The second part of the “Looking Back on Warped Tour” series features New Years Day and Ashley Costello.  It is absolutely not every day where a frontperson simply captivates one’s attention through their stage presence and vocals.  Ashley Costello of New Years Day certainly did that with her mesmerizing stage presence and her amazingly beautiful looks along with a versatile voice that sounded sweet and serene in one breath, and sounded shrilling in the next breath.  New Years Day had a crazy stage presence combining their gothic look, crazy stage antics, and the ability to hold the audience in the palm of their hand.

I also saw New Years Day open up for Halestorm and Starset on the “Halloween Scream” tour, and while I was into them, some of the audience weren’t into them, then again Iowa can be quite a tough crowd.  I feel that their niche is with the Warped Tour and festival crowd.

Here is the setlist that New Years Day had:

  1.  I’m No Good
  2.  Kill Or Be Killed
  3.  Other Side
  4.  Malevolence
  5.  Angel Eyes
  6.  Defame Me
