It’s been pretty rad, we’ve recently gotten home from spending all summer on Warped tour and now we’re just relaxing before we come over to play Reading and Leeds.
We caught you guys earlier in the year on the Kerrang Tour across the UK, how was that?
It was pretty awesome. It was a cool, diverse lineup and we got to hangout with our friends in Bury Tomorrow and make some new friends in Don Broco, We Are The In-Crowd and Young Guns!
You guys are known for an energetic show, how do the UK crowds compare to those back home?
They’re awesome! Definitely great in the US, as well. Just different. Crowds in the UK definitely are more into singing loudly and getting crazy. Crowds in the US definitely mosh way harder and love stage dives. We love playing both a ton.
Reading and Leeds Festival is around the corner, what does it mean to you to be a part of such an iconic UK festival?
It’s pretty unreal to us. We’re stoked to play, but we’re even more stoked that we get to watch Metallica haha.
You’re playing The Pit / Lock Up Stage, do you guys prefer playing smaller more intimate stages at festivals?
Absolutely, it makes it feel like a more natural show for us while still having that festival atmosphere and size.
Maybe we’ll throw a curveball or two in there…
What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen at a festival?
I watched Tyler Joseph from Twenty One Pilots climb a like 50-foot scaffold. The entire time I thought he was going to fall or jump off and I was terrified because those guys are friends of ours.
Who are you looking forward to seeing over the R&L weekend?
If you could pick three headliners for the ultimate Reading & Leeds Festival line up [excluding yourselves!] who would they be and why?
Metallica is definitely one of them. I would also say Rage Against the Machine and a reformed NWA would be awesome.
Finally, what are your plans for the end of 2015?
We come home, do a tour with Atreyu and then another with Slipknot and that’s all for us for awhile!
