A Tour of The Concrete Jungle’s stop at Union Transfer next Tuesday, December 6th, has been sold-out for quite a while now. And while beyond-buzzy Richmond metalcore enthusiasts Bad Omens are headlining, and likely provided the biggest incentive for fans to get their tickets early, the tour’s support acts are equally as impressive. Opening the evening is San Diego post-hardcore group Thousand Below, followed by Australian symphonic deathcore outfit Make Them Suffer (who we got to know last July…) However, there’s a good chance that the highlight of the night will come from Dayseeker, who will be providing direct support for Bad Omens. Last month the SoCal post-hardcore band released Dark Sun – their fifth full-length – on Spinefarm. Singer Rory Rodriguez has explained, “Dark Sun is a collection of songs that deeply explored my personal life over the last two years. Most of it is written about my father’s passing, about how it felt like the sun burned out the day he passed, and how the world is a little darker without him in it.” Hysteria Mag says, “A focus on heartache and vulnerability makes LP5 a must-listen… Ultimately, this is a record that pushes the boundaries while pushing the post-hardcore genre forward.” And this live performance (courtesy of Caliber TV) of Dark Sun’s lead single, “Neon Grave,” from Dayseeker’s headlining tour earlier this year proves that their live show is not to be missed.
