yesterday Good Reason sent me a magazine article that mentioned our show in their country! pretty cool…its just a small article that says that we’re coming to play…check out in our press section – of course its not in English, but the Good Reason dude helped translate it…hahahaha…he also said that their MIGHT be a chance that we’re going to be doing some TV interview when we arrive their tomorrow…pretty cool!

so that’s it guys…this tour we’ve been talking about for almost 7 months…its finally happening…we’re finally leaving tonight to go to beautifully historic world of Europe. the guys in KLC don’t even know that this tour almost got cancelled two months ago because lots of European bars cancelled all our shows because they were scared that because we’ve never been to Europe that no one would come to the shows. the Good Reason guys were really upset and felt sorry but i just said, “dude – we’ll figure something out – keep trying!” and 2 months later, we have 6 shows booked and are going over! :-) see – that’s what hardcore has taught me…never give up – there’s always a way…

thanks to everyone who have wished us the best of luck on this tour! i bumped into the Attention to Piss guys last night and they were so happy for us! :-) i love HK bands – such great people…

okay guys and girls…this will be our last post until i get back from the tour on Monday February 6!!! we’ll hopefully be posting information on our forum so please check that page out!!! SEEYA!!!

EUROPE – HERE WE COME!!!

yeah this week has been madness in terms of work, getting stuff ready for the tour, getting stuff ready to put more CD’s in stores after work…its nuts…i’m actually looking forward to being on a plane with NOTHING to do but sleep. last night Pong and i went to RR to drop off more CD’s and i picked up the brand Good Clean Fun album!!! ITS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FUNNY!!! easily one of my favorite hardcore bands on this planet…they just make hardcore FUN – super positive hardcore…i also picked up the August Burns Red CD finally…that is some amazing metal-hardcore…for fans of all the metal-core stuff that has come out lately – this is easily one of my favorites…a bit too many mosh parts…but still cool…

i’m borrowing my girlfriends ipod mini for the tour – and i think i’ve fallen in love. (no – i fell in love with my girlfriend a long time ago – i’m talking about ipod! :-) i just can’t believe this little thing can store SO MANY damn CD’s…its crazy…i love it – i think i’m going to have to get one when i get back…

we’re traveling to europe with one pair of pants, one pair of shorts, two pairs of wool socks, and lots of t-shirts! hahahaha…that’s how ghetto we are…okay…going to bed…seeya…

no no no…this is obviously not the new KLC site…i just fixed it up so it looked a little bit more orderly. not that it is any more orderly now – i still can’t seem to get rid of stuff. so we’ve actually distributed a HUGE number of our CD’s out! its weird and kind of cool how fast we can get rid of CD’s! :-) hahahaha…

our good friend Simonn (punk Simonn) is leaving for Australia in a couple days…and he gave me the best compliment for our new CD. he said that when he gets homesick when he’s in Australia he will always listen to our CD…to me that’s a HUGE compliment – we are proud to be a band from Hong Kong…this is our home, our heart…our lyrics are based out of our thoughts of Hong Kong and its life, culture, and issues.

day after tomorrow we get on the LONG LONG plane ride to Vienna, Austria. none of us have ever been to Europe…and we can’t wait to get there!!! its going to be weird…its going to be culture shock for sure. hopefully the people at the shows will welcome us with open arms! :-) we’ve already gotten emails and messages on our Myspace page from people in Germany, Austria and the Slovak Republic of really nice people that are wishing us the best of luck on the tour! its going to be great to play out there…

ming figured out a way to get 30 seconds of one of our songs from our Under One Flag CD to be played on the radio! woohoo!! hopefully it’ll all work out…

oooh…the government says they’re going to do something about all those ANNOYING promotions we get on our mobile phones and SMS’s!! I HATE THOSE THINGS SO MUCH!!! the worst is when you’re in the middle of doing something really important (like taking a crap in the bathroom) and you go crazy to get your phone and when you finally pick it up – its an annoying computer recorded promotion!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! so annoying…

okay anyway…check out this really important message on our brothers in Malaysia’s label Dyslexia Records about a show that took place on new year’s eve in Malaysia. apparently, the police raided the show because they thought that all the kids at the show were Satanists (people who worship satan) and the kids were all on drugs. so the police raided the place and arrested over 300 kids! our of ALL the kids – only 3 or 4 were found to be high on drugs. the rest of the kids were straight edge…it wasn’t a black/metal show like the police thought…it was just a hardcore show.

one week from today – King Ly Chee will be Bratislava, Slovakia playing our very FIRST show in Europe!!! WE CAN’T WAIT!!!
