7 Days In The L-Shaped Van



"After a two year break between European tours, Ceremony crossed the pond this summer for a sprint across the continent.

In a roundabout way Ceremony helped me get a full time job doing something that I love, so naturally when they came over I had to figure out a way to ditch work, shirk all responsibility and get in the van with them.

Maybe I could be the runner? The merch guy? Drunkenly help manage the tour? De facto tour clown?

In the end I convinced the powers that be to let me take some photos.

Josh”
