Photos: Cancer Bats @ Leeds Festival – 25 August 2012

Cancer Bats at Leeds Festival 2012 by Gobinder Jhitta

Cancer Bats might have missed their chance to pop their Main Stage cherry at Download Festival 2012 (cheers for that, British weather), but Leeds Festival 2012 was a different story. In front of the joint-biggest crowd of their career (tied with Leeds’ sister-festival, Reading, of course), Liam Cormier and co. smashed it. Lucky for us, our man Gobinder Jhitta was on hand to document their victory with his camera – and he did so from onstage.

We’ve got another gallery of Leeds Festival 2012 photos from Gobinder still to come later this weekend, but these Cancer Bats snaps are something special, so they’re getting preferential treatment.
