Superfood and Honeyblood bring NME New Breed Tour to a close in Brighton

The bands played the final show of the run at The Haunt last night (November 12)

Superfood and Honeyblood brought the NME New Breed Tour to a close last night (November 12) with a final gig in Brighton.

Local band Demob Happy kicked off proceedings at The Haunt, playing recent single ‘Suffer You, Suffer You’ and new track ‘Succubus’ among others.

Glaswegian duo Honeyblood then took to the stage to play tracks from their self-titled debut album. Responding to chants of “Wednesday” in the crowd, new drummer Cat joked, “I’m glad we’ve got you to tell us what day it is. In Leeds we were convinced it was a Tuesday and it was really embarrassing.”

They then requested the crowd went “mental” for the fast-paced ‘All Dragged Up’, remembering a previous gig in Brighton where fans had hung from the lights. Honeyblood finished their set with ‘Super Rat’ and recent single ‘Killer Bangs’. “I’m so sad, this is our last song,” announced Stina Tweeddale before the latter.

Superfood closed the night with a rowdy run through of songs from their recently released debut LP ‘Don’t Day That’. Bassist Emily Baker walked onstage carrying a wedge of watermelon, which she placed on an amp behind her. The Birmingham band kicked off their set with ‘Bubbles’ and ‘TV’.

“This is the last track on our album,” singer and guitarist Dom Ganderton informed the crowd before ‘Like A Daisy’, afterwards noting the band were going from end to beginning as they played ‘You Can Believe’. Fans formed a circle pit during ‘Mood Bomb’ while penultimate track ‘Right On Satellite’ saw the waves of crowdsurfers get more intense. During set closer ‘Superfood’ Baker threw her watermelon at guitarist Ryan Malcolm while Ganderton jumped briefly into the crowd.
