Everything Everything celebrated the release of their debut album 'Man Alive' by returning to the scene of their first ever London gig last night (September 2).

The band played an intimate Fly Presents show at the Barfly in Camden, to mark the record's release a few days before.

Dressed in white boiler suits similar to the uniform of the anarchist protest group the Wombles, the band performed a selection of tracks from 'Man Alive', after which they celebrated with fans by DJing.

Speaking to NME, the band revealed that the album could have had a very different name.

"I looked at all the lyrics and tried to pick a title out from that," frontman Jonathan Everything explained. "For a long time we thought 'Taj Mahal' was a really good title."

For more on the album, and why 'Man Alive' eventually won out, watch our video interview with the band on the right now.

Everything Everything played:

'Qwerty Finger'
'Suffragette Suffragette'
'Engine Room'
'Tin (The Manhole)'
'Final Form'
'Photoshop Handsome'
'NASA Is On Your Side'

Earlier this week, the band revealed that Take That have declared themselves big Everything Everything fans.
