Haste the Day Plotting Tour With Enter Shikari
Guitarist Dave Krysl reflected on two key events that HTD enjoyed this summer: Warped and their Haste the Day Vs. Haste the Day shows, where former members of the band performed together again in what was the ultimate HTD show.
"Warped Tour is a crazy tour all around," Krysl told Noisecreep. "It's like its own little world that exists apart from any other reality. The craziest show we've had was in St. Petersburg, Fla., because we played outside in the middle of a tropical storm. It was raining horizontally on us and the crowd. Despite some of our gear being ruined, it was one of the most fun sets we've ever played." While gear can be replaced, a super fun set isn't as easily duplicated.
The hometown HTD Vs. HTD shows were also memorable, too! "'The Wolf King' CD release show was a big spectacle, because we had all the original members come back and play a dual set with the new lineup," Krysl recalled. "It was great for the kids to see, and it was fun to have all the HTD camp united for a show. Probably one of the craziest shows ever. It was a great night, and none of us will ever forget."
Krysl wouldn't reveal any set list surprises for the upcoming Haste the Day tour dates with Enter Shikari, since he said it wouldn't be a surprise if he told us. Now that the band transitions from summer to fall touring, Krysl is happy to leave the heat behind. "Both are great in their own way," he said. "This summer has felt like summer camp being on Warped Tour and all, so it's been super fun. It was almost like being on vacation. However, it's hot every day, everywhere, and the heat can make you tired and wear you out a little. So fall touring will be nice, as the weather is a little nicer. Any touring is good touring."
