Level Up Your Touring with Shane Told of Silverstein

Please welcome Shane Told to the bus! Shane is the lead singer of Silverstein and host of Lead Singer Syndrome Podcast. Shane is a special guest to Neil and me because he and his band played such a significant role in our careers. Hear about how we all met, some of the adventures we share, and random tips that come up through our conversation. We hope you enjoy this week as much as we did and always do.

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

• How Shane took Adam on his first bus tour
• How A Day To Remember and Silverstein helped each other out
• Tip for touring
• Does Shane wear shower shoes?
