Burst bus breaks down, band misses shows

Burst missed several shows on their current tour after their bus broke down. Here's a statement from the band: "We left Friday's cool but by technial difficulties plagued gig at the Planet Caravan fest in high spirits, only to find that our coach bus had broken down. Ringo, bus drive extraordinaire (he drove fucking Britney Spears for God's sake), went crazy with the phone and managed to get a mechanic down to the bus in the morning. The mechanic, however, was a big boned-fellow, and since his hands were two fat to reach into the engine, that didn't work. He tried getting his retard son to come down and fix it (apparently he had thinner hands/arms), but he was on probation, so that didn't work. Thus, we were stuck in the middle of the NC mountains (beautiful country though), forced to cancel the Richmond, VA show. Frustrating, to say the least. We're in this country to play music, not to sit in a bus and drink Milwaukee Best and look at the rain. Got to see Yob and Astra on the second day of the Planet Caravan fest though. Awesome. "Third day of tour. Bus still unfixed. Mechanic at church. Ringo, the hero, has been on the phone to every bus driver and 80's rock hero in the country (he knows them all; Jackyl, Cheap Trick, Corabi...etc) to get us a new bus, but since we are faaaaar away from any tour circuit, getting a new bus has been a bitch. The latest news is that we will get a bus at 10 o'clock tonight...thus missing the Allentown, PA show all the same. DAMN IT! "Very sorry to all, we are so frustrated about this jinxed start of the tour. We WILL however, make the Brooklyn show and all following shows. "Greetings from five Swedes, lost in Deliverance country."

This is the best news bit I've ever read. "He tried getting his retard son to come down and fix it (apparently he had thinner hands/arms), but he was on probation, so that didn't work" I loled.

I thought they broke up? Maybe we are getting lucky and they are staying together? Great band!

Planet Caravan was posessed by Satan.
