NASHVILLE, TN – On March 5, 2021, Chase Atlantic released their highly anticipated album beauty in death. After several singles were released afterwards, in May 2022 they released their first deluxe edition of an album, adding a total of six new songs (three of which were released between albums). To mark this release and capitalize on their growing popularity, they announced their Cold Nights Tour which would take place in North America from July 6 to August 26.
On August 4, 2022, the trio found themselves headlining a sold-out show in Nashville at the Marathon Music Works.
Joining the special evening were friend and collaborator Xavier Mayne and rising TikTok-based musician Leah Kate.
The first to take the stage was a friend of Chase Atlantic, fellow Australian Xavier Mayne. Mayne had a few singles featuring Chase Atlantic in his discography, making it a perfect opener for one of Chase Atlantic’s biggest tours to date.
Xavier played many of his new songs from his freshly released album TWENTY ONE EPs, including “Automatic”, “Reaction” and “Peaches and Palm Trees”.
After Mayne, rising TikTok-based musician Leah Kate. His tracklist includes the famous “Twinkle Twinkle” and “10 Things I Hate About You”.
Although his style differs wildly from Chase Atlantic and Xavier Mayne, it was a truly unique experience that somehow managed to complement the show itself in a beautiful way. Of the three performances of the evening, Kate was certainly the most interactive with her fans, frequently reaching out and taking hands or completing hearts.
When Chase Atlantic started their performance, it turned the whole venue into a party. Everyone was shouting the lyrics and jumping around, giving everyone time to breathe and leave all their troubles at the door. Chase Atlantic entertained the crowd with several fan-favorite songs from their discography.
Australian trio Chase Atlantic have come a long way since their debut EP, banterin 2014.
From various songs exploding on social media, such as TikTok, to their unique sound that blends rock and R&B with dark alt themes underlying, this boy band has come a long way in their career.
Across all of their streaming platforms, Chase Atlantic has amassed over 200 million streams of all of their albums and EPs.
The band played many of their most popular songs, such as Atlantic Hunt (2017) “Into It”, STEPS (2019) “TOO LATE”, and BEAUTY IN DEATH (2021) “On the roof”. Their setlist has been perfectly crafted to give attendees the best and funnest night of their lives.
There was so much energy in all the performers of the night. It was remarkable how connected everyone was. People left with not only the joy of seeing their favorite band, but also of making several new friends while they waited for the show to begin.
