On September 24, 2009 Dead by April played a show at Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg. Opening acts for the show was Loving Chokes.


Dead by April's first hometown show since Metaltown on June 29, 2009. In addition, the band also played on Sticky Fingers in May 2009, as part of their "release concerts". 

Before the concert Pontus and Johan was interviewed by the Swedish metal site Crank It Up. During the interview, Pontus revealed that they will play a song never previously performed during the concert. [1] Fairly safe we can say that this is the first time ever that I Made It was performed live, as there are no audio recordings of this song before this gig.
