The Blackout - New Video Shoot

Last Saturday I headed down to Islington Academy at noon to take part in The Blackout's video shoot for their new single, ..this is why we cant have nice things. Essentially a live video, it saw 560 kids pile into the venue to act as a rabid audience for the video. The minute the band took to the stage they were met with deafening screams from the throng of kids, and despite the repeated run throughs of the track their enthusiasm didn't wane for a second.

The video also featured an appearance from You Me At Six frontman Josh, wh features on the track, not to mention a rowdy finale that sees members of Kids In Glass Houses, We Are The Ocean and Young Guns taking to the stage also (Laurent from Gallows arrived just too late to make the shoot!)

The real icing on the cake for the ammassed fans was when the band decided to treat them to a frantic five song set by way of a thankyou. The songs, largely taken from the bands latest album, Best In Town, sounded huge. The crowd also sounded massive, even though they were a fraction of the size the band would usually have at a London show! Just can't wait to see the video now!
