It’s totally tough. Eat a Starbucks turkey bacon breakfast sandwich again, sit on your fat ass for eight hours again, drink an entire bottle of red wine before 7pm again…I’m thinking of getting a Thighmaster for the van. Like, Shake Weights and Thigh Masters. And like, a crock-pot or something so that I can make vegetables and rice, but I know that in reality, they’ll just collect dust.
No, man, Lower Dens does it. We played some shows together, and they had a hot-plate in their van and all kinds of spices. We played in Knoxville, and they busted out their hot-plate, and they were cooking, like, grilled chicken and shit. So it can be done if you’re determined.You need a support group, and you need to have a plan. I’ll have the SVE band list of how to harden your ass on tour. It’ll be like, “I haven’t had an ass like this since I rode my bike every day when I was 12!”
