Welcome to another Throwback Thursday installment!
I actually made these videos only a few months before starting an Autumn Peal blog. This trio is Lower Automation. They’re a mathcore band from Wheaton, IL. I’ve known Derek (lead singer/guitarist) for years with his old band Counterfeit I back when I was more active in the music scene. It was great seeing this new music with this current project.
I made some more videos! It’s good whenever I have a chance to go to concerts since I haven’t been to one in such a long time.
It’s been a year since I saw Phantoms & Pestilence, and it was awesome to see them again. I don’t know that many bands in the are who sound like them. They debuted a song called Beyond Infinity which was really cool.
Okay, so this isn’t a super new video (see the title of this video), but it is one of my more recent ones. This is courtesy of Phantoms & Pestilence who are a post-metal band based in Elgin, Illinois. They played this Summer’s Battle of the Bands. There aren’t many bands that sound like them in Northern Illinois, so I thought they had a great sound.
Check them out here.
Here’s some more mewithoutYou footage for you from that surprise birthday present I got. This is their song February 1878 which one of their “sequel songs” as I sometimes call them. Much like “Four Word Letter Pt. II”, “Nice and Blue Pt. II”, or “Bullet to Binary Pt. II”, they followed it up with something that uses some of the melodies from their most famous song “January 1979” (which they played right before this song on this setlist). IT’s from their Ten Stories album.
Here’s my first Throwback Thursday post. I’m taking you back to 2011 in Bushnell, Illinois. There used to be this one festival called Cornerstone down in Central Illinois that had a ton of great bands, movies, and activities there. However, it stopped in 2012. RIP Cornerstone. Here’s one of the first videos I took when I was there in 2011 when I saw The Skies Revolt. This was the last song on this set when they played the Solace stage.

Here’s my first official post, everyone. You see, my birthday was last week, and my sister treated me to a surprise present of seeing mewithoutYou and Into It. Over It. at Durty Nellie’s. I haven’t seen either band in years (mwY in 7; IIOI in 6 respectively). This was one of mewithoutYou’s first songs they played at the show with this classic from 2004’s Catch For Us The Foxes album.
