Hertfordshire rock band Lower Than Atlantis perform their 2011 single 'Deadliest Catch' at an intimate show in Nottingham. The track is taken from their second album 'World Record' released in the same year on A Wolf at Your Door Records.
In the footage from the gig, the singer can be heard thanking the crowd for being 'f***ing quality' and announcing the track as their last song of the night. The band appear to be playing without a stage, level with their bustling fans who are clearly having an immense time rocking out to the punk-vibe beats. At one point, the singer allows a couple of excited members of the audience to sing along into microphone and ends the set by crowd surfing around the room while trying, initially, to continue strumming on his guitar. The song is headbang-worthy mix of raw vocals, melodic guitar riffs and an invasive bassline.
Lower Than Atlantis performed the show as part of the 2013 Dr. Martens #StandForSomething Tour and frontman Mike Duce didn't hesitate about what he stood for. 'Be yourself', he said. 'I'd rather have people hate me for who I am, instead of pretending to be someone else. I always say on stage that if four normal idiots that came from nothing can do what we're doing, then anyone can do it.'
