(On the topic of this year’s Jägermeister Music Tour)
“EverythingRock: You’re endorsed by Jägermeister…
Stitch: Yeah, they were plying us with booze. It got ridiculous at one point.
AvD: Stitch was drinking 2 bottles of Jäger a night… we’ve gone back down to 1 bottle now!
Stitch: They gave us 2 bottles as an allowance per-day, and then there were aftershows each night where it was free Jägermeister, so it got a bit silly.
AvD: And then as a going away present… more Jäger!
Stitch: Jägerbombs. “We got these special limited cans made that go around so the bottle goes inside of it. There’s one of them each, too!”. They gave one to every, like, crew member and every person on the whole, so that was nice!
AvD: It’s amazing. I mean, Jägermeister was the first ever company, I suppose, to ever put any kind of money into our band.
Stitch: They were there before we had labels or anything.
AvD: And I think that’s when our manager took us seriously – he was like “Oh, Jägermeister care!”. They used to print our T-Shirts for free…
Stitch: Made our videos for free… they helped us with the record…
AvD: Yeah, so it’s er…
ERock: Jägermeister was the start for you?
AvD: Yeah man, I really, like… we wouldn’t be we were we are without them to be honest. We can’t get a loan, we don’t have any other backing, and it’s really cool that this alcoholic drink that we like to shove down our face were like “Here you go!” *laughs* “Make a video? What do you want to do? Burn a piano? Right on man! Here you go!” *laughs* They’re really cool dudes at Jägermeister. They always treat us well, so yeah, that was a good tour!”
