Opening performances by The Living Breathing.
The Living Breathing is an American Rock band formed in the summer of 2011. Brothers Matt and Mason Haley joined forces with longtime band mates Steven Natale and Joey Moraga. Together they wrote a few songs, and quickly realized there was a strong musical chemistry. After a couple of EPs, TLB played some shows and suddenly their fan base began to grow at a rapid pace. In August 2013, TLB had an opportunity to open for Queensryche at The Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, AZ. Their 30 minute set ended with a standing ovation from the crowd of 1500 people. Many new fans were introduced to TLB at this show. This show also opened the door for TLB to support such acts as Three Days Grace, Red Sun Rising, Candlebox, Soul Asylum and others.
In January 2015, TLB traveled to Lis Angeles and teamed with the up and coming Production Company called Punk Aristocrats. There they would record their first full-length album titled “Plastic”. After much anticipation, the album was released in September 2015 to very high reviews. With hits such as “Sweat”, “Peace Be with Me” and “Live Forever”, TLB is at the forefront of what is sure to be an explosion of mass proportion on the rock horizon. They are currently unsigned and seeking a label and management who will take them to new heights, and allow the world to hear what The Living Breathing is all about!
