The Plot In You @ Lions Art Factory, Adelaide 22/09/2022

It’s not often I go out on a school night these days but when The Plot In You, Erra and Deadlights come to town, Thursday night somehow becomes the beginning of the weekend! It had been far too long since I had last seen any of these bands play live, so with much excitement, I headed into the city.

With the crowd starting to build, the sound of Brisbane’s Deadlights echoed through Lion Art’s Factory. Having not had the opportunity to see this band live since the release of their latest album The Uncanny Valley the opening notes of Schedule 1 are literally, excuse the pun, music to my ears. This band holds a special place in my heart, stumbling across their amazing album Mesma back in 2017 was a major factor in starting my love for metalcore. The set list included a selection of songs from the new album like The King of Nowhere, Contact and Echo Chamber along with favourites Invisible Hands and Bathed In Venom. Vocalist Dylan Davidson addressed the crowd pointing out that we all had one job – to feed off each other and create some energy. Punters took this advice on board and ensured that energy was high for the remainder of the evening.

There are no two ways about it, ERRA are a class act and after a five year wait Adelaide was more than ready for them. The hammering intro of drums kicked us into Gungrave and set the scene for what was a wild ride. ERRA have a magical way of pulling you in and holding you there until they are ready to release you. While JT Cavey’s powerful vocal range took us on a frenetic journey, Jesse Cash’s melodic vocals gathered us in for brief moments of respite before we were catapulted back into the vortex. Gifting us with a varied selection of their catalogue, with songs like Scorpion Hymn, Eye of God, Drift, Snowblood, Breach and my personal favourite Skyline – Erra could do no wrong.

Releasing Swan Song since visiting our shores last you can feel the crowd’s anticipation to witness live some of the songs off this superb album. A lone Landon Towers appears on stage, the crowd erupts as Landon emotionally gives us the first lines of Face Me while being joined on stage by the rest of the band. Prowling the stage while delivering Fall Again, Enemy and Paradigm, Landon encourages the sea of fans to “show me some shit”. Adelaide obliged as the band broke into past hits including NOT JUST BREATHING, THE ONE YOU LOVED, RIGGED, Time Changes Everything and Take Me Away with the crowd helping vocally. Bodies were lifted above the crowd of swirling moshers who couldn’t seem to get enough. For a heavy band Plot deliver every song with such raw emotion that sometimes it’s hard to decide whether you need to mosh or cry. And then just like that the night was over. Fans slowly made their way from the venue emotionally and physically spent, but with the biggest smiles. Damn it's good to have not only live music back but to see international acts touring again.

THE PLOT IN YOU Add DEADLIGHTS To The Swan Song Australian Tour With Special Guests ERRA

Today, Ohio quartet THE PLOT IN YOU have announced the addition of Brisbane post-hardcore act DEADLIGHTS to their hotly anticipated debut national Australian headline tour in September with very special guests, ERRA.

DEADLIGHTS have never been ones to shy away from the more complex issues within their lyrical content and continue to delve deeper into every corner of their psyche and poke the dark monsters they find.

Debuting with Greyscale Records as one of their first signings with their album Mesma, the band have gone on to become a household name within the Australian alternative scene supporting acts such as Parkway Drive, Thy Art Is Murder, Every Time I Die and most recently supported Polaris nationally on their Vagabond regional tour. In May 2021, DEADLIGHTS released their sophomore album, The Uncanny Valley, which had glowing reviews by critics and fans across the country.

After racking up over 100 million streams and receiving praise from BillboardRock SoundAlternative Press, and more, THE PLOT IN YOU have crafted music that addresses the end of various things and situations in life.
 
THE PLOT IN YOU released their fifth full-length album, Swan Song in 2021. Sonically and spiritually, Swan Song stares down at years of negativity, soured friendships, disappointment, and mistakes and flush it all away in the wake of hammering distortion, towering melodies, cinematic production, and unapologetically cathartic lyrics.
 
The record received glowing reviews globally. With Hysteria Magazine saying, “In a triumphant fashion, Swan Song may well be the group’s most audacious; genre bending and diverse album to date.” And Wall Of Sound said, “If Swan Song was indeed The Plot In You’s final album, then it would see the four-piece bowing out on a high, at both their popular and creative peak.”
  
THE PLOT IN YOU’s last visit to our shows saw them supporting Polaris in 2018 for the sold out national ‘The Mortal Coil Tour’ and had critics raving about their flawless live show.
 
Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, ERRA’s namesake comes from Akkadian mythology and represents mayhem. Their technical sound and writing is taken by influences from well-respected groups like Misery Signals, Born of Osiris and Saosin. They thrive on being creative and showcasing their talent through their intense live performances and offering their refreshing sound. Their 2020 self-titled album saw them receiving high praise from fans and music critics alike.
