We live and breathe hardcore, but everyone has their guilty pleasures. Share if this is you. And we know it is.
Blessthefall always puts on a fantastic live show, exploding like a sucker punch to the throat and then transporting the venue to a slow-moving, slow-dancing, lighters-in-the-air pop concert. Until vocalist Beau Bokan asked for a brief break, Webster Hall was filled with blinding, raging awe. Older Blessthefall music has a way of tapping into the listener’s raw emotion, and the crowd was definitely thankful that half the set was dedicated to some of the best metalcore to date.
We caught up with vocalist Spencer Maybe of Detroit, MI band A War Within after their set on the New York City date of the Drop The Gloves Tour, featuring Sirens & Sailors, The Plot In You, Miss May I, and Blessthefall. Bathed in the red light of the lounge we probably shouldn’t have had access to, we chatted about Backstreet Boys, what it’s like to be an unsigned band on a major tour, and how he and Levi Benton of Miss May I (who appears mid-interview) have a very, very special relationship.
