Literally Going Around the World

Beartooth is one of Alex's favorite band. They are from OH and their song "Hated" is one that has been growing upon me - videos embedded below. Alex saw Beartooth in concert at Gabe's Oasis in April 2016. This was prior to "Hated" being released to radio and I wasn't ready to see them. Alex recorded the following videos of that Gabe's Oasis show:







Shortly after the concert, Alex began calling Ned, a cool Rock 108 DJ, and requesting Beartooth and, day after day, Ned would say that he couldn't play them. Well, now Rock 108 is blasting "Hated" fairly often.


Beartooth now have concert dates on a tour with Bring Me the Horizon and Underoath. These are some of their upcoming tour dates and I only mention it because they are literally going around the world. The following is not all of their concerts, but just meant to show what April 2017 - June 2017 is going to be like for them. They go from the Western US (4/1 - 4/8) to the Eastern US (4/28 - 5/7), play in their home state of OH at Rock on the Range, (which has Metallica in the lineup) then leave 8 days later for England, Netherlands, Germany, France, then back to Germany (5/27 - 6/03), then have 2 weeks off before they play in Australia (6/18 - 6/24), then are back in the US to join the Warped tour (6/28 - 7/1 are shown below but the tour goes on beyond that).

The thing that is so crazy is that Alex saw them at Gabe's Oasis in Iowa City in April 2016 and now, in April 2017, they are out touring with Bring Me the Horizon & Underoath. Then, they will tour the world.

Literally.

If I were them, I would take the two weeks between Germany and Australia to see other countries 'on that side' of the world. I wouldn't want to come back to the US, deal with the time zone changes, and then go from, say, OH to Australia. Since I've never traveled to 'the other side of the world' in my life (and doubt I ever will be able to), I am speculating that shifting time zones frequently is not good for your body, but I can't be certain.

Speaking of the Warped Tour, of course Alex wants to see one of their dates (listed below) in the Central US. I wonder - when did going to Chicago Open Air 2017 not enough??!?

7/18 Cuyahoga Falls, OH @ Blossom Music Center ^
