ISSUES kicked off the night with an enthusiastic performance for the growing crowd. Excellent tight drumming from Josh Manuel and a mammoth performance on bass from Skyler Acord built the platform for the twin vocals of Tyler Carter and Michael Bohn, who often displayed some high-quality R & B singing, with really clean, strong harmonies. There is a variety in the set list that covers extreme metalcore through to some progressive melodic metal, and the pop angle the band coined as ‘New Nu Metal’, which probably stems from the fact these guys have been doing their stuff for over 5 years, and we got a selection of material displaying their development, as well as from the new record, Headspace.

adtr_
Sydney band TONIGHT ALIVE have been added to all dates on the forthcoming A DAY TO REMEMBER tour. These will be their first Australian shows since the release of their third album, Limitless, which was released in March and debuted at #6 on the ARIA Charts.

Limitless has been a worldwide success, with the band making waves across Europe and North America this year including appearances at Warped Tour in the USA, and appearing on the cover of UK magazines Rock Sound and Kerrang. Earlier this year, they performed as one of the UNIFY 16 headliners and sold out their national single tour in January. In July, Tonight Alive vocalist Jenna McDougall collaborated with Parkway Drive on a new track called “Into The Dark”.

TONIGHT ALIVE will join an incredible line-up that also includes Californian metalcore act OF MICE & MEN, who are currently touring America with Slipknot and have their new album Cold World due out in September.

Meanwhile, A DAY TO REMEMBER continue to build massive anticipation for their forthcoming album Bad Vibrations (September 2) with the release of “Naivety,” the latest single to be released from their new record.

After an explosive day 1, it was time for punters to prepare themselves with another offering of head banging, arm swinging, all round chaos that Soundwave always ensues. Remarkably the grounds were spotless as rejuvenated faces filled the area once more.

Live Review : Soundwave Festival 2015 – Brisbane

By Morgan Van Ewyk
Slash at Soundwave Festival 2015 - Brisbane
Battling the unrelenting humidity was one hundred percent worth the sweaty mess I had become, just to see the amazing talent on show this year at the Brisbane RNA Showgrounds. However, a welcome addition for Brisbane and Sydney venues, that would’ve been dearly missed in Melbourne and Adelaide, was the ‘Comfort Zones’ which provided lucky ticket holders an experience of luxurious proportions with clean amenities, massage services, exclusive bar service and deliciously prepared barista coffee. The perfect opportunity to recharge the batteries.

The Getaway Plan with Tonight Alive @ Metro Theatre, Sydney 11 February 2011 [Live Review]

Review: Amy Lee Freshwater

  It’s not surprising The Getaway Plan sold out two shows in one day at the Metro Theatre, they were at the height of their career when the announcement was made that they were breaking up, and the anticipation to see whether they still rock built up a big response to this reformation tour. Joining them on tour were Melbourne friends Secrets In Scale and Sydney band Tonight Alive.

Managing to catch the end of Secrets In Scale, general consensus from the crowd was that they played a decent set and really got everyone pumped for the remainder of the night.

Tonight Alive took to the stage to a loud and excited audience. Rarely do I witness such enthusiasm for a support band, but Tonight Alive took it right in their stride and used that energy to their advantage pushing the same amount of energy, if not more, right back out at the audience in order to create an incredibly impressive set. They played something to please everyone, old song, new song, love song, heavy song, sing-a-long song. Tracks included My Favourite Thing, Revenge and its Thrills and closed out with Wasting Away, but the highlight for many was a cover song ‘In My Eyes’, the original by band Rufio. A notable set from this fitting support act who in no time will be headlining venues such as the Metro I’m sure.

Seeing the audience during the changeover time between bands reminded me of being a little mosh teenager sweating it out at the front just to be in a good spot for my favourite band. Even though this was the over 18’s show, people were going nuts pushing and shoving during the whole half hour trying to be front and centre for The Getaway Plan. Expecting them to come out and smash us with a hit, the set began with the melodic ‘Move Along’, a new song, that somehow super-fans already knew the words to. Soon enough they did break out into songs ‘Streetlight’, ‘Sleep Spindles’ and ‘New Medicine’ from their album Other Voices, Other Rooms. Four tracks in and the stage backdrop lit up with fairy lights, it was a bit of an ‘aww’ moment.

It was clear by now that The Getaway Plan were enjoying playing together again, and that their time apart doing other projects has massively improved their dynamic as a band. Noticeable improvements both musically and performance wise from guitarist Clint, who has been playing with The Amity Affliction whilst being on a break from TGP. The announcement from singer Matthew Wright that the band are in the process of recording a new album received an overwhelming response from the crowd, only fueling the fact that their popularity is going to increase second time round. The set built in intensity throughout the show, ‘Red Flag’ was a definite highlight with Wright getting his scream on and the band breaking down that song and just ripping like I’ve never heard them before. Another new song made it into the setlist and Wrights voice may have been tiring from the former song, as he introduced back onto the stage the singer from Tonight Alive to lend her killer vocals to this one. The band closed out the set with an old favourite ‘Where The City Meets The Sea’ which triggered a loud sing-a-long, to the point where Wrights voice was almost unheard. Inspired by the ever-waiting audience, TGP returned to the stage for a two song encore comprising of two more from their debut album, ended the night perfectly.

This band has reaffirmed their place in the Australian music scene, and no doubt their next record will take off as their first one did, lets hope they stick together for the long run this time round.
