Interview with Dan Jacobs of Atreyu

For those of you living under a rock, Atreyu is one of the biggest bands to perform on Vans Warped Tour this year. Atreyu just released a new album Long Live on their newly signed deal with Spinefarm Records after coming off of a four year hiatus that began back in 2011. We got the opportunity to sit down with guitarist Dan Jacobs to talk about the band, the tour, the new label, and the possibility of new music.

 

So how does it feel to have a really well received album and a really cool tour coming straight off of a hiatus?

Phoenix Event Complex

Warped Tour 2016 was in Phoenix at an event complex, basically one giant soccer field. The humidity and heat were high peaking at 109 degrees that day. And while the heat may have been too much to handle, it didn’t get to people and the concert was actually quite amiable. Unbeknownst to me, Warped Tour is aimed at underage music fans which allowed them to bring in one parent for free. This added an interesting atmosphere to the concert since I am used to festivals and concert where alcohol and profanities fly freely.

Fitz and the Tantrums- Get Right Back Summer Tour

Acts: 
Fitz and the Tantrums
Acts: 
Zella Day
Concert Date: 
Wed, 07/27/2016
Location: 
Marquee Theatre

I have been to many shows in the past few weeks (4) but not one of the shows exceeded my expectations as much as Fitz and the Tantrums did in the packed Marquee Theatre on July 27th. Playing an hour and a half long set, full of high energy songs, it was clear that Michael Fitzpatrick and Noelle Scaggs love being onstage, and appreciate every single minute of it.  There was never the feeling that they were performing just to perform and that the songs had lost their magic, it was pure energy and gratitude throughout the show.

The Frights kicked off their summer tour at The Rebel Lounge in Phoenix on July 19th,  accompanied by a fellow 
Southern California band HUNNY, as well as Rhode Island-based, self-described “STONERPUNK” outfit (no pun intended),
Gymshorts. Since I am a longtime fan, I was already confident that The Frights would be great long before I even stepped

Coasts and Knox Hamilton at Crescent Ballroom

Acts: 
Coasts

Concert Date: 
Mon, 05/16/2016
Location: 
Crescent Ballroom, Phoenix, AZ

I had the pleasure of seeing Knox Hamilton and Coasts perform at Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix on Monday, May 16th. I had heard about Coasts through KAMP Radio, so I was very excited to see them live. But first, Knox Hamilton was up to perform songs from their EP, “How’s Your Mind” and some new tunes that have yet to be released. The band name comes from the lead singer’s thrift shop adventure.
