Skyburial was one of the biggest bands from Denver who toured so I knew if I made a good impression amongst the local community and with the band, they'd want to take me along. I'm still mad they didn't ask me to join while they did a tour with Mushroomhead but I'll forgive them for not knowing better to ask me to come with ; )
I was hired for this tour a year after I had ended a brief fling with their former 2nd vocalist so it honestly was kind of like a 'haha...fuck you Cody, your former bandmates like me' but also a lot of 'yes the biggest band in Denver took ME out of all the photographers they could have taken'. They had me run their merch table and also do daily photos along with getting footage to make a music video for them.
They wanted a mix of live and behind the scenes footage for the video so I did film a lot but unfortunately as I was finishing up the video while at home in between tours, I had accidently deleted a folder that contained most of it.
I didn't realize this until after I had emptied my recycle bin and I don't think I've ever been more mad at myself for being so dumb and not double checking things first.
Thankfully the video was in the final stages of editing otherwise I would have been fucked and unable to complete the work.
I would have loved to have been able to make a full length tour documentary for this band because they are no longer active and this was their last tour. Not to mention our tour mates, Some Where to Call Home, were a lot of fun to hang out with and were included in some of the lost footage as well. Many know I've always said I could never pick favorites, but honestly the free time on this tour was my absolute favorite due to the places we got to visit and the food we ate.
I did what I could with the video footage I still had to make something special that you'll see below along with the music video I made for them for their final single, Threads.
