On May 27, 2018 Akadia took The House of Blues stage in support of National Headliners, Trivium and Tooth Grinder. In the “damn near sold-out show”, the band played a killer set of 11 songs which included the debut of their new song, Break These Chains.

Guitarist, Ryan Duke, teased fans with an announcement a new song would be played in a Facebook live stream hours before the event which kicked off at 7pm.

The House of Blues on Decatur Street, in the heart of the French Quarter,  holds a special place in all 5 member’s hearts as they are all home-grown, Lousiana boys who grew up dreaming of taking the same stage as some of the titans of blues and rock. A dream which has now been realized 5 times.

The band had little time to celebrate as they were looking ahead to their next show the following evening which would take them to The Southport Music Hall in New Orleans to play alongside Nonpoint, Butcher Babies and Islander.
