Live At The Roundhouse was captured during Alien release week at the culmination of the most turbulent period in Northlane’s history. As outlined in their recently released documentary, Negative Energy, the last time Northlane played at that same venue in 2018 it was to a half empty room in a desperate bid to get their head above water financially. Live At The Roundhouse also contains a confronting and gut wrenching performance by frontman Marcus Bridge, as he battles through songs about his harrowing childhood live for the first time. Those who tuned into Negative Energy got a sneak peak of the band playing “Sleepless” for the first time – a song they will never play live again.
“One of the most incredible, moving moments we’ve ever had on stage for me was when we played ‘Sleepless’ for the first time at our show at the Roundhouse,” starts guitarist Josh Smith. “Knowing what events had transpired not too long before that, and what the song was about, I could tell Marcus was struggling when I got up there. By the time the song had finished he was in tears and he just soldiered on though the rest of the encore like nothing was wrong at all. I could tell on the inside he was just bleeding out. It was one of the bravest moments I’ve ever witnessed.”
Live At The Roundhouse is only available to stream for two nights only. Don’t miss the chance to witness one of the most important shows in Northlane’s history. Tickets are on sale now at northlaneband.com
