Four Year Strong Live in Seattle

Four Year Strong Live in Seattle

4YEARSTRONG (127 of 28)Four Year Strong, the beard bearing pop punk outfit, tore through Seattle’s Showbox  on June 10th 2015 to a standing room only crowd. The band wasted no time ripping into their opening song. What the Hell is a Gigawatt?’ which instantly ignited the seemingly thousands of Seattlites on hand for the show. Four Year Strong brought a high energy, in your face brand of pop punk to the stage that amps up the crowd and gets them more excited and energetic than I have ever seen.

The distorted power chords, typical of this brand of music, overtook the venue as the group pounded their way through an 11 song set.  The technical prowess of the band was just as impressive as the level of energy they used and maintained on stage. The entire building was shaking and all you could see from front to back were waves of pumping fists and crowd surfing fans. To say the venue was being rocked is arguably the understatement of the year so far.

The band continued with crushing, crowd pleasing live renditions of ‘What’s in the Box’ and ‘Find My Way Back’ which rounded out the middle of their set. The setlist was peppered with old and new which seemed to be exactly what the crowd came to see. Four Year Strong were incredibly in tune as to what their fans came to see and were on a mission to deliver it to them.  From start to finish the band kept their foot on the accelerator and that energy, that tempo resinated throughout the crowd.

The bottom line is Four Year Strong through down a near perfect set which reached its pinnacle with the finale three songs. ‘Heros’, ‘It Must Suck’ and ‘Waisting Time’ put an exclamation point on the performance and left no doubt in my mind that Four Year Strong is a force to be reckoned with in the Pop Punk arena.
