On the road with Tom Barnes
Last year photographer Tom Barnes was commissioned by Rock Sound Magazine to photograph the band Of Mice & Men in Montreal and Toronto for a cover feature. Enjoy a selection of Tom’s shots and a few comments from him on each from the tour below…
Ah the bird, been a while since someone flipped it at me - Austin was mid set at this point and they’d just had a technical trouble - not the best time for me to get too friendly with my lens!
Alan getting the crowd going, when everyone pumps their arms at the same time it’s like waves.

The view from the middle of the venue, this is about 1/5th of the crowd!
Phil alleviating the boredom of tour by working out - there’s normally a lot of sitting around so bands carry gym gear so they can keep fit.
