First impressions of Finland

Our first impressions of Finland are really good. It’s warm, people are nice and Tampere seems to be a fine city. We were picked up at the airport by our band contact, a friendly woman who is going to drive us to Helsinki at 6 tomorrow morning. Poor girl.

We just exited the wonderful sauna situated on the ground floor at our hotel. After my fifth bucket of water on the oven, Stian and Adrian escaped the room and jumped straight into the swimming pool. Another second and they would have become fried raisins. The venue here is cool, it’s situated just across the street from our hotel. We successfully had our soundcheck and then enjoyed a meal in the restaurant. We are now heading back there after our little spa treatment here at the hotel. There is, just as we were told, a sauna situated at the backstage area as well. We look forward to a great nachspiel in there together with OP:L Bastards and Name The Pet.

Until the next update, take it easy with these photos from our trip so far:




Yours sincerely,
