Live Review: The Story So Far And Man Overboard @ Max Watts 5/09/15

It’s been just over a year since The Story So Far last graced Australian shores when they made an appearance on Soundwave and now they’re back with a new album under their belts for the Supply Australia Tour. Joining them are New Jersey boys Man Overboard, and together they’ve brought the ultimate pop-punk jams and angry finger-pointing.

Formerly known as The HiFi, Brisbane Max Watt’s was filled packed with angry pop-punk punters dressed in band shirts of every band you can think of but the one’s actually playing and the attitude to tear the roof down with their moshing. Despite not having been to Australia since the Aussie leg of Warped Tour in 2013, fans had not forgotten about defenders of pop-punk Man Overboard. They captured the devoted crowds attention away from the bar and draw out the first crowd surfers of the night. While it was a fairly simple set (lots of punk jumps of course) the crowd went wild for Where I Left You, from their third album 'Heart Attack’.

But it was The Story So Far who brought the thunder for the evening as they opened up with new hit Nerve from their recent self-titled album. Their 14 song set was the perfect combination of all three of their albums, with classic hits Roam and All Wrong having the crowd overpowering the vocals of front man Parker Cannon. While Cannon did not boot kick any fans off stage like he has done in the past, there were still plenty of people who tried to make their way on to the stage before sadly being stopped by the venue security. While no ambulances were called like the previous night’s show in Brisbane at The Lab Nightclub, the crowd was still brutal with everyone leaving the mosh dripping in sweat but overall in high spirits.

Though there have been rumours circulating the internet that The Story So Far are in with a chance at being added to the 2016 Soundwave line up, we’re going to need at least another year to let our bodies recover before we do that all over again.
