The Demilich-provided Nespithe shirts will be coming, too. And the US tour shirts. And all the other things I’ve promised. Just give me some time, please. I’m in the middle of the hassliest hassle I’ve ever been in.
Hellfest 2018 is finally here (tomorrow), and we have an exclusive shirt available at the festival! It’s the Classic Adversary, but with letters H, E (twice), L (also twice), F, and some other ones I’m too lazy to type now.
To celebrate the birth of Louis van Amstel, we painted the shirt in the colors of a rotated Dutch flag. Or was it the World Cup and Russian colors, but in wrong order? Hard to remember the motivation.
We’ll also bring the beautifully colored Polychromatic Adversary shirts, and French mastermind Chris Moyen’s “I am The Horrifying Adversary Of Emptiness, thus I tickle babies” ladyfit shirts, all available for insanely reasonable prices at the official merchandise desk, on Saturday only!
I planned on announcing the Nespithe shirt competition winners and new batches of logo shirts, but I ran out of bad humor today. More of those in early July. With more bad humor.
Let’s rewind back a bit. We’ll imagine now that it’s Monday, May 21, and Lord Antti Boman, The Always-Punctual And Respected Leader of The Independent Musicians’ And Beautiful People’s Republic Of Demilich, has just crawled back home from the US tour and Steelfest. So, close your eyes, and you’re living in the near history. Now, read the thing below. Yep, with your eyes closed.
Hi everyone! We just got back from the US tour and Steelfest! It was a trip to remember! All shows were fantastic and beyond imagination, packed with audience, and I cannot even think of how horrible my life will be now that I’m settling back to normal life!
First of all, thanks to Jani and Steelfest for the hospitality and one of the greatest festivals on Earth! We’ll be back there for sure, unless we’re not wanted back there!
Thanks to the other Demilich members, too. Touring is hard, but we managed it once again, dudes!
Then, thanks to the audience, the organizers, the interviewers, and everyone who took part in the most amazing tour ever in the USA! We will definitely be back, and tour for a longer time and nation-wide. Hopefully with the same bands and other people who belonged to the tour party, as they are a family to me now. I grew to love every one of them in such a short time. Fortunately I’ll be seeing some of them in September already!
So, the final thanks to these awesome people, sorted by the average ordinal value of the letters in the first name of the person. Why? Because why not. I love them all in any order.
