On the back of releasing their third studio album As You Please, Citizen embarked on the As You Please Tour, in support of the record that has seen mostly positive reviews and reception from fans and critics alike.
Providing direct support for Citizen on the fall run is indie rock quartet Sorority Noise, who are also touring in support of their own newly released record You’re Not As ____ As You Think, which itself has garnered positive reviews across the board.
When I learned that I would be covering the As You Please Tour, I set out to listen to as much Sorority Noise as possible, and found out that I truly enjoy the band.
The Hartford, Conn., band started their direct support set with, perhaps, my favorite track off of their most recent release, “A Portrait Of.” A song exclusively about the struggles of living with Bipolar Disorder, came off extraordinary in performance and emotion.
The rest of the performance followed the lead of the opening track, with a wildly emotional and powerful, yet entertaining and impressive, eleven songs that spanned the bands three studio albums.
Sorority Noise finished their set with my second favorite track from YNAAYT, “No Halo,” which finished the set in the same manner as they opened it: a song with heavy lyrics and meaning.
Sorority Noise sets out to reflect themselves in their art, and it resembles very well into their live performance.
Make sure to catch Sorority Noise, as well as Citizen and Great Grandpa on the As You Please Tour this fall.
