Los Angeles alt rock outfit Bad Suns had a big year in 2014, their debut album Language & Perspective landed in the top 25 of the Billboard 200 upon it’s release. The success of their album lead Bad Suns to support slots on tours with The 1975 and New Politics. They followed that up in early 2015 with a headline tour of their own, and now are back on the road yet again, supporting The Neighbourhood on The Flood Tour.
The tour made it’s way to Boston’s House of Blues on Monday night, where a large contingent of fans awaited. Bad Suns took the stage at 8:15 drawing a warm reception from both fans of their own and fans who had come out solely for the Neighbourhood.
The group would proceed to play through several tracks from Language & Perspective including “We Move Like the Ocean” a song that got the Bad Suns fans in the crowd sing along loud enough to stand out. Frontman Christo Bowman dedicated the next song, “20 Years” to the Bad Suns fans who have been with them since the beginning, as it was the only song in the set not from the group’s debut LP, instead from their firs EP Transpose.
Bowman’s stage presence is that of a star in the making, he commands the crowd and stage, never staying still. When he’s not moving around the stage and interacting with fans, Bowman is adding rhythm guitar to his vocals with the energy level many vocalist/guitarists only strive for.
Playing in minimal lighting and dark clothing reminiscent of post-punk groups like The Cure or Gang of Four. If you’re planning to catch The Flood Tour on any of the remaining dates, make sure you show up in time to catch Bad Suns as they’re on their way up.
