I was pretty excited to hear these guys were on the bill for the Take Action tour, I have heard a lot about them but haven’t had the opportunity to check them out. Formed in 2012 these guys are just getting started.  Releasing their debut album on Rise Records in 2013, Dangerkids have already solidified a slot on Vans Warped Tour for the summer of 2014.  Right off the bat these guys ran up to their drum kit, had a little pep talk, and they were off. Lead vocalists, Andy Bane and Tyler Smyth had great chemistry on stage, they easily bounced off one another, no one outshined the other. Sometimes with multiple vocalists, the stage can get crowded and one vocalist will be more prominent than the other. This really wasn’t the case for these guys, they were very comfortable on stage and sounded great. I am eager to see how they preform this summer on Vans Warped Tour.


I Killed the Prom Queen

This was my first time seeing Australian rockers, I Killed the Prom Queen, I had no idea how they would be able to stand up to powerhouse metalcore bands, The Devil Wears Prada and The Ghost Inside, but as soon as frontman, Jamie Hope ran out to the front of the stage and attacked the crowd head on, I had no doubts they would be able to hold their own. Hope has spot on roaring growls that could demand anyone’s attention and he had no problem jumping off the stage to get in your face. Guitarists, Jona Weinhofen and Kevin Cameron  followed Hope’s lead and just destroyed the stage. Everyone in the venue was on their feet moving around whether it be in the mosh pit or just rocking out, I am excited to see more of them in the near future.


The Ghost Inside

Keeping with the theme, this was yet another band I had yet to see live. I have always heard good things about their live show and they definitely sparked my interest. They didn’t start out quite as strong as the opening bands, taking a moment to fall into their groove. But once they were warmed up, they were fantastic. Bassist Jim Riley was the first to grab my attention, he was all over the stage, shouting lyrics back at the people in the first couple of rows and making a genuine connection with their fans.  Frontman, Jonathan Vigil had so much energy he was all over the stage falling into these stances as he screamed in your face. Towards the middle of their set a massive circle pit broke out that occupied a large portion of the venue.


The Devil Wears Prada


I have always really loved seeing The Devil Wears Prada, they are a heavy christian, metalcore band and every time I have seen them, they were better than the last. This show was no exception. Before the lights go on and the opening music is still playing over the venue speakers, Mike Hranica comes out, stomps around the stage a couple times, as soon as he looks up the stages lights up and he lets out this loud throaty scream and moves into their first song, “Sailor’s Prayer.” Hranica always reminds me of a wind – up doll, he is never in the same place for more than a couple of seconds before he is stomping and thrashing around the stage. Guitarist and backing vocalist, Jeremy DePoyster presents a clean contrast to Hranica’s raw screams, they bounce off of each other flawlessly.

This line up is a fan’s dream, Crown the Empire, Born of Osiris, We Came as Romans, August Burns Red and Asking Alexandria, under one roof.  I couldn’t be more excited to cover this show.  These are all heavy bands that have a massive following, in part because of their touring history on Vans Warped tour. Warped Tour is a great opportunity for bands to get exposure and meet other bands that down the road they can tour with. The outcome is incredible, a sold out crowd on a Wednesday night.


Crown the Empire

These guys are fairly new to scene but quickly gaining momentum. Dallas rockers Crown the Empire signed with Rise records in early 2012 and by the summer of 2013, they earned a coveted slot on Vans Warped Tour. They have since made their way back into the studio to work on their sophomore album which will be released sometime late in 2014. This was a band coming into the show I knew nothing about but the lineup was pretty solid so I had an idea of what to expect. Watching them on stage, I would have had no idea these guys were still such a young band, they had great chemistry moving around on stage and bouncing off the crowd and one another. They definitely have room to grow and improve, but for a first impression, they killed it.


