The undisputed kings of shoegaze, or rather nu-gaze are back in Leeds, tonight. It’s a hazy, beautiful and cold evening that’s made even more special by local band, Magic Mountain supporting, in the absence of …Trail Of The Dead.
Vitriol run through classics like ‘Always: Your Way’ and ‘Cemented Shoes’ with a seemingly effortless cool, and infectious energy. It’s a sweaty, packed out Brudenell, and it’s the perfect venue for the return of one of UK rock’s most underrated bands.
Time away has done nothing to the band’s abilities on-stage; three consumate musicians present the best they have to offer over an extended ‘Finelines’ playthrough that excites casual fans, and clearly causes a great stir in emotion from those who have followed the band for over a decade.
Something truly special happened tonight, and we hope that the threesome feel the great impact of their work, enough to continue to build on their most excellent legacy.
