Fresh off the release of their newest album, "Exile In Oblivion", Strung Out rolled into Irving Plaza in New York City once again to show us all how a live show should be played. With Saosin, Love Is Red, and Last Of The Famous in tow, there was some variety to the show as there always seems to be when Strung Out goes on tour, regardless of how good the said openers are. Here's how it went down...

The doors to Irving opened around 8, and at around 9 the first band of the night, Last Of The Famous took the stage. I was enthused to see these guys, as the band is made up of ex-members of Shelter, Youth Of Today, and Saves The Day, however, the music draws nothing from any of those bands. Stale, stale pop-punk with really bad vocals. That is really the only way to describe the mess that was Last Of The Famous...oh well, you can't win 'em all.

Next up was Love Is Red, and this is the type of band you need to get the crowd going. As soon as they took the stage, the floor of Irving was blasted wide open and various body parts were flailing all around. Awesome, heavy, fast, old-school tinged hardcore with some breakdowns that tore the floor up. Strung Out has never failed to bring awesome hardcore bands on the road in the past (i.e. Poison The Well, Eighteen Visions), and Love Is Red was no exception.

So the last appetizer before the main course was Saosin. Let me tell you, I would rather have laid on a bed of hot coals for 30 minutes before Strung Out came on then hearing this band. Really, really generic, bland, annoying screamo with some of the worst vocals I have ever heard. They had some parts in a few songs where they attempted to break it down with some heavy parts, however this was all ruined by the fact that the guy screaming sounded worse than nails on a chalkboard. So eventually after about 30 minutes or so, Saosin took their leave along with the people who had strictly come to see them, and with a legion of cult fans remaining on the floor, the anticipation grew as we all knew what was up next...

At about 11:30, the lights went out, the Strung Out chant began emitting from the crowd, and Jason, Jake, Rob, Chris, and Jordan walked on the stage to hundreds of screaming fans. Now you know that feeling you get when a band opens with a song that you absolutely love yet you have never heard them play live before (this was the case at last summer's Strung Out show at Irving Plaza when they kicked into "Barfly" as the opener)? Well this was exactly the case once again, as Jordan make a quick roll on the rack toms and the band shot into "Speedball." The floor began swirling, fists were in the air, and Strung Out was playing just as good as they always do. "Too Close To See" followed directly after, and the high energy didn't stop until the end of the show. Various tunes were played off "Exile In Oblivion", including "Skeletondanse", "Her Name In Blood", "Analog", "Scarlet", and best of all "The Misanthropic Principle" (more on this one in a bit). The rest of their set was a pretty good balance of material from all their albums, save for the "Crossroads and Illusions" ep, with highlights including "Firecracker", "Deville", and "In Harm's Way." They closed out their set with "Matchbook" as per usual, but of course that wasn't enough to satisfy the rabid crowd. After the Strung Out chants fired up once again, the band returned to the stage and busted out "Bring Out Your Dead", which sounded amazing as usual. "This is our last song" announced Jason before Rob started playing the opening riff to "The Misanthropic Principle." Now upon hearing this song on "Exile In Oblivion", I thought to myself, wow this is really one of the best songs Strung Out has ever written, and hearing it live affirmed that fact 100%. This was the perfect song to close the set with, and hearing it live might have made it my favorite Strung Out song ever. Great job guys with the new album, and once again your live show never fails. I urge you to go see Strung Out live if you have not yet done so, you're guaranteed a great time.

Got a copy of the set list, here it is in order:

Speedball
Too Close To See
Skeletondanse
Razor Sex
Cult Of The Subterranean
Her Name In Blood
Firecracker
Analog
Ultimate Devotion
In Harms Way
Deville
Scarlet
Velvet Alley
Jackie-O
Matchbook

-encore-

Bring Out Your Dead
The Misanthropic Principle (written down on set as No Voice Of Mine)

I suppose if playing power chords (and only power chords) over and over and over makes you good band, then strung out is good. if writing inept lyrics makes you a good band, strung out is a good band.

saosin is fucking awesome.

I was at the show. Last of the Famous was fucking horrible. Their lead singer had these huge arms, like a fucking gorilla., and his body was average. And his vocals and the lyrics were soooo terrible.

Love is Red was definetly awesome. They consider themselves a hardcore and nothing more. I dont get why people get so technical about shit like that. I do sometimes only If i know that that's what that band considers themselves.

Saosin was awesome too. I saw them a year ago back with Anthony and they're still fucking great. Strung Out was pretty good. But they just didnt get to me like the Love is Red and Saosin. That's my say.

Truth. All you little kids worrying about whether something is emo, emo-core, post-hardcore, screamo, metal-core, need to shut the fuck up and start worrying about the lack of good music. This generation disgusts me.

