First, some brand new pics:

The band is busy playing their asses off, but Matthew had time to send along this note for everyone on this tour.
“In Madina Lake we call this our “cruising altitude.” It’s a stretch of shows or a tour, or just a general sub-conscious of the band that feels euphoric. We are firing on all pistons. We spent the summer slugging it out on Warped tour, which was a lot of work. It was rewarding but we felt a bit restrained. I compare it to the Taste of Chicago. It’s fun, it’s hot and there’s a shitload of people there everyday, but instead of sitting down and having a complete meal in custom designed dining area, you’re just sampling a few bits from a hundred different restaurants.
We prefer to have a captive audience so we can focus on taking them for a ride. This tour with Papa Roach has afforded us exactly that opportunity. Another refreshing characteristic of this run is the audience. It’s no scene contest. These are people who appreciate how music has enriched their lives and they’ve shown up for an uninhibited escape.
We are lucky as hell to be here.”
