On the first Tuesday of September, Fame on Fire brought their Chaos Tour to Nashville at The End. This was the fourth stop on their first ever headlining tour, bringing along Sakoya (pronounced "sequoia," like the tree) and Kingdom Collapse. It might have been a sleepy Tuesday during the school/work week, but the crowd brought the energy to an almost sold-out show.
Sakoya is a hard rock band hailing from Indiana and brings a 2000's feel with a modern spin. This was the first time I'd ever heard this band, and I was impressed not only with their stage presence, but also their music. Definitely keep this band on your radar because this will not be the last time you hear about them!

Next up was Kingdom Collapse, a hard rock band out of Texas that is no stranger to the scene. The band recently released their newest single, "Never Be Like You," just a few days prior, and was featured on the Sirius XM Octane Test Drive. Other hits, such as "Unbreakable" and "Save Me from Myself," have been heard on Octane, and the crowd sang along to them all. While they've toured with big names such as Three Days Grace and From Ashes to New, I predict we'll get a headlining tour from this group soon!

The tour de force of the evening, Fame on Fire, did not disappoint. They've toured with names like Our Last Night and Ice Nine Kills, as well as making an appearance at INKCarceration. Fame on Fire may have started as a cover band, but their Welcome to the Chaos album and their first ever headlining tour proves they are so much more than a cover band. Opening up the show with "Welcome to the Chaos" got the crowd excited and singing along. Joining the setlist were fan favorites like "Plastic Heart," "Ketamine," and "Head Space." Out of the 15 songs played, the crowd favorite was undoubtedly their cover of Linkin Park's "Numb." Every single person in the building was singing along at the top of their lungs.
