THE HAUNTED Frontman: 'Arizona Folks Love The Metal And There Ain't No Mistaking It'

THE HAUNTED frontman Peter Dolving has posted the following message on his MySpace page:

"The show last night was incredible and the night before in Tucson as well. Arizona folks love the metal and there ain't no mistaking it. Albuquerque was incredible, kids chanting for us and singing along. And the girls... This is something that's been growing over the last two years. And yes it's fucking sweet seeing girls in the smack middle up front banging away flashing the horns shouting the lyrics as loud as the dudes.

"Five days can feel like an eternity.

"So I can stay off getting fucked on pills, smoke or drink pretty well right now, but I find myself slipping into sloppiness when it comes to keeping in touch with what keeps me grounded. I just realized this tonight as I got in my bunk. I haven't talked to my family in like five days. And it just hit me. Shit. I just realized what´s allowed me to do this as well. See, I got talking with my wife on a subject that really fucks with me every time — money.

"It's not that I don't have it — it's the fact that I have to take responsibilty over it. So instead of just taking care of business, I allowed myself to start shutting down, letting myself to slip into a kind of nothing mode. Sleep, eat, physical excercise, performance, rest - and begin again. That good ol fucked up survivalist mindset... Yeah, old habits die hard.

"In shutting down I stopped calling my sponsor, stopped trying to get ahold of people in my program, stopped filling up my phone card, stopped recharching my phone. Shit, I even stopped keeping track of taking my meds.

"Well, it's not going to do me any good laying here feeling like a fucking dipshit about it — is it? I got my day cut out for me tomorrow, and tomorrow night after I deal with what I need to, I'll have the pleasure and reward of getting up on stage with the mutherfucking HAUNTED and screaming my guts out.

"Guess what? I think I can actually do it. I don't need to set myself up with another guilt trip. Fuck that.

"Now sleep..."
