ABSOLUTExclusive: Life After Liftoff Video From Sum 41...

Posted by: Ryan Gardner (02/28/13)
Life After Liftoff snagged the opening slot on the Norfolk, VA date of Sum 41's Does This Look Infected? Tour back in November. Today, we are excited to premere the video they put together with the Sum 41 camp about the experience: "Day In The Life: Opening Band Edition." The video was shot by Jacob Bonham and Katie Cole, both of Dangerkids and This Love. Hit the replies to watch it.
Opening for Sum41 was a dream come true. 10 years ago I saw them (for the first time) on the, "Does This Look Infected" tour with The Starting Line. That show will forever be one of the coolest shows I have ever been to. Through the years, Sum 41 have taught me so much about music and how to perform; so having the chance to open for them seemed like a dream. Stepping on that stage was such a gratifying feeling and something Life After Liftoff will never forget. To the fans, thank you for taking the time to listen to the opening band and cheering as loud as you could to make us feel welcome in your hometown.

Tom has ruined delay effects for me. And yeah, if you're playing a Tom guitar and using delay, you're automatically gonna make a bad first impression. I'm sorry, just no way around that.

I don't normally even take the time to "hate" on bands I don't like, but these guys are joking right?! The guy looks like Tom, plays like AvA, their symbol looks exactly like AvAs, there album is called "The Getaway" (hmm kinda like 'The Adventure"?) and their FB page has some self-righteous quote that sounds like Tom said it in 2006. I actually feel bad for these guys, it's actually pathetic, Here's the backstory of this band: "What do you guys wanna be for halloween this year?" "Ooooh, lets be Angels & Airwaves!" I weep for music.

So no band can name a song/album with the common format "the _____" because AvA did it? wut.

You can name it whatever you want but there is no way you can deny these guys are AVA ripoffs.

Oh they're welcome to use "The _____" but maybe their album title should be "THE Reason Why You'll Wish You Were Deaf"

Yea, well I wasn't making a comparison that they both use the word "The" only a third grader would think thats a comparison, Im talking about "Getaway" vs "Adventure" being the two songs in comparison here. Those are SYNONYMS. Thought that would be obvious. Anyway, I've already wasted 5 minutes of my life pointing out how unoriginal and terrible this is; which is kinda like pointing out that "Rosie O Donnell looks a little fat" So moving on..
