The Twilight Sad – Split Festival 2014
Sunderland 10th August 2014
By popular demand, here is my full image gallery of a special set by The Twilight Sad. Scotland’s finest play the 2nd Stage today, which proves a perfect setting, dark gloomy with epic backlighting and a storm lashing outside. Today they treat us to their first album in full, the modern classic ‘Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters’.
This marks my 4th time seeing the band and my second on this LP tour, having made a 200 mile round trip pilgrimage to see them at the Brudenell in the summer. I’d jumped at the chance to cover Split fest having spotted their name on the bill, to say I was looking forward to this is an understatement! They pulled off one of the best performances of the festival, winning over new fans, critics and of course us old fans. I think I sang along whilst snapping away. Sometimes my job is rewarding, today is one of those days. Great, great band. And a great band to photo, trying to capture that intensity is tough but rewarding.
Anyway, I waffle. Pics, that’s what you asked for…