Born of Osiris


This was my first time seeing Born of Osiris as well, once again trusting judgment on the bill for the evening I was all about checking them out. The most exciting thing about the band was their bassist, David Darocha, he was throwing his dreads all over the place, leaning off the side of the stage singing into the crowd’s face. Everyone else just fell short for me. I don’t expect artists to constantly be running and jumping around, but basic stuff, like stopping to have any sort of dialogue with the crowd and making yourself accessible to them is so important, when you go through a routine it shows.

We Came as Romans


Now this is a band I know and love seeing live, they have this constant energy that is just infectious. This is a six piece band featuring a clean vocalist  and an unclean vocalist, from the second the music starts, they’re off. “Unclean Vocalist” David Stephens is usually the first to jump in and gets right in the crowds face, closely followed by clean vocalist, Kyle Pavone who spent the first song kind of in the middle of the stage bouncing around. Once they transitioned into their second song, Kyle jumped off the stage and into the crowd and preformed the whole song down there. I love the accessibility of this band, they look like they genuinely love what they do and it comes across in their shows.

August Burns Red


I have always really liked seeing August Burns Red, their in your face thrashing style keeps their shows fun and interesting for fans. Jake Luhrs is a huge force in the band, his roaring vocals and powerful stances demand your attention. Guitarist, JB Brubaker and bassist, Dustin Davidson really bounce off one another’s energy, they both like to run around the stage and from time to time pent up on the monitors at the top of the stage. The band’s dynamic along is enough to draw your attention. Everyone in the crowd was moving around, moshing and shouting every word back to Luhrs. They put on a great show and really got everyone amped up.

Asking Alexandria

Their stage set up was pretty large, they had their drum kit on a raised platform with their signature banner as a backdrop. As the Fillmore went pitch black a couple lights at the top of the riser illuminated James Cassells standing behind his drum kit then one by one, the rest of the band jumped in.  I have always loved photographing this band, they’re fun, they run around and shred on their guitars and they are incredibly accessible.  Ben Bruce and Cameron Liddell usually pent up at the top of the stage and shred back to back. It makes for a pretty epic stance when you have someone in the band who plays left handed. They sounded great, but really the weakest link in the band is vocalist, Danny Worsnop. He seems so disconnected from the rest of the band and the fans and he wasn’t as vocally sound as he used to be. He sounded a little off, but the show went on and between the light show and the energy from the rest of the band, everyone really seemed to have a killer time.

This tour immediately caught my attention, everyone knows Scott Ian as the infamous guitarist for Anthrax but a speaking words tour? What exactly is that? It definitely sparked my curiosity. Going in the room was very simple with a computer set up and projector screen. When Scott came out he had jokingly started telling an excerpt from Anthony Kiedis’s autobiography, “Scar Tissue” Then stopping to admit that wasn’t his story, he was too much of a straight edge.  Then he started talking about his life and the making of Anthrax. Throughout the night he told stories about his various experiences touring and building relationships with fellow artists from there he continued talking about all their crazy experiences, the good, the bad and the ugly.



I am really glad I went, Scott was so open to talking to people, answering questions about himself or the band. The whole event was surprisingly personable and Scott is a surprisingly funny guy. It was a cool change of pace and really gave fans an opportunity to see get to know one of their favorite rockstars.

Two of the most infamous bands in Rock N Roll, Kiss and Def Leppard team up on a 42 city co-headlining tour this summer that will span North America. Tickets go on sale friday and will kick off June 23rd in Utah.

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott says he and Gene Simmons first discussed the idea of the two bands touring together when he and the Kiss bassist played some South American dates two years ago as part of a rock-and-roll all-stars tour. “It’s finally happened, which is fantastic,” Elliott says.

It’ll be the first time the two bands have shared a bill, though Stanley says, “We’ve run into each other at festivals. It just seemed to be a natural fit.” Stanley also noted that one of guitarist Phil Collen’s pre-Def Leppard bands, Girl, opened for Kiss in the U.K. during the early ’80s.

