thread for legitimately good band promo photos

Message Bookmarked

We have lots of threads for clowning on band promo photos (and I love them all) but I'd like to see some that are truly inventive, cool, interesting, etc. This is actually a pretty difficult thing to accomplish, I think.

I'll go first: I've never liked Vetiver's music, but I always thought this was a relatively good promo photo:

it seems like looking kind of dumb and just completely owning it is a good way to take a good band photo

been long looking for a better version of this picture. i think it's the only one from Belfast 77 that is in colour.

godspeed you! black emperor, also photographed by Yannick Grandmont as per the aids wolf photo above

There was a much older version of this photo from the 90's that I was actually thinking of, but this was the first that popped up now, from 2010.
