Pianos Become the Teeth / Loma Prieta @ Saint Vitus – 5/13/15
Pianos Become the Teeth visited NYC last year on their short release week tour promoting their excellent third album Keep You, but it wasn’t until this past April that they began their first extensive tour in support of the record. That tour brought them back through NYC last night (5/13) for a sold-out show at Saint Vitus. As you know by now if you follow the band, Keep You is their first album without screaming. But it’s no less intense than their earlier work, as last night’s wild and passionate crowd reinforced throughout the entire set. The show was mostly the new album, but Pianos did of course work in some older ones too.
Opening the show was atmospheric rock band Gates, who also opened their last NYC show, and the crushing boundary-pushing screamo band Loma Prieta. They haven’t released a new album since 2012’s great I.V. on Deathwish, but they’ve been trying out new material on this tour so hopefully that means one is on the way.
