It had been a little over two years since Evergrey last played at the Gas Monkey Bar & Grill. During that time vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Tom S. Englund went through some hard times in his personal life. As is the case with many artists, the personal turmoil resulted in what many (including myself) consider to be their best album yet. In a time where most fans go to a show just to hear "the old shit," Tom and his bandmates, Henrik Danhage (guitars), Rikard Zander (keyboards), Johan Niemann (bass) and Jonas Ekdahl (drums), could have played the entire new album and no one would have been disappointed.
But that was not the case.
While they did do one more new song, "All I Have" later in the show, the rest of the set was filled with classics and favorites. Highlights included "Recreation Day," "Black Undertow," "A Touch of Blessing" and the final encore "King of Errors." Another great show from one of Sweden's best.
