LIVE REVIEW: Stick To Your Guns @ Asylum, Birmingham.
Stick To Your Guns are one of the biggest names in modern hardcore. Through their emotionally influenced sound, the band have been on a upward trajectory for years now. Supported on this tour by Employed To Serve and COUNTERPARTS. It's safe to say this line up was stacked.
Employed To Serve was the first band on. The band draw in the crowd for a pit to finally start right after. When the riffs come this frequently and heavy there’s no chance of there being 0 movement. A set featuring 2 new songs as well as all the songs previous listeners/people who have attended Employed To Serve gigs will know. With a release obviously coming in 2019. I hope there's a tour to support it off the performance on Monday!
Counterparts was next, and to be honest this felt like more of a co-headline than a STYG headline with a main support act. (not that thats a problem obviously) A band that are currently at the top of the hardcore scene after a very successful album release, the atmosphere in the room was to be expected and exceeded expectations. The setlist was dominated by songs from You’re Not You Anymore, with No Servant of Mine, Bouquet and You're Not You anymore all translating perfectly live as well as a few older songs such as Choke and The Disconnect.
Last but not least, Stick To Your Guns. Who wasted no time going on to the stage. Going straight into classic ''What Choice Did You Give Us?'' then going into We Still Believe. The room got straight to business with an atmosphere that was at a very high intensity all night long. Sing along anthems such as Amber, Nobody and Against Them All also made the setlist. A brilliant set overall featuring new and old tracks from Jesse and the rest of the Hardcore kings in Stick To Your Guns.
