TTNG, formerly known as This Town Needs Guns came on stage. These Oxford gents were cheered on by fans of all ages. Frontman Henry Tremain takes on lead melodic vocals and bass, while brothers Tim and Chris Collis cover guitar and drums. The three-piece prove top of their game when it comes to technical stylings. Beginning their set with a track from their recent album release Disappointment Island, TTNG were just warming up. The set didn’t even get to track number three before they broke a guitar string. Taking the time to grab a new one, fans anxiously stood by waiting for this magic to continue. They really are just that, magical. From any spot in the crowd, you caught people swaying with their eyes closed, hands up to the ceiling, even some tears being shed… all the feels were present.
Disappointment Island is TTNG’s third full-length studio album and most definitely not the last. These guys take such pride in their work and it shows through their deliverance. Well done, gents.
