Nothing More & Wage War’s Co-Headlining North American Tour Featuring Veil Of Maya In Bethlehem, PA

1 min read

This past Friday, the Nothing More/Wage War “North American 2024” tour made its anticipated stop at the SOLD-OUT Wind Creek Event Center in Bethlehem, PA, and it was a night to remember. This night was headlined by the ever-evolving Nothing More, with Wage War and Veil of Maya in tow. This lineup promised a night of seismic shifts in the rock and metal landscape, and did they ever deliver.

Kicking off the festivities, Veil of Maya, those Chicago-based wizards of technical metalcore, unleashed a set that was nothing short of a masterclass in precision and power. Diving into their set with tracks “Tokyo Chainsaw” and “Artificial Dose,” they set the bar impossibly high for the evening. Their blend of intricate guitar work and bone-crushing breakdowns was a spectacle to behold, proving once again why they’re revered in the metalcore scene.

Next up, Wage War took the stage by storm. Hailing from Ocala, Florida, these guys have been redefining what it means to be heavy with melody. Their set was a roller coaster of emotion, blending aggressive riffs with anthemic choruses that had the crowd screaming for more. Tracks “Low” and “Manic” showcased their ability to balance brutality with beauty, leaving fans both exhilarated and emotionally spent.

And then, Nothing More. What can we say about these guys that hasn’t already been said? Their performance was a transcendent experience, blending raw emotion with a musical prowess that’s rare in today’s rock scene. From the opening notes of “If It Doesn’t Hurt” to the closing moments of “This Is The Time (Ballast),” they took us on a journey through the human condition, wrapped in a spectacle of sound and fury.

To sum this up as clear and concise as I can, Veil of Maya set the stage, Wage War built the momentum, and Nothing More blew the damn roof off. If this tour is coming to your town and you miss it, you’re doing yourself a disservice. This isn’t just a concert; it’s a musical revolution. And we’re here for it, mosh pits and all.
