Previously, frontman Simon Neil revealed that he was in a “terrible headspace” during the early process of making the band’s new album. Speaking to NME, Neil discussed his mental health and reveals that touring around the band’s last album ‘Opposites’ saw him struggling.
Following a UK headline tour in April 2013, the band called off a series of shows, citing the frontman’s “serious respiratory problem”.
“I had a bit of a ‘do’,” Neil says now. “This is going to turn into a right downer interview, but before that our very first tour manager died of leukaemia; Storm [Thorgerson, designer of their artwork] died; my gran died; my best friend’s brother died on Christmas Day… It felt like when things couldn’t get any worse, they just kept getting worse.”
