Abandon All Ships performed on the second night of the very first Southern Ontario Metal Fest in Port Burwell. They performed as the second headlining band of the night (along with Protest The Hero) and played an absolutely insane set. We captured the insanity on a Nikon D90, 50mm f/1.8.
They performed to a massive crowd, and incorporating both old and new songs into their set really got the audience singing and wanting more once it was all over. Absolutely incredible performance given by Dallas & co.
