Panida, Sandpoint, ID - 5/2/10

Sandpoint, United States

So, this was the first show We As Human has played in quite a few months. Our trip starts in Sandpoint, Idaho. Hometown to Justin Cordle (Vocals) and Adam Osbourne (Drums). The Panida (rhymes with "Canada") Theater is an old theater downtown. The show was opened up by a group from Oregon called Crown Point, then followed by 18 Shades (formerly Illusion 33) and then closed by We As Human. Truly an AWESOME experience as a first show for myself and the other new guitarist (and true shred master!) Justin Forshaw. We had a BLAST and totally brought justification to the tremendous amount of practice and work we had put in the week before!

It is the start of something new and good for everyone in the band, and the band as an entity. I truly hope the fans enjoy this lineup as much as I do and the rest of the guys.

Next stop, Port Angeles, WA!

So It's been a while, but there were two more shows to conclude the Spring tour of our 2010 Tour blog. I will keep the posts short and let the pictures do the talking. This was at the Nuart Theater in Moscow, ID. It was us and The Nameless. Fun show. We roamed Main Street before the show and found some hilarious suff!!

Cornerstone 2010, Bushnell, IL - 06/28/10 - 07/02/10

Bushnell, United States

One of the most amazing and brutal weeks of my entire musical career! We saw THOUSANDS of faces throughout the week! We teamed up with a RAD organization called Live Offensively (http://www.liveoffensively.com/lo/) who sponsored a tent for We As Human this year. The guys with Live Offensively were a BLAST! We were blessed to have an indoor, air conditioned place to sleep. I can't say so much for everyone else! Adam had a great idea to make a bed out of some of the conference chairs in our room.

The drive up was absolutely beautiful as we made the 30 hour treck across half of the US. Carrying 9,000+lbs of equipment in our trailor, we managed to pull into the Cornerstone 2010 grounds on Saturday evening. We took some time to scout out the camp and then headed out for some Hardy's burgers! Sunday it was all work as we set up our stage (one of 13 in the entire festival) called the Ammunition Room.

Cornerstone was packed with over 300 Christian artists ranging from folk to rock to hip-hop and everything inbetween! There were something like 13 generator stages (stages that ran off of small generators) and one main stage. We played every day on our stage and one day on the Texas Stage (check out video here -->http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBfYohd40U0). We drew some impressive crowds and even attracted the attention of Brian "Head" Welch (Whosoevers/formerly of Korn), Sonny Sandoval (Whosoevers/P.O.D.), and the guys from Skillet!

We hosted some FANTASTIC bands on our stage including Upon This Rock and Don't Wake Aislin!

I heard more Metal in one week than I've heard in my entire life! There were bands from all over the country and even groups from Mexico and Canada! So many fantastic networking opportunities and connections are made every year at Cornerstone.

By the end of the week, we were EXHAUSTED! Our equipment was covered in dirt and spit, our ears were throbbing, and we were all sore as we loaded up in the rig to head south. The week was truly an experience I will NEVER forget! We made new friends and ran into some old ones. It was a first for myself and for We As Human, but if I were to place a bet right now, it definitely will not be our last.
