You’ll have to pardon my getting this one up a little later than I would have liked but with Metallica releasing a video for every single song on their new album and my needing to be on point with that, I was a tad preoccupied. Now with that out of the way I can share the broadcast that hit my mailbox a few short days ago and discusses some early 2017 dates by singer Andy Black who will be bringing his “The Shadow Side” album to life. Check it out.
The Press Release:
Supporting his critically acclaimed full-length debut, The Shadow Side [LAVA/Republic Records], ANDY BLACK will hit the road in 2017 on The Homecoming Tour: Curtain Call. Support comes from William Control and Palaye Royale on all dates. Tickets go on-sale this Friday November 18, 2016, 10am local time available on BLACK’s website.
Known for his engaging, enthralling, and explosive live shows, BLACK once again pulls out all of the stops for The Homecoming Tour: Curtain Call, igniting The Shadow Side on stage nightly. A sequel to The Homecoming Tour, Curtain Call commences on February 8 at Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA, hits major markets across North America, and finishes up with a hometown Southern California gig at The Glass House in Pomona, CA on March 3. The full itinerary is included below.
Make sure to experience BLACK’s world and The Shadow Side this winter.
For The Shadow Side, BLACK teamed up with producer John Feldmann [Panic! at the Disco, 5SOS, Blink 182]. Moreover, they tapped the talents of collaborators contributors, co-writers and producers. Ashton “Ash” Irwin from 5 Seconds of Summer plays drums on a handful of tracks including “Homecoming King,” “Ribcage,” “Stay Alive,” “We Don’t Have To Dance,” “Broken Pieces,” “Beautiful Pain,” and performs backing vocals on “Ribcage.” Mikey Way plays bass on “We Don’t Have to Dance” and “Louder Than Your Love,” while Gerard Way offers background vocals. Joe & Benji Madden of Good Charlotte co-wrote “Broken Pieces,” and Mark Skiba (Alkaline Trio/Blink 182) is featured on “Stay Alive.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I’m going to keep this one short since I need to get away from the screen for a little bit and since the tickets have just gone on sale. I’ll be frank and say that if he is coming to a venue near you then you should go to see this show if you are a fan of the music that is on the album. I caught him doing this some months ago and it was a really great show and he had a fantastic connection with his fans. It’s very different stuff from the Black Veil Brides but there is some great melody to the material. I’ve seen William Control in the past and its not really my thing but I enjoyed watching his fans go crazy and the support act Palaye Royale is something very new to me, so I’ve got some digging around to do. I’d go once more but the “curtain call” is not happening at any venue near me. What do you think of this tour and the openers? Chime in down below in the comments section.
