Some bands stage a comeback only to fizzle out and return to the dead from whence it came. Finch is unquestionably not one of those bands. After scaring fans with an “indefinite hiatus” in 2006, the band staged its comeback over five years ago and not only is it still alive, but doing better than ever. This time around the band wants to repeat that success, because it’s going back to where it all started—The Glass House. The Temecula natives rocked the ‘90s with a hardcore style that was all their own, and kept at it for at least a decade. But apparently, you can’t keep a good thing down. If you find yourself enticed by promises of “Bitemarks and Bloodstains” or “Letters to Burn,” then there’s no way you could be content anywhere else but right in the front row, headbanging yourself into oblivion. These anniversary shows are commemorating the birth of the band and have regrouped all of the original members, who returned to the scene after the fans gave them all the live footage they had to compile for a DVD. Finch did them one better and promised to return for more than one night. This tour is a gift to the fans, and especially for anyone who has a penchant for the post-hardcore. This is your night to see them perform “What It Is to Burn” for the first time live.
