We talked to Sven de Caluwé of Belgian brutalists Aborted yesterday in San Francisco.

Sven really elaborated on the differing aspects of touring Europe vs. the United States nowadays, confirming some long-held suspicions that it’s just better in Europe.  Hopefully, it’s not that bad Stateside as Aborted finish up their current tour with Origin and Cattle Decapitation.

Note to U.S. venues:  Stop treating artists like shit!
