Normally you wouldn’t expect see deathcore giants, an emo rapper and metalcore masters on one tour, but that’s exactly what fans experienced on the aptly-named Manic Tour, which came through Denver’s Summit on April 29th. Wage War brought a diverse lineup, consisting of nothing,nowehere. and Spite out on the road with them for a one of a kind show, and it was flawless from start to finish, proving that mixed-genre bills are not a thing of the past.
Spite opened the show with Darius Tehrani’s demonic vocals encouraging the crowd mosh and scream along with them. Spite always brings massive energy that is only comparable to a bull in a china shop with the way that their fans lose their minds during their set. This easily built the energy for nothing,nowhere.’s set. While nothing,nowhere. might seem like a bit of an oddball on the bill for some, that didn’t stop frontman Joe Mulherin from earning the crowd’s love, and by the end of their set, everyone was jumping around, singing and having fun. With his recent release of new album, VOID ETERNAL, he got everyone in the feels playing heavy hitters featuring artists like Underoath, Pete Wentz, and Will Ramos.
Finishing off the show was the one and only Wage War. The Manic Tour was a fitting title for their recent album and tour, as the band put on a chaotic and entrancing set. Briton Bond made sure nobody looked away from that stage throughout their nineteen song set, lest they miss some of the excitement. By the end of the show, fans eyes were red from the tears, bodies sore from the pit, and throat raw from screaming, making it one show you didn’t want to miss.
