The Color Morale’s “The Desolate Divine Tour” came through The Voltage Lounge in Philadelphia, PA with Dayseeker and Picturesque. Unfortunately, The Plot In You’s van broke down and couldn’t make it to the show. You can check out all of our photos, after the break.

Record-breaking heat and weekend traffic weren’t enough to stop 300+ people from cramming inside Voltage Lounge for the Philadelphia stop of The Color Morale’s Desolate Divine Tour. Even with some unfortunate van issues preventing The Plot In You from making it to the show, the rest of the bands on the lineup- Moral Support, Picturesque, Dayseeker, and The Color Morale- had fans jumping, moshing, and singing along from start to finish.

As the only local support on a show like this, there can be a lot of pressure to impress, but Moral Support ripped the stage like professionals. Despite it only being the band’s fourth show, as vocalist, Tyler Lewandowski, confessed during the set, he commanded the crowd like a veteran. The band’s eclectic music had the crowd bobbing heads, waving hands, and flailing limbs in the pit, all in a 20 minute set. Needless to say, Moral Support was the catalyst needed to kick this show into gear. Expect to see much more of these guys around soon.

With things already rolling, Picturesque greeted anxious fans by jumping right into their set- no introductions needed. Vocalist, Kyle Hollis, delivers some of the highest notes in modern post-hardcore with precision, and his ability to match his live performance to studio recordings is refreshing. The band packed a lot of punch into their quick set, putting fans to work with crowdsurfers taking to the skies. Picturesque performed songs off their brand new album, ‘Back To Beautiful’, as well as fan-favorites including ‘Speak Softly’.

Things got a little heavy- in the best way- once Dayseeker took the stage. The California five-piece added another dimension to the lineup, throwing some more aggressive breakdowns in the mix. The crowd found new life as fans yelled, moshed, and literally crawled on top of each other to reach the front of the stage. Dayseeker’s setlist included their recent single, ‘Vultures’, featuring Garret Russel of Silent Planet.

The house music cut out, and in that moment, the room grew quiet as fans anxiously waited for The Color Morale to kick things off. The crowd was a powder keg and all it took was the band’s triumphant walk onto the stage to ignite. The longest set of the night was paired with the most energetic crowd of the night, with rarely a second to breathe even between sets. Vocalist, Garret Rapp, continuously expressed his gratitude for both the fans and bands taking part in the night; anyone there would vouch for the authenticity in his voice. If the band’s full set weren’t enough, fans’ post-set cheers were answered with a two-song encore. In a surprising turn of events, The Color Morale’s Garret Rapp and Devin King hopped down into the center of the crowd and performed their final song in an acoustic sing-along style with fans gathered round. As the final notes finished ringing out, the band made their way straight up to the merch table with fans following closely behind. It’s safe to say that any fans of The Color Morale went home satisfied after this show.
