In this Dream Tour segment, the metalcore artist, Adrien Gonzales, reveals who he would want on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks below:
I’ve been listening to heavy music since the release of “Meteora” by Linkin Park, which was definitely an eye-opening experience. My taste has evolved over the years, and I believe that my dream tour lineup would be eclectic in terms of heavy music sub-genres.
Northlane: Every new record from this band since Discoveries has had a significant impact on my life and how I want to evolve as a musician. Northlane never stop pushing their sonic boundaries and improving their craft through experimentation, especially with the introduction of electronic music elements in their sound, reminding me of where I come from (I used to listen to a lot of electronic music when I was a kid).
Celldweller: 2003 was a wild year when you think about it…”Meteora” by Linkin Park…the release of “Metroid Prime”, “F-zero GX” and “Zelda Wind Waker” on Gamecube…”The Lord Of The Rings 3”…oh, and I almost forgot…CELLDWELLER’s self titled record ! That I only discovered two years later with the release of Need For Speed Most Wanted. The game included some songs from this album and I instantly fell in love with them. I’m still listening to this record nowadays, and keeping an eye out for Klayton’s new releases.
The Devil Wears Prada: There’s so much to say about Prada… It’s a band I’ve been growing up with since 2009, when I discovered their song “Dez Moines” as a DLC for Guitar Hero 4 (by the way, Guitar Hero is the reason why I play guitar), and every new record is better than the previous one. They have this ability to evoke emotion through their music that I truly resonate with, and they always deliver amazing live performances… so there’s one more reason to add them to that list !
I think we have a pretty solid dream lineup!
