Everything Everything previewed their debut album for fans at Leeds Festival today (August 27).

The band played seven songs from ‘Man Alive’, which is released on Monday (August 30).

The crowd, a lot of whom were wearing neon clothes and glow-in-the-dark make-up for the set, chanted the group’s name as they took to the NME/Radio 1 Stage.

Some festival goers ran from the other stages as the band broke into former single ‘Schoolin”.

Lead singer Jonathan Higgs started singing the lyrics to Rihanna‘s ‘Rude Boy’ halfway through the track before announcing: “It’s really nice to see so many of you here to watch us this afternoon, thank you.”

Everything Everything played:

‘Qwerty Finger’
‘Suffragette Suffragette’
‘Schoolin’/’Rude Boy”
‘Tin (The Manhole)’
‘MY KZ, UR BF’
‘Photoshop Handsome’
‘Weights’
