Meanwhile, Matt Healy has said if they had won the Hyundai Mercury Prize last week that the money would’ve been spent on “endless, endless, drugs.”

In an exclusive NME interview with the band before Thursday night’s ceremony, the frontman was asked how he would spend the £25,000 prize. He replied “Just drugs. Endless, endless drugs.”

Throwing his arms around in excitement, he continued, “All of them! I don’t care. Anything that you can sort me out, I’ll have that.”
