Gearing Up

It's starting to sink in.

In just about two weeks, Tyler Ward's next European tour will commence. It's officially time to gear up and get ready.

Rehearsals start this week with a new guitar player. There will be new team members on the management side of things, as well. But, perhaps most importantly of all, there will be brand new music to perform.

I've also had the pleasure of getting to hear the final mix downs of the first 6 tracks of Tyler's new album, and it's not at all hyperbole to say that I'm more than excited to get to play the tunes for the fans. I don't think anyone is quite ready for what Tyler's getting ready to drop next week. Our fearless leader's done a great job at capturing himself on his first original album: the songs sound like Tyler and not like Tyler trying to sound like someone else. There are plenty of trademark elements and little surprises on the tracks, but I feel like if I say anything more, I'll get fired, so I'll digress.

So, until we get on the plane for Copenhagen, it's time to get to work. Equipment's got to get bought, songs that I played on a few months ago need to get relearned, and the band's got to construct a whole new show. But what a show it'll be.

I was excited enough when I got to say in February, "I'm going to tour in Europe." Never thought I'd get to say less than a year later,"I'm going to tour Europe again."

Can't. Wait.
