Long-time post-hardcore act Blessthefall return to Summit Music Hall tonight for what one should expect to be a wild display of stage antics, pinpoint musicianship and ground-shattering in-your-face emotion. While their fourth and most recent record, Hollow Bodies, will be at the forefront of their setlist, Blessthefall won’t fail to impress with the time-tested favorites like “Hey Baby, Here’s That Song You Wanted” and “Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad” that have launched them further than they could have ever imagined.
But, Blessthefall aren’t the only treat that fans will be enjoying, as Silverstein, now in their 14th year as a band, press on, equipped with seven full records’ worth of music at their disposal. This Is How The Wind Shifts may be their most recent release and will please many of the greenhorns in the audience — as it definitely was a true return to form for the Canadian 5-piece — but distinguished fans will be anxiously waiting to hear the decade-plus old songs like “Smashed Into Pieces” that helped shape the entire post-hardcore/emo genres back in 2003.
The Amity Affliction, hailing from Queensland, AU, will be the real pleasant surprise for most. The Amity Affliction’s forthcoming record, Let The Ocean Take Me, releases in just under a month from now. This effort will undoubtedly pave the way for the rest of the bands’ career, especially within the United States, as they slowly build their following one tour at a time. With a high octane, aggressively fervent manner about them, The Amity Affliction’s live show is one that you should plan to arrive early for.
The opening acts will be filled by Secrets (Rise Records) and Heartist (Roadrunner Records).
Doors open at 6:00 pm and tickets will be $20.
