Upon a Burning Body hail from San Antonio, Texas. The metal five-piece brought the heat from the Lone Star State to the Phoenix Concert Theatre Friday night, getting the audience warmed up for the ensuing chaos throughout their set. The band dressed to the nines in their suit and ties. They got the crowd roaring on their feet as the band played songs off their most recent release The World Is My Enemy via Sumerian Records. Available now, http://smarturl.it/itunes-uabb. The record debuted at No. 39 on the Billboard 200, an impressive accomplishment! Read more and check out our gallery of their set below!
Upon a Burning Body clearly had the crowd engaged from start to finish. Consecutive breakdowns and quick drum pedals had the audience simultaneously head banging along with the band members. Their was no doubt UABB were engaged with the crowds, as bodies upon bodies came over the barricade, the security at the venue barely keeping up with the rise in energy.
The rise in energy all cumulated going through the tracks, from their homage to their home state on “Texas Blood Money”. Each song built up for the closing track of the set, a cover of the hit “Turn Down for What”. The cover track appears on Punk Goes Pop 6 and features rapper Ice-T. The crowd reciprocated the forceful performance as kids jumped up and down, more appearing over the barricade as crowd surfers had their go.
Upon a Burning Body recently toured on the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival over the summer, the band will be continuing their opening slots on tour with Asking Alexandria, Blessthefall and a slot at Rock on the Range 2015 in Columbus, Ohio.
