I have been talking about nothing but Thousand Below for the past couple of weeks and guess what, I am not stopping yet. Here we go,
The first time I saw Thousand Below was when they were a part of the “Nightlife in Revolt” tour with Youth in Revolt and Light Up The Sky. I went into the show knowing nothing about them and came out of the show a massive fan. So you all can only imagine how absolutely STOKED I was when they went on tour with Blessthefall last year. A band that I loved opening for one of my favorite bands of all time? I was hooked, obviously. Then watching them play to that crowd, definitely put Thousand Below on the same list as Blessthefall. Then they open for Of Mice & Men (They’re currently still on that tour, make sure you make it out to any date near you!) and hit Lawrence again, which made me incredibly happy.
Music-wise, they don’t have a bad song. Not one. All the tracks on their first album The Love You Let Too Close are incredibly emotional and can totally be the tunes you scream at the top of your lungs on your way to work or class or on the way home from a long day. Their two new singles “Chemical” and “Disassociate” are absolute bangers and incredible to witness live. When it comes to their live show these guys absolutely NEVER disappoint. The chemistry and energy is through the roof and it radiates into the crowd. Also, they have really sick tour merch? I have no idea who designed it but I wish I could have bought all of it.
If you’re not already listening to Thousand Below, you should probably start doing that pretty soon, because I firmly believe that they’re one of the best up and coming bands in the scene. You guys are totally missing out if you’re sleeping on them, but the good news is, you can change that! Their second album Gone In Your Wake drops October 11 and you can make sure to check it out on your favorite streaming platforms!
Basically, Thousand Below is great and you should make sure to check them out.
Until next time…
