Despite the public transportation strikes turning Helsinki’s center into a ghost town on February 2nd, 2024, the anticipation for the triple treat of SELF DECEPTIONONE MORNING LEFT, and DEAD BY APRIL at Tavastia stage drew a massive crowd. The line to enter wrapped around the block, but everyone got inside really fast after the door were opened. Despite concerns about the strikes affecting the show, the event went on without a hitch. The venue was packed well before the first notes echoed through the air.

Closing the night with grandeur were Swedish headliners DEAD BY APRIL, frequent visitors to the Helsinki scene. Featuring tracks from their latest album, “The Affliction,” the audience warmly embraced the fresh material. Adding an unexpected twist, the band brought on guest Samuel Ericsson, a martial artist and social media influencer, injecting rap elements into select songs. The fusion seamlessly fits into the DEAD BY APRIL show, creating a memorable experience for everyone present.
