As Cities Burn will be bringing their ‘Scream Through the Walls Tour’ to The Amsterdam Bar & Hall in Saint Paul on Sunday, July 7th.
Since their inception in 2002, As Cities Burn have garnered tremendous respect for their progressive take on the post-hardcore genre. Upon the release of their 2005 full-length debut, Son, I Loved You At Your Darkest, fans and critics alike fell in love with the balanced dynamic of TJ Bonnette’s visceral screams and the clean vocals of his brother, Cody, who also serves as the primary songwriter in the band. In 2006, TJ’s new marriage saw him leave As Cities Burn for a new life in Mississippi. The remaining members forged ahead, undergoing several lineup and stylistic changes over the next three years and releasing two more acclaimed full lengths – Come Now Sleep (2007) and Hell or High Water (2009) – before disbanding in 2009.
This, however, is not where their story ends.
In the time since, As Cities Burn would occasionally play one-off shows, but no plans for a proper reunion were discussed until a few years ago when TJ moved to Nashville where his brother and the rest of the band were living. Casual jam sessions commenced and, before long, a concrete plan fo a new record began to take shape. Two years later, As Cities Burn are ready to unveil Scream Through The Walls – their first album in ten years and the first with the Bonnette brothers collaborating since the band’s seminal debut.
All Get Out (a personal favorite of mine) and Many Rooms will kick the night off.
Tickets are still available HERE!
