Texas rockers Nothing More are out touring the US on which started out as a co-headline tour with Asking Alexandria but due to Danny Worsnop’s throat infection back in early June, Nothing More are now the sole headliner along with support from Atreyu and Eva Under Fire. The tour made a stop in Anaheim, CA at House of Blues on Wednesday June 15 for a kick-ass night of music.
It’s been 5 years since the last Nothing More album with the next disc due out later this year but the band has released two killer singles “Turn It Up Like (Stand in the Fire)” and “Tired of Winning” both of which were played on this night.
Vocalist Jonny Hawkins, guitarist Mark Vollelunga, bass player Daniel Oliver along with drummer Ben Anderson put on a visual and audio spectacle with their flavor of progressive/modern metal with an element of heaviness that makes them stand out from all their peers.
Hawkins brought out the infamous “Scorpion Tail” drum contraption early in the show and is always a fan favorite as it quite a spectacle. The crowd was energetic and rowdy as the band took them through a 14-song journey ending with the up-tempo banger “This Is the Time (Ballast)”.
Atreyu played somewhat of a hometown show with roots up the road in Yorba Linda. The band continues to kick-ass live now that Alex Varkatzas has left the band and Brandon Saller has taken over on vocals. Also openers Eva Under Fire were a force to be reckoned with and are worthy of arriving early to catch their set.
