Opening up for Finnish rockers Poets Of The Fall is upcoming sensation Tom Lumley & The Brave Liaison. A band that has come out of the woodworks with a bang, working hard releasing four singles and a debut album, 2021’s Everythings Affected, this is a band that doesn’t stop. Supporting huge acts like Sam Fender and The Hunna along with playing the Isle of Wight Festival, this is surely enough evidence to show this is a band on the up.

With a rammed venue and a short set, the band is ready to give the crowd what they want. Giving us three singles “Shrink,” “Casual,” and “Say Nothing,” you need to look no further than these to see what Tom and the band have to offer. With vibes of Feeder, The Fratellis and Maximo Park, this is an act well worth checking out.

Hitting the UK for a short run of headline shows, Finnish rock band Poets Of The Fall has just released their brilliant new album Ghostlight. It’s been three years since the band played in the UK and both them and fans fill with excitement for the night. As the group confidently takes to the stage at the beginning of their set, it’s obvious that, after the three-year wait, the band is going to make sure these fans aren’t left disappointed.

The group kick off their set with “Requiem for my Harlequin,” the brand new single from Ghostlight and it’s one of many fan favourites performed tonight. Those fan favourites include “My Darkest Disquiet” another track the fans absolutely love. However, no matter how good the main set was, the band was clearly saving the best gems until last in the form of “Lift” and “Carnival of Rust.”

From start to finish Poets of the Fall took us on a rollercoaster ride, with these fans more than happy to hang on tight and enjoy this magical ride.
