Southern Revelation Tour Update 11 - Colchester!

Southern ℜevelation Tour † Update - Colchester, UK:

My apologies for this post being so late but we had some important issues to sort once we arrived home and needed to catch our collective breathe after the wild ride we have just been on. We're still coming down from the high and looking back I feel blessed that my voice stayed so strong every night even when I felt stressed under certain circumstances behind the scenes. Thank you to everyone who came out to the beautiful deconsecrated Church turned rock venue known as the Arts Centre to share our final night of the tour with us last week. What an amazing show and memory that will last forever in our hearts and minds.

First and foremost we would like to say thank you to Mick Wood of STC Touring for all his hard work and everything he put into making the tour a success behind the scenes along with our press officer Mona Miluski of Platinum PR who we had the pleasure of having join us on stage in London for a hot rocking duet of "Money Shot . A moment we will always remember fondly.

Thank you to our 3 awesome support bands who we truly enjoyed having on the tour with us....Glen, Gav, Neil & Dan of Godsized - Ritchie, Steve, Mark & John of Long Day Fear and most of all our family and brothers Aaron, Matt & Al of Sanctorum who kindly doubled as our crew and looked after us nightly on and off stage. We love you guys.

We would also like to thank the lovely Miss Tor Burrows for taking the time off to join us on the road and capture the moments that surrounded our shows in videos and photos for her first rock documentary film. It was wonderful to have another woman on the tour and I can still feel her fierce female energy. A true friend, artist and inspiration.

Thank you to our new "Merch King" and my darling Jack Osborne for simply being himself. Between selling our merch, teasing my hair and screaming with me on stage during "Stick It To Me" nightly.....he helped make this tour so very special for me and I adore him. A true star and friend.

A very special thank you to our tour manager Mr Terry Sly who without, none of this would have been possible. We have known this man for 5 years which has included 3 tours together and I can honestly say that he is one of the most professional, loyal, honest and unselfish people we have ever met. We have nothing but respect and admiration for him. Thank you for taking such great care of us. We love ya "Superfly"!

Thank you to Luciano Ferrea [who was with us in spirit during the tour] for suggesting Eddie Brnabic to fill in for bass duties keeping the low end warm when he was unable to join us. We couldn't have asked for a nicer and more down to earth guy. Eddie is a talented musician who was a pleasure to be around and we have nothing but good things to say about him and the way he conducted himself as a part of our band and extended family.

Unfortunately things did not work out the way we had hoped they would with Isaac Lee. After careful consideration and reflection of the tour over the past few days, it’s clear to Mick and me that the relationship between Isaac and My Ruin just isn’t the right fit so we have asked him to leave our band as it has become painfully obvious that he is not the drummer for us. We have worked too hard to watch someone thoughtlessly disrespect all which we have built and stand for and too many things were said and done that we simply cannot forget. That being said, we wish Isaac all the best in his future endeavors.

Last but not least, a heartfelt thank you to all our friends and fans both new and old who came out to the shows. We had a blast in the UK and France! Now it's time to sort through our massive amounts of photos and edit all the video footage we have collected. Lots to be posted soon and for those of you who have still not heard our new 7th album "A Southern ℜevelation" please click the top of our blog and download your free copy today, share the link with your friends and if the mood strikes, make a donation to support do-it-yourself ethos and help keep the spirit of independence alive!

Southern Revelation Tour Update 10 - Norwich!

[Photo by Don Jackson Wyatt & Hair by Jack Osborne @ Moho Live, Manchester]

Southern ℜevelation Tour † Update 10 - Norwich, UK:

The Waterfront in rocked like hell. This was one of our favorite shows of the tour. Our sound on stage was immense and the crowd went crazy from the moment Mick started the guitar feedback introducing 'Silverlake' to the final big rock ending of 'Beauty Fiend'. It was so nice to see so many of our fans reaching out to hold my hand and scream every word to every song along with me.

It may have been snowing and cold outside but inside the room was hot and steamy from the intensity of the show along with all my blasphemous girls in the front row. I felt like I was melting on stage and didn't want the show to end. The vibe in the band was amazing from the minute we stepped on stage and we all felt truly in sync throughout the set.

There have been a few inner circle drama's on this tour that have caused a great deal of tension during and surrounding some of the shows but after sound check we finally put the drama to bed and cleared the air which brought a huge relief to everyone and changed the atmosphere of the tour bringing a new positive light which was really nice and a much needed change of mood.

