Dual-headliner tours are always a weird one. No matter what fancy-pants arrangements the bands come to, no matter if they have a stricty-enforced on-off switch for who plays last every night, naturally one band rises above the other. And so it goes with Killswitch Engage and Trivium, who are currently enacting this age-old conflict at venues up and down the length of the UK. Our snapper in the North, Gary Wolstenholme, was on hand in Manchester to shoot both bands when they brought that unspoken conflict to the O2 Academy.
(Killswitch Engage won. FYI. BTW. OTHER ACCRONYMS)

There are still a handful of dates left on this tour before Killswitch Engage and Trivium call time on this particular UK jaunt – at Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham and Southampton to be exact. If Gary’s photos have got you excited about these shows, you’ve still got time to go and buy yourself a ticket.
