HOW WOULD YOU SUM UP YOUR YEAR SO FAR?

HENRY COX (VO­CALS): “It’s been re­ally non-stop! I think it’s prob­a­bly been the first full year where we’ve been re­lent­lessly busy with­out a break.we’ve got so much done, so it’s def­i­nitely been the best year in the band’s life so far.”

WHAT’S THE BIG­GEST LES­SON YOU’VE LEARNED?

“I think it’s been the case that if you play and ex­ist with the same peo­ple for a whole year, you just learn how to be a bet­ter band; to be­come more of a ‘unit’.”

HOW DO YOU FEEL TO BE PLAY­ING R&L?

“We’re buzzing! We grew up with Read­ing & Leeds. I bailed on get­ting my GCSE re­sults when I was 15 to go to Leeds! I’ve been four or five times over the years.”

WHAT ARE YOUR EN­DUR­ING ME­MORIES OF GO­ING THERE?

“Oh man – there are so many! Deftones, blink-182,arc­tic Mon­keys.the first time I heard of twenty one pilots was at Read­ing & Leeds.years ago I was walk­ing past this tiny lit­tle tent and saw these two fel­las jump­ing around with a pi­ano and thought,‘this looks in­ter­est­ing!’ I didn’t hear of them again for two years, and all of a sud­den they’re the big­gest stars in the world!”

IF YOU COULD COL­LAB­O­RATE WITH ANY ACT ON THE BILL, WHO WOULD YOU PICK?

“I’d get Liam Gal­lagher on a track! He can sing and I’ll play the tam­bourine.” THE PIT / THE LOCK up; R: FRI­DAY, 6:55pm; L: SATUR­DAY, 6:55pm
