worked with us to make all of it happen. We’ve made many friends and shared many moments. All and any of you have been awesome.

Take care and Hail,

Andrath

Tour Diary. Day off and The Hague

Sorry for not writing a blog yesterday. It’s been a bit hectic arranging transport for all people now that the RTA crew has said goodbye. But we managed it in the end. Yesterday’s gig at Musicon was like going home again. We had a great gig, the bands were awesome as always, and the crowd was stellar.

Right now we’re packing for Haarlem. Be sure to check out our facebook for the event, and hell, maybe show up? We would appreciate that. 🙂

Also, we have brought cassette tapes this time as well. Our apologies to Alex from Zwaertgevegt for forgetting to bring them along on tour. The new Rock to Hell album isn’t on tape just yet, a situation we will rectify as soon as possible.

Take care and Hail,

Andrath

Bambi Galore was awesome. Thanks to Serpent’s gift for supporting us, and a big thank you to the crew of Bambi for the awesome venue and support. The crowd was great, heads were banging and the shows were awesome.

We’re on our way to the Netherlands now. No shows tonight. Today we drive and settle in for a bit because we have to say goodbye to the RTA crew and we travel on our own steam towards the final 3 shows.

Kris, Daki and Milan, you have been wonderful traveling companions and great help during this tour. We of RÁN would like to extend our deepest gratitude, this thing wouldn’t have happened without you.

And with that I’ll sign off until the next entry.

Hail,

Andrath

Tour Diary. Grünau and Hamburg

Tour Diary. Grünau and Hamburg

We arrived at The Oberer Gasthof in Grünau, near to Chemnitz and we were greeted by the owners Thomas and Falko. We then proceeded to collectively shake the place on it’s foundations. Krulli from Exile got everyone to sign a discarded and unused China and donated it to the place. Many shots of vodka and rabarberscnapps followed with copious amounts of beer. After a somewhat chilly nights rest we wolfed down breakfast and we proceeded with a 5 hour drive to Hamburg.

As it stands now, we’re soon to arrive at Bambi Galore. Please check us out if you are in the area. If you don’t, you’re missing out, as many have told us when they kinda regretted not bringing their friends after being rocked by us.

So, see you in Hamburg! Bring your friends!

Hail,

Andrath

Tour diary. Wroclaw and Grünau

Tour diary. Wroclaw and Grünau

Yes, it’s criminally early. But we’re off to sunny Germany now. Last night’s gig was sparse with visitors, but the ones that did show up got quite a show. I guess football matches seem more important than watching some great bands play, but oh well. We had fun on stage regardless, and it doesn’t matter if we’re playing for 5 or 500 people (wishful thinking, hehe).

So, next up we’ll be making the Oberer Gasthof Grünau shake on it’s foundations.

See you in Germany!

Hail,

Andrath.

So. Much. Beer. The gig at the Voodoo club turned some heads. After Incinerator cancelled, we were left without an audience and ticket sales. We also discovered that no promotion whatsoever had been done. So we decided to forego the tickets. The local barmaid did some last minute callouts and some people did show up, and we managed to blow them away in typical RÁN fashion.

Despite the setbacks, still a great night. We will definitely return.

So, we’re on our way to Wroclaw now. We have good hopes for this gig. It would be nice if we stood in front of a full house again.

See you in Wroclaw!

Tour diary. Radomsko and Warsaw

We had a great night’s sleep in Radomsko (which was the unknown place in Poland eventually). We’re on our way to Warsaw now to our new accomodation and tomorrow we will play Voodoo club. Did you know the Polish roads are pretty much crap? The scenery is beautiful though, but the traffic can drive you mad (get it?). Anyway, watch our Facebook for all the shenanigans and hijinks, and we’ll see you guys in Warsaw!

Oh, the stuff in the picture is Pierogi. It’s pretty good.

Take care and Hail!

The Presov gig was cancelled, so we’re off for the day. The gig in Trinec was awesome. The stage and monitoring were top notch, and all the bands did some great performances. It’s amazing what bands can accomplish when everything is just right.

So now we’re roaming across the Polish countryside to a hotel (no idea where). In the meantime, we stuffed ourselves with pork.

So, after these few days off we’re off to the voodoo club in Warsaw this Sunday to shake it off it’s foundation.

See you out there!

Hail,

Andrath

Tour diary. Budapest and Konská

We’re on the road again after a short night in Budapest. A downside of touring is that you don’t always get the chance to see the sights and meet the people. But let’s hope we get the chance to enjoy the Czech republic. 500+ kilometres to drive. On to the next stage!

Oh, we also just got wind that the Presov gig was cancelled by the venue itself for reasons unknown to us. Our apologies to our Slovak fans for this.

See you around!

After a nice rest in Osijek, we’re now on our way to Hungary. We visited a music shop to stock up on things (strings, picks, etc). Andrath gifted Nekron some fresh bass strings.

Looking forward to see the sights in Budapest and play S8.

We will miss Croatia and it’s many lovely sights and beers.

See you around!
