Sheffield Metalcore outfit "While She Sleeps"
kick off the evening with a lot more than a bang.
You'd think they were the headline act with how
much effort they put into a very solid set. It
was a shame that they didn't have too many dedicated
fans here to see them and they're somewhat aggressive
demanding for crowd interaction didn't do them
any favours with the rest of the crowd. Unfortunate
considering the presence they held themselves
with on stage is that of a band that is worthy
of the level of hype they are receiving.
There For Tomorrow certainly had a large fan base
in the crowd and rightly so, "A Little Faster"
earned the band some heavy critical acclaim and
with their new album waiting in the wings, their
fans are certainly hungry for more.
They put out a very enjoyable set, fitting in
some good fan favourites like "Pages"
and title track "A Little Faster" while
having a good laugh and a joke with the crowd.
It was a little apparent that they felt a little
bit out of place being the "lighter"
band on the tour, being slightly reserved in the
initial few songs, but they hyped up nicely as
they built rapport and won over the crowd.
Having not seen Silverstein in a few years, I
was curious to see if they had changed at all,
hopping they would be as good as the last time
I saw them.
All I can say is, they certainly are a band that
are constantly out doing themselves and surpassed
all my expectations of what I imagined they would
be like this far within their first two songs.
"Scarfice" especially blew me away,
Shane Told is still the ever amazing front man,
and with a line up that hasn't changed in over
8 years, it's easy to understand how they not
only put out the amazing music that they do, but
also to deliver it with such passion, energy and
Keeping everyone happy, they push out a very pleasing
set with classic tracks like "Your Sword
Vs My Dagger" And "Smashed Into Pieces"
as well as an abundance of their newer material.
Always talking to the crowd and enjoying their
company, I will definitely be one of the many
in the crowd holding them to their promise to
come back to the UK sometime soon, and I'd suggest
that everyone else should be there when they do.
While She Sleeps 3/5
There For Tomorrow 3/5
