THE band I was most stoked to see at Toronto’s Warped, and I was lucky to make it just in time from Ottawa as they played an early set. Architects killed it as usual with an insane performance. Fronted by vocalist Sam Carter, the boys really got the energy going and the crowd moving, jumping, singing, and even on their knees! I have seen them perform a few times in the past and they never ever disappoint! Absolutely unreal show.

We Came As Romans ended the 2013 Warped Tour festival with an insane performance, playing for a HUGE crowd, all of Warped Tour came out the see the band that would end the day! Their set included some past songs, some from their upcoming album (released July 23rd) and even a cover! It may have rained during their set but that sure didn’t stop people from having a good time!

I have to admit this was the performance I most anticipated throughout the day and I wish I could have gone in with the crowd! Blessthefall performed a KILLER SET performing a vast number of songs from their latest album on top of playing a song from their (at the time) upcoming album (‘You wear a crown but you’re no king’), which was also their first single. It may have been pouring during their set but Beau got the crowd moving, and it’s safe to say that Blessthefall made sure no one cared about the cold rain!

When three solid bands come to town you are almost guaranteed a great show. We were there the other night as Stars in Stereo, Redlight King and Halestorm all took the stage. Lzzy Hale and Halestorm played a sold out show at Terminal 5. Playing a solid set of 13 songs, she paused a moment to explain that she had been getting over a cold from her UK tour. Judging from the crowd they would have never been able to tell as her voice was crisp and tight. Redlight King and Stars in Stereo are ones to WATCH in the next few years.

Last time Cancer Bats came to Reading they were playing in a tent in a field to 10,000 people. This time the venue is lot more intimate, even hotter and certainly more suited to the chaotic thrash-punk of the Canadian outfit who manage to turn a sold-out venue into one big pit despite attempts to put a halt to the carnage by the venue’s over zealous security.
