Tour Diary: 7 Minutes in Heaven

We are happy to present another guest blog from Chicago’s 7 Minutes In Heaven. Hitting the road can be a trial of patience and a test of character, packing into a van with a few guys and playing in new, exciting places every night. Taking time to reflect on the touring experience is essential for any band and luckily these guys were kind enough to give us a glimpse of their experiences. Check it out below!

Playing in smaller venues is so intimate. Everything has a way of telling a story, and if you’re really fortunate you become part of someone else’s story.

Our music deals a lot with the human condition. The fragility in being vulnerable. Nostalgia as a coping mechanism.

There’s a lot of comfort in knowing that everybody is constantly in their own respective state of emotional turmoil.

Friendship comes first, and we only work with good people. That’s a very real part of our lives and can be felt in the way that we do things.

There’s no room for entitlement. There’s no room for guilt when choosing what’s best for you or doing what makes you happy.

Tour is more than waking up in a different city each day or playing a new venue each night. It’s all the people, places, and moments in between.
