SKAM, Texas Flood & Stonehead - The Exchange, Bristol, 23rd August 2014

This was the last gig of SKAM's first headline tour of the UK in support of their second album, 'Peacemaker'. Sadly, it was also the last gig with this line-up as drummer Ray (X-Ray) announced his departure from the band shortly after. 

Having struggled with my Canon EOS 550D at SKAM's previous gig at the Exchange in February, I managed to grab hold of the new Nikon D810 and as soon as Stonehead launched into their riff and head banging heavy set, I knew it was a wise decision - the light was almost non-existent for the whole of the first half.  Thankfully it improved. The images are a bit noisier than what I would have liked, but I'm certainly impressed with the results - and seriously considering the switch over to Nikon (da da daaaaaahhhnn!) ;)
