Our dear friend James Knoerl (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAME) recently went on tour as the live drummer for Heavy Blog favorite act Native Construct, who recently released the powerful Quiet World to great critical acclaim.

With a stellar lineup of Wings Denied and Outrun the Sunlight at their backs, the rising progressive giants shredded their way through the Eastern US and some of the Midwest, dominating several stops along the way, including Chicago [photos]. Photographer/videographer Jonathan Earley captured some spectacular footage of drummer James Knoerl (happy birthday, jame) during the performance of “Passage” at Michigan’s Token Lounge. Footage edited by Outrun the Sunlight’s Austin Peters.

Check out the footage below!

If you missed Native Construct on this tour, don’t worry! They’ll be hitting the road again really soon as support for Between the Buried and Me, Enslaved, and Intronaut. Click here for tour dates!
