Frontman Mike Kerr said: “The work and the schedule was insane, but there really wasn’t a low moment. We thought, ‘This doesn’t happen to any band ever, so let’s just enjoy it.’ If it ends tomorrow, at least we can look back on it and be like, ‘Well, we took everything we could have possibly squeezed out of this’.”

“We didn’t get any sleep,” Kerr added. “We all ended up ill and 
we all got hospitalised twice. Our sound guy lost a testicle… What I will say is that he had it surgically removed and that night mixed the show. Drugged out. And 
I don’t think it ever sounded so good.”
