Festival Recap: Las Rageous Festival In Las Vegas, NV

On October 18-19, numerous rock/metal fans invaded Sin City for the third annual Las Rageous Festival at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. It was a fun weekend full of loud music and good times.

The show kicked off on Friday with killer sets from artists like Words From Aztecs, Dead Girls Academy, and Sigil, before things really got going with awesome sets from He Is Legend and Poppy. Those two really helped bring up the energy to prepare everyone for Fever 333, who were one of the strongest acts of the night, Sleeping With Sirens, Dance Gavin Dance, and The Used. All those incredible bands paved way for the headliners of the evening, Bring Me The Horizon. The band were firing on all cylinders and had top notch stage production, complete with big screens, backup dancers, etc,. that helped make it a night to remember.

As Saturday arrived, there was no shortage of massive amounts of talent. This day kicked off with performances from Navarre, Mynas, Taking Dawn, and The Hu, the latter of which really got the audience fired up. Then it was time to bring on the heavy with Whitechapel, who had everyone raging before two of the best acts of the night took the stage, Beartooth and Atreyu. Their sets were followed by the relentless I Prevail and the phenomenal Chevelle, who got everyone ready for the one and only Rob Zombie. Like Bring Me The Horizon, Zombie’s band came out with all guns blazing and insane stage production with big screens and monsters. It was the perfect way to cap off the weekend, while also preparing everyone for Halloween.

Bring Me The Horizon Premiere “In The Dark” Music Video

Bring Me The Horizon have premiered a new video for their song “In The Dark.“ The clip was directed by singer Oli Sykes with assistance from Brian Cox and it stars Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker. The track appears on the band’s latest album “Amo.“

Sykes told NME the following about working with Whitaker:

“We met Forest a couple of years back. His daughter is a fan of the band and he came to a show with her. Any time that we’re in the same town, he usually comes down to a show. He was at All Points East and he’s just a really good dude.

This is something that we’ve been trying to do for ages. He was actually going to be the main guy in ‘Mantra‘, but it just didn’t work out in the end because of timing and scheduling, so it ended up being me.”

He also commented on the video’s concept:

“I guess it’s meant to be a representation of the grieving process. It’s a visual metaphor for what the song is talking about. When it comes to the grieving process, we all try to ignore that feeling – but it’s important to grieve.

Even if something’s happened for the best, you need to take that moment to feel something. Some people lose a whole world to grief sometimes, while others just don’t grieve. Sometimes we’re just too scared to face our emotions.”

He also added the following when asked if the song has taken on a new meaning:

“I don’t want to focus too much on what the song is about, because it feels so insignificant now. It’s not something that I’ve really been thinking about.

Basically, Forest is the protagonist and a lot of people are counting on him to be able to recall these memories and process them. The spectrum of his emotions is impacting on all of these different experiments. I wanted it to have a message for what’s going on in the world right now.

A lot of people are refusing to accept what’s happening, because they’ll have to take action and make some physical changes to their lives.”

“It’s a mirror to how we don’t want to face up to things. A lot of people are refusing to accept what’s happening, because they know that in accepting it, they’ll have to take action and make some physical changes to their lives.

It’s about something bigger than my emotions and my breakup, this is about what’s happening on the planet right now.”
