Neogenesis Tour Blog. Poznań, PL

For the first time we got to sleep in very long and recharge ourselves from yesterday. It was very much needed . The drive to Poznań is not very far, we actually passed it on the way to Zielona Góra, it’s a two hour drive.

We drove together with DIABOLICAL and WARHEIM on the highway when DIABOLICAL called to say that they had to take a detour to a car workshop to fix their brakes on the van. Luckily it wasn’t that bad and we had a couple of extra hours before we should arrive at the venue in Poznań.

In Poznań we and WARHEIM took a tour around town for lunch and sight seeing and when DIABOLICAL arrived it was time to load in the gear.

Soundcheck went good and all bands got a really good sound on stage and out to the audience. We watched WARHEIM and after them we started playing. It was a slow start but we managed to wake the audience up and after all it felt like a great show!

Neogenesis Tour Blog. Warzawa, PL

After spending the night in a strange hostel in Slupsk we started the 6 hour drive to Warzaw. The roads in Poland is not quite the same compared to Sweden. But I guess they constantly getting better in Poland and worse in Sweden. It seems like we have a very god GPS, at least compared to the other guys in DIABOLICAL and WARHEIM. We always seem to be the first band to arrive to the destination.

The second show that we were heading for was at Klub Progresja in Warzaw. This is a bigger venue compared to the show we did in Slupsk. It take some time to get used to that the beer is only 4 zt, about 8 SEK.

Sound check went really smooth and we had some really good sound on stage. Except from the two other Swedish bands we had the Polish band BUTELKA warming up the stage. A bunch of very friendly guys who seemed to be working extra as promotors for polish vodka.

Playing at Klub Progresja was lot’s of fun. Not too many people in the audience but we managed to keep the brave ones in a happy mode. I think we can say that the evening turned out to a great event. Especially for Joakim who managed to go through the whole line of Polish Vodka. Today has been hard for him.

Neogenesis Tour Blog. Slupsk, PL

We arrived to a sunny Slupsk and met up with the rest of the bands that came with another ferry to Poland than we did. DIABOLICAL and WARHEIM. Since we arrived much earlier than the rest we had time to walk around Slupsk and get accustom with the surroundings. It’s a very nice town but its really hard to understand the language and English won’t take you as far as we are used to.

After a couple of hours it was time to load in all our gear to the venue Motor Rock Pub and we started to sort out all our merchandise we brought with us.

The show went through pretty flawless and we were happy to see that our music was much appreciated in Poland!

Thank you Slupsk and Motor Rock Pub!

Neogenesis Tour Blog Day II

Ah! Sweet morning. We’re still travelling to get to the tour. Leif and Pirjo, who had been kind enough to let us stay there for the night made us a really good breakfast.


We topped it of with some Chinese Lizard Liqour. Thank you! The aim was set at Karlskrona about 450 kilometers away. It’s far. Very, very far. We had a short stop in Västervik for food then right back behind the wheel. At last we arrived in Karlskrona. We went for a walk and decided to buy a power inverter for the car so we can charge the computers and cameras. That way we can keep you posted!

On the ferry we checked out our cabin and went for a couple of Okocim. The fine taste of polish malt! The ship rocked us gently to sleep with sweet dreams of Friday.


Sverker enjoying the lonely troubadour.



Tomorrow we will play the first show!

Neogenesis Tour Blog Day I

Finally the tour begins. The day started at Northcar, the awesome dudes that let us use a brand new car for the tour. We had to sign some papers, green, yellow, red ones for making the trip in Europe safe and legit. Last night the car got pimped up with our logo as well as the Northcar logo by Vision2. We started packing the car and after loading in 200 tshirts we were amazed how much this car can take. After the bass, guitar and some drum sticks we were all set to hit the road.

After about 6 kilometers it was food time, starting off with plenty of nutricians and vitamins…

The drive today will not get us out of Sweden, it’s a long country (check it out on google maps!). The first stretch is 630km and will take us halfway through Sweden. We will stop for food and sleep at Eskilstuna before we continue to the ferry that will take us to Poland, Gdynia. This is the first tour Souldrainer and we really excited about it.  Horns up!
