Written By;Brandon Delano

With five bands on the bill things got off to an early start at The National for The End Is Near Tour featuring, Falling in Reverse, Motionless in White, and Issues, also out on the tour are Dead Girls Academy, and Dayton, Ohio’s DANGEЯKIDS. The tour is set to wrap up on February 12th in San Diego, CA at the House of Blues. Tickets and VIP packages for the tour can be purchased HERE:

Michael Vampire fronted Dead Girls Academy got things kicked off early for the night Dead Girls Academy have yet to release an album yet so fans weren’t quite sure what to expect from their set. They proved to be a great choice for getting the fans geared up for the rest of the evening playing a six song set which can be found below. DANGEЯKIDS were up next playing a very short four song set which closed out with their current single “Kill Everything”, which has been getting radio play on Sirius XM’s Octane. The band also released their debut album Blacklist_ on Friday the 27th. Third on the nights bill were Atlanta’s ISSUES. Described as a metal-punk hybrid with a mix of hip-hop and R&B blended in, ISSUES had the room up and off their feet during their set. ISSUES are currently out touring in support of their 2016 release, Headspace. The setlist was compromised mostly of tracks from the new album and wrapped up with their 2013 release, “Hooligans”. 

When Motionless in White took the stage at 830, The National was near capacity and the 1200+ fans greeted the band with chants of “Motionless”.  The band are set to release their latest album, Graveyard Shift in May and released their latest single, “Eternally Yours” on January 27th. The set began with the first single from the upcoming album, “570” followed by 2012’s “A-M-E-R-I-C-A” which Michael Vampire joined the guys on stage for. A highlight of the set was the bands cover of system of a Down’s “Chop Suey” and closed out with “Reincarnate”. Fans will be able to catch MIW this spring when they play this year’s World’s Loudest Month Festivals.  To keep up with all that is Motionless in White head over to their website HERE:

Headlining the night was Falling in Reverse, who are set to release their upcoming fourth studio album Coming Home in April. Falling in Reverse’s setlist consisted of 13 songs followed by a 4 song encore, which spanned the bands discography including “Loser”, “The Departure”. and “Coming Home” off of their soon to be release Coming Home. The set started off with “Sink or Swim” from their debut album and wrapped up with the title track of their 2015 release Just Like You
