In Pictures: A Day To Remember’s Intimate Show At House Of Vans London
Last night (August 21) A Day To Remember played their first UK show in two years. But unlike their previous visits that packed out some of the country’s biggest arenas, the Florida heavyweights crammed 800 of their biggest fans into the House Of Vans for a very special, very intimate gig.
Packed inside the bricked railway arch, the air was thick with sweat and anticipation for a band who haven’t played a venue of this size in years. A Day To Remember long graduated out of darkened rooms, but last night in London they looked elated to be back, getting in the faces of the glistening mosh pit and Kerrang!‘s own photographer.
It was a night of firsts. Not only did they treat the House Of Vans to new track Degenerates, but frontman Jeremy McKinnon also revealed that ADTR’s new album will be called You’re Welcome.
The epic setlist was full of new and old favourites, including a welcome return of The Plot To Bomb The Panhandle. Throughout the 90-minute set, ADTR also blasted through I’m Made Of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?, Sometimes You’re The Hammer, Sometimes You’re The Nail and Sticks & Bricks.
