I have managed to have the pleasure to see Moose Blood five times before last night and once again the lads from Canterbury certainly didn’t disappoint at Southampton’s 1865. In fact it was the best I’ve seen them live by far and you could really see that lead singer Eddy Brewerton enjoyed himself throughout the evening. It was however a first time I’ve seen the support acts Greywind and the Winter Passing who both absolutely killed their sets respectively.
First up was Greywind and I’m really struggling to see how this was only their second ever show (the first being the night before) as the two-piece alternative rock band shown no fear throughout their 30 minute set and enjoyed every single second of it. I managed to speak to one half of the Irish duo, Steph O’Sullivan, and it was really refreshing to see how humble she was and offered to take a photo minutes after her epic set. The voice of Steph really shined through on the evening as her powerful vocals completely overpowered the venue when singing the hit single Forest Ablaze. You can tell this is just the start of for Steph and Paul O’Sullivan as they proved they are natural born performers and are certainly a band to look out for in the future. After the first act everyone almost seemed shocked how good these guys were and that was just first act of the evening and was a good sign for the rest of the night.
Fellow Irish band The Winter Passing was next on the line up and once again they lived up to the high expectations left by the opening act. The four-piece indie band again was fronted by a female singer Kate Flynn who once again a beautiful but powerful voice on her. They sung hits of their A Different Space of Mind and despite not seeing or not hearing much of these guys before they gave you an impression that you already had. Kate interacted with the sold out venue superbly throughout the set and made sure that they experience an unforgettable atmosphere. Having stood to the left of the stage, I was joined by Moose Blood’s guitarist Kyle Todd who is probably one of the most humblest person you will ever meet and took some time to watch these guys and you could just tell that Kyle really enjoyed the set as did the majority of the packed out building. The lighting for the set was just spot on as well and complemented the superb vocals all three acts performed on the evening. I managed to speak to Kate and the rest of the band after the show and you could just tell how happy they were to be at the venue performing. I even got a signed copy of their album which to be honest made my night.
As the second act finished, there was a wait of around 20 minutes before Moose Blood came on to the stage however that wait felt longer than usual as the anticipation of the seeing Eddy and the rest of the band live once again really took me by stride. Finally the wait was over and the spot light was on the four-piece band who have been making waves in the music industry lately having signed up to massive record label Hopeless Records and set to release a new album this summer with an initial release date of 5th August. The lads played songs from the epic I’ll Keep You In Mind From Time To Time albumamong their older EPs. However one thing was refreshing that Moose Blood played two new songs on the evening and the vibe that these songs gave off was typical to what you expect from the emo band. One of these songs could well of been Honey that gets released this Monday and will be played on Radio One’s Rock Show on Sunday. The song has an almost 50s feel to it and judging on the teaser video that the band released on social media, it set it is set to be one of their best creations to date. Having seen Moose Blood a number of times before I knew what to expect however they just keep on getting better and better. Their performance of Bukowski and I Hope You’re Miserable really got the crowd moving and there was plenty of crowd surfing and even a hint of moshing within the crowd. You can see how much passion went into Anyway which was about Eddy’s mum and the beautifully performed Cherry that means the world to the lead singer. I managed to stand on the chairs on the left side of the stage with a few others so I got the best view of the band however one thing I did notice is how the crowd reacted during the gig. This is something I never really notice as I’m normally bang in the middle however it was amazing to see each and every one of the fans just singing and experiencing the songs. Finally Moose Blood ended the evening with the classic Gum which was an amazing end to an amazing night. For this song I had to get to right in the middle as it meant a lot to me. When I saw these guys at Reading Festival this song was the first ever song I crowd surfed to as before I’ve never had the confidence to do so. So I did attempt this once again on the night however it seems I have put on a bit of timber since. As the night finished, fans queued up for merch and spoke to their favourite band members as once again Moose Blood put on an amazing night and chose some great support acts to compliment them.
Moose Blood have revealed that they have signed to Hopeless Records for their up coming album set to be released in the summer. The lads from Canterbury started their sold UK tour this evening at Bristol’s Fleece.

And this was of course after playing at Reading Festival and Warped Tour for the first time last year so lead singer Eddy Brewerton and the rest of the band has a lot to live up to in 2016.

While in the US late last year, the band worked on their next album with American musician and record producer Beau Burchell.
The album is due to come out this year through No Sleep Records and after the success of I’ll Keep You in Mind, From Time to Time in the US and UK, there is no doubt this eagerly awaited album will be another hit.
It’s been over a year since Moose Blood released their last album and already they have
revealed there will be 12 songs in the upcoming album.
You can make out several song names from the photo released on
Including ‘Sway’, ‘I Pad’ and ‘Paws’. What makes this information even more interesting is that the picture reveals the album will have some sort of EDM (Electronic Dance Music)
which is something not scene before by the band.
