CONCERT REVIEW: Silverstein / A Day To Remember @ Sound Academy – 09.24.09

Silverstein

Silverstein embarked on a Canadian tour with two Canadian bands I Am Committing A Sin and Ten Second Epic along with Floridian labelmates A Day To Remember.

Being the only American band on the tour did not stop A Day To Remember from taking over Toronto. Their third album Homesick has been getting a lot of great reviews and the band landed on the cover of Alternative Press in the September issue. Opening their set was the first track of their new record “The Downfall Of Us All” with the catchy intro that got the crowd chanting “da da da”. It was an understatement to say the set was energetic. Fists were in the air, mosh pits were formed as the post-hardcore/punk band launched into ground shattering breakdowns such as “I’m Made Of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?”, “The Danger In Starting A Fire” and “Fast Forward to 2012”. The band also performed “Have Faith In Me” and announced they will be making a video of it shortly. “The Plot to Bomb the Panhandle” ended the sweaty set with confetti.

It definitely seemed like A Day To Remember has upstaged Silverstein, however, these home-province heroes did not disappoint. It was the band’s first time the band properly played in Toronto in front of a massive crowd after their fourth album “A Shipwreck In The Sand” is released. The band played a bunch of old favourites such as “My Heroine”, “Smile In Your Sleep” and “November” from their debut album “When Broken Is Easily Fixed” which they haven’t played live in awhile. The very talented front man Shane Told was fairly active on stage when he delivered his powerful screams and emotional vocals.  Hometown buddies I Am Committing A Sin performed “Born Dead” with the band. The band also covered OneRepublic’s hit “Apologize” (from Punk Goes Pop 2) with their twist to the song. After an encore of three songs, the show ended in “Bleeds No More” with Told singing among the excited fans grabbing him.
