Another band I was excited to see at The Great Escape this year was Amber Arcades. I'd featured the band's track "Constant's Dream" last year and eagerly awaited their debut LP, Fading Lines, which was released just recently. They've also announced a tour of the states supporting Nada Surf, and I see 3 potential dates to see the band again, Nashville, Birmingham, and Atlanta. Nashville at the end of September looks most promising, but the Birmingham gig is closer and not out of the question.
Their set at Komedia was mobbed, rightfully so, they put on an excellent show. While juggling a pint, sidestepping overzealous fans, and battling with some crazy lighting, I managed to snap a few "decent" photos of the band with my Sony A6000 mirrorless camera. Find the band's video for 'Fading Lines' and my photos from their performance below.
