Hello TC Family, Joel here. Just wanted to let everyone know what’s been going on these days. We’ve been keeping very busy lately and I’m quite excited about what’s to come. Being in a touring band is funny…you can be at home for a monthfeeling like you’re not really doing much at all and then BOOM you’re traveling and playing shows going nonstop with a full schedule! Right now we’re experiencing the latter and, honestly, that’s what I prefer.
So we just got back from an amazing show in Manila with our buddies The Maine and Nick Santino. Aside from the fact that Manila is always an incredible experience, we also go to be there with friends which made it such an unforgettable trip. The photo I posted is us enjoying breakfast at our hotel before some interviews. The day after we played the show (which was so much fun!), we were fortunate enough to visit a shelter and meet victims of the typhoon. We met some of the families, donated water filtration systems and played some basketball with the kids. It was a very humbling experience that really put things into perspective. Suddenly my “problems” didn’t seem like such big problems after all. I’m working on a video of our entire experience over there so that’ll be posted soon!
Now that we’re back, we’re jumping right into writing. It’s been quite some time since we last wrote but that excites me. It’s always interesting to see what comes out after that long of a break. I have faith that it will be something special.
And then we’ve got our tour in March with We The Kings! By then I’ll be stoked to get back on the road and see all of you again…and I’m sure some new faces as well!
Lots of exciting stuff coming up! We’ll try to take as many pictures and videos as we can during the whole process to keep you guys in the loop! Hope everyone’s 2014 has been great so far. Have a wonderful night TC Family! Love you all!
