Mallory Knox – Homecoming Tour @ Roundhouse

It’s been a mere few month since I last saw Mallory Knox live at the ‘Rock Am Ring Festival and I couldn’t have waited any longer to catch them live again.

The five some that had embarked on their UK Homecoming tour in late September performed and their final show at London’s iconic Roundhouse on Friday 9th October 2015.

Kentish Town was ready for a night of cleverly handmade rock music and the five lads from Mallory Knox were more than happy to serve the hungry crowds that had gathered at the Camden venue.

At roughly 9:15pm the band came on stage and kicked off their loud and energetic set with the banger ‘Shout At The Moon’.

The room was buzzing and within seconds mosh pits had started, people climbing on shoulders and general chaos ensued. Front man Mickey had the crowd in the palm of his hands right from the start, encouraging them to go crazy while simultaneously singing his heart out.

Mallory Knox were clearly up for a well-remembered last night of their tour and put all their saved power to good use by smashing out the heartfelt beauty that is ‘Getaway’ and the brilliant ‘Dying to Survive’ from their recent album ‘Asymmetry’.

The crowd went absolutely bonkers and songs like ‘ Dying To Survive ‘ and ‘Hello’ where not making it any better. Without doubt the five lads were killing it!

Next up Mickey asked the crowd if they have ever been in love and as only a few confessed he gave a little speech about ‘Love’ and it various forms, love for the fans, love for the band, love for the family and love for the friends.

After the crowd collectively agreed that there is a lot of love in the room, Mallory Knox launched into the wonderful ‘Heart & Desire’, which saw friends hugging and couples cuddling up closer to their loved ones.

Changing the tempo once again the energetic set continued with the loud and ever so brilliant ‘Ghost In The Mirror’ that picked the crowd right up and brought them back on their feet again.

One of my personal favourites ‘Beggars’ was performed next, and hell yeah, this song is just wicked song that makes you want to move and throw yourself into a circle pit while shouting along to the perfectly crafted lyrics.

The pandemonium continued throughout ‘Death Rattle’ that caused several Wall Of Deaths.

Mallory Knox just know how to keep the fans on the edge as they started the encore with ‘She Took Him to The Lake’. Quite simply an epic masterpiece. The lads delivered a flawless live rendition that surely sent chills down some punters spine.

How to commence after such an epic performance? By upping the ante, once again. A Mallory Knox gig wouldn’t be the same without a massive sing along to probably THE most iconic Mallory Knox song ‘Oceans’.

Such a brilliant song that has marked a milestone in the bands life and the fans thanked them by singing along beautifully being word perfect!

However all great gigs have – unfortunately – come to an end and the Roundhouse saw Mallory Knox rocking the stage one last time while singing their hearts out to ‘Lighthouse’.

Needless to say the entire venue had their phones, lighters or any other device that would shine a light out to instantly turn the Roundhouse into a stunning sea of lights.

This must have been an amazing view from the stage. The grand finale had the whole room singing together one last time and Mallory Knox went off stage with massive smiles plastered on their faces.

Surely there are worse ways to finish a tour.
