Last night, California rock band, New Years Day, stormed the Cleveland Agora. They are about halfway through The Other Side Tour. Supporting acts include Get Scared, Eyes Set To Kill, The Relapse Symphony, Darksiderz, and Kevlar.
Pennsylvania-based Kevlar opened up the show with their timeless, hard rock qualities. The female-fronted quartet released an EP titled The Void this past summer. Highlights of their engaging set included a cover of Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” and their latest single, “Never Mine, Nevermind.”
Next up was ‘hardstyle/industrial’ act, Darksiderz. Musician Aaron Wallace started the solo project in 2010. He has since toured with acts including William Control and Combichrist. He opened up the set with a mashup of “Personal Jesus” and AFI’s “Miss Murder.” Somewhat of an atypical act, the crowd responded well and turned the ballroom into quite the dance party. Keep an eye out for our interview with Darksiderz.
The female-fronted Eyes Set to Kill and The Relapse Symphony came next. Arizona-based metal/rock band, Eyes Set To Kill has strong vocals and stage presence. By fan request, the band played their hit “Darling” from their 2009 debut record.
The Relapse Symphony released their third full-length Born to Burn this past July. They’ve gained touring experience from Warped Tour and working with other acts such as Black Veil Brides.
Utah-based band, Get Scared, is currently promoting the release of their upcoming full-length, Demons. The highlight of their set was the performance of the band’s single, “Buried Alive,” and a new song titled “Rest In Piece.” The rest of the Demons record will be released on October 30th. In the meantime, check out the music video for “Buried Alive” and keep an eye out for our interview with Get Scared.
Finally, New Years Day came out to play a lengthy and hardy set. The band was on Warped Tour this past summer to help promote their new record, Malevolence. The band set out on The Other Side tour immediately following its release on October 2nd. Emotionally raw and vulnerable, Malevolence draws from the band’s past experiences and hardships. Be sure to check out the latest music video for the track, “Malevolence,” below.
