Metalcore powerhouse August Burns Red tear through The National in Richmond (with Fit For A King, Miss May I and Crystal Lake)

Metalcore powerhouse August Burns Red stopped in Richmond, VA with their friends, Fit For A King, Miss May I and Crystal Lake to play for an energetic sold out crowd. Most shows with a four-band line up will usually have a slow build up in energy but this show was an exception.

The National is a venue in Richmond that doesn’t allow moshing or crowd surfing, but with this line up, there was little chance that fans weren’t going to enjoy themselves. Crystal Lake, which hails from Japan, set the bar for the intense show. After Crystal Lake took the stage, the crowd almost immediately broke the venue’s rule of no moshing as the majority of the floor, which was packed from the beginning, broke into a circle pit.

The night carried on in the same fashion – absolutely electric. The headliner, August Burns Red, played some of their popular material and wrapped the night with an encore, which included a Zelda cover that has been making the rounds on digital platforms and the Internet recently.
