Chris Gaylord of Wage War Interview – From Van to Tour Bus

Chris Gaylord of Wage War Interview - From Van to Tour Bus

This week we have Chris Gaylord, the bassist for Wage War on the podcast. I haven’t seen Chris in almost three years now but damn was it good to catch up with him. Chris’ band has been touring their asses off for almost ten years now. This most recent tour was their first in a tour bus and I know that feeling all too well. Congrats guys, what a time to be alive. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Wage War – put on their Spotify, clear all the breakable objects from your vicinity, and just mosh. That is what I do.

In this episode of the Don’t Shit On The Bus podcast we will learn:

• How Wage War worked their way up from opener to headliner
• What touring looks like post-COVID
• About the comradery of being on a bus with your touring crew
• The challenges for a band to go from a van tour to a bus tour
