D.R.I. Frontman Provides the Lowdown on Band's Latest Tour

June 18, 2003

D.R.I. frontman Kurt Brecht sheds light on the band’s latest tour, including their non-appearance at this year’s New England Metal and Hardcore Fest:

“People are often asking me if being in D.R.I. has become, “Just a job”. Or if touring has become, “monotonous”. For me, I have always considered a job as a place I would rather not be, but have to for the pay. I still enjoy being in and touring with D.R.I. When I get that call telling me a new tour is upcoming, I’m excited and looking forward to performing on stage again. In other words, D.R.I. is not a job for me, it’s a privilege!

“This last tour was too short, only three weeks, but was important in that it was the last leg of our 20th Anniversary World Tour, which included three US tours, one European Tour, Japan and South America! I have to say sorry to our fans who missed us at the Metalfest in Worcester, MA, we showed up 10 minutes late and could not play as the stage had already been dismantled! We drove all day to get there but got stuck in very bad traffic. We did play a lot of great shows, though, and covered a lot of ground. We are already looking forward to the next US tour in October, hopefully hitting your town. See you in the pit!”
