Geez, I don’t even know where to begin with this review, this show was just completely killer. Fight the Fade hit the stage and just destroyed it. Their mix of melody heavy music and energetic performance made this one to remember for a very long time to come. Coming out of the gate with the head bang inducing “Revolution” they stormed the stage like madmen looking to make a point and boy did they ever accomplish that goal! From the start of the next song and in my opinion one of their best songs “What We Know” I just knew I was in for an amazing show, if its one thing this band proved to me its that you don’t need a huge production to “WOW” a crowd. Coming through the speakers next was none other than their awesome cover of Adele’s hit song “Set Fire to the Rain” this drum/vocal heavy cover is great, and makes for a live staple from Fight the Fade! Up next was my favorite song from them, the emotion heavy “Tomorrow”, this song is about losing someone close to you and wishing you would have done things differently, now with such content you can only assume you are in for an emotional performance and that could not have been anymore true, so powerful and emotional! A few tracks later we hit the riff heavy “Breaking Perceptions”, this one is a head banger and one to be played live for years to come with a killer intro and midsection, can’t help but want to break your neck to this one! Last came their hit “House of Cards”, they could not have ended the show any better than they did with their energetic performance and one of the opening bands hitting the stage and covering Fight the Fade in toilet paper!

Go see this band if you get a chance, not only are they out spreading a good message with their music but they also know how to bring it live! I feel they can hold their own with other large acts when it comes to performance, so much energy and talent on one stage was hard to handle! Be on the look out for these guys as I am sure they will be HUGE one day playing theatres and arenas!!
