blessthefall kicked off their spring tour Thursday night (May 9) with a free, hometown show at Tempe Marketplace. The tour covers 27 stops all across the country with New Jersey natives Palisades. Playing to a packed crowd, Phoenix’ own alt-rock band Archetypes Collide and heavy rock band Outsiders headed off the evening. Being the only band on the bill not native to Arizona, Palisades quickly broke any barriers and engaged with the audience physically, mentally, and emotionally. After losing their long-time drummer after the culmination of their tour ending in October, blessthefall hit the stage for the first time in about six months. Fans sang along enthusiastically and with fists and horns to the sky, cheered them on making for a memorable start to their forthcoming tour. Check out our full gallery of the show below.