Kiss released its first albums, Kiss and Hotter Than Hell, 40 years ago, and the band will commemorate the anniversary with a slew of archival releases, including a 34-LP vinyl box set and a two-CD compilation called Kiss 40. The group will be inducted into theRock and Roll Hall of Fame April 10.

Def Leppard has been writing music for the group’s next album. “We all camped out at my house last month and wrote songs, which you will hear none of this summer,” Elliott says. Collen says he expects that album to come out in 2015.

Simmons says a dollar from each ticket sold on the tour will go to to the Wounded Warrior Project and other military non-profits. Those charitable partners include the USO, Hire a Hero, Project Resiliency/The Raven Drum Foundatio, and The Augusta Warrior Project. “Politicians fart through their mouth,” Simmons says. “Only the military makes freedom possible.”

Stanley adds that the group also plans to hire vets for its crew. “We try to find a couple of vets who want to go out and be part of the team,” he says. “This is a chance for somebody to travel and be part of the Kiss Army.”

Elliot says he doesn’t see any rivalry developing between the groups while they’re on tour. “It’s two great bands that are going to be playing for the same amount of time,” he says. “It’s joint forces. I don’t see it as competitive at all.”

Featuring headlining sets from Guns N’ Roses, Avenged Sevenfold and Kid Rock, the lineup includes more than 60 of the World’s hardest rocking acts including: Five Finger Death Punch, Slayer, Staind, Motorhead, Seether, Chevelle, Alter Bridge, Mastodon, Black Label Society, Killswitch Engage and many more (the full line-up is below). Beyond the expanded musical offerings, this year’s festival will include the return of ROTR Comedy Tent, featuring Jim Breuer, Jim Florentine and many up-and-coming comedians.

Some of the ROTR 2014 artists weigh in with their thoughts on performing this coming May:

“We are so honored to be headlining Rock on the Range. We take pride in our show and always try to outdo ourselves from the time before. Rock on the Range will be the perfect place to celebrate with our fans from all over the world and put on the killer show that they have come to expect from us. We are pulling out all the stops.”

–M. Shadows, Avenged Sevenfold

“We have had legendary shows at ROTR. We always try to arrange our tour schedules so we can be part of this festival. It’s just a must do. Rock On The Range has become a destination event where people travel to from all over the country, if not all over the world.”

–Zoltan, Five Finger Death Punch

“Super excited to be a part of Rock On The Range this year!! I think it’s awesome to have an edgy band like Slayer on board for this round. Can’t wait to hit the stage!!!”

“Sure it’s important to do this festival for the bands, but mostly we do it for the incredibly loyal rock fans…They truly are the lifeblood of Rock on the Range, and it’s really all about the value proposition to them,” commented Joe Litvag, Co-Executive Producer of ROTR for AEG Live. “So now we come with GnR, Avenged Sevenfold, Kid Rock and more than 60 other amazing bands starting at $99 to deliver on our commitment of ‘value’ to rock fans everywhere…It’s going to be an unforgettable weekend!”

“When ROTR sold out last year we knew the bar had to be raised. With these headliners along with Five Finger Death Punch, Slayer, Motorhead, Staind, Seether and so many more, there is no doubt now that Rock On The Range has become THE #1 rock festival.” said Gary Spivack, Co- Executive Producer of ROTR. “And since year one, Monster Energy has been a partner at the festival and we are excited to announce their expanding support; their dedication to the genre as well as breaking new artists is second to none.”

“Rock on the Range has emerged as a powerhouse event for our organization, the City of Columbus and rock fans from around the country,” said Columbus Crew President Mark McCullers. “We have invested in some significant facility improvements that will add to the Ranger experience and this year’s event will be another blockbuster show.”

Presented by Danny Wimmer Presents, AEG LIVE and Crew Stadium, ROCK ON THE RANGE is a multi-stage music and lifestyle event featuring a potent lineup of bands on three stages and is proud to be sponsored by Monster Energy, who return as the Main Stage sponsor; Crazy Dave’s Music Experience (an interactive exhibit that features all the elements that are involved in making music in in a professional band setting); the Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands Contest (launching this Spring for your chance to play the stage at ROTR).

