OATHBREAKER Photo Tour Diary Part Four: Seattle


Text and Photos: Bobby Cochran

Seattle – 3.31.17

A mercifully short drive between cities gives everyone time to relax and enjoy the rare sunshiney day in this typically dark and rainy town.  The band joins me for a quick photo session at a nearby park, then spends some time wandering the Capitol Hill neighborhood before it’s time to head back to the venue for soundcheck.  Another local band opens, and Jaye Jayle are joined onstage by Ben Verellen of local greats Helms Alee.  The extra guitar pushes the band’s sound into new, more powerful territory.  Khemmis kills it once again, and pave the way nicely for another formidable set by Oathbreaker.  Tonight’s set (as with the previous nights) is comprised primarily of songs from their latest release, Rhea, save the closer, “Glimpse of the Unseen.”  Oathbreaker have the crowd in the palm of their hand, and their sound is tight, precise, and powerful.  As usual.  It’s time for post-show goodbyes, and I’m definitely sad to be leaving.  They’ve got a long drive to Boise, ID, and I’ve got a long drive back to California, so we hug, part ways, and rejoin the long and lonesome highway that carry us from city to city.
