No news - Good news? Any news?

As you might have noticed, the news activity has dropped significantly on the site. The truth is we've actually increased the number of stories, but they are mostly told through facebook. I suggest you like us on fb to stay tuned with the latest twists and turns.

There's plenty of interesting things happening and most of the fun stuff can be found on our wall.

Head to the media section to read reports from the road and don't forget to check out the digilisko.com store for Bob merchandise!

1 - 2 - 3 - Go!

We're proud to announce that Uwe Boll will to support us in Viljandi, Estonia. Unfortunately, at the same time we're pulling the plug for the Slovakian gig in Kosice. We're sorry Slovakia for this devastating blow to your beautiful and potent nation, but we're having problems getting the information we need and thus cannot take the risk to drive all the way to Kosice. Hopefully we can make it up for you at a later point.

Buckle up your seatbelts, the carnival is about to be unleashed!

Hey ho, let's sail!

A week to the Finnish Vappu, which traditionally has been a festivity for the blue collar. Nowadays it is as well a festivity for the champagne drinking class and thus we shall raise our chrystal chalices and sing like there's no tomorrow. The tomorrow will however come and for us it is a much bigger source of amusement than the odrinary hangover. We're heading to Europe. Ha!

There's a ton of joy heading your way with this Finnish carnival, so I suggest you buckle up and tag along for the ride. The dates have already been announced and we'd like to add Rubiin, Viljandi as the tour's last gig AND Klex, Greifswald in Germany as the opening gig!

In Berlin Nattaravnur will join us on stage and in Poland our good friends in Driller and Szpadel jump on the circus. We're gonna let you know more when the ship horn sounds in the port.

By the way, if you're a resident of Pori you might just have ran into an article about us in Satakunnan Kansa. Good times.

One final thing in this plethora of news - last saturday's gig in Lepakkomies was the last club show in Finland for a long time. However, see you on the summer festivals and at the local marina!

Also, a big thank you to Finnlines for helping us get to Germany on their line to Rostock!
