Live: Godsized at Hard Rock Hell, Wales

Hello there! I’ve just returned from an action packed adventure with Godsized! They were booked to play the Hard Rock Hell festival in Glynwedd, Wales. A great event that is now in their eighth year! An awful lot of ‘van time’ – overall I think it was a total of 16 hours actually on the road, there and back to South London – but there was a good vibe and many pit stops for food. These guys are like bottomless pits! And I’ve never attended an after show party that started at 3am before. Godsized played an hour long set, and ended with a cover of Black Sabbath’s ‘War Pigs’. Considering they went on stage at 1.10am, they were full of energy and the crowd loved them. Here’s a small selection of the live pics. Check out the Godsized Facebook Page for more. I also shot some behind the scenes pics which might make an appearance somewhere soon. Mx

New Godsized Promos

Godsized recruited a new guitarist back in September, and I was called in to do some promo shots at their rehearsal space in South London. Here’s a few sample images The pictures feature on their Social Media pages and also on their newly launched Official Website. One of the images from this shoot has been used to create a poster for a giveaway competition on their Facebook Page. I do have many out-takes from the number of shoots i’ve done with the guys over the years, one day I will have to share them! Mx

Godsized – Flight & Survive

Godsized, like most bands, have their fair share of good and bad things that happen. Recently they were invited to play for the US Troops at RAF Lakenheath. This was definitely one of those good things! Not only did the guys get to entertain a great crowd, but also have a delicious American dinner AND a tour of the F15 aircraft. A real honour! Due to the restricted nature of military aircraft, we were only allowed small cameras and phones in to take pictures. I couldn’t be pedantic about my iPhone photos – not with an opportunity like this to share with you all, so they aren’t the best quality. Gav sits in the Pilots seat & Glen was the only one to brave the internal steps to the aircraft. Chuck, Aaron & J. Scott gave us the tour and talked about different scenarios that they face in the air force, the missiles and bombs that were on display in the hangar and parts of the aircraft. Beautiful isn’t it?! Kav summed the tour up perfectly. It was so serene and still while we were there – with just the low buzzing of the lights in the hangar, but then […]

Godsized – London Revelation

Godsized are on tour with My Ruin around the UK at the moment for the Southern Revelation Tour. I went along to their London date to do some promos and snap some live pics. Around last year I was at the Scala for a different show and spotted a really cool location for a photo shoot. So while the other bands were sound checking, I set up in a stair well with really huge windows on a curved wall, along with a mosaic tiled floor. Really unusual. Here’s one of the final shots (click to view larger) Godsized kicked serious ass live. It was a very different crowd as My Ruin have a particular kind of following, but the guys went down really well. Here’s a few live pics They have just over a week left on the tour. Check here for a list of the remaining dates and also their up-and-coming dates including their Mini Tour of Europe in April. Also, they have a Special Limited Edition Tour T-Shirt – only available while they’re on the road. It has all the show dates on the back.
