Editor’s note: More than a couple of us who work here at New England Sounds started covering music at a time when metalcore was far and away the most popular genre in alternative music. Flashback to some of the Warped Tour lineups this decade and you’ll see that the overwhelming majority of bands on the bill were from the metalcore genre. But times change and so do trends, a significant portion of yesteryear’s metalcore bands graduated to other genres and have found major success (read: Bring Me the Horizon, Enter Shikari) some have undergone major lineup changes, and some have ceased to exist altogether. Still, however, there are a select few bands keeping it alive and still thriving at it. On Friday night a tour with three of those bands was in Hartford, CT for a show that took the crowd back to 2011 when tight black t-shirts with large and colorful font were all the rage. August Burns Red brought The Dangerous Tour to New England with Fit For A King and Miss May I in tow and put on one of that high octane, sweaty, loud shows that left fans with hoarse voices that were once so common. Kelsey Lockhart was on hand for the show, capturing all the visuals of the night’s action. Check out her photos below.
