London date of NME New Breed Tour ends with stage invasion during Superfood set

Honeyblood and Bad Sounds also performed at Dingwalls in Camden

The NME New Breed Tour stopped off in London last night (November 11), culminating in Superfood sparking a mass stage invasion at the end of their set.

The Birmingham band incited a moshpit for their 45-minute set at Camden Dingwalls which caused the stage crew to push the crowd back on a number of occasions.

Before ‘Don’t Say That’, singer Dom Ganderton stepped in to help out, telling the crowd: “You guys have got to be more careful down the front. You’re getting squashed, aren’t you?”


But the audience continued to push forward throughout their set, which relied heavily on their recently released debut album, prompting the frontman to appeal once again before they launched into closing track ‘Superfood’. “I’ve got to get you to turn round and push away from us,” he said before adding: “Thank you for coming down. This has been the fucking best show. Thanks.”

Despite his appeal, the fans invaded the stage for a short period, before security eventually cleared the stage.

Superfood played:

‘Like A Daisy’
‘You Can Believe’
‘Don’t Say That’
‘Houses On The Plain’
‘Mood Bomb’
‘Right On Satellite’

Earlier, joint headliners Honeyblood also drew a raucous crowd for their set as they performed tracks from their self-titled debut album.

Hailing the moshpit ahead of ‘All Dragged Up’, singer Stina Tweeddale said: “You guys are up for it tonight, you guys fucking rock. Are you guys up for jumping?”


The Glasweigan duo drew huge cheers throughout their performance as they played ‘Choker’, ‘No Spare Key’ and ‘Super Rat’. Ahead of the latter, Tweeddale told the crowd: “This NME tour has been fucking great. We hope they are going to say the same about us,” before drummer Shona McVicar joked: “They’ll probably say we were OK – average.”

Honeyblood played:

‘Fall Forever’
‘(I’d Rather Be) Anywhere But Here’
‘No Spare Key’
‘All Dragged Up’
‘Super Rat’
‘Killer Bangs’

Local band Bad Sounds kicked off the evening with a 20-minute set of ’70s indebted pop tracks, including ‘Living Alone’.

The NME New Breed Tour concludes in Brighton at The Haunt tonight (November 12).
