Art of Anarchy Play First-Ever Live Show in New York City [Photos]
It was a special night for rock fans as Art of Anarchy performed their very first concert ever. The gig took place at New York City's Gramercy Theater, and before the show some members of Art of Anarchy talked with fans, with guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal saying, “This is the first show so anything that can go wrong probably will” he joked.
Art of Anarchy is comprised of former Creed frontman Scott Stapp, former Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Disturbed bassist John Moyer and brothers Jon and Vince Votta on guitar and drums. The band released their debut album in 2015, when the late Scott Weiland was their singer. However, for this show, the band performed tracks from their forthcoming new album set to be released in Spring 2017, as the set began with the hard-rocking tracks “Afterburn” and “No Surrender.”
The band as a whole seemed to have camaraderie and chemistry onstage after coming together only about a year ago. A sweat-soaked Stapp also belted out his original track “Somber.” The night ended with their current single, “The Madness.”
Support for the night included female-fronted act Cilver and despite their short set they rocked the house and performed new tracks from their latest album Not the End of the World. New York based band the Dives opened up the show with their bluesy rock sound. Check out our photo gallery above of all three acts performing in New York City.
