Speaking in an NME.COM video interview you can watch below, the US band said they were so blown away by their first visit to Worthy Farm that they wanted to get in touch with their inner hippie.
“It seems quite beautiful. I’d really just like to get naked and run off somewhere,” declared bassist Jeremy ‘Jerm’ Reynolds.
He added: “I think it’s by far the most famous festival in the world. The most well-known.
“We were talking on the way over here and saying, ‘Well, isn’t it the biggest festival in the world?’ and someone said, ‘Oh no, it’s not the biggest festival in the world because in Brazil they have half a million people at their heavy metal festivals there…’
“So, what we came up with was it’s [got] the best bands in the world, year after year!”
