In support of their new 3-track EP dubbed Private Room (consisting of B sides from their last two records), Canadian metal/hardcore gang Counterparts have teamed up with Being As An Ocean (who are supporting last year’s Waiting for Morning to Come) for a co-headlining U.S. tour featuring support from Have Mercy and Varials.

The five-week long outing ends tonight (10/21) at The Foundry in Philly, after hitting 23 additional markets, including the trek’s first stop, which happened at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre on September 20th. Counterparts ignited their set in NYC with “Monument” off of Private Room, continuing with “Bouquet” and “No Servant of Mine” from last year’s You’re Not You Anymore. The quintet also performed “Stranger,” “Choke,” “Burn,” and much more before ending their set with their track “You’re Not You Anymore,” which they are performing live for the first time on this run.

Being As An Ocean brought an equal amount of aggression to the stage, playing a slew of songs from Waiting for Morning to Come, like “OK,” “Dissolve,” “Black & Blue,” “Alone,” “Know My Name,” “Floating Through Darkness, They Seemed To,” “Glow,” and “Thorns.” How We Both Wondrously Perish‘s title-track, plus “The Poets Cry For More,” “L’exquisite Douleur,” and “Death’s Great Black Wing Scrapes the Air” rounded out the band’s setlist.
