Perth Live and Local @ YMCA HQ - Dead Famous / Patient Sixty-Seven / Longshore / Icreatedmonster / Lions & Lambs - 19/08/2016
Following the release of their single Father on the 12th of August 2016, Dead Famous were booked to headline a local show at the YMCA HQ in Leederville.
First up was a new band called 'Lions & Lambs' with their first ever live show. They played a few heavy rock songs, including one that they wrote last week, and the crowed enjoyed it. The vocals were great and I was impressed by the sound this young band had to offer. They had lots of energy and cracked a few jokes between songs, they seemed comfortable on stage, killed it. Perfect way to start the night off.
Next up was 'Icreatedamonster' who just released their debut EP. They played a few heavy metal songs, keeping the crowed entertained as people started to warm up and the venue started to fill. The screamer had a powerful sound and the band overall has a unique tone worth checking out!
Following them was 'Longshore' from Bunbury WA. Around this time was when more people started getting into the music with a few people moshing at the front. Front man Ross Day was continuously communicating with the crowd and giving the whole place a great atmosphere. They played songs like Masterpieces and Brittan Road which got the crowd going.
Next up was 'Patient Sixty-Seven' who did not disappoint. Slowly more and more of the crowd started moshing with a couple circle pits going. Front man Tom Kiely constantly jumped off the stage into the crowd, moshing and interacting with them. They played songs like The Ken Burns Effect off their debut EP Imbalance and their new single Callous.
Finally it was time for 'Dead Famous' to perform. The crowd was waiting in anticipation to hear their new single Father played live for the first time ever. Opening with their single Visions and Infatuation Fascination they had the crowd pumping. When they dropped their latest single Father the crowd went wild with circle pits and walls of death. They have a tight heavy metal sound with clean low screams.
Throughout their whole set front man Gareth Feven got the crowd to sing parts and sometimes jumped in the crowd to interact with them. Their energy onstage also got the crowd going. They played two covers which the crowd really went wild for. Deliver Me by Parkway Drive and Mr Highways Thinking About The End by A Day to Remember. At the end of the set the crowd called for an encore and they played their first ever single, 316AM.
Dead Famous will be supporting Lost Honours at The Boston in Perth on the 14th of October.
