Thousand Foot Krutch Concert Review with We As Human and Righteous Vendetta
~Majestic Theater, Madison, Wisconsin October 12, 2014
The Christian hard rock triad of newcomers Righteous Vendetta, powerhouse touring band We As Human and staple Thousand Foot Krutch rocked the Majestic Theater in Madison, Wisconsin.
The venue was an intimate one. I love the intimate venues for the feelings they evoke in a show. It truly feels like you are special guests in a small theater with a show just for you and your friends. The week prior we had just seen Thousand Foot Krutch at Louder Than Life festival.
The night started with Righteous Vendetta and they are fairly new to the scene. Their latest release, an EP named Defiance, is a truly great play. They are a blend between a metalcore band and a rock band. Their set consisted of songs from Defiance including the title track and Hard To Breathe and some older songs such as This Pain. Many in the crowd had not seen this band before and they were well received. You can learn more about the band by watching our interview with the vocalist, Ryan Hayes here:
Next to take the stage was fan favorite, We As Human. We As Human have made the circuit with Carnival of Madness in 2013 and played several Christian and rock festivals in addition to supporting several tours. That being said, many of the fans were there to see We As Human and knew all their songs. They played all of their hits from their eponymous album that was released in 2013 including Sever, Strike Back, Take The Bullets Away, and others. Their song, Sever, is about Justin Cordle’s nephew Tyler who died of cancer and that night was his birthday. So we had a little celebration for him. You can learn more about that song and more by watching our interview with Justin Cordle and Justin Forshaw here: Interview with We As Human
Thousand Foot Krutch engulfed the small stage with their large drum kit, lights and the personality of front man, Trevor McNevan. The mood was like family getting together to celebrate the evening. Their set started with Give It To Me. The set was energy filled and everyone sang along to their latest hit Born This Way. The night ended with an encore of three songs including Fire It Up.
Truly a great night where this amazing lineup of Christian rockers gave their fans a great experience. Each band met with fans after the show and gave many a night to remember for months to come.
