The fine folks over at Live Nation have just announced a massive Emo-themed festival that will take place in October in Las Vegas. It also features more bands than you can shake a stick at but why would you do that to some talented musicians anyway. Here is their brief press copy along with the poster. I’ve taken the time to type up the whole list for you in case the poster is a little hard to see on the website.
The Press Release:
Festival to feature epic lineup of emo and rock artists from the past two decades, including My Chemical Romance, Paramore, A Day To Remember, The Used, Taking Back Sunday, Avril Lavigne, Dashboard Confessional, Jimmy Eat World, Alkaline Trio, The All American Rejects and dozens more. Special presale starts Friday, Jan. 21 at 10 am PT for fans who sign up for early access to passes online at whenwewereyoungfestival.com (linked below) Continue reading Live Nation Announces “When We Were Young” Festival In October→
Though this past Monday was a US holiday, it was not as much a day to day to relax if you were helping to keep the masses aware of that which they should know. Over the course of a matter of hours we found tours being announced by Ozzy Osbourne, Alter Bridge, The Black Crowes, Tool, UFO and In This Moment….whew. Now with Tuesday shaking the chill off itself (since NYC is brrrr cold today), we get the latest scoop from Dance Gavin Dance who have revealed a Spring tour for 2020.
The Press Release:
Genre defining post hardcore five-piece, Dance Gavin Dance have announced a huge North American headline run with special guests Animals As Leaders, Veil Of Maya and Royal Coda with one more band to be announced.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This should be an interesting tour and oddly enough I’ve never managed to see DGD in concert before. I’ve caught Animals As Leaders and Veil Of Maya a number of times so if I make it out to this one, I will be getting a long overdue education in their brand of sonics. That’s all I have to say about this one so I will close up and ask what you readers think about the whole thing. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
