KEEP OF KALESSIN Are Tired Of SEPULTURA's Bullshit
KEEP OF KALESSIN's Obsidian C checked in on Sunday, May 22nd from the band's current tour supporting SEPULTURA alongside BELPHEGOR:
"Yesterday we played in Rochester, NY and man, the bullshit just continues on this tour.
All support bands only got five channels alltogether, which means that all we could get sound on in the PA-system was drums and one vocal. This is totally bullshit from Sepultura because when you're on a package tour like this and playing such small clubs, where some nights it's only 150-200 people, you should share the mixing console with the other bands so they are able to do a proper show!
We had to play our show with guitars and bass only on stage and we didn't have backing vocals. Because of this all bands had to crank the amplifiers on stage so loud that when Belphegor got on stage, they only managed to play half a song before the amplifier overheated from being cranked so hard all night. The audience wasn't happy about it.
The support bands and their crew are really starting to get tired of being treated like shit from the headliner. Also, while they get 3-4 meals every day we get nothing. Today we didn't even get water!!
Tonight is Belphegor's last night and we'll continue for a week more with Sepultura, HATE and NEURAXIS. Peabody's is normally a good club to play though so I think the show will be good tonight even though it's a Sunday."
Remaining dates on the tour are as follows:
24 - The Rave – Milwaukee, WI
26 - The Zoo – Winnipeg, MB
27 - The Exchange – Regina, SK
28 - Dickens – Calgary, AB
29 - Starlite Room – Edmonton, AB
31 - Rickshaw Theater – Vancouver, BC
