A photo blog – Hard Believer tour 2014 3rd December 2014

This September of 2014 our Hard Believer tour started in Philadelphia, finally finishing three months later in London, all accompanied by our opening act Douglas Dare and Fabian Prynn. We took some photos along the way of things we thought were interesting, or funny, or pretty, or weird… sometimes all four… so, in no particular order, here we go…
