Band on the run
Canadian indie-folk band The Burning Hell are including Austria in an attempt to set a new world record for playing the most shows in the most countries in twenty-four hours.
Beginning in Germany, the band will play ten concerts across Europe, ending in Slovenia 24 hours later. They will be in Austria on July 7 where they will be playing in Innsbruck at Down Town Sound at 11am.
A documentary film of the band’s adventure will chronicle every step of the marathon.
On tour in 2011, the band played four shows in four countries in 24 hours by accident. Looking into the record they discovered that Vincente Patiz currently holds the Guinness record for 8, while American guitarist Jeff Aug holds the unofficial record at 9.
Like a day-long version of a regular tour for small bands, the world record tour will include festival performances, house-shows, shows in record stores, bars and cafes throughout Europe.
The Burning Hell dedicates this record attempt to the kind and loving DIY scenes that operate throughout the world and the hard-working bands and artists who tour regardless of obstacles that might stand in their way.
