One of the most anticipated tours of this fall is the return of From First To Last, and we’re so excited about it that we asked FFTL to keep a weekly diary of the experience. Part four is below; you can read part one here, part two here and part three here. Enjoy!

Hey, this is Derek and I have hijacked the tour diary this week. Let’s see, where to begin…

Ricky kicked off Hanukkah by giving our tour manager Stuart a chocolate "Star of David" on a stick from a candy apple store at the mall in Medford, Oregon. At the same mall I walked into a store and something said, "You’re a fucking idiot!" I looked over and it was a talking middle finger toy only two inches away from my face.

In other news:

  • Matt Good almost landed a 360 flip in the parking lot of the exit in Fresno. Travis and Manning have broken the world record for how many times in a week you can watch The Fugitive.

  • All of the bands on tour got together on our bus the other night to have a few beers and watch Zeitgeist, The Movie.

  • Dan from Four Year Strong gave Matt Good a drawing of bacon and eggs?!

  • The back lounge has been completely dominated by Guitar Hero 3.

  • Finally, Brandon from Vanna loves rack toms.
