YMA6/Attack! Attack!/Out Of Sight show...

On Tuesday night, we hit the HMV Forum in London for the Kerrang Week Of Rock show featuring Out Of Sight, Attack! Attack!, and headliners You Me At Six. Fun was had by all, as was much free beer - and as you can see from the pic, Criminal Damage was repping hard on the jumbo screens at the side of the stage.
