Review of our recent gig in Aberdeen

"Found on the Floor were the tour act for the evening from Ireland. Brilliant set, great energy, great tunes. A self-described Metal / Punk Hybrid. They sound like UK82 meets the apocalypse in an all out fight to the death. Props to their drummer who was brilliant on the night. Really on form with a high pulsating energy pounding into the skins."
