Mallory Knox vs the afterLIVE Grab Bag

It’s been an emotional rollercoaster of a year for Mallory Knox but the now-quartet are confident that there’s plenty to look forward to in the future. With a nerve-wracking but incredible UK tour under their belts and a handful of summer festival slots fast approaching it’s safe to say Mallory Knox’s reinvention is going swimmingly.
