Basement Band Tour

Live reviews Basement Being a fan of English melodic hardcore outfit Basement has not been an easy ride, after exploding on the scene in 2009 with a truly different sound. A fanbase was established immediately and numeorus publications praised the band's early intense and intimate live performance. However they announced a hiatus shortly after the release of their first two albums 'I Wish I Could Stay Here' and 'Colourmeinkindness'. Two years later and they cause more emotional anxiety for the fans as they announce a reunion and head back onto the road. Fortunately for the band the dedication of the fans is strong and the masses return to the small venues to cheer, rock and jump along with the five piece. They seem to be a lot more focused and centred than in the early days and the inter-band tenses have all disappeared. When they look out through the hazy smoke and see a whole room full of people jumping along to 'Covet' and 'Bad Apple' it seems clear that the group are now in this for the long run. There is no sign of any new material yet as the group play their shows although the next album is likely to be really exciting so keep it peeled. Read more Report as inappropriate by sean-ward When you think of this word, you do not think that they are a band. You do not think that they are possibly some of the best post-hardcore music of this time. They are Basement, and they are truly amazing. There is nothing about them that is like a basement, they are very much alive and above ground. I think that they make quite possibly some of the best music that I have ever listened to. My ears thank me each and every time I listen to them. They get in a special mood. I love Basement for the way they treat their fans and people in general. They always hold some sort of kindness in their heart, even if you tell them you hate their music. They respect everyone and what their opinion is, and that takes a lot for someone to do. I am very happy to say that when you listen to them live you are transported to another world. They bring you to life in another universe and they make you happy and smiley and overall in a great mood. I cannot explain what their music does to you, just listen and see them live to find out for yourself.

Also the sound for the support (Dinosaur Pile-Up) was extremely well mixed and powerful, unlike Basement's sound. However, Basement did still play with great energy and really sent thr crowd mental and had everyone singing along. Also, look at for Dinosaur Pile Up, they were extremely good and judging by the headbanging in the room, it seems like this was the resounding opinion! So yeah, shame about the sound but they still played well, hopefully the poor sound is only a one off at this gig. Read more Report as inappropriate by luke-wainwright each performance was great. Basement is intense. But it would've been better if the show started an hour earlier and if it were located in Boston. More people would've attended the show, plus there is more transportation. I wasn't satisfied because the location wasn't great. But basement always pull off a great show. Read more Report as inappropriate by ashrina Basement was absolutely amazing. The connection between the band and the crowd was insane. Their songs were great and I'm definitely going to see them again when I get the chance. Report as inappropriate by kim.mckendrick Basement was amazing to see!! So much fun to sing along with the crowd. Probably one of my favorite bands to see live. Hope to see them again really soon!

Heaven’s Basement called upon friend Johnny Fallen from UK based band “The Fallen” to sing temporarily whilst they searched for a new frontman.
