UTG PHOTOS: Hollow Bodies Tour (5/1/14)

Hollow-Bodies-Tour-Feature

Under The Gun’s Head of Photography, Corbin Alvae, stopped over at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit, MI on May 1 to catch the Hollow Bodies Tour.

First off, before I get into everything, I just want to say how relieved I am that it’s no longer cold in my home state of Michigan. If you’ve seen any of my past photo sets from this year, you’ll know how much I despise the cold weather and utterly love the warm weather. So I went and attended what has been known as The Hollow Bodies Tour, which has swept through the entire U.S., melting faces. I was excited to catch this tour, since it was jam-packed with a ton of solid acts, plus it was at one of my favorite Detroit venues, St. Andrews Hall.

The tour kicked off with Heartist, a metal band from California, and let me tell you, they didn’t disappoint whatsoever — they knew exactly what they had to do to open the tour up.

Next up we had Secrets, another metal band from Cali that really packed a punch as well. They’re a very interactive band and definitely a great group to watch and get into.

After them, we had Australian metal band The Amity Affliction. I had never seen these fellas live but I’ve listened to them a bunch before, so I was excited to see what they had, and holy shit did they bring it; no holds barred and super impressive.

After TAA, Silverstein took the stage. I’ve listened to these guys ever since I came across their album Discovering The Waterfront when I was in middle school and instantly became a fan. Getting the opportunity to photograph them live years later was definitely an experience I won’t forget.

Finally, our headliner blessthefall took to the stage, ready as can be to melt the faces of their fans screaming their name in the crowd. Everyone in the whole crowd was wild from start to finish and BTF did not hold back to give these fans the performance they deserved. From an amazing light production to the hard hitting tracks, blessthefall ended the night perfectly, leaving everyone with an unforgettable experience.
