There’s plenty of reasons why concertgoers might get kicked out of a show; moshing, stagediving, crowdsurfing, being drunk and disorderly, and many more that we don’t have time to list. While Machine Head members Phil Demmel and Dave McClain will be departing the veteran metal act after their final show November 24th, apparently going out with a “bang” has a new meaning for a couple who got kicked out of the band’s show in San Diego.
Yes, we’re absolutely serious on this one. At the band’s recent show in San Diego supporting their newest record Catharsis, “complete insanity” ensued when apparently a couple was caught and kicked out of the show for entering the “bone zone”. In the front row, no less. Shockingly, the couple didn’t win the band’s famed Most Valuable Rager shirt, but that’s probably because they didn’t get to finish. Or did they?
Sea of Trees are a San Diego-based progressive post-hardcore band that should be on your radar, if they are not already. Led by the dual-vocal interplay of Sasha Gordy and Aldrynne Eslava, this group’s dynamic sound recalls everything from contemporary genre stars Dance Gavin Dance, to classic touchstones such as The Used.
Today, Sea of Trees is premiering their new EP “Boss Battle!” exclusively on The New Fury. I spoke to the band’s vocalists about the inspiration behind the new tracks, which you can stream below.
Our resident photographer Jillian Ragsdale snapped some photos of Sumerian Records rock band Palaye Royale at San Diego’s SOMA venue over the weekend. The band, whose rabid fanbase is a unique entity of its own, is supporting Sleeping With Sirens on their Gossip album release tour. Check out the photos below!
Dare I say, the emo revival is alive and well? With my weak spot for Tiny Moving Parts and Empire Empire (I Was a Lonely Estate) I couldn’t stop listening to the Love, Too Much Too Soon EP from San Diego band Outlook.
