In anticipation of their long awaited album release, The Art of Burning Bridges took the stage like a squad of storm troopers this past Saturday night and practically blew the doors off the place! Melodic vocals soared over tasty hard rock riffs as Patrick Rominelli’s haunting voice captivated the room. If you haven’t heard of The Art of Burning Bridges, you are depriving yourself. This talented three-piece delivers their set with the flawless execution of a truly solid group who intuits one another’s every stroke on stage. Their soulfully inspired music has a soul, a life, all its own.
The band is just coming back from a brief hiatus, although you’d never know it to hear them. The show they headlined at Turtle Creek’s Sub Alpine Club was just the beginning of their return. Teaming up with Silence Follows and amplifiers, The Art of Burning Bridges put together a show that enthralled the crowd from start to finish. Not really surprising, as Art of Burning has shared the stage with plenty of national acts. But, their ability to turn a local club show into a live entertainment event was still not lost on those in attendance.
Starting off was Silence Follows. Bluesy hard rock with the grit of modern influence. Their more recent sound has been taking a heavier turn lately. It fits well with the passion and great music they’ve always had while taking it to another level. They seem to be experimenting with a few things and it’s paying off in spades!
Up next, amplifiers. who brought in not only a different sound than expected but a light show fit for a touring act. These guys were new to me but made a huge impression with their way of taking you softly to the edge of something melodic, only to hit you with an unexpected intensity that knocks you off your feet.
Keep an eye on all of these bands but be sure to watch for The Art of Burning Bridges new release, which is rumored to be coming out by summer 2019! in the meantime, here’s some photos from the show and a little taste of what you can expect:
