Blood Red Shoes' new lp is out tomorrow. You can pre-listen to it here. Definitely cut out for live, which I hope, I'll be able to check this year. On a personal note, I first met the high power duo in 2009 in a nearby long regretted festival. I've seen them four or five times since and it was just like good old friends you don't see much but can always rely on to share great moments. As a man, you can't fail falling in love with the band for obvious reasons (!) but above all, they can still be enjoyable today for their loud and snappy immediacy, always ready to amp up the fans on their relentless tours. Always appreciated this "give all you got" side. So, to celebrate this full devotion and the release of the new album, here are 2 shows that go back over their first two efforts. The first one may have been dear to them since they played back in their hometown, Brighton, for "The Great Escape" festival. Quite a close-range show for not being held on stage but right in the middle of the audience in a dark-blue intimate atmosphere, with many close-up shots. "Who wants a beer ...?"  Have also a look at 4:23 below. Not easy to stage-dive when there's no stage ! :-)
 For the second part, I wanted to dig up deep in the early period with a daylight open air show.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get my hands on any real hd stream of the time. But yet, this 2008 Melt! gig is still watchable. Kind of funny to see that the voices seem to sound maybe a bit more diffident or milder in tone but they do already know how to hold their ground on stage. Headlong first ! Steven was corn-coloured as ever at that time and Laura-Mary had a straight fringed auburn hairstyle which ... well, any cut suits her, honestly ! To go quite a way back in time, I've also added a footage from their 2007 energetic Paradiso's show with their closing song, ADHD. Nice finale with a stage invasion and a nice crowd-surfing from Steven.  Anyway, can't wait to see them back on the  road. As said before, the new songs are just rough enough to be played loud right in your ears.

Enjoy !

Cheers !
