Images of The Heavy performing live at KOKO, London

The Heavy by Dan Griffiths

Here are some images of The Heavy which I took on Thursday night at their show at KOKO, London. The band's frontman Kelvin Swaby was very energetic and made them a great band to photograph. In between songs he mentioned that last time they played the capital it was at the Borderline which is a pretty impressive leap in venue size! Click on the thumbnails below to launch the pictures in a light box.

The band released their first single 'That Kind of Man' in 2007 on Don't Touch Recordings. It was mixed mixed by Corin Dingley before Ninja Tune discovered it and promptly signed the band, Kelvin, Dan and Corin. The Heavy released their new album 'The Glorious Dead' in August last year.

Here are some images of Halestorm kicking off their tour in Camden’s Electric Ballroom last night. The quartets London shows was great and front woman Lzzy Hale has a pretty flawless vocal.

Halestorm are from Red Lion, Pennsylvania. The group’s self-titled debut album was released in 2009 and their second album ‘The Strange Case Of…’ was released last year. The song ‘Love Bites (So Do I)’ from that album won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance in February. The band consists of Lzzy Hale, Arejay Hale, Joe Hottinger and Josh Smith.
