“This song was written about a very special night. It was a cold evening in late September, we were on tour playing a show in Hamburg, Germany. The show was packed and went swimmingly. Afterward, we hung out with the locals had some laughs, stayed up late. In the early hours of the morning, we stumbled over to the promoters house down the street, where we were staying. When we awoke the next day, we noticed that one of the bedspreads laid out for us was still untouched… Our drummer, Stoney had never made it back home. He was missing.”
“After a couple of panicked hours exhausting all our possible ideas. We began contemplating filing a missing person and canceling the next show that night. Our driver, Goose, decided to go grab the van… and wouldn’t you know it he found the little cowboy curled up, far from the venue, freezing, sleeping in the street.”


“At one point after the show we found some permanent markers and we were all drawing on each other’s bodies, doing each other’s makeup and making questionable choices. The boys then headed back to the house we were crashing at but I decided to stick around with the locals. The Germans are quite good at the drinking. This is when everything goes black and the next 3 hours of my memory are completely lost. Once I snapped back into it I am completely alone on the streets of Hamburg, phone dead, nothing on me but two packs of cigarettes and 2 lighters. I start wandering around Hamburg with no idea what or who I’m looking for. It’s so cold outside that I’m forced to walk with my arms inside my sweater and I’m asking the German civilians which way downtown is. Nobody would even give me the time of day. At one point I walked into a coffee shop and asked to use their iPhone charger and got kicked out immediately. The only thing I could do was keep walking.”
“My best bet was to try and find the venue and sleep on the street near it. The problem was I didn’t remember where I was and I was nowhere near the venue whatsoever. Turns out I was actually about 3km from where we played. It got so cold at one point I curled up in the corner of this mirrored building and sat down just smoking and spitting on repeat. I looked over in the mirror and realized my entire face was covered in permanent marker. no wonder nobody would help me out. I sat there for a good 2 hours smoking before I looked up and saw our sprinter van in the distance. I ran towards it and looked in the front seat and saw Benji’s neon orange head pillow and knew it was ours. it was around 11 am that I curled up next to the van and waited for our driver to show up. Once he showed up I started screaming for him to open the doors because I was convinced I had frostbite after spending 6 hours outside in the cold. I jumped in the back of the sprinter next to all the piled up gear and woke up 8 hours later at our show in Mannheim. From then on out whenever we talked about Germany, we always told that story of the night I was a concrete cowboy.”
