Earlier this year, frontman Kelly Jones joked that they are too carnivorous to ever cover a song by The Smiths. He said: “We eat too much meat. We got meat onstage, we can’t do it, [Morrissey] won’t like it.”

The Welsh band recently earned their sixth Number One album with ‘Keep The Village Alive’ beating off competition from The Libertines and Bring Me The Horizon. The four-piece self-released the record – their ninth in total – making it the second self-released album to top the chart this year, along with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, who reached Number One in February with second album ‘Chasing Yesterday’.