The nationally renowned festival, part of the World’s Loudest Month Festival Series, is centrally located in the heart of the country and has annually drawn huge weekend crowds since its inception in 2007, including a sold-out crowd of over 103,000 fans in 2013.

A friend of mine told me that these guys were great live and I would really like their music, so needless to say I was pretty excited to see them. As soon as they started playing I fell in love. They have a very old school AC/DC / bluesy sound with heavy guitar riffs and loud screaming vocals. They were a little more subdue on stage then the other acts of the evening but they had a great presence that is only going to improve with time.  I think the biggest draw back was that they were so drastically different from the other bands on the bill. Had Airbourne been there it may have been a different story since they seem to fall in a similar rock genera, but I noticed a lack of reaction from the crowd. They are quite the contrast from Buckcherry’s loud, fast style and unfortunately they just didn’t translate well for some of the people in the crowd. Though I think they are a killer band, I am looking forward to watching them mature and do big things in the future.




The first time I had seen Buckcherry was last summer at Carolina Rebellion, Josh Todd was fighting a cold and it was raining. I have a lot of respect for them to come out and playing when they had so many components clearly fighting against them. I was excited to get the opportunity to see them play again and this time, in a little more controlled setting.  Off the bat the first thing I noticed was their energy, everyone came running out and it was madness. Josh was in the middle dancing and jumping all over the stage, while Keith Nelson and Stevie D. shredded on guitar on either side of the stage. They were exactly what I had expected and understandably a lot more active then the previous time I had seen them in Carolina. One of my biggest issues with this band though is it feels like they  have lost the passion, while they are jumping around and slinging guitars around their backs, but there was nothing behind it. It felt like they were just going through the motions. Unfortunately it happens, I have seen this problem with numerous bands and between constant touring and everything being so regimented it is easy to get a little lost. Stevie D. was the one who felt the most personable to me, he was very aware of the crowd and was able to make a connection with them, even something as simple as making a face at a fan or smiling at them can make their night. Overall I enjoy these guys, I dig their music, but I am interested to see where they take their set in another year or two.

American pop duo Karmin kicked off their first ever headlining tour titled Pulses in Baltimore, MD at Baltimore Soundstage for an intimate and dedicated crowd. They performed songs from their EP Hello and their upcoming LP Pulses as well as a couple of covers which they are so famous for.

It’s amazing to see how successful this duo has become. They got their start on YouTube, covering hip hop chart toppers like “Look At Me Now” by Chris Brown, “6 Foot 7 Foot” by Lil Wayne, and “Super Bass” by Nicki Minaj. Covering songs like that showed off not only Amy’s amazing vocal chords but her rap skills as well.

Amy and Nick are very personable and fun on stage. They often interact with the crowd and they both show off their dance moves when performing. You can tell from their banter on stage between songs that Amy and Nick are very down to Earth people. Amy shared a story about the unfortunate battle with their label of them telling her that if she wants to be a girl who raps, she has to rap like a brat. She then stated she wants and will rap like her idols Jay-Z and Kanye West. As she told this story, she was speaking into a microphone that had a vocal effect on it for Nick’s deep vocal part in their single “Acapella” making her sound like a man, which got a lot of chuckles from the crowd. Amy also stated that no one should ever work with their significant other, as she and Nick are, because it throws some additional challenges into their relationship and their music, but they make it work.

Karmin is a must see live band, as they are full of energy, and their songs are fun and danceable. Their tour spans across major cities in the United States through February 22nd. You should definitely plan to see them if they come through your town!

Karmin setlist:

  1. Intro
  2. I Want It All
  3. Hello
  4. Pulses
  5. Too Many Fish / Thrift Shop (cover)
  6. Drifter
  7. Acapella
