ben marwood's USA adventure

The excellent recent US tour with Frank Turner and Off With Their Heads seems like many a moon ago now (well, I've been home three weeks today), but the impact is far-reaching. To me. Today.

Why? I'm glad you asked. It's because the phunky photographer and vivacious videodude Ben Morse has created this small account which accurately sums up the following points which came to light on the US tour:

1) USA! USA!
2) The shows were fun
3) I was tired and look tired
4) Some Americans struggle with my surname

You can see the video in all its wondertastic glory below.

US Tour: a tale of two videos

Hey everyone.

This is my first post since getting back from the US tour a couple of weeks ago - my final show there was indeed two weeks ago this very night, which is weird because it feels like a lifetime ago now - and the silence is down to trying to write a tour summary which isn't a) needlessly emotional, b) one million words and c) shit.

Whilst we're all enjoying Ben Marwood Being Silent here's two videos from various stages of the tour: one on the opening night at The Chance in Poughkeepsie before doors opened with me and Frank playing through Question Marks, and the second filmed at the other end of the tour where I am looking bedraggled and much shorter: Frank's festival survival guide, filmed at Osheaga Festival in Montreal, Canada.
