A Day To Remember made it a night to remember with a SOLD OUT stop at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas, out on the road in continued support of their album Bad Vibrations released August of 2016 that debuted #1 Top Current Album and #2 Top 200 on Billboard.
The Bowl was packed - I mean PACKED - for a show that started out strong with opening Wage War, a relatively newer band in the metalcore scene also out in support of their own Deadweight album, a second for them and released on Fearless Records just a couple days after the Vegas show. ADTR’s Andrew Wade and Jeremy McKinnon were on hand for production of the album, and was a much anticipated follow up to Wage War's Blueprint from 2015. A little closer than 'six degrees' going on here... Wage War played a full set that included songs from Blueprint and new single “Witness” from Deadweight.
Jeremy McKinnon and A Day To Remember came out swinging, the crowd surfing got real and the fists shot the air as ADTR played a long set with hits from their extensive catalogue, from “All I Want” to “Right Back at it Again” to “End of Me” through last years Bad Vibrations' “Paranoia” and “Naivety”. The band kept the energy high and the pace fast though 15 songs that culminated in an encore that included “The Downfall of Us All”.
ADTR Wage Warand together made for a metalcore dream show, with both bands out with new music and a united fan base that came out en force in Vegas. I asked a couple of the fans who were at front center barricade what time they got there to get their prized spot - and my jaw fell open when they said they had been there since 8am. Thats some serious fan commitment. And for this night both bands proved they were worth it.
