(VO­CALS/GUI­TAR) That was pretty in­tense. How was it for you? “It was a rocker – a to­tal banger, man. It was fun!” Has this been a mem­o­rable Euro­pean tour? “It’s been crazy – it’s been phe­nom­e­nal. We’ve done damn-near 50 shows, al­most ev­ery one of them has been sold out, and it’s been fuck­ing in­cred­i­ble, man. There was so much trash talk­ing about the record [Cathar­sis], and so to come out here and have such a suc­cess­ful tour feels re­ally good.” The al­bum may have di­vided opinion, but the songs from Cathar­sis seemed to fit re­ally well into the set tonight… “Yeah, it’s been awe­some. So the take-away from that is: ev­ery­thing you read on the in­ter­net is wrong!” Fa­mously, Ma­chine Head have stopped play­ing at fes­ti­vals. So, how are you go­ing to be spend­ing your sum­mer? “We’re go­ing to be tak­ing a few weeks off, then go­ing to Ja­pan, then New Zealand and Australia, then we’ll take our first proper break since the record dropped in Jan­uary. After that, we’ll have an­other U.S. tour, then South Amer­ica, some Euro­pean dates, an­other U.S. tour, and we’ll be back with you next fall. You won’t for­get us, right?”
