15 years ago PJ Sykes got in the 30 Day Warranty van and shot a linear documentary of their southern US tour. We're dropping a new part of this never before seen video each day starting July 5th on our YouTube channel. If you've ever booked your own DIY tour or ever wondered what it's like, this doc is for you. Nothing has been edited out! No spoilers but some nights were good and others not so much... enjoy!
