NEUROSIS Return To New York City & Perform A Historic Set
Yesterday (January 19), NEUROSIS returned to New York City, Brooklyn to be more specific, in support of their tenth studio album entitled 'Honor Found In Decay'. The bands triumphant return after many years of silence, took place at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. A venue with "perfect" acoustics and with the perfect vibe for a band like NEUROSIS.
Not only did the band sound amazing, but they proved why they have been considered a forced to be reckoned with on and off stage ever since their inception in 1985. With a complete NEW look on stage, the bands music sounded more powerful without the visual distractions that they had with them for years. According to vocalist/guitarist Scott Kelly they wanted to strip down their set in order to have the music speak for itself, and they don't turn away the idea of one day bringing back their visual show. We personally think that there could have been more of a lighting show just to setup the mood during different songs; keeping one blue light during an entire show is definitely a bold statement.
For the most part, the fans were stoked with the song selection but there were a few fans that wanted to hear classics like "The Sun That Never Sets". However, NEUROSIS is the type of band is that real careful with their song selection so they don't end up becoming predictable.
The bands set list was as follows:
