Our first band of the night, coming out of Leeds, post-hardcore band, Kill The Silence. Opening straight away with some heavy catchy riffs, helping keep things intriguing from the offset. These guys clearly have a lot of energy to give, interacting with the crowd and giving us plenty of reasons to interact back. And in a genre saturated with rather similar sounding music, they manage to theirs feel like it stands out with solid song structures and strong vocal work, their particular sound was rather refreshing to the ears. There was great musicianship from four band members, even with a new to the band bassist and certain instrument malfunctions about halfway through, Kill The Silence performed an incredibly tight set, this combined with the rather welcoming atmosphere the audience was giving off made for a solid baseline for them to rest easy on. 7/10.
Next up in our lineup from the night is Veridian, a six-piece rock formation from Reading, only formed in 2016 and only a year it seems like they are making great progress in their scene, and it is easy to see why. Giving off similar vibes to bands like Young Guns/ Mallory Knox. Their chilled back, high energy style of music helps it feel very accessible to all audiences, their overall sound felt unique for the genre, with each individual band member instrumental parts standing out, solid vocals, unique guitar tones, and intricate drum work. Their overall energy from the set was fantastic, they know exactly what to to do to get the audience interested, giving us plenty of reasons interacted, and along with a packed out house made for a great atmosphere. 8/10.
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
The last band of the night, our headliners, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, on their 10th-anniversary tour of “don’t you fake it” which they played all the way through during their set. The incredibly intimate venue mixed with a sold-out show made for an incredibly fun and intense atmosphere throughout. My first impression of Red Jumpsuit is that their unique style of highly energetic pop punk/ pop rock seems to be a great crowd pleaser and along with great crowd interaction from the band members, and in turn which got a wonderful crowd reaction from everyone and made for a really engaging environment.
And this mixed with their great musicianship and a strong dialed in sound, which utilizing solid song structures, gripping guitar work and strong vocals just made for an honestly just great overall performance. 9/10
