    The thenewno2 hit the trail along with their rock peers and set out to conquer the blazing heat of a Coachella stage last weekend. We wanted to see how the first timers would handle the experience, so we gave drummer Oli Hecks a camera to document their journey. Check out his photo diary below, and may the force be with you.

    Words by Oli Hecks:
    I love seeing these on the way to the desert. There should be more of them out there. They are very apt to a lot of what we are saying on the album.

    Down time after we got there. Being in a band is really hard...... Not so many windmills here.

    I took this panoramic on my iPhone when the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were playing and the sun was starting to set behind the mountains. They were one of the bands I wanted to see...and I did. They rocked it and are great live!

    I saw this sticker of our logo on a lamp post. Nice to see people helping spread the word.