"I didn't like any underoath... Early stuff is crappy metalcore"

ummmm... cires of the past is not a "metalcore" album in the slightest bit. Just listen to "walking away" or "cries of the past". I admit i listen to some metalcore, but this is in not much of any way realted to the genre. "Changing of Times" is metalcore-ish. But not the early stuff.

Pop punk? Are you stillborn or something? They're way too fast to classify as pop punk. They're skatepunk with a metal edge. Fucking moron. You might as well say that Gray Matter were pop punk. Fucker.

good review. i flew to NYC all the way from san francisco for this show, and it did not disappoint. Must say the NY crowd goes off and thanks again to the guy who picked the crowd surfer up off my head and saved me from a broken neck. can't wait for the west coast leg!

I've seen some dumb things posted here, but were I to award I trophy, here's who's shelf it would surely end up on. The fine person who wrote this:

"and hardcore isn't about double bass & breakdowns, although hardcore is definitely all about breakdowns. metalcore is all about double bass & breakdowns, but not so much about breakdowns as hardcore. many popular bands are equal parts emocore & metalcore, so they're emometalcore. *fart*"

Any time you'd like to impale yourself on a meat cleaver, I'd approve. You jackass.

Almost equally as dumb is calling Saosin emocore. To the kid who suggested you listen to Fugazi and Dag Nasty, thank you, though that advice will go to no good use as that kid is probably currently listening to Matchbook Romance.

I hate people.

if you want to break it down into primary divisions & subdivisions, it's like this:

emo
emocore
screamo
punk
hardcore
metal
metalcore

indie

saosin clearly fits into emocore, because the only thing that sounds like screamo is screamo, and they don't sound like screamo. strung out is punk, but off-center punk...I say a punk/emocore hybrid instead of metal, but it you want to get jiggyfly on it, say they're punk with an emometalcore tinge. complicated enough for you?

Ahh, yes, Emocore, do you know what emocore really is? It's just another name for regular emo, Emo is Emotive Hardcore, emocore for short, or emo for even shorter.

I saw the Denver show and I also saw SO in San Bernadino at the supercade fest and i have to say that the Denver show was the most amazing show I have ever seen. They had way more energy and played way more songs. Jason climbed on the balcony rail and dropped to the crowd and surfed back to the stage during Bring Out Your Dead along with the guys from the other bands in there underwear and weird costumes and about eight people from the crowd on stage dancing or whatever you wanna call it. Love is Red didn't play but LOTF and Saosin although very talented but were very boring to me. The lead singers were a little annoying. The pinching of the balls high pitched scream of Saosin just about drove me insane but the band was awesome.

Hey buddy, I didn't write this review to glorify Saosin. I wrote this review to review a Strung Out live show. I wrote this review with Strung Out as the focus. I went to the show to see them, not Saosin, yet I sat through Saosin and after 6 songs I think that gives me enough to write a short paragraph blurb stating my opinion on their music and live show. I'm sorry I couldn't write a stellar review for this band you are hopelessly defending, if you are looking for positive (or most likely more negative) reviews on Saosin, then go read a review for a Saosin show or album.

(to the guy below) yes i got the new record just in time to listen to it nonstop (like the day before). i wanted to be ready for the new songs when they play them.

bizzlebrizzle (November 21, 2004)

Damn west coast gets Only Crime and A Wilhelm Scream...that's fucking bullshit.

I'd have loved to see Contender, Solitaire, or Radio Suicide played live.

And dude below, you already knew the new songs that well to be wanting them to be played?

Anonymous (November 21, 2004)

im sry to say but for 16 bucks the show wasnt worth it to see just strung out. for one reason only a couple of songs they played were good( her name in blood, firecracker,matchbook, in harms way, and too close to see). I really wanted to hear lost motel, blueprint of the fall, contender, and solitare. also if maybe the other bands on the bill were alot better then maybe strung out's set would have been more enjoyable. but i do have to say they played a super tight set so i quess it was worth it.

they played "deville"? how fucking sweet.

I strongly disagree with this/ Ive seen strung out 3 times now, and all 3 times I have left before they finished, because, well they suck live, in my opinion. Why did I go you ask, well, each time they had a great band opening for them. Most recently Saosin, who are an excellent band.

I love that song "Scarlet"(song 12 on the new album)........"On this eeeeeeeeeve........of destruction maybe.............that is such a catchy as fuck melodic chorus.

The last three songs on Exile in Oblivion are awesome.....my only complaint is the very very end of "The Misanthropic principle" when it just slows down and ends.......one more chorus would make it the best Strung Out song ever.

