The New England-based post-hardcore band celebrated 15 years here in Boston with a special “Thanksgigging” performance at the historic House of Blues. The boys of Our Last Night stopped by Boston on their Let Light Overcome the Darkness tour. The house was packed as the openers pumped the crowd with the excitement to finally have area natives back on their stage.
From playing gigs in little towns like Derry, New Hampshire to traveling the world with their headlining tour, the boys came back with their 2019 tourwhich celebrates their two-part record released this past year: Let Light Overcomewas released in February 2019, and the second half titled Overcome the Darkness was released in November this year, just as OLN began their fall touring schedule.
The set started with their hit “Same Old War” from their 2013 EP Oak Island: this song has accumulated 12 million views on their Youtube page alone. Before the song had even begun, crowd surfers had taken their positions above the crowd.
Their entire set did not focus on the songs that have earned the most plays on Spotify or other major streaming platforms but rather they played singles from as far back as their earliest EP release from 2008 called The Ghost Among Us. There was a heavy focus on the two part albums as well as songs from their 2017 release of Selective Hearing. This show was seemingly exclusively for the original fans who stuck with them for these past 15 years, as they watched their favorite local band grow into a major metal sensation.
OLN is notorious for their cover songs like “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons, “Dark Horse” by Katy Perry, “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran and many more you can find on their Youtube channel. The band knew better than to leave out an epic cover for the crowd to interact with and performed “Humble” by Kendrick Lamar. Finally they left us with an epic encore of “Sunrise.”
