If interested in hosting a show on the upcoming Apostasy Couch Tour , fans can email the band at [email protected] About the tour, vocalist Josh Grosscup released this statement: “The couch tour is a GEM in the touring world. If Megosh could tour the world just from fan house to house, we'd be more than content. This tour is such a unique opportunity to sit down with our friends and have a sleepover. We play acoustically to them and whomever else they want to invite to their day with Megosh. Every day is filmed, and we give the fans personal webisodes highlighting various moments throughout the day spent with them. We don't ask for much in return either. When it comes to the amenities, we just say “anything to put in our stomachs and a place to lie our heads… even if it's couch.” We aren't fancy. We are a touring band and do this because we love the music and the people we inspire and who inspire us!!”
