Earlier in 2017 I had the pleasure of being introduced to the band YEAR OF THE LOCUST from NY. A band that brings a real rock n roll element back into the rock scene. It only took a year for me to see them live but I was able to catch up and see the bands set when they jumped on a major tour with Starset to kick off the 2018 touring season.
At first, I was a little skeptical because a band like Starset is a little different vibe then what the boys in the LOCUST bring but I know a lot of Starset fans who have open minds so I was thrilled to see how the audience took to them. Well it didn’t take long for the guys to create a buzz that night in Worcester, MA. For one these guys are not afraid of anything they believe in their talent, they believe in the music they have created and they can bring it all to a stage of any size.
The bands set was a short one but they played a lot of energy driven songs of the bands debut album DEVOLVER like RISE UP, BROKEN NOW and MOVIN ON and then graced the audience with a brand new upbeat and driving song called SUNRISE, which really is the song I think that sold the band to the added fans they gained that night. For anyone that doesn’t know about this and it’s a must you see them because no only do they have a very interactive live show, they are the most down to earth and easy-going bunch of dudes around.
I feel very honored I got to see them in a live atmosphere and this live show they put on made me fall more in love with the songs I have been listening to for a year now. With that I am very excited to see the guys gain momentum and hopefully do a headline run in 2018 so we can admire these talents for a longer set and see a show on the bands own terms instead of opening up for others.
I was able to capture some snippets of the bands set that night and also was able to snag the bands newest single and video for SUNRISE so check both out, pick up a disc and see these guys live well worth the money.
