Tech-metal’s cerebral champions are plugging in for more UK shows
HOW MUCH DOES TECHNOLOGY RULE YOUR WORLD AS A LIVE BAND?
**James Monteith [guitar]: **“We are slaves to the machines. We’re completely dependent on technology for the show to work. Early on in our career, Amos pulled the soundcard cable out of the computer which instantly killed everything. We stood onstage looking like lemons for two minutes waiting for the computer to restart, and to make things worse, the Windows start up sound then boomed out of the PA!”
Who’d win in a nerd-off between you and Periphery?
“I have no idea! As nerds we fear confrontation. I think they have more wearers of glasses, though, so they might win on that front.”
Do you have anything special planned for the forthcoming UK tour?
“It’ll be an all-encompassing audio-visual experience of power and atmosphere that will transcend your soul into the fourth dimension, followed by our own personal tour of the local kebab shops.”
