MindMaze has been blessed with the opportunity to go out on the road with Saxon and Armored Saint for 8 shows in September 2015. This is an unbelievable honor for us, as big fans of both of these bands and their music. We've opened for Saxon as a local support band twice and each time has been among our all-time best shows. The opportunity to go out on the road with these bands and see our fans in various news places as well as make many, many more is absolutely immense.
9/12 @ Palace Theater - Stafford, CT
9/13 @ Asylum - Portland, ME
9/15 @ Howard Theater - Washington, DC
9/16 @ Token Lounge - Westland, MI
9/17 @ Altar Bar - Pittsburgh, PA
9/18 @ Agora Ballroom - Cleveland, OH
9/19 @ Oddbody's - Dayton, OH
9/20 @ Arcada Theater - St. Charles, IL
We truly cannot adequately express our excitement over this opportunity and appreciate all the support our amazing fans can give us in order to make it a reality. We genuinely believe this is a crucial stepping stone in our progress as a band and can't wait to get on the road and see everyone!
Risks and challenges
There's a myriad of logistical and financial obstacles involved in an undertaking like this, but we are looking forward to the challenge. This will be by far the most shows we've played in this span of time, and the most miles we'll have ever traveled (about 3,200 round-trip) - every day will be a learning experience for us, but this is really the golden opportunity we have been waiting for.
This tour will take us over 3,000 miles which includes vehicle rental, gas money, tolls, hotel rooms, merchandise printing, and meals for the band while on the road. We are also trying to pay someone to come along to assist us in selling merch and teching for us, so this will not come cheap. The project goal is only part of the full cost, just the minimum we need to ensure that we will end up in an OK place financially.
