In conjunction with the organizers of this summers inaugural Thrash and Burn tour, I am excited to announce that I will be inviting you backstage this summer to answer your Ask the Dude questions in person.
When the idea of doing Ask the Dude Live came up I was far beyond stoked (catch the Pantera reference?)! Meeting new people at shows and making new friends all over the world is probably the single most fulfilling thing about being a touring musician. It seems that the more hardcore, punk, and metal gets swallowed by the mainstream the more the true connection between artist and listener is lost. I hope to make some new friends, hold some killer parties, and hopefully maybe even help some dudes out this summer!
If you would like have your Ask the Dude question answered live, submit your question to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your city and date when will be in your town this summer (tour dates listed below) in the SUBJECT LINE of the email. If your question is chosen you will receive two spots on the band’s guest list with instructions on how, when, and where to meet me the day of the show.
Remember you can still always submit your questions directly to me at: email@example.com to be posted on the Ask the Dude website! Also, check out Ask the Dude in print in this August’s issue of Alternative Press (issue 241).
