The Twilight Sad are a Scottish alternative act from Kilsyth in North Lanarkshire, which lies halfway between Glasgow and Stirling. They have now recorded three albums of vituperative and often bleak post-punk, ‘Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters’ (2007), ‘Forget the Night Ahead’ (2009) and ‘No One Can Ever Know’ (2012), which have gained them a fanatical audience.

Vocalist James Graham sings in a distinctive Caledonian accent, and while he has always refused to talk about his lyrics they are embedded with an underlying sense of violence and tragedy. The group’s fourth album, ‘Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave’, is due out in late October.

Their live shows are often similarly intense. These photographs of James Graham were taken by Darren Aston for Pennyblackmusic at the East Village Arts Club in Liverpool on July 20th.
