On December 27th, A Loss for Words took the stage for the final time at Worcester, MA's The Palladium. Read my review and check out my photos from their send-off, which featured support from Pvris, Therefore I Am, Junction 18, Vanna, Transit, Handguns, Lions Lions and Major League.
A Loss for Words had played this particular venue countless times throughout their career, but this night was different. Ever the earnest frontman, Arsenault explained to the audience - which he repeatedly referred to as his friends - that it had been his dream when he was 15 to sell out The Palladium. Now, at age 31, he had done just that. The 2,100+ people in attendance roared with applause.

Read my review and check out my photos from the Mansfield, MA stop of Slipknot's Summer's Last Stand Tour with Lamb of God, Bullet for My Valentine and Motionless In White.
Slipknot is no stranger to overcoming adversity, including the death of founding bassist Paul Gray in 2010 and the exit of longtime drummer Joey Jordison in 2013. While these events have undoubtedly impacted the band internally, their live show has gone unphased; it remains a spectacle of chaos, both sonically and visually.