Anonymous (November 20, 2004)

Strung Out arguably puts on one of the best live shows. So much raw energy and emotion. Scarlet is a sick ass song too. The solo in the middle and the bass line at the end are ridiculous.

I didn't like any underoath...

Early stuff is crappy metalcore

New stuff is pop-screamo.

Anchors (November 20, 2004)

It sucks too, because the first two Underoath records were clutch.

I can't exuse 'They're Only Chasing Safety', though, it's awful.

Score is for all the bands you listed.

bizzlebrizzle (November 20, 2004)

saosin screamo? pop screamo? ahahaha.. ok.. their certaintly aren't that.. labels are for food cans buddy.

Boo hoo hoo, you hate adjectives.

Saosin is pop-screamo, just like Underoath, and From Autum To Ashes, and From First To Last, and Matchbook Romance

So there!

Tinner (November 20, 2004)

Is it just me or do lots of other people hate encores too? I can't even remember a show in the last 7 or 8 years that I've gone to that didn't have one. It seems to be just part of the setlist for most bands now, with fan favorites often being saved specifically for it. I think that encores should only happen if the show is not just a good performance but a way above average one, say better than 90% of the regular shows you. Bands should play their best songs during their "set" and if they are lucky enough to get an encore then that's when they should pull out the cover or rarity or new song or whatever. And that concludes my little rant.

alright...i didnt attend this show...but i have seen love is red many times....and they are one of the best live hardcore bands ive seen.

and to one of the people below me...yes...you are the only person who thinks they are a shai hulud rip off....they sound absoultely nothing like shai hulud.

thats my piece.

p.s. saosin is amazing.

bizzlebrizzle (November 20, 2004)

Score is for the Saosin set in Boston. I have to completely disagree with a couple of things. I saw this show in Boston, and Love Is Red completely sucked.
Saosin, on the other hand, absolutely tore the place up. The new singer, Cove, is incredibly good live and the music was right on target.
We didn't bother staying for Strung Out, seeing as they suck.
i was also at this show, taking pics/selling merch. it was amazing. sadly, i had to sit through another strung out set.

I bet you wear girl pants and pay way too much for your haircuts...fucking metro piece of shit.
your stupidity is blatant in your automatic stereotyping and denounciations. congratulations on being an ignorant little bitch.

I just noticed that Eighteen Visions and Poison The Well were cited in your parantheses after the description "awesome bands."
This isn't properly registering with me
HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

my saying Saosin has the potential to "hit it big" shouldn't matter a shit. i just meant they could get signed on pretty much any label they want.. indie or major.
the fact is... they have a HUGE and loyal following even though they released one ONE five-song ep. i bet their following could rival that of Strung Out.
so freaking true. i was amazed at how at both shows i went to, half of the crowd left after saosin.
wait, how many releases has strung out had? how many songs? compare that to saosin.

I love how some people get so mad about kids liking "screamo" and tell them to listen to a pretentious and artsy band that'll automatically give them scene points *cough* Saetia, Antioch Arrow *cough*. Those bands are ok, but please, don't name drop bands to make yourself look better to kids who don't and probably wouldn't give a fuck anyways.
again, soooo true. saetia that, orchid that. i hope these bands, albeit mostly defunct, appreciate being elitist scenester namedropping fun.

You're fucking retarded(in the fullest sense of the word)...just quit talking

The difference between Strung Out and Saosin's followings are that Strung Out's following isn't a bunch of screaming girls and guys who look like girls, and Strung Out isn't a band that was made just to follow some bullshit trend that came up out of nowhere...so go listen to you piece of shit pop-screamo garbage, I sure as hell hope Saosin's singer's balls drop sooner or later.

Saosin was good, but you should probably have heard and liked them if youre gonna see them. I could see why someone would think they're bad.

SO was incredible. Their set was really long and they played everything pretty seamlessly

What's worse is that for some reason they thought that other hardcore bands were playing that night(although I still think they're metalcore, but oh well)

Last of the Famous was pretty bad.

Love Is Red was alright for tough guy hardcore, as I was sincerely bobbing my head sometimes, but it was mostly feigned interest to avoid getting my ass kicked. It worked nicely.

I went for Strung Out AND Saosin. What a thought!

Cove is ambitious. He needs a little stage presence work but I think he'll do alright.

Strung Out tore it up as usual. Not as good as the American Paradox tour (2002) but better than last year.

They tore it up in Cleveland and played my three favorite Strung Out songs: Jackie-O, Matchbook (obviously...), and closed their encore with fucking Lost Motel!!! Granted, the new songs sound a lot better live, but I think their new album, while still pretty good, is their worst (not counting The Skinny Years...). Cheers!
