Video: Fearless Vampire Killers backstage in London

Reckon you could keep your cool if you were faced with interviewing your favourite band?

After entering our competition to meet Fearless Vampire Killers at their London KOKO show earlier this month, Matthew Hayhoe did just that.

Self-confessed mega fan, Matthew, put his favourite band through their paces in the capital, as he talked bad touring habits, writing new material and causing mischief across the world.

Watch the full interview here to find out how he got on…

Fearless Vampire Killers, 05/03/15, supporting In This Moment at KOKO, London

Fearless Vampire Killers are wrapping up their UK support slot with In This Moment, with a mega set at London’s iconic KOKO.

Kier Kemp and co open their support set with the ever-explosive Say What You Want From Me from 2014’s Unbreakable Hearts. Despite the majority of the crowd attending for the headline act, this opener got the crowd buzzed in true support-act spirit.

Continuing their set with the anthemic Maeby ensured the audience’s attention remained completely focused on the alternative rockers.

Slightly lowering the tempo with Bite Down On My Winchester, from 2012’s Militia of the Lost, allowed the band to play a song that is obviously close to their hearts.

For those who weren’t familiar with the band’s back catalogue of two albums, they opted to play a “bastard-ised” (their words, not mine) cover of Elton John’s I’m Still Standing. The venue’s synonymous disco ball was lit up for this true pop-turned-rock anthem perfectly.

Laurence took over singing duties for single, All Hallows Evil, as well as my personal favourite song, Could We Burn, Darling?

Finishing with the title track from 2014’s Unbreakable Hearts, it was clear FVK truly has conquered their second trip to KOKO, and, in my opinion, stole the show.

With only two albums of material to choose from, I feel the set included the most well known songs from the first album, as well as performing the familiar songs from the second release. Despite the limited stage space (In This Moment brought a whole lot of stage props), the show was truly spectacular. Until next time!
