Sheffield band, Dead Sons live at the Nation of Shopkeepers, Leeds, Yorkshire

Posted on 12th January 2012 by Mark Tierney

Here is something different from me and my first gig I have photographed. The band are called Dead Sons and are from Sheffield, South Yorkshire. The gig was held at the Nation of Shopkeepers in Leeds. I loved the energy of the band especially the drummers. The Dead Sons supported the Arctic Monkeys at Don Valley Bowl last year which must have been amazing. If you get the chance to see them live you won’t be disappointed! Check this video out: Dead Sons - Shotgun Woman


Dead Sons were introduced to the world in July 2010, in front of an eager capacity crowd, as part of Sheffield's Tramlines Festival.
This gig marked the beginning of a whirlwind journey for the band which has taken them far and wide. From theatres to vintage shops, stadiums to cellars, brandishing their unprecedented sound and demonic, powerful stage presence.The young band have honed their unique style both on the road and locked away in the weary industrial surroundings of their Sheffield studio.They continue to grow as one, exploring all dimensions of song writing and noise making. Not afraid to push the limits and always striving for the perfect sound. - website
