Our Last Night and Hands Like Houses brought the “Face To Face Tour” through Philadelphia recently with The Color Morale and Out Came The Wolves. You can check out the photos, after the break.

Believe it or not, not all tour packages are created equal. Some tour packages, like the Face To Face Tour, are stacked with knockout bands, and it’s almost not fair to other shows that have to try and compete. The Face To Face Tour lineup, including Our Last Night, Hands Like Houses, The Color Morale, and Out Came The Wolves, stormed through Union Transfer in Philadelphia on November 20th and left a mass of satisfied fans in their wake.

Bursting out of the gates, Out Came The Wolves started the show strong. Frontman, Cameron Burns, dominates the stage with an energy that extends from the front of the venue to the back. There wasn’t a moment where the band stood still for more than a second, and that constant movement encouraged the crowd to abandon their inhibitions about moving to the opening band. While arguably the band with the most aggressive sound on the tour package, Out Came The Wolves were met with no resistance in getting things heated up.

The Color Morale were next to grace the stage, and they kept the mood intense through the duration of their set. Lights stayed low, fog stayed thick, and the crowd grew louder. While it was many fans’ first time seeing or even hearing Out Came The Wolves, it was apparent that a majority of the crowd were veterans of The Color Morale’s music. A chorus of voices chimed in with every lyric, and familiar riffs were met with thunderous cheers.

Australian rockers, Hands Like Houses, are no strangers to American stages, which they made sure to graciously point out during their performance. Upon taking the stage, anyone could tell that the energy levels in the room had been cranked up several notches. The band outdid themselves, their live performance surpassing their well-received studio recordings, and an equally well-done production through lights and atmospheric effects pushed the envelope. Midway through the set, frontman, Trenton Woodley, confessed a sore throat and oncoming sickness to the crowd, but continued to effortlessly push out those high notes that fans adored all the way to the end.

As soon as the house lights dimmed, the crowd roared for the imminent appearance of Our Last Night to the stage. Without missing a beat, the guys triumphantly walked out and jumped right into it. The next hour consisted of a variety of Our Last Night’s work, including a recent cover of “Cold Water” by Major Lazer and Justin Bieber, and fan favorites such as “Same Old War”. Both belted high notes and screams alike were delivered flawlessly, and the band recreated every riff, beat, and groove with precision. Anyone unfamiliar with Our Last Night prior to their performance left a fan, and every fan there left more than satisfied.
