To celebrate a decade of success, Sumerian Records kicked off the Sumerian 10 Year Tour this past February. AFTER THE BURIAL performed at the second to the last show at the Reverb in Reading, PA.

The crowd was thrilled to see After the Burial appear for their set. The tragic death of longtime guitarist, Justin Lowe, was devastating. Understandably, the group dropped out of the 2015 Summer Slaughter Tour. During the performance, singer Anthony Notarmaso took time to thank the fans for the outpouring of cards, letters, encouragement and sympathy. It was a somber, heartfelt moment when he spoke and he made it clear that he and his bandmates were moved by devotion of their fans. For their set, they chose songs from most of their catalogue, including the 2008 release, Rareform. From their latest release, Dig Deep, they played “Lost in the Static” and “Collapse.”
