While Loudwire covers the “big dogs” of this tour The 69 Eyes let me give you all my take. From April through May 2019 this tour will consist of 26 dates across 20 states for a cross country US Tour of the ages. While we all know what a huge fan of Finnish rock and metal music I am (don’t even get me started on what Europe has to offer the music scene), let me take a moment to shout out the “little guys”.
Supporting The 69 Eyes on this tour is none other than Las Vegas, NV locals The Nocturnal Affair. Over the last couple of years they’ve dialed back on the number of shows they’ve played to focus on writing and perfecting their craft under the management expertise of DevilDriver & Coal Chamber frontman Dez Fafara via Oracle Management . Only playing a few select shows to include the Homegrown Show put on by our local rock station Komp 92.3 FM .
While they went on a live gig break Vocalist Brendan Shane could still be found out and about doing acoustic sets. Other members such as Guitarist Andy Ingram and bassist Michael James focused on other projects. Andy Ingram, also being the guitarist for another Vegas local band Bravo Delta, is by far one of the best guitarists in Vegas. The dude can shred.
Nocturnal just recently debuted their latest single “Into The Darkness” on February 1st as a prelude to the Tour Announcement.
This wont be the first time they’ve taken the big stage with well known bands. Among the heavy hitters they have shared the stage with HELLYEAH, PopEvil, Black Stone Cherry , 3 Doors Down and more. Bringing their own sound to the stage to set them apart and make their mark in the music industry and with fans. Their music can make you feel like you are in a melancholic dream wondering around the ether and teetering on the edge of the void as it calls out.
