Gallows gave a sarcastic shout-out to fans of Manchester United at Leeds Festival tonight (August 29).

Watch a video interview with guitarist Laurent Barnard by clicking on the right.

Frontman Frank Carter dedicated 'Come Friendly Bombs' to "upset" supporters of the team, which beat Arsenal 2-1 hours earlier in a Premier League match.

Carter was in a typically outspoken mood throughout the gig, telling fans who didn't want to mosh to leave the NME/Radio 1 tent before taking a pot shot at northern drinking habits.

"Are you all fucking wasted? Of course you are, you're up north," he remarked.

The frontman reserved kinder words for the tent's security team, encouraging fans to give them a round of applause for their efforts controlling crowd-surfers.

The set was made up of songs from both of the Watford punks' albums, including tracks from recent LP 'Grey Britain' such as 'Misery and 'London Is The Reason'.

Tunes from their debut album 'Orchestra Of Wolves', such as 'In The Belly Of A Shark', inspired fans to form large circle pits, while Carter stalked the stage moodily throughout.

Gallows played:

'The Riverbed'
'London Is The Reason'
'Come Friendly Bombs'
'I Dread The Night'
'The Vulture (Act II)'
'Abandon Ship'
'Gold Dust'
'In The Belly Of A Shark'
'Orchestra Of Wolves'
