Concert Review: The Amity Affliction, Senses Fail, Silent Planet, & Belmont In Santa Cruz, CA

On February 8, I attended The Amity Affliction, Senses Fail, Silent Planet, and Belmont concert at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, CA and it was a great show.

The event began with a fun performance from pop punk act Belmont. The band were energetic and had great songs that really helped warm everyone up early on in the evening. A highlight from their set was “Pushing Daisies.”

Silent Planet took the stage next with their unique brand of metalcore. The group take heavy music and mix it with poetic and atmospheric elements, while maintaining a clear and powerful message. It’s definitely an interesting experience to see them live, especially if you don’t know what to expect beforehand. Some highlights from their set included “Native Blood,” “Panic Room,” and “Depths II.”

After Silent Planet, it was time for the first of the two co-headliners, Senses Fail. The post-hardcore act blasted onstage with “Can’t Be Saved” and just kept rocking from there. Buddy Nielsen may have been the most energetic frontman of the night with crazy dance moves, mic tricks, cartwheels, and more. He was definitely entertaining and the crowd couldn’t get enough. Some highlights from their set included “Lady In A Blue Dress,” “Buried A Lie,” “Elevator To The Gallows,” and their covers medley, which featured System Of A Down’s “Chop Suey.” Drowning Pool’s “Bodies,” Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff,” and Rage Against The Machine’s “Bulls On Parade.”

Senses Fail finished up and then it was time for the second of the two co-headliners, Australian metalcore act The Amity Affliction. The band stormed the stage with “Drag The Lake” off their latest album “Misery” as the audience screamed with excitement. From there, the group played a balanced set of new and old tracks with each song being executed flawlessly. Ahren Stringer and Joel Birch’s vocals were especially on point. If you have yet to see The Amity Affliction live, it would be worth your while to catch them on their next tour. Highlights from their set included “This Could Be Heartbreak,” “D.I.E.,” “Don’t Lean On Me,” and their encore “All Fucked Up.”

Venues Revealed For 25th Anniversary Vans Warped Tour Dates

As previously reported, the Vans Warped Tour will be returning this year for select 25th anniversary dates. Here’s all the locations:

06/30 Atlantic City, NJ – Atlantic City Beach
07/20 Mountain View, CA – Shoreline Amphitheatre
07/21 Mountain View, CA – Shoreline Amphitheatre

Kevin Lyman commented:

“With the [Vans Warped Tour] 25th Anniversary events, we want to bring the atmosphere of a classic Warped Tour show, but on a scale that our fans simply could not get with a national tour.

The bands, the special attractions, everything – we want to bring back elements that have made the Warped Tour, Warped Tour, over the past 25 years.”

The Atlantic City, NJ and the Mountain View, CA events “will be [the] same Warped Tour vibe [with] multiple stages, extreme sports, sponsor activations, non profits, etc.”

The Cleveland date will be more “scaled back,” but it will feature a “Forever Warped: 25 Years Of Vans Warped Tour” exhibit with various things from the tour’s history, including instruments from Fall Out Boy, No Doubt, Rancid, etc. The exhibit will open with a concert featuring performances from bands that have played the festival throughout the years, a mini vert ramp, and more.

Pre-sale tickets will be available on February 25 and the lineup will be revealed on March 1, the same day as the general sale.