Before the show Mick & I had a impromptu photo shoot with our good friend and rock photographer Al Pulford followed by some shots of Black Cherry Jim Beam thanks to Sanctorum guitarist [Baby] Al Commons. After the show my girls Penny Batson & Louise Turk gave me some beautiful presents which included a handmade seven sorrows crucifix rosary throat necklace accompanied by one of the most amazing letters written to me on the tour. Thank you Miss Turk. It was truly heartfelt and moving.

I’m currently backstage at the Arts Centre in Colchester and it’s my dream venue, a beautiful 200 year old deconsecrated church with stained glass windows and a cemetery covered in snow and ice just outside of our dressing room window. In fact, this is the venue that inspired the title of the song ‘Deconsecrated’ on our new album so this song will feel extra special and sacred when we play it tonight. I'm sad things are coming to an end this evening just as everything is feeling so cool and back to how it was when we first started the tour. This show is going to be bittersweet for me having to leave the UK and our little family here on the road. I’ve been blessed that I’ve been able to keep my bright red scream as brutal as it can be this tour and remained pretty sober throughout albeit a couple shots here and there to warm the throat so I plan to have a few drinks after our set with Long Day Fear, Sanctorum & Godsized to celebrate our Southern ℜevelation coming to a close. Looking forward to seeing everything who will be joining us this evening. Let's make this a memorable last night show.

Southern Revelation Tour Update 9 - Vaureal, France!

[Photo by Kayla Wren @ The Well - Leeds]

Southern ℜevelation Tour † Update 9 - Vaureal, France:

Le Forum was by far the most professionally run and beautiful venue of the tour. From the moment we arrived, we were treated amazingly well and I can't say enough good things about this club. The owner really had his shit together in terms of promotion and knew how to treat bands. We had a beautiful warm dressing room and were cooked a delicious lunch and dinner. It felt very welcoming. The in house crew were so sweet, accommodating and helpful on every level with the stage, lights and sound system all stunning!

After addressing a situation that had been plaguing our tour and infecting our band, our dressing room felt calm for once and Mick & I were finally able to have a nice, drama free relaxing few hours with Eddie, Tor, Jack and the guys in Sanctorum before the show. We did a pre show video interview with a couple quick photo shoots and then we hit the stage. It was lovely to see a front row filled with so many of my blasphemous girls and UK friends who came in on a coach from London to see us along with our French fans!

The show rocked hard and got pretty violent during a few of the songs which is something I'm not really into as it affected some of the ladies in the front rows who were kicked and punched, with one in particular who means a lot to me, left in tears and physically hurt. I find it disgusting when people treat each other this way at a rock show because we are all there for the same reason and that is to have a good time. I feel personally responsible when someone is mis treated at one of our shows because I feel very protective over our fans and no true fan of our band would ever do this. There were a few very loud and aggressive men [and a couple of women] in the audience who seemed to want to make it their mission to fuck with me and certain fans. I did my best to handle them and Mick Wood of STC Touring even took the initiative to grab one by the neck and drag him out before things got even more crazy. It's a shame when certain people are so desperate for attention they have to turn into assholes and ruin everyone's experience. No pun intended.

After the show Mick, Eddie, myself, Sanctorum & Long Day Fear hung out with all the French fans and those who came in from the UK. Tor and her trusty camera filmed and we captured many moments and intimate interviews for our tour documentary. It was really nice and I enjoyed this one on one time almost more than I enjoyed the show because it was so personal. I want to thank everyone who came to LeForum from London for being a part of this adventure because I know it was a wild and bizarre ride and couple of days. Welcome to the wonderful world of touring.....where there is a strange surprise and interesting cast of characters around each corner. It was great to see you all looking after one another as a family. Thank you all for writing my and letting me know you got home safely. I could barely sleep that night because you were all on my mind. Thank you also to the many French fans who made the night so special and memorable for us.

We are currently in the gorgeous snow covered Norwich back in the UK. Did a little shopping last night in town with Jack Osborne and spent a quiet evening at the hotel having a pizza party with Sanctorum and doing video interviews for the tour with Miss Burrows. Woke up today and counted my bruises. Starting to feel a bit rough physically and my throat is sore today because of the extreme cold weather but I am keeping warm and plan to be on top form this evening. Going to the Waterfront soon for load in and sound check, should be a fun show tonight with our friends from Metal Lust! Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

Southern Revelation Tour Update 8 - Leicester, Leeds & Southend!

