Brandon Gallagher (Old Wounds)
SPB: Are trucker bombs allowed in the van? Have any stories?
Gallagher: At first, I had no idea what a trucker bomb was, so immediately I went to urban dictionary and found out that it simply means "pee bottle." I honestly don't think I could of gotten asked a better question, so here it goes. First and foremost, Old Wounds does not keep our van clean. Most of the time it's because of sheer laziness and just not wanting to get rid of our bottles. Towards the end of the tour we had completely killed our case of water, so there was a plethora of empty water bottles laying around. Not only that but there were even trickier bottles such as Mango Kombucha, Lemon Lime Gatorade, hell even some opaque bottles. It got to the point where, I kid you not, there must of been 10 pee bottles scattered throughout the van. We had unfortunately came up with a sick game—and I don't mean sick as in, like, "Woah, sick bike!"—where it was basically “Who's going to drink the first pee bottle?” Zak, the guitarist of Old Wounds, usually sleeps in the van to keep it safe, so one night I'm guessing he woke up and was like, "Boy am I thirsty.” [He] grabbed the closest water bottle and took a swig...
Let's just say when you drink a lot of water, your pee is pretty clear, and poor old Zak doesn't have the best eyesight without his glasses on. It was very unfortunate. Moral of the story? If you ever find yourself in our van, examine every bottle you find before you think it's a good idea to drink it, because chances are it's pee.
