A Day To Remember brought their highly-anticipated ‘Degenerates’ arena tour to Trenton, New Jersey’s CURE Insurance Arena with special guests I Prevail, Beartooth and Can’t Swim.
After blistering performances from Can’t Swim and Beartooth, Michigan-based metalcore band, I Prevail kicked things into high-gear immediately with their heavy single “Bow Down” from their sophomore GRAMMY-nominated ‘Best Rock’ album, Trauma, which was released earlier this year in March. The bands unfortunately short set included 9-songs that heavily consisted of songs from their latest album and adding in a few songs from their debut album, Lifelines, including “Scars” and “Come And Get It.” Bringing an intense performance of their songs that all fans in attendance seemed to know and if they didn’t (which most did) couldn’t resist moshing around throughout their set.
Ocala, Florida natives, A Day To Remember exploding onto the stage to “The Downfall Of Us All” as fireworks lit up the packed crowd and the white curtain dropped unveiling the energy-filled band. Bringing a spectacular production along with them that included pyro, confetti, streamers, moody lighting and visuals that perfectly fit each song that filled the background of the stage throughout their polished set.
Adding two new songs into their impressive 19-song setlist including their latest single “Degenerates” off of their forthcoming new album, You’re Welcome, which was originally set to be released on November 15 via Fueled By Ramen but the band has delayed the release till 2020. Also, including their Marshmello collaborative track “Rescue Me.” Their setlist was the perfect blend of songs for any fans in attendance even including an older hit “Sticks & Bricks” in, which we wish they would’ve added some more of their deep cuts and older songs into their set like “You Should’ve Killed Me When You Had The Chance,” “Your Way With Words Is Through Silence,” “1958,” “A Shot In The Dark” and “Monument.” However, that didn’t stop the band from giving fans an extraordinary setlist that expanded across their entire discography and even including an impeccable cover of LIT’s “My Own Worst Enemy” which had fans going wild, which you can watch HERE.
A Day To Remember never fail to give a stunning performance with each and every tour, only getting better and better each time that we catch their live show. This Degenerates Tour was a force to reckoned with as the lineup is just a heavy-hitting list of artist who are at the tops of the metalcore charts right now bringing an arena full of rock fans to celebrate a genre that is definitely not dead as The Degenerates tour showcased.
