9 Things We Learned About Fearless Vampire Killers From Their Takedown Instagram Takeover

On Saturday, that Fearless Vampire Killers lot were busy manning their own stage at Southampton's Takedown Festival, and they had access to our Instagram account for the whole event. Here's what we learned. 

1. They're no strangers to the turtleneck. 

We wonder if there's a chain under there too...

2. They're actually all about peace and love. 

Huge respect to the Mallory Knox boys for representing some sweet, sweet bands in the merch department, too.

3. Nothing phases them while doing press, not even the two finger salute.

This just makes us want to know what would phase them. *Ponders ways to throw FVK's concentration*

4. Everyone they know seems to be a big fan of flipping off.

Wait, was Mike Duce the infamous flipper of picture 3?

 5. Brighton boys Black Peaks make FVK extremely smiley. 


BLACK PEAKS! Thank us later ;; #fvktakeover #fvk #fearlessvampirekillers #Rocksound

Don't they all seem like lovely chaps?

6. FVK always stick around and support the other bands that play.

7. The guys can make any picture look badass, even one with urinals in the background.

Shane... You alright mate?

 8. Kier also believed the lyrics to System Of A Down's 'B.Y.O.B' was "Why do they always send the porn?". Sorry, Kier. It's 'poor'. We're dissapointed too. 


Why do they always send the porn? #fvktakeover #fvk #fearlessvampirekillers #Rocksound

We're still gonna sing "porn". 

If you reckon Fearless Vampire Killers could be just as much fun on stage as they are on Instagram and you're about in May, they're heading out on their biggest ever headline tour. Go show 'em some support.
