Jacob Graham reveals what's really going on backstage
The Drums‘ guitarist Jacob Graham has said that his band have been hanging out with The Maccabees on the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour 2010, and revealed he has bonded with frontman Orlando Weeks over their mutual love of graphic design.
“We’ve been hanging out with The Maccabees, and that’s been pretty cool,” Graham explained. “Orlando does a lot of graphic design and I do most of the design for The Drums‘ artwork – and also for my label Holiday Records – so it’s actually been really nice to hang out with him and chat about that stuff a little bit.”
