Internationally recognized metal core band Blessthefall (BTF) will be playing at the Crofoot Ballroom on Thursday, September 20, 2018 in Pontiac, MI. The bands appearance in Pontiac will mark the 17th stop on their 2018 Hard Feelings Headlining tour. Coming off the recent release of their 6th album Hard Feelings in March, the band has started 2018 out with an explosive energy that they will continue to carry on throughout the year. The five-piece Phoenix, AZ based act will also be sharing the stage with hardcore bands The Word Alive, Ded, Thousand Below and A War Within.
Two weeks before kicking off the Hard Feelings tour, BTF’s drummer Matt Traynor announced that he will be making his departure from the band as soon as the tour has ended. “Making the choice to step away from something that I have been a part of since its origin has been bittersweet”, says Traynor. “I’m so proud to see how far BTF has gone and all the experiences I’ve had.” Far Out Midwest has had the pleasure of covering Matt during his time with BTF and would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
