What better way to celebrate the month of October than with Motionless in White out on their Trick ‘R Treat Tour, featuring support from Twiztid, After The Burial, and We Came As Romans? Motionless in White recently released their fifth studio album, Disguise, and have put together a new tour with quite an eclectic lineup to support them.
Twiztid is an American hip-hop duo from Detroit, and is composed of Jamie Spaniolo and Paul Methric, who use the stage names Jamie Madrox and Monoxide Child. They also feature an amazing drummer, Drayven Davidson, who is an absolute BEAST and super entertaining. Formed in 1997 they have an immense discography featuring eleven studio albums, ten compilation albums, ten EPs, and one mixtape. Often referred to as “horrorcore” their style and image fits well with MIW, and this is not the first time that they have shared the same stage, and they were the perfect way to kick off an evening of ghoulish live music.
American metalcore band After the Burial, has six studio albums, including their April 2019 release, Evergreen, and are currently signed with Sumerian Records. The band consists of founding member Trent Hafdahl (guitar, clean vocals, and programming), Anthony Notarmaso (lead vocals), Dan Carle (drums), and Adrian Oropeza (bass). After The Burial tore through their seven-song set and lit the crowd on fire with hits like "Lost in the Static", "Aspiration", and "A Wolf Amongst Ravens", with a few songs from their latest album sandwiched in between. The crowd responded with heavy moshing, and the crowd surfers began to pour over the barrier. The energy was palpable, and the set ended all too quickly for my liking. This was my first time seeing them perform live and I really wanted more.
We Came As Romans (WCAR), an American metalcore/post-hardcore band from Michigan, has gone through one name change and multiple lineup changes since they formed in 2005. WCAR has released two EPs and five full-length albums, and have another in the works, from which they have released two new singles. WCAR currently is Dave Stephens (vocals), Joshua Moore (guitar, backing vocals), Lou Cotton (guitar), Andy Glass (bass, backing vocals), and David Puckett (drums). On August 25th of last
