The New England artist makes an incredible comeback, selling out a “Re-birth” headliner supported by Caspian.
Caspian is rock act from Beverly, Massachusetts, who had the opportunity to be a part of one of the most anticipated comeback tours of the year. They took this opportunity and showed a sold-out crowd in Royal Oak, Michigan what they are capable of with their atmospheric rock sound.
The instrumental act most doesn’t suffer from the lack of vocals. On the contrary, their sound is so big, that their music speaks for itself. Caspian is a band that must be experienced live to absorb the full effect of their music.
When Underoath announced their hiatus three years ago, it was as if a hole was left unfilled in the music scene. Although lead vocalist Spencer Chamberlain and drummer Aaron Gillispie were involved in their newer projects, Sleepwave and The Almost, their fans were longing for a return they were not sure would ever happen. Thanks to fan dedication, the band announced their return with the Rebirth Tour 2016.
The tour paid homage to one of their earlier releases, They’re Only Chasing Safety, and the following Define the Great Line, which the band performed in their entirety. The tour also marked Aaron’s return to the band, who is the original drummer but had left the band for their latest release. The crowd comprised many old fans but also first-time attendees.
They sang along to many of the Christian band hits such as “A Boy Brushed Red Living in Black and White,” “Reinventing Your Exit,” “Writing on the Walls,” “You’re Ever So Inviting,” “A Moment Suspended in Time.” They also performed “Down, Set, Go” for the first time. Needless to say, fans are excited to see what the reunion may bring in the band’s future.
