Opening up the festivities at Projekt Revolution, New Jersey rockers Armor for Sleep ripped into their set with a ferocity that would set the tone for festival. With plastic tarps covering the stage monitors and storm clouds amassing on the horizon, the four-piece was undeterred, and brought a spirited force to the Revolution Stage. By the way these Jersey boys performed, you'd think they were closing down the stage instead of opening it.
I hadn't heard much from Armor For Sleep, but I was impressed by the energy these guys brought to the Rev Stage, especially as the first band of the day. Apart from Atreyu, Armor For Sleep was my favorite band to photograph before the main stage acts.
In particular, frontman Ben Jorgensen brought a lot of energy to the performance and frequently leaned in toward the crowd, which made for some nice photo opportunities.
With a pair of blazing butterfly wings as the band's backdrop, naturally I couldn't leave the pit without setting up drummer Nash Breen.
I'd love to see what these guys can do in a club performance with some great lighting, they were the perfect start to a long day of the fun acts. Stay tuned for the final set of Projekt Revolution on ishootshows.com: Linkin Park.
