A spokesman for Brixton Academy added: “This show is a strictly name on ticket event. The full name of the lead booker will be printed on each ticket and they must be present and attending with photo ID in order to gain entry. Strict two ticket limit per person.”

Meanwhile, Serge Pizzorno recently clarified controversial comments about new bands not being able to step up to headline festivals.

“This is the problem with quotes. Someone else’s interpretation of something is quite a different thing”, he told NME backstage at Mad Cool Festival 2018 ahead of their blistering headline set. “One thing I regret is not having Twitter, because I could come out and say ‘That’s bullshit, I never said that.’

“The question was ‘why are there no bands coming through? Why are there no headliners?’ To headline a festival, I’d say you need two big albums, three if you’re lucky.”

He continued: “So you’ve got bands that are capable with maybe one debut album and then the second doesn’t follow up as well. So then you get the third and fourth. Time will tell if that happens but that’s all it is. You can’t go on there with one big single, that’s not how it works.”