[Photo by Andy Watson @ Leicester Square, Leicester]

Southern ℜevelation Tour † Update 8 - Leicester, Leeds & Southend, UK:

Have not been able to get proper internet access or time to post in the past few days so let me recap our last 3 shows starting with Leicester Square in Leicester. This was a nice big venue however, it had the most unprofessional and unorganized crew of the tour. Our guys had to load in up 5 flights of stairs to find a sound man that had no clue how to work his own board which led to a nightmare sound check that lasted for hours and left 4 bands very pissed off with a promoter from Redeemer and club manager who were lame and unaccountable. As doors were held back from opening we had to frantically get a second sound man in before the show to mix the first 2 bands but apparently he was even worse than the first guy so thankfully “Jack of all Trades” and bad ass vocalist of Sanctorum, Aaron Sly stepped up to “tech that shit” like a pro and volunteered to mix Godsized and My Ruin so we could have some sort of a decent show. Couldn't hear ourselves on stage thanks to the monitors that were shit and nearly blew my voice out but the crowd was so energetic and rad that it made up for the lame drama of the venue and everything we were all dealing with behind the scenes so thank you to everyone who came out and rocked so hard with us. Ritchie from Long Day Fear asked me to help him do something special during our set and we concocted a plan to bring his girlfriend up on stage and he proposed to her in the middle of our show! It was the most special memory of the night and a true rock love moment for all of us which we captured on video for him thanks to our tour videographer Tor Burrows.

Backstage pre show, the amazing Mr Andy Watson arrived with his trusty camera in hand for an impromptu last minute shoot and we had a great time together snapping some very glamorous photos of yours truly along with some hot rock shots with Mick and Jack Osborne before shooting us live. It's always so great seeing Andy. He's such a kind, talented and inspiring artist. All the fans that stayed after for the meet & greet were great and it was lovely to see so many familiar faces, Thank you again to Nikki Capener & Sarah Aggarwal for all the beautiful and thoughtful gifts bestowed upon me and Mr M. What a nice surprise!

Unlike Leicester, The Well in Leeds was run by a professional and super friendly staff who made us all feel at home the minute we arrived and from sound check to the show we had a blast. My new favorite lady behind the lens, the hot rock babe Miss Kayla Wren showed up again to click some pre show shots of me and the husband which was one of the highlights of my night. Kayla first shot us in Newcastle and I fell in love with her work and whole vibe so I invited her out for round two and we turned the funky wallpapered ladies toilet into our studio. It was all very punk rock and cool. She also shot us live along with our long time friend and photographer Mark Latham who never misses a My Ruin show in Leeds. It was great to see Mark again as well as Lili Bobcat who got some great shots and video clips she posted on you tube! All in all we had one of the sweatiest most intense shows of the tour.

Chinnery’s in Southend was interesting, a nice clean rock club on the shoreline which was freezing cold when we arrived and the chill grew stronger as the evening progressed. Every tour has that one show that just didn’t feel right and this was it for us on many levels. I could barely hear myself from the minute I took the stage to the end so I felt strained which made the smoke machine the sound man was blasting non stop during our set just add more pain to my already dry throat. Oh, and Mick’s head blew up! That was the icing on the cake. It was a tough crowd with very little emotion for some strange reason and every band felt it. Funny thing is that after the show people told us how much they loved it and seemed to have all had a great time which was nice to hear but odd…considering.

After a long drive to a freezing cold France we arrived at a rather bizarre French hotel and had quite an interesting afternoon and turn of events. Being on tour is never easy for me because of some the strange personalities we come in contact with but at the end of the day, the show must go on and I will always be professional and deliver the best performance I can on stage no matter what the circumstances I am being forced to deal with off stage are. I’ve been in this business for many years and I am grateful for those who continue to support my band and music. It’s an honor to still be able to tour successfully after so many years and make so many great memories on the road with fans and friends both new and old. I know who I am as an artist and as a woman but I continue to learn more about myself and those around me everyday and sometimes what I learn is shocking but I am confident in my ability to stand up for the things I believe in and hold dear to my heart and will fight to the death when those things that I have worked so hard for are threatened and or disrespected. My passion runs far deeper than my lyrics and voice, it’s in my fucking blood and guts and I will not apologize for who I am or be made to feel uncomfortable or held for ransom on my own tour. I just feel the need to state this and just for the record, since I’ve been recently accused of this by someone who is obviously very clueless….. I have never and will never get any Botox and the only type of plastic surgery I have had was after my left arm was nearly ripped off in a car accident in 2006 and I underwent surgeries for medical purposes and a skin graft to be able to have full use of it and my fingers again. THAT’S IT!

That being said, let’s move on to today......I have been looking forward to this show tonight for many months and I can’t wait for all our UK friends and fans who have taken the coach trip from London to arrive today and to see all our amazing French fans this evening front row and at the after show meet & greet. We are about to go LeForum soon for sound check and I will try to check in and post a few more pics after we arrive If I can. I hear the venue is gorgeous and hopefully today’s vibe will match the scenery because nothing and no one is going to ruin tonight for me. This is MY Ruin.
