The Below Tour Part 2
This year is quickly becoming a fantastic year for concerts. Last Tuesday night Beartooth brought “The Below Tour Part 2” to the House of Blues in Anaheim, and I was lucky enough to be there taking a few photos. Beartooth’s latest album Below is fantastic, and when I saw they were hitting the road with Silverstein, The Devil Wears Prada, and Erra, I knew I needed to photograph the show.
I’ve photographed Beartooth a few times, and was lucky enough to have full access a few years ago at the Self Help Festival in San Bernardino. They are a band that knows how to put on a show, and Tuesday was no exception. The 17 song set started off with Below, the title track of the new album, and also included Disease, Skin, Fed Up, and Hated. Once they were done with the two song encore I had the feeling the crowd would have stayed for more.
Caleb Shomo is a great frontman, and along with Oshie Bichar on bass, Connor Denis on drums, Zach Huston handling lead guitar, and Will Deely on rhythm guitar, the band sounds as good as ever.
- Fed Up
- Body Bag
- The Lines
- Beaten in Lips
- Phantom Pain
- You Never Know
- Bad Listener
- In Between
- The Past Is Dead
- The Last Riff
Right before Beartooth was the band Silverstein. I’d heard a lot of good things about their live show, and they did not disappoint!
The band consists of lead vocalist Shane Told, along with rhythm guitarist Josh Bradford, Paul Koehler on drums & percussion, bassist Billy Hamilton, and lead guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau. This band is so damn fun to watch – and a challenge to photograph. They work the entire set, and musically they ran through a dozen songs, and left the crowd exhausted.
- Bad Habits
- My Heroine
- The Afterglow
- Smashed Into Pieces
- It’s Over
- Smile in Your Sleep
The Devil Wears Prada is one of my favorite bands live. If you’ve never seen them, just trust me, you need to. Mike Hranica is one of the best frontmen working today. In fact, I was actually surprised they played before Silverstein, although I hadn’t seen Silverstein live before Tuesday, and now I understand what everyone has been talking about.
TDWP is one of the tightest bands touring today. Kyle Sipress on lead guitar is a joy to watch and listen to, and along with Jeremy DePoyster on rhythm guitar, Jonathan Gering on keys, Mason Nagyon Bass, and Giuseppe Capolupo on drums this band is a bucket list performance.

- Danger: Wildman
- Dez Moines
- Dogs Can Grow Beards All Over
Kicking the night off was Alabama metalcore band Erra, who I had – embarrassingly – never heard of. Dayem they are good. Their set was dark however, which, for a photographer, made the set a bit of a challenge. And when I say dark… I mean dark.
When they wrapped up their six song set I found myself wanting more. I will definitely catch this band live again.
The band consists of lead vocalist J.T Cavey, drummer Alex Ballew, Jesse Cash on guitars and clean vocals, and bassist Conor Hesse.
- Nigh to Silence
- Scorpion Hymn
