One Question Interviews: Banner Pilot

Nate (Banner Pilot)

SPB: What is the hardest thing about touring in foreign countries? Last year (2 years ago?) you played in Russia…

Nate: I'm having a hard time answering this. Touring foreign countries is easy! I find it to be much easier than touring the States. You have someone driving for you, the language barrier is never that bad, they have a place set up for you to stay every night, the shows are incredible, the people are friendly...hell, I was going to say it's a little tricky being a vegetarian but then I remembered that half the shows *cook (awesome) vegan food for you*. 

I guess if I had to pick something, it would be the upfront prep work. Once you get there, it's great-- maybe we've been lucky, or maybe that's the norm, I don't know. But nothing really "bad" has happened to us. But it takes a lot longer, and requires more work, to get the whole thing set up than if you were just doing some dates in the US. I mean, in order to get into Russia we had to mail our passports to some place, and hope that they would send them back. Iowa never makes us do stuff like that.

These are minor things, though. Really, the hardest thing about touring foreign countries is coming home. (See what I did there?)
