Let me tell you the truth

I always go on about how hard it is to tour as an emerging band, how we spend hours in a tiny van and sleep in dirty places with very few showers and zero bidets.
LIES! Those are lies, buhauhuahauhahaha!!! The truth is we are actually very rich. Music is bringing us so much money we can even buy a house in every country we play in! It’s so awesome to be rich.

Last time, it wasn’t our intention, but we had to buy a place in Belgium. It was quite a bargain, we didn’t splurge, but a TV show offered us more money than we had spent for the purchase just to take a tour of our house! It goes without saying that we accepted. Yes, we decided to show everyone our mansion and come clean about our true way of life, because hiding and playing poor wasn’t fun anymore. You’ll find the video here below:

So, what do you think of the house? Did you enjoy the video?
To all English speakers: I’m sorry! I’m aware my English is very bad here, but that’s the best I could do. We recorded this in just one quick take the morning after FemME, before leaving to come back to Italy. We didn’t have much time, we had to pass the Gotthard Tunnel before 9PM or it would have been closed and driving up the pass is something you don’t wanna do when the journey is already 17 hours long as it is.

As stated in the final disclaimer, that obviously wasn’t our house. We were lucky to find a very good deal on AirBnB, the house was amazing and the owner was super nice. This was definitely a step up in comparison to our average abodes.


Where will we end up next? I’ll keep you posted!

Take care,


Metal Female Voices Fest XII

Last weekend we went to Belgium and played at Metal Female Voices Fest: if a 16 hour drive is what it takes to have such an amazing experience then give us all the kilometers you have, we’ve been largely rewarded for every ounce of sleep we didn’t take and all the backache! Well let’s not get carried away now, we wouldn’t mind an airplane, driving has been pretty tough, but at least watching the landscape changing outside the window was nice, I loved the autumn colors all around… plus, someone once told us we never paid our dues…

We got a chance to stroll around the streets of Bruxelles and we thought it was beautiful, we even ended up walking into a bois” in complete darkness… now that I think about it, what was that? How did we get there? I’m confused…
Again, it was awesome meeting new and old fans, the love and the warmth you bring us is priceless and always leave us speechless, thank you!
I think I took like a hundred pictures with you guys, maybe I was tired and looked like I had a palsy, but it was well worth holding up.
Thank you again everyone on behalf of the other bards too, we hope to see you again, maybe at one of the shows of our A New Dawn Ending Tour? 😉
