Indie rock from Jackson, Mississippi, mixes with Mobile metalcore in this triple lineup.
With Mississippi known for its wealth of roots music, Empty Atlas’ indie rock is a fresh ingredient. This four-member group will bring tracks from its album,“Hestia,” to LoDa. It’s an album characterized by grand, thoughtful indie rock arrangements and clean vocal delivery, filled with emotion.
The show’s local support will provide a bit of contrast, with two bands from the past and present Azalea City metalcore scene.
Son of a Gun has spent years as one of Mobile’s most popular metalcore bands, mixing hellfire vocals, crunchy guitars and epic breakdowns that cast their crowds into a frenzied downward spiral.
Falling for Insanity represents the new school of local metalcore. This group just finished a five-date Southeastern run with fellow Mobile band A Sunday Fire. “Tree Fiddy” is Falling for Insanity’s first single; it blends the chaotic fury of metalcore with clean post-hardcore breaks in the tradition of such groups as Every Time I Die.
