I flew to Madrid and hopped on the tour bus with Brand New for their European tour. Brand New are known for their lack of contact with press and I had total freedom to shoot the guys. It was an awesome experience.
It was amazing to capture the atmosphere on a tour of such small, intimate shows. It was so cool being able to document the guys’ offstage and general life on the road.
The highlights for me were an unreal show at Primavera and the huge end to the tour at The Brooklyn Bowl in London. Oh and a whole lot of hanging out at the Brew Dogs up and down the country.
A while later I hit the road again with the guys. This time a much larger tour around Europe. It was pretty much the opposite of the previous tour, the venues were all huge. The tour finished again in London at Ally Pally which is just enormous.
It was probably one of the coolest things I've ever done. Being on stage with Jesse as 10,000 people all sing in your direction was just so rad.
I shot photos and video on the road, usually editing the content on the bus during the long drives between gigs. You can see the live pictures here and some of the tour pictures here and here. For the rest of the videos keep and eye on Brand New's Instagram.
