In this week’s The Cover interview, frontman Bret Kaser discusses the four-piece’s wild live show, which received a five-star review from NME late last year. “It is 100% like a fitness and conditioning challenge. Before our tour, I went through six weeks of vocal and diaphragmatic breathing coaching. We all went through a really conscious effort.
“It’s masochistic, but I like feeling completely emptied at the end of a night – that feeling where you’re constantly trying to push yourself to be more entertaining and more captivating.”
