Indie Rock stars Colony House are in the midst of their 2023 The Cannonballers Tour across America. They are supported on this tour by indie rock newcomers little image from Texas. While little image are slated to release their debut album “Self-Titled” on May 12th of this year, Colony House released their fourth studio album “The Cannonballers” this past month. Yesterday on March 7th Colony House and little image played a show in New York City’s Irving Plaza.

While I did miss little image performance just catching up on last chords of the last song, fans in audience were satisfied by what they saw and heard and let’s say were all warmed up for Colony House, while finding their best attraction in bouncing around the beach ball while waiting for the stage to be set up and wildly cheering up on every successful high bounce.
Stage décor was set heavily to emphasize the new album as the drum set has The Cannonballers written on and in the background band had a big neon silhouette of the boy jumping into the water like a cannonball.
Colony House came on stage with great amount of energy with their smash single “Landlocked Surf Rock” from their new album followed by another single “Would Ya Could Ya”. These two marked two out of eight songs Colony House played from The Cannonballers album, which was only three shy from the whole thing, and maybe I am wrong as I believe they included one more song later in the sort of a medley. Even though these are new songs the crowd sang them along as they would with established hits. Both brothers Caleb Chapman (vocals) and Will Chapman (drums) were performing with attitude of the hard rock band while Scott Mills on guitar and Parke Cottrell on bass were seemingly more laid back.

The rest of their set touched rest of their albums and Rotten Tomatoes EP. For me this was a rare insight into indie rock live show, and I must admit I had a pleasant time. Music and mood are mostly upbeat and positive, which is what we desperately need these days.
Band wrapped up their set with title song from The Cannonballers and their smash hit “You Know It” from their 2017 album Only The Lonely.
There is still a lot more time left to experience Colony House live as the tour will continue into the April.
