They use those band’s live performances as the inspiration for their energy filled live set. Utilizing a two frontman set up of clean and alternative vocals and drawing from their well of emotional lyrics and awe inspiring stage presence, Outlands is able to illicit a passionate and interactive crowd reaction.
