This is Tamara. Kay threw his drumsticks into the audience last night & she caught ‘em. Problem was, Raj called it one song too early so he needed them back. She pushed her way to the front of the crowd (not easy at a festival) & saved the day. These guys had been waiting 2 years to see us live & demonstrated some excellent stickering skills too.
So… why did we only have one pair of drumsticks? Here are the bizarre series of fails we had this weekend:
1. Kay put his cymbal & drumstick bag on top of the car after our Munich show on Friday. We drove off without them. He may or may not have been intoxicated when he did it.
2. Adil broke a string in the most epic part of his bass solo last night.
3. We couldn’t start the tour van after last night’s how because we left the lights on.
4. Using google maps to walk to the hotel is great if you’ve got reception. If not, you end up on a 2 hour scenic tour at 3am in the morning.
You can’t help but laugh. The shows were great & the crowds were rockin’. An awesome & very memorable weekend.
Waking up to comments like this really makes our day. Thank you Rock im Daal. We’re still buzzing! You made our roadtrip across the country totally worthwhile. #tourlife #festival #Germany (at Am Rhein)
This thing is freaking me out. And there’s no off switch. #hotelroom #tourlife #Germany (at Hotel Schwanen)
Just finished packing the van after our show at Tollwood Festival in Munich. It went off. Celebrating with some home made pizza, courtesy of the festival organisers. Score. #tourlife #Germany (at Tollwood)
Been on the road for 9 hours. Just as the midnight munchies begin to set in, we see this. Damn you strategically-placed-autobahn-junkfood. Must. Resist. #tourlife #Germany (at A7)
These Polish club owners made Sunpilots paper planes to promote our gig in their town. The crowd was throwing them around the room while we played. Very cool.
They also let us crash at their place afterwards. Great guys & really supportive of independent music.

We were busking in the park. Till it started raining. Now we’re hiding in the park.
And, no kidding, we were playing a song called ‘Rain’ when it started.
