So, it’s only apropos that the band would mount a tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of that recording with a tour (along with plans for releasing another studio album).
That tour — with The Devil Wears Prada, Gideon and Dayseeker on board — made a weekend-ending stop on Sunday at The Intersection in Grand Rapids, regaling fans with what loudersound.com has called a “punk spirit” and altpress.com has described as “balladic melodies, ethereal instrumentals and electronic riffs.”
