On Tour With - WHORES
US rockers WHORES have announced a huge twenty three date tour around the UK/Europe this October, and they are taking their pals Heads with them. The band talk to us about 2am drive throughs and their plans for the tour.
Are you excited about the tour? What is the best bits you look forward to when hitting the road?
We're super excited to be back in the UK and Europe! We had the best time with Big Business last year, and we're ready for our first headliner over there.
What the main tour essentials you pack and why?
Tour essentials are clean socks and boxers, downloaded podcasts, a good pair of sunglasses, a pair of Vans and a pair of Doc Martens.
What is your best tour experience?
I have to say that playing Heavy Montreal festival was super intense.Both of our tours with Red Fang were also spectacular. But my favorite times are when we are blasting a small club that's filled to capacity and when we are just sailing down the road listening to good music.
What is your worst tour experience?
Hahahaha. We tour a lot, so we've definitely had a few. Last year when we did the US headline tour, we got the van and trailer hung up on a planter at a Taco Bell drive thru in San Diego. I think it was around 2AM. We had to unload the entire trailer, unhook the trailer and roll it out of the drive thru and then wait for AAA (roadside assistance) to come out to us and tow the van out of the planter. The we reattached the trailer, re-loaded it and went on our way. Good times.
Who has the most disgusting habits on the tour bus? And what is it?
We all get along really well, so I'm sorry if I don't have anything gross to report!
What can we expect from this tour? Is there anything new in the set list?
We haven't decided on a setlist yet, but we have a little over half of the new record written, so we'll see.
If you could tour with anyone, who would it be and why?
Well Queens of the Stone Age or Mastodon would be rad. QOTSA because we're all big fans, and Mastodon because they're our homies and ATL boys as well.
WHORES head out on tour this October in support of their debut album 'Gold', which is out now. Catch them at the following dates -
