They basically just came to see us off hearing some demos and said they wanted to sign us! It was the best feeling in the world! After working your ass off for 3 years and so many people trying to coat-tail you down, when someone like that takes a risk on you it feels amazing. By someone like them, I don't mean the label, I mean the people behind the label. They're some of the best people I've ever met, I feel so at home with them! I know you're supposed to hate the label and that but I genuinely love ours! Our publisher Emily has got something really sexy about her, too!
Haha, Thanks mate! Basically, our artwork was trying to represent the start of something so I said lets flood it with sperms! I was a test-tube baby (3 attempts it took) so I thought that'd be quite funny, especially when people go around wearing t-shirts with it on. So basically we had this idea of a comic book kind of rat race to the finish line (or in this case the egg). It's just a straight up educational video I assure you.
It's just a name really but if I had to say I'd say we were Bottlemen and our Tour Manager was Catfish, cause he's about 9ft 2 and his facial hair has a tramp-like fragrance to it.
Sheffield! ALWAYS SHEFFIELD! Sheffield has been like home to us. It was the first place to ever embrace this band! I'm in love with everyone there!
We karate kick Camels. Genuinely.
The Streets! I love Mike Skinner, he's a genius. The Streets.
Haha, we get in a bit of trouble for these every now and again! It's just funny! Merch Stands are so awkward, they're like lads toilets so we put stuff up like SEX - £5, EXORCISMS - £60, just to make people laugh and feel at ease! People sometimes get SO offended by that, though! AS IF WE ACTUALLY EXORCIZE DEMONS IN THE BACK OR SOMETHING! Charge someone for sex? The offer alone would be worth its weight in gold.
I gave a beautiful girl a sensual massage and whispered in her ear in a sexy baritone manner! Shortly after.......I karate kicked a naked Camel!
I haven't, no! But about 3 days ago I stole someone's Squid thinking it was an onion ring. Horrid. Tasted like battered babies finger!
The songs are all written so we've just gotta whittle them down and decide what makes the cut! I'm really excited to get into the studio, I normally hate recording cause I get so bored and cabin-feverish but this is our debut album. It's real! I'm excited to sit and work really hard on this!
