What’s probably most striking about tonight’s annual Kerrang! tour performance is the absence of side fringes and panda bear eyeliner. While outside there are a plethora of young folks trying to convince the bouncer that their older sibling’s ID is their own, the crowd inside the venue seems to be within their early to late 20s. This is the Kerrang! tour; the purest distillation of angsty misunderstood youth that a €3.50 magazine can offer. So why is the crowd from Animal Collective or TV On The Radio here?

Yes, Limp Bizkit are still a thing. And just to prove it, Mark Earley took photos of the American band at Dublin’s Olympia on Tuesday, February 11, when they headlined the 2014 installment of the Kerrang! tour. Joining the nu metal veterans on the night was Japanese Metalcore five piece Crossfaith and goblin core band Nekrogoblikon. Check out Mark’s photos from the nostalgic moshing-inducing session below.
