"We started out the tour with the worst disaster in the entire history of the band," Ka-Spel says, a sense of wonder slowing his voice. "Someone stole $6,000 from us in Amsterdam right when we were leaving. It put us in an atrocious position. We recovered, but when we got to New York, we learned our tour bus was in Montreal. We also learned our first show, in Washington, D.C., had been moved up a night. So we had to drive up to Montreal, back to New York and then down to Washington without stopping. But we made it. And we played well when we got there."
Ka-Spel's expecting a much smoother ride the rest of the tour. And he says he's especially looking forward to the Phoenix date.

"We've been there a couple of times," he says of the Valley. "In 1987, we opened for Skinny Puppy at a wonderful place called Crash. It was a brilliant space to play, great atmosphere. I still consider that show as one of my all-time favorites.
