il sogno del marinaio in boston, ma on october 13, 2014 - photo by marco werman

   the story of il sogno del marinaio (which in italian means "the sailor's dream") began w/an idea from guitarman stefano pilia... in the fall of 2009 he had got an offer to play a festival in cesena (italy) and thought it might be interesting for him and his drummerman friend andrea belfi to bring aboard bassman mike watt and create a new trio for the gig. this led to a mini-tour which in turn resulted in them recording their debut album to bring aboard "la busta gialla" during three days in the middle of it. cuz of all the band members being parts of other bands and projs, the release of this album was put off 'til all three had free time which ended up being our euro tour 2013 which was the first full-on sally-forth for the band.

   we learned from that experience that maybe it's good to get the record out kind right after you make it and of course tour it as the dust is clearing just after it drops. that's why we decided to record our second album "canto secondo" and then followed up after its release two weeks later w/a fiftyone gigs in fiftyone days u.s. tour. that was in the fall of 2014 and we had a good time (you can read the diary here) but damn if we ain't ever played this stuff in europe and hence the main reason for this tour: we'd like to play all the songs from "canto secondo" for folks in europe, especially cuz of the fact that two-thirds of the group are europeans!

   booking this tour is ricky over at swamp so if any of you got any ideas for him redgarding il sogno del marinaio and this tour, please reach out to him here.
