This time last year, we called Lake Malice ‘the UK’s most exciting new alt.metal band’, and ever since then, we’ve been desperate to see them headline a show here.

And on Wednesday, December 6 at Camden’s Black Heart, the duo – Alice Guala and Blake Cornwall – and their backing band finally delivered, giving us the ultimate Christmas present in the form of their first-ever UK headline date.
