Just 6 days after the release of their outstanding 3rd album You Are We, While She Sleeps proved to a sold out 350 capacity Talking Heads that they won’t be playing venues of this size for much longer.

First up were Leeds alt rockers Fizzy Blood. As people still made their way into the venue, the quintet laid down fuzzy riffs and intricate verses, which exuded Queens of the Stone Age vibes, whilst still sounding unique and fresh. By the end of the set as the venue had filled out more the crowd seemed to be fully enjoying this set. Although not their normal surroundings, this was an accomplished set from Fizzy Blood who more than won over the audience.

Next up were In Hearts Wake. Opening with, arguably their best song, Mayhem, a few in the crowd erupted and were clear fans of the band. Despite this a lot of the crowd weren’t overly enthused. Coupling this with some sound problems and In Hearts Wake struggled to truly get going. It was always going to be hard for In Hearts Wake especially when being compared to a band like While She Sleeps. This is particularly highlighted when the crowd seemed to find more interest in throwing an inflatable crocodile around during the set than watching the band themselves.
