Sylar released their first full-length studio [11-track] album 'Seasons' on October 4th, 2018 via Hopeless Records during the #DiseaseTour; that's three days after the photos taken above. The band from Queens, NY opened up to the audience commenting it's the earliest they've played a set all tour [5PM]; yet that Chicago fans prove authority.
On Twitter; Sylar announced, "The wait is finally over! #Seasons [10.05.18] - Peep the new video for "All or Nothing" now:
Browse the HRTV archives here for a background on Knocked Loose and our review of their first full-length album, 'Laugh Tracks' (2016). The band kicked off the #DiseaseTour by announcing their set-list via Twitter; including four nostalgic tracks from their first EP: 'Pop Culture' (2014).
"Oblivion's Peak" ['16] opened the performance while "All My Friends" ['14] proceeded. The end of the setlist concluded with "Deadringer" ['16].
In the video above; we captured, "Counting Worms" ['18], "The Gospel" ['14'], "A Fetish" ['16], and a title ending of "Deadringer" ['16].
The highlight from the first Knocked Loose concert in attendance? Vocalist Bryan Garris exclaiming mid-way through the concert between a transition in tracks, "this one goes out to all the powerful women." The solidarity was incredible to witness.
Attending Beartooth performing their 2018 album 'Disease' [out since Sept. 28th] for the #DiseaseTour was a collectively empowering experience. Reflecting on the meaning behind the term "disease;" vocalist Caleb Shomo shared his journey recovering from depression carried by tracks of soulful instrumentals.
Caleb explained that there is a contagious fear that rock and roll is in peril; he allows the audience to resonate via a reflective moment of silence adding: "You and I - are not different. If you feel this way - please, tell someone. Don't go through this alone. -You are all beautiful. Your voices are amazing. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise."
The energy from the crowd was immersive throughout the concert. Throwbacks in their setlist included tracks from their previous albums: Disgusting (2014) and Aggressive (2016). Above; we feature, "Disease" ['18], "I Have A Problem" ['14], "Always Dead" ['16].
