W.A.S.P. drummer Stet Howland has posted the following message on his official web site:
"Hello to all you StetHowland.com rock and roll animals. Been out of touch due to the fact I'm out of the country. The European tour is killing! We have destroyed every gig so far.
"I really enjoyed the U.K. and Finland so far. Lots of good friends have come out to hang with us. My buddy Chaz from BONHAM & LYNCH MOB showed in London, as did Z.P., Sam, Herman & Dave from DRAGONFORCE. I had the good fortune of meeting a bar full of WaspNation people who were all so damn cool. My old buddy Crazy Stu from my BLACKFOOT years came out. It has been a whirlwind so far! Nothing but love I have to say.
"The band is better than ever and the vibe behind the scenes is awesome. After all these years with these guys we still somehow love each other. Go figure! Lol
"The curiosity and support towards my band (CARNIVAL OF SOULS) is overwhelming. All the wasp fans are aware and into the carnival. It's so cool to have something new for them to check out. Aside from the recent Hit Parader article, we have a feature in an upcoming Metal Edge issue. Check out the current Metal Edge feature on W.A.S.P. on the road. I hear it's a fucking riot.
"So we are off to Helsinki, Finland as I write. Last night's show sold out and tomorrow's show is almost there.
"We are having the time of our lives. Thanks to you, my/our friends and fans. You fucking rock! You people breath the life back into a band that some feared had been forgotten. I'm so touched that I feel a bottle of red wine is in order — so, take care and go to hell! Love ya, Stet"
