Video Hype Van Life Part I
  • Back in June the whole crew went on a good old fashioned demo tour across the US to hype up the Pretty Sweet video. You can read a real article about it in the new Thrasher that's out now, and there's gonna be a bunch of video episodes on their site. Here's a bunch of photos that weren't in the article. This is our posse when we set sail. Not too shabby.

  • When you have a couple hour demo, followed by a four hour signing that ends around midnight, the van ride ends up feeling kind of like this. For full effect stare at this photo for 5 hours and play Chief Keef on repeat as loud as possible. "I can't stay sober."
