Mighty Death Pop Tour

Kung Fu Vampire is on the road w/ Insane Clown Posse for their Mighty Death Pop U.S Tour. This is such a monumental tour for us to be on. We have put in countless days into designing and perfecting our performances to make sure concert goers get a unforgettable performance. Check out the Upcoming Shows to see when we will be playing near you! If we are not coming to your area, please understand that it is obviously out of our control but Kung Fu Vampire will be going back out this fall to tour those areas that were left out on this one. We represent the people, the underground and we do these tours for YOU!


Love Bites Tour Blog #2

Hey Everyone! We are back on the road after a successful night in Vancover, Washington. Fans came from all over Oregon and Washington to get a taste of the new album, Love Bites. The album releases worldwide on Oct. 31st Halloween but if you make your way to a show you can get it before it’s in stores. The opening acts were very eclectic, my favorite being a local 360 metal band, Unruly Instinct. It’s rare to have bands open for us so it’s a pleasant surprise when it happens.

Kung Fu Vampire fans are the most die-hard fans ever! Some shows we have people buy every CD and every shirt made. Last night we had an underage fan stand out in 40 degree, rainy weather for 8 hours just to hear our set.

While on tour it’s essential to always do a “Dummy Check” before leaving any location. It could be the difference between leaving a microphone at a venue or a toothbrush in a hotel or in our case today having your trailer come completely off your vehicle and rear end you, TWICE! Somehow, the bolt that holds the trailer hitch to the receiver ball failed causing to trailer to come free! It was very unexpected, but if we would have done our dummy check before departing we might have caught this before it happened. Thankfully no one was injured and the vehicle only suffered minor dents in the bumper. ALWAYS DUMMY CHECK!

Oct 21st was an all ages show in Tacoma, Washington at the Backstage Bar and Grill. The show got underway early in the afternoon to accommodate the eight opening acts. The NorthWest has some talented artists, my favorite being Justinsayne N8V who delivered a very rehearsed and passionate performance. You can check out his stuff at www.reverbnation.com/justinsaynen8v. After the show the promoters, LyonPride, invited the band to an after party. A handful of us went to go hang out. The party was decent but drastically overshadowed by the cab ride home. Daniel Sibbett, founder and driver of Aloha Cab “Tacoma’s Original Karaoke Cab”, came to pick us up from the party. Immediately he sang his theme song and soon after I was back up on stage singing “Because I Got High” by AfroMan. Daniel read me like a book as it was the perfect song to play in that moment. When we got back to the hotel we decided we were in need of food! We had almost two hours to kill before the free breakfast at the hotel so we headed to the casino across the street. As soon as we walked in I was asked to leave the premises or surrender my knife. I wasn’t about to give them my money AND my knife so we bullshitted with the security for a few minutes while we finished our free coffee.

Today, Oct 22nd, we headed to Spokane, Washington to throw down at The Hop. Our drive was smooth but we finally hit copious amounts of snow and rain. In the van you find all types of things to occupy your time. I personally like to catch up on emails, discover new technology, blog, eat, sleep, mess with sleeping people and listen to stand up comedy. After a quick setup and sound check the show was underway. Despite being a freezing Monday night there was an exceptional turn out! This city has many talented artists that I have had the pleasure to get to know a bit better. I got a lot of respect for Wildcard, Sikk Boy and Chop Meat Records for holding down the Underground scene in Spokane. We also have MAD respect for the Satellite Diner. For the past few days everyone has been talking about what they are going to eat when they get there. I ordered the Biscuit Stacker – a plate of cheesy hash browns with a biscuit filled with a sausage patty, egg and bacon covered in creamy gravy! So good!!!! I think we are going back for seconds….


Till next time people!!!

Love Bites Tour Blog #1


…From the beginning of my musical journey I have always wanted to be in a band that traveled the world. What better way to gain life experiences than going from town to town with a group of close friends getting to meet all walks of life…

On October 18th Kung Fu Vampire kicked off the Love Bites tour which is our 8th tour in less than three years, our longest tour ever (47 days) and also one of the longest tours the independent HipHop scene has ever seen! We are showcasing many songs off our new album Love Bites. Kung Fu Vampire is a very efficient machine. We produced the album OURSELVES, mixed the album OURSELF, booked the tour OURSELVES, setting up the stage show OURSELVES. Joining us on tour we have Liquid Assassin, Mr. Grey and Freelance Assassins.

Going on tour has its pros and con’s. The sacrifices you need to make seem to never end for this lifestyle. It starts with massive amounts of time given to perfecting your craft then spending copious amounts of money to have the gear necessary to put on a compelling show. The time away from the people that are incremental to your life is one of the hardest sacrifices. In my case I have 45 days until I see my people again. I’ve done plenty of tours and time away from home so Im used to it but it still hurts twice as bad as any other sacrifice. By realizing the person waiting at home for you is sacrificing as well you hurt because you know you are putting them through something difficult.

There are many upsides to being on tour as well. Every day is a new adventure. You never know who you your going to meet, what accommodations the hotels will have or what lies on the road ahead. Getting to share your art with the world is the biggest payoff. It’s great meeting people that are genuinely stoked to have you in their city. It hasn’t happened on this tour yet but I am looking forward to getting some time to explore different cities hopefully getting shown around by locals to find all the dope hidden spots.

Oct. 19th we rocked Sutherlin Oregon at Brothers Bar. We were fortunate to have a very enthusiastic crowd ready to party hard. Mr. Grey started a mosh pit that erupted into a fight which ended in friendship. All the employees from the hospitable GuestHouse Hotel came out to watch the show. They are so cool, I recommend this hotel to any anyone passing through the area.

We are currently in transit to our next show going down TONIGHT at Malibu’s in Vancouver, WA. I will continuously update this blog with news, pictures and videos from the tour so make sure to check back often! As always please check out the tour schedule and come out to a show! If you can’t make it out make a friend go in your place, we are putting on a bad ass show and it should not be missed!


Till Next Time….
