Adam Biggs commented:

“What does life all really boil down to in the end? You can be lovey-dovey about the good times, and savor the sweetness that life sometimes provides, but beneath everything is work, struggle, someone is always getting a raw deal, someone’s always sweating it out in the mines somewhere so you can enjoy your diamonds.

This has always proved true in everything I’ve ever done in life. Most people reading this know me as a member of a successful band, but beneath it is constant work. Physical, emotional, spiritual work. All the time. Every day.

And I know that it’s like this across the board for just about anyone in at least some capacity, so I figured this subject would be relatable to a lot of people.

We always just sort of do this thing and it grows. I guess that could change at some point. But thinking about things that way doesn’t seem to get me anywhere either. Better to focus on the work in front of us, as it turns out. If we’ve learned anything for certain in the last year or so, it’s that the future can be murky, we’re not really owed anything, and it can all be taken away any second. But for now, we press on.”

Rivers Of Nihil To Perform “Where Owls Know My Name” In Full On European/UK Tour

Rivers Of Nihil have announced that they will be performing “Where Owls Know My Name” in full on their European/UK tour with Black Crown Initiate, MØL, and Orbit Culture. The group will be joined onstage by saxophonist Zach Strouse on this run.

The band said the following:

“After the absolutely insane ride that was the US “Owls” tour, and more than a third of the shows selling out we knew that we absolutely had to bring the same experience over to the UK and Europe.

This time we are bringing the one and only Zach Strouse along with us to play live saxophone. Zach played all of the saxophone on ‘Owls’ and we’ve managed to lure him out of his dwelling for this super special tour.

Don’t miss this one opportunity to see the true “Where Owls Know My Name” lineup play the record from front to back. Additionally, Andy Thomas from Black Crown Initiate will be joining us on stage each night to perform his guest parts from the record. See you all there!”
