It seems like every month of 2017, a new “album of the year” dropped. Whether it was Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. that changed your life or if it was a smaller, unsigned artist like Virginia post-hardcore band pulses. that was pumping through your speakers throughout the majority of the year, there’s no denying that 2017 was a great year for music.

Movements Feel Something

Music is a strange, beautiful thing. It allows artists to wear their hearts on their sleeves and open up to complete strangers while giving listeners the chance to find comfort and community in their shared experiences with someone they might not ever meet. Music at its core serves to make people feel something, and Movements have tapped into just that on their full-length debut album. On the aptly titled Feel Something, the Southern California quartet opens up in hopes that someone will connect with it.

When Pierce The Veil came through Denver for the second date of their Misadventures tour, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. The band dropped their new album, Misadventures less than a month prior, and were set to play it full, which seemed pretty risky. What if fans weren’t feeling it? What if they wanted to hear some older music? What would the turnout be like? Honestly, I don’t know why I wondered any of this, because it’s Pierce The Veil, for crying out loud. With such a dedicated fanbase (people were lining up outside the venue starting at four in the morning) it was no surprise that everyone knew every word to every song the band played, and with two strong supporting acts to open, the show was stellar from start to finish.
