Let's be honest here this gig was only marginally more live than most the performances at the olympic closing ceremony or yr average top of the pops. I was really looking forward to this as had missed Islington Mill then been let down when they did their no show but have rarely been so disappointed by a band, especially one that everyone says put on a great show. No one can doubt Zach's live presence and enthusiastic performance but take that away and there was nothing left but a pre recorded show
Disappointed too, set was short. Once the set got over half way through Ride even stopped doing anything and just let the backing track take over and shouted the occasional word. Doubt I'll be seeing them again.
Although I did laugh at all of the 17 year old white kids wearing the NLDW cover t-shirts.
Those Bro fists were basically punches to the fist haha, he also gave me a thick lip when he launched himself onto the front row at the start, it was awesome!. I've seen hundreds of metal bands live but I've never been crushed so much before, I had to fight to catch my breath. All good fun!
I enjoyed it, thought Islington Mill last year was better but still had a good time. Knew it was sold out so expected it to be packed but holy shit, spent basically the whole set crushed at the front with my arms trapped. Did get to bro fist Ride at the start though!
Brilliant, just brilliant the crowd was just great and the energy was insane. Met Zach and Ride afterwards they were so nice (picture with Zach, too, Ride's too reclusive for pictures I suppose). So worth the trip from Birmingham.
