Nick Baranov (vocals, guitars) states: “Hey guys, we just got back from the road a few days ago, and one thing is for sure – this was one hell of a road trip! From the belligerent hundreds of people in cities like Boise, Chicago, and Worcester, to the never-ending bar tabs, house parties, and all sorts of trouble we’ve caused in the past 35 days. We hope everyone that came out to see us had as much fun as us, because we definitely won’t forget the ‘Thrashed and Detoured 2010 Tour’ (if we can even remember some parts, that is!).
