Fearless Vampire Killers are Keir Kemp, Drew Woolnough, Cyrus Barrone, Laurence Beveridge  and Luke Illingworth.

We have seen FVKs in Leicester before. Arts in Leicester reviewed their performance at the Soundhouse in 2012.

We also saw them at The Strawberry Fields festival in 2011. Our first encounter with them was in April 2009 when we saw them in London.

It was really good to see FVKs supporting a band as big as Madina Lake on the main stage of the O2 here in Leicester.
