In this Dream Tour segment, the sludge-punk band, GraveSpitter, reveals who they would want on their ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
The ideal tour for us is a lot about who we want to surround ourselves with for an extended time. Being on a lineup with people you respect, truly connect with, or are just a genuine fan of, can make all the difference after seeing them for months on end. On top of that, we would also love to tour with artists who aren’t afraid to play each show like it’s their last.
The Chariot: If anyone talks about “Energy” during a rock show… they probably know The Chariot. We drove down to Douglasville Georgia in 2013 to see their final show, it was life-changing. There are some bands where it’s impossible to replicate what it was like to be in the audience, even with the audio and video recordings it’s just an experience that you just have to be there for. The Chariot is one of those bands.
The White Stripes: What more is there to say. Luckily, we saw them a few times and each time was incredible. The sound they put out as a two-piece is almost unparalleled. The Excitement of not knowing what song would be played next (they don’t play with setlists) or even HOW it would be played (they try to play differently each time) really adds this unique experience to every show they put on.
Death From Above 1979: Another two-piece. Really a huge inspiration for us as they’re one of the first bass and drum duo we listened to. Great songwriting and proof that duos can still pull out a massive unique sound. The bass tone continues to be a big reference point for some of the tones we strive for so of course, it would be awesome to share the stage.
Every Time I Die: Been to a bunch of their shows, and it’s always a blast. Touring with them looks like it would just as awesome. Anyone who’s ever seen their Shit Happens videos would agree that these guys are hilarious, and just seem fun to be around. That, coupled with them being one of the best hardcore bands for more than the last decade ensures every show would be insane.
