Off the Road with Pussyröt

So y’all idiots went on tour during a global pandemic to play Shane from Phobia’s birthday. How did that go?

Brent

That show was awesome until Verbal Abuse didn't show up. Conflict Resolution was sick.

Hennessey

Can I just send the videos? 

Rob

Yeah, the videos kind of sum it all up.

Brent

Damnit, it's just me being a drunk piece of shit…

Hennessey

As usual.

This is already going very well.

Brent

I apologize for being “Pantera drunk”, as Henney calls it.

Hennessey

“Pantera drunk” is Rob’s term.

Brent

Ahhhh, I can't remember, I was drunk.

So when and where did you guys have to call it quits?

Brent

I think we made up our minds on the way to Cali from Phoenix. And it was kind of made up for us, too. Most of the bars were closed down.

Rob

After Phoenix. We had already cancelled Tijuana.

How many shows were left?

Rob

5

Hennessey

This lady in San Antonio was telling us how many cases were already there and we were like, “Uhhh, shit.” We got to Huntington Beach and turned around and went home. Forrest Gump style.

Rob

Yeah, they even shut down the mall. 

So how far were you before you realized it was going to be a problem and started seeing other national tours shutting down? 

Brent

I started getting a bad feeling during Albuquerque.

Hennessey

We realized that we’re definitely idiots for keeping on but we weren’t about to turn back at that point.

Rob

...kind of when we listened to the press conference from Cantrell. 

Brent

It was an odd situation to say the least.

Because of course you keep trying to go as long as possible... It’s too much of an investment in time and money and energy to just call it off at the first sign of trouble, but... global fucking pandemic.... Ohhh, that Cantrell press conference… Fuck the Mayor, but when HE says stay home, boy you better get the fuck....

Brent

Nola people can’t stay home to save their lives and this shit proving it.

Hennessey

We should do a second line. 

For music?

Brent

I’ll watch live from home.

Hennessey

A Pussyröt set.

I can already imagine the cocaine artwork. “Second Line? How about a third or a fourth, FUCK.”

Hennessey

At this point I’s be happy with just one line!!

Brent

It's been a while since I’ve done drugs.

Rob

Yeah, it’s been forever.

Tell me about it. It’s a problem.

Hennessey

All we have left is bud light over here it’s getting sad.

Rob

I got a 30 pack from Walmart yesterday

Brent

I have 8 Busch.And no money. It’s gonna be a long month.

I can’t afford my Jameson habit if I’m not working at a bar anymore. Unemployment won’t even cover my vices. It’s a sad world that we live in.

Brent

Drinking alone at home is boring, been drinking like 2 beer a day.

Rob

I’ve just been getting crazy stoned everyday. I’m on a mission to sit through all 9 Puppet Masters. I miss Tequila.

Brent

Everyone is gonna be so bad after all this, we’re all gonna need rehab by the end of summer.

So you guys, like the rest of us now, still have a fuckload of merch that you couldn’t move given the timing and the circumstances. How should people go about finding your music or ordering your merch right to try and support the (sarcastic air quotes) “arts”?

Brent

Facebook and Messenger I guess. That way it's person to person and no one takes percentages of our product

Hennessey

Yea bandcamp takes 10%, fuck them.

I get that. If you’re in New Orleans, who’s got the goods? And if you aren’t, is there shipping? And what’s the best way to find/listen/download/potentially buy this “music”?

Brent

They definitely don’t deserve that much. Maybe for a band with a bunch of music Bandcamp helps but we just got these t shirts brah. We only have 2 tapes left atm and i'm not sure if those are for sale. The shirts are in the jam space, we're grabbing them as we need them so they stay safe under lock and key, you know.

Hennessey

We do have a Bandcamp though. pussyrot.bandcamp.com/releases. Download our shit for free.

Brent

I remember paying like 75 cents for Fiends Derailed on Bandcamp just because that’s all I had on a card and wanted to give them something… Anyway, that video that’s “Pantera drunk” Brent should never be posted in public. Seriously, I was bad enough for acting like that in public, I don’t want to live through that again but with people I know… well, only if it's a sizable donation/purchase. 20 bucks or more.

Hennessey

That one is for our OnlyFans.

Brent

I bet other people have like real stuff to say and what not.

Hennessey

We are the world.
