Summer and vacations are slowly leaving us and everyone’s slowly getting back to their daily routine. Fall is just around the corner, but a new concert-season is also upon us! With many artists touring between now and the end of the year, we have put together a small list of tours we do recommend. What is yours?
1.The Story So Far + Citizen & All Get Out
After taking quite some time to recess and reflect on themselves, The Story So Far have just released their third full length “Proper Dose” on September 21st. In this occasion, they have announced their return to Europe, starting this month, with no other guests than Citizen and All Get Out. This should be interesting, since The Story So Far have seemingly been taking a new turn with this release. Stops will include Antwerp, Amsterdam and Paris and many of them are selling out already. Get your tickets now!
2. Jesse Barnett (Stick To Your Guns / Trade Wind)
Jesse Barnett’s creativity has no boundaries and he recently launched a new project as a solo artist called Wish You Were Here, as well as a song called No Say. Later on, the singer announced a solo tour, prior to STYG’s headliner in Europe this winter. Barnett will be performing acoustic, intimate shows, which will include stripped back renditions of Stick To Your Guns’ and Trade Wind’s (Jesse’s current bands) music, across Europe.
3. Julien Baker / Becca Mancari
Since her inception a couple years ago, singer-songwriter Julien Baker has been mesmerizing crowds around the world, with her soul-crushing tracks and fine lyricism. She’s currently on tour in Europe, with Becca Mancari as a guest and we strongly recommend you to go watch her as it’s probably going to be one of the most intense experiences you’ll have.
4. Movements + I The Mighty & Muskets
Movements are certainly one of the most touching bands we’ve listened to in a while and their live performances are no exception. The addition of special guests I, The Mighty and Muskets can only make things better. If you make it to any of these shows, you’re in for a treat! Get your tickets now.
5. Spanish Love Songs + Ducking Punches
Spanish Love Songs have released ‘Schmaltz’, one of our favorite punk albums this year. In support of the release, they will be touring in Europe alongside the mighty Ducking Punches and We Bless This Mess and we believe these shows are going to be some of the best parties of the end of this year. Get involved!
6. IDLES + JOHN
Punks, rejoice! Even though IDLES have been touring extensively over the past months, we are very excited to be able to witness the band’s new album tracks performed live. Go listen to “Joy, as an Act of Resistance” now if you still haven’t!
7. Mom Jeans. + Just Friends
Another lovely little tour to look forward to is Mom Jean.‘s. Following the release of ‘Puppy Love’ this summer, Mom Jeans. are determined to share their music with the world and rock your own little music universe. With silly songs and song titles, Mom Jeans. are like your new best buds and you should go spend some times watching them play tunes.
8. Anti Flag + Cancer Bats + Silverstein & Worriers
Although most of these bands have already toured in our continent recently, this whole bill sounds like the tour of the year. With various stops, including one Anti Fest event in the Netherlands and appearances at Groezrock indoor in Belgium, Anti Flag and their friends are more than ready to rock our fall this year. Are you?
10.Black Peaks + Tusky
Signed recently with Rise Records, Black Peaks are about to release a new album called “All That Divides”. We recommend you to listen to the first singles taken off it, such as Home, since we believe this band comes up with some of the finest sounds in progressive rock, nowadays. To make things even better, Tusky, from the Netherlands (you might be familiar with some of them!) will join the party. Definitely one not to miss!
