HOW WAS THAT FOR YOU?

“Re­ally fun! It’s the first time we’ve done any­thing like this, where we’re not only play­ing a full record but fully re-learn­ing songs that we’ve for­got­ten how to play! Once I learn the words I’m fine, but for the guys play­ing in­stru­ments the timing and the riffs on Break­ing Point, Five Months and Frost­bite… what planet were we on when we wrote those songs? It’s re­ally great play­ing them again, though. There’s no au­topi­lot. It’s like we’ve played all the hits so many times that we know them back to front. With these, we’ve got to fo­cus, which is re­ally awe­some, be­cause it means you’re in that mo­ment of per­for­mance.”

YOU WERE 25 WHEN THE AL­BUM CAME OUT. WHAT’S IT LIKE REPLICATING THAT IN­TEN­SITY AT 35?

“To be hon­est, I feel as though we’re play­ing these songs better now than we ever have. I feel better on­stage and I feel as though my voice is better. I feel as though it’s giv­ing an en­tire new life to this record, to be hon­est. It’s a re­ally odd sen­sa­tion that I never thought we’d get from do­ing this.”

Win­ston re­ally liked to have the ther­mo­stat up high
