Nowadays there's no way to make a living in the music business without hitting the road. And yes, that's true even for a chart-topping band like Gym Class Heroes. In the past few weeks alone, GCH finished their European tour, went straight to Indianapolis for Super Bowl week, and hit the road again for a U.S. tour—including selected dates with T-Pain. Obviously, these guys stay on the grind. Honestly, it might be a while before they get their "Ass Back Home."

So we figured it would be cool to catch up with the crew as they criss-crossed the U.S. and they agreed to bless us with The Gym Class Heroes Tour Diary. We're going to get a first-hand look at what really goes down when these guys aren't on stage. Today's entry features pictures and blurbs written by the band's dummer and co-founder Matt McGinley. Stay tuned for more diary entries from each member of the band. OK, time to hit the road.
