What informs your music?
The world we live in, industry we play in. It’s part anecdotal, part fictional. It’s hard not to be inspired by your surroundings. 

How have you evolved as a band over the years?
It’s a common phrase but I believe we’ve matured, we’ve become comfortable in our own skin and the pocket of the metal scene that we are striving to fill.

What are you up to at the moment artistically?
At the moment in time we are gearing up for tour, it’s essentially action all stations when it’s the weeks before tour. Rehearsals, logistical planning all the stuff that makes the shows go ahead. We are also always looking at what writing we have to do next.

What’s on your rider?
Normal stuff really, vegetarian stuff for us veggies, sandwich making things. And quite a bit of fluids including alcohol.

Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.
We get a lot of surreal moments, I think my most was stepping out at Download festival in front of 40,000+ people. That was a pinch me kind of moment and I don’t think it will ever leave.

What song do you wish you’d written?
Anything on Slipknot IOWA.

What’s your worst lyric?
I used to have a tendency of putting the word ‘baby’ into songs – this has been phased out thank god.
