Speaking to Gigwise, the band were not filled with support for their fellow headliners however, instead criticising drummer Lars Ulrich’s technical ability and saying any controversy about their appearance at the festival is because the band are “shite”.

“I can’t wait to hear that guy play the drums again – unbelievably bad,” Barry Burns of the band said. “He’s terrible.”

Meanwhile, frontman Stuart Braitwaite continued: “I just can’t wait until we go all quiet and you can hear ‘Enter Sandman’ in the background, because we’re on at the same time. I don’t really see the fuss. They’re a pretty big rock band and it’s a pretty big rock festival.”

Other artists to pass comment on this year’s Saturday night headliners at the Worthy Farm Festival include Arctic Monkeys, Mick Jagger, Kasabian and Johnny Marr.
