Last Tuesday, The Echo Lounge in Dallas, Texas hosted the Pitch Black Forever Part 2 tour, featuring a lineup of Hawthorne Heights, Armor For Sleep, and Spitalfield. As soon as I walked into the venue, I could feel the excitement and energy in the air. Fans of all ages and backgrounds had come together to experience an unforgettable night of music.

Spitalfield took the stage first, and they wasted no time getting the crowd fired up. Their blend of pop punk and emo had everyone singing and jumping along. Lead singer Mark Rose’s soaring vocals were the perfect match for their upbeat and energetic instrumentals. They played a mix of new songs and old favorites, including "Stolen From Some Great Writer" and "Texa$ With a Dollar Sign". Their set ended all too soon, leaving the audience wanting more.

Next up was Armor For Sleep, and they brought a different vibe to the stage. Their sound was more introspective and melancholic, but it resonated with the crowd just as strongly. Lead singer Ben Jorgensen’s haunting vocals were backed by a dynamic instrumental performance that created a sense of emotional depth and complexity. Their set included tracks like "The Truth About Heaven" and "Car Underwater", which had the audience swaying and singing along with their lighters in the air.

Finally, it was time for the headliner, Hawthorne Heights. As soon as they took the stage, the crowd erupted into cheers and applause. They kicked off their set with "Pens and Needles" from their OG If Only You Were Lonely album, and the energy in the room reached a fever pitch. Their performance was a masterclass in how to put on a great rock show. Lead singer JT Woodruff’s powerful vocals were complemented by the tight musicianship of the rest of the band, and their stage presence was magnetic.

One of the highlights of their set was their performance of "Ohio Is For Lovers", which had the crowd singing along at the top of their lungs. They also played some tracks from their new album, like "Constant Dread" and "Spray Paint It Black", which showed that they are still at the top of their game. Their set was a perfect mix of old and new, and they left the audience wanting more.

Overall, the Pitch Black Forever Part 2 Tour was an incredible night of music that showcased the best of the emo and pop punk genres. Each band brought their own unique sound and style to the stage, and the result was a dynamic and unforgettable experience. The Echo Lounge was the perfect venue for this show, with its intimate atmosphere and excellent sound quality. If you get the chance to catch any of these bands on tour, I highly recommend it.
