As part of the ongoing ‘Kings & Queens’ tour, Butcher Babies, Nonpoint and Sumo Cyco brought headbangage to Long Island for a royal rager at The Space at Westbury Theater on May 9th. Cane Hill were on the tour as well, but had to jump off a few days before the NY gig due to “an unexpected injury.”
Canadian heavy rock unit Sumo Cyco opened the evening and performed a handful of tracks from their latest full-length, Opus Mar, including songs “Sleep Tight,” “Anti-Anthem,” “Free Yourself” and more. Nonpoint brought out the hits as well, playing “Bullet with a Name,” “Breaking Skin,” “I Said It,” “What a Day” and others, along with brand new songs “Dodge Your Destiny” and “Wheel Against Will.” Butcher Babies crushed the evening, headlining with a 16-song set consisting of favorites such as “Monster’s Ball,” “Igniter,” “Magnolia Blvd.,” new cuts “Lilith,” “They’re Coming to Take Me Away” (Napoleon XIV cover) and more.
