Just to enjoy it as long as possible, we always say theres no better fun than being in a band with a bunch of your mates.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Supporting Dan Reed was great as he’s such a nice guy. Also playing the Stramash Festival in Stornoway was a blast as the atmosphere was electric. Road trips are always fun.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
We played a place in Edinburgh and they had to use a stand in sound guy as they’re regular dude was off somewhere. It just sounded awful.

“After All These Times” probably because it is pretty energetic and has our usual guitar hook ideas in it.

Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask? 
Just that we hope you like it because we have a gas doing it.
