On January 13, 2022, Wage War hit the stage for their first show of the new year, supporting Falling In Reverse on their first US tour since 2020. I don’t think you could have asked for a better show, honestly. The show took place at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, Georgia and was completely sold out.
First of the line up was TikTok star and musician, Jeris Johnson. He’s mostly known for his remixes of classic rock and metal hits such as “Can You Feel My Heart” by Bring Me The Horizon or “Last Resort” by Papa Roach. Jeris is more than just remixes, though. He proved that on his very first show on tour. Jeris came out swinging with energy through the roof with nothing but himself and his drummer. You need to keep an eye out for this guy!
Next on the line up we had the almighty Hawthorne Heights who has been crushing the rock scene since 2001. Hawthorne Heights truly brought a realness to the tour that no one can match. All the band members walked out, set up their own gear and just started playing (which is rare for a tour this size). You could tell that this band truly loves what they do. They are just having fun and the crowd loved every second of it. Of course, their last song was “Ohio Is For Lovers” and the whole venue shook with excitement. Seeing an emo anthem being performed live is truly a dream come true. Of course to make things even better, Wage War hit the stage right after.
Blowing the roof off with their heavy, yet melodic, songs and high energy. Every band member is going just as hard as the crowd. This is their element. Not to be bias, but they are probably one of the best sounding live bands you’ll ever see. I have seen them three times now and they get better and better. Their choruses stay smooth and the breakdowns hit hard. Truly an amazing band and if you haven’t seen them yet. Hurry up and get your tickets.
Falling In Reverse
To end the night we have Falling in Reverse. Which, of course, is fronted by Ronnie Radke. The crowd went absolutely wild for Falling in Reverse. The production of this bands set is always beautiful and it stayed true to this tour. The lights, the sound, the stage design. Everything was just so fun to look at. On top of Ronnie sounding like he’s auto tuned because of what an incredible vocalist he is.
This is a tour you do not want to miss! It continues through February 4, where it ends in Los Angeles, CA.
