Thrice Farewell Tour with Animals As Leaders and o’brother

Since May 4th, post-hardcore legends Thrice have been on a nationwide farewell tour. Supporting them on this tour are Animals as Leaders and o’brother. On May 16th, their farewell tour rolled through Orlando’s House of Blues.

The night began with indie-post rock band o’brother. Over the past two years, o’brother has become one of my favorite touring bands. Their 30-minute set on this tour is equal parts loud and haunting, and their songs are complex, but subtly catchy. Their show included several songs from their new album, “Garden Window”.
Following o’bro was Animals as Leaders. Their unique style of instrumental rock is very interesting, to say the least. If you haven’t heard of AAL, they are comprised of one drummer and two guitar players, both of whom play 8-string, detuned guitars. Their lights show is very dark, but projected visualizations of their music flash on the stage.  Read the rest of this entry

Whitechapel -The Recorruptour

Heavy metal rockers Whitechapel have been on the road since the beginning of March on The Recorruptour sponsored by Rockstar Energy Drink and Alternative Press. At their stop last night in Orlando at the House Of Blues, the crowd was small, but ready to rock! Bathed by never ending strobe lights, the band took to the stage, opening with “Section 8″ and continued right into Breeding Violence.” The band only played 13 songs, a rather short set for a headline tour, but none the less, those 13 songs brought the rowdy fans pummeling over the barricade.

The World Is Ours Tour

The World Is Ours tour is bringing madness and mayhem to venues across the US. Co-headlined by Escape The Fate and Attack Attack, along with The Word Alive, Mest, and Secrets, fans couldn’t buy tickets fast enough! Earlier this week in Orlando at the House Of Blues, the tour drew hundreds of fans ready to rock out and have a good time. After a rather bland set from both Secrets and Mest, The Word Alive set the place on fire with hardcore breakdowns and melodic screams. With a special guest vocal appearance by Craig from ETF, Telle and crew got the crowd amped for the rest of the night. Attack Attack was up next, with a set decked out with more ramps and staircases than an arena rock concert. Read the rest of this entry
