The crowd look bored to tears like they would rather be somewhere else anywhere in fact would do. As I can't go into negative figures for a score I'm gonna have to go with a not applicable.

The music has its catchy moments while remaining rather heavy, very bass driven at times too can really feel the rumble under it all. Overall not too bad, not my favourite of genres or a band I particularly like, but listenable and I can even understand the lyrics on the most part.

It's rather commercial stuff aimed squarely at the scene kids, I have nothing against this music or band but it really lacks substance to me, a throw away sound that hundreds of bands try to emulate with some being largely more successful than many others, I guess every label is looking for the next Paramore, and a few hits will get this band there them upwards. Overall they are a good band that can play and write really well, but there's nothing here that's gonna make me really want to listen more closely, it's just too polished and not enough far reaching for my liking, but they put on a real good live show and hey the kids love them and they are having a blast, a real good warm up for young guns.

They open with dearly departed a very lively opener and a great way to start the set they bounce on with weight of the world and crystal clear, this opening trio makes the crowd the liveliest It's been all evening even more so than when WATIC were on. They take things down a notch with You are not, it even had people breaking out the lighters and torches on cameras before taking it way up with a great high energy song to get the crowd going again with brothers in arms then taking things down again but only a little with stitches, a really good bouncy drum beat driven song.

After a very short break and with time running out on the night they went right into Winter Kiss and then there most popular and most catchy song Bones to round off a very excellent performance.

Marmozets 0/5
Your Demise 3/5
We Are The In Crowd 4/5
Young Guns 4.5/5
