The crowd seemed to be enamored by I Prevail and after their set, their merch table was swarmed with young kids trying to get pictures and signatures from this band that's sure to be a household name sooner than later.
Neck Deep played through their quick forty-minute set focusing on their newest release, Life's Not Out To Get You (2015). Singer Ben Barlow gave up the microphone during "A Part of Me" and let the crowd take over. Barlow seemed truly overwhelmed when it seemed like every single voice in the venue was singing his song. It seemed to catch his stagehand off guard when he dropped from the stage to the ground in order to get closer to his fans. He seemed truly humbled by the respect that the crowd in Maplewood gave his band even though they stuck out like a sore thumb on such a heavy line-up.
Pierce the Veil was formed by brothers Mike (drums) and Vic Fuentes (vocals/ guitar) back in 2006. Joined by Tony Perry (guitar) and Jaime Preciado (bass), these guys have released four full length albums including Misadventures, their newest release. It seems like these guys have not really change over the past nine years but that's a good thing because it keeps their fans coming back from me.
The young crowd was anxious for the band to take the stage and with each test of the smoke machines that blasted smoke high into the air, the crowd would scream with excitement. There was a giant black curtain that made it impossible to see what was going on as far as stage set up was concerned but as soon as that curtain dropped, the secrecy made sense.
Towards the back of the stage were giant props that resembled a broken down space ship with the drum riser rising from between the two halves. At first glance, this prop looked strictly 2-D but within seconds, the members of the band emerged from the lit up windows that were on the wreckage. They came out one by one dressed in white spacesuits to the screeching crowd. As they entered the stage, they stripped down to their normal black t-shirts and jeans and started the show.
PTV kept the energy up throughout their set. They played a couple songs from each of their releases except for their debut release A Flair for the Dramatic (2007). This album is by far their least known and the crowd didn't seem to mind them skipping out on it. There were points during the show when V. Fuentes would lower the microphone from his mouth but the sound wouldn't change that much. The crowd was screaming back every single word to him and it was quite a sound to hear.
After twelve songs and a two song encore, it seemed like the crowd still had not had enough of PTV and they pleaded for more.
