SACRED REICH Frontman Checks In From Belgium

SACRED REICH bassist/vocalist Phil Rind has issued the following update from the band's European reunion mini-tour:

"I am writing on Gump our tour manager's computer and everything is in German and I don't know how to capitalize, use punctuation or hit 'Enter,' so bear with me.

"We had a great three days in London — two sightseeing and drinking and a great show at Scala. Thanks to everyone for coming out from Ireland, Poland, Greece, Holland, Italy, France, Scotland, and those who just had to hop the tube. It was a great feeling to be there with all of you and we could feel how special it was to you and we felt the same way. Thank you.

"We just spent two beautiful days in Paris seing all the sights. I love France. All the stuff about the French not liking Americans or being rude is just a lie. Go see Paris.

"I am sitting in Biebob in Vosselaar, Belgium. They are checking the drums. Tonight will be fun and tomorrow we head to Eindhoven for a family reunion and Saturday is Wacken Open Air, so if you are coming to the shows, we'll see you soon."
