From the roads of Portland, OR, readying for tomorrow's stop on the
THRASHING LIKE A MANIAC tour, BONDED BY BLOOD vocalist, Jose "Aladdin"
Barrales chimed in with a report on how the tour's been treating the band so

"The shows have been great so far and every show has been a blast,
especially in places outside of southern California. We never get out there
so in places like San Francisco when we see all the people who are there to
see us and who are singing every word to our songs, it makes us feel really
loved. There wasn't even any parking over there so that made the fans extra
cool to be able to handle having to park, like, a mile away just to hang
with us and forget their troubles for a while."

This being BONDED BY BLOOD's first national trek, they are just starting to
deal with the very strange and mostly uncomfortable life of a band on the

"Our van's really comfortable. We have a bed in the back that 2 of us sleep
in each night. The rest of us sleep in these comfy van chairs, usually me
and my merch guy. Makes it feel like a big family road trip."

While BONDED BY BLOOD's living arrangements seem more comfortable than that
of most other bands, life outside of the van can be just as strange as any

"We met some weird-ass people. This guy in Stockton (CA) at a Denny's
randomly came up to us and offered us jobs and free weed. This other guy in
Sacramento was like "Here in Cowtown (nickname for the region of Sacramento
they were in), we like to fight" like he expected us to throw down or

Along with the strange comes the good and for Jose, the best is yet to come:

"We're pumped for Portland. There's a huge metal scene out there. We can't
wait for Texas, either. We've gotten a lot of comments from people out there
and they're like (in best southern accent) "Whenever you boys come down to
Texas, we'll make sure to treat you right." We're also playing Billy
Milano's club down there. It's going to be sick."
