One Question Interviews: La Armada

Paul Rivera (La Armada – guitar)

SPB: What is the secret to a successful tour?

This question is more complex than it seems. I think the answer varies a lot depending on so many factors like what size of band is touring, what’s the main goal of the tour, and other logistical issues. At the root of it, if I had to say there was one thing that is the universal key for any kind of touring act, it's BEING PREPARED.

Preparation will save you time, money and maybe even your life. Having every detail of the tour readily available to everyone in the band, making sure the van is taken care of, having enough merch, having all your paperwork in order along with so many other tasks will leave you ready to tackle any situation that may arise—because, as everyone who tours knows, the road is unpredictable and things WILL HIT THE FAN. So don't be afraid to make spreadsheets, call buddies in advance to crash their couches, check your tire pressure and get a AAA card. But just be prepared.
