The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: Use Your Shows To Build Relationships

Our touring experiences have definitely changed our outlook on playing shows. Instead of just focusing on the performance, we have learned to treat the entire night as a networking event.

Bands generally only stop in Salt Lake City, if they stop in Utah at all, so this was the first time I had the money for a ticket and the means to get to the venue. I was going to…

SHOW REVIEW: Architects, Stray From The Path, Make Them Suffer

In a world with deeply heated political events and a host of other issues, music has become an outlet for many. Casual listeners and diehard fans alike find their purpose at concerts.

The group, already well-informed and against injustice, experienced a major shift that could turn a lesser band upside down. Architects – and the metal community as a whole – felt a…
