ME at Tramlines
Oz rockers ME stepped onto our fair shores for Tramlines last Saturday. Katie Memmott and Megan Habberfield cornered them in a dark alley for a tradition Yorkshire welcome....just kidding!
You just played Leadmill, how exciting was that?!
Luke: Exciting! You nailed it, it was awesome. Had a nice crowd too. Second time we’ve played in Sheffield, the first time we played at the Xcerts, at Bowery.
You posted on your Facebook you’re thinking about doing some headline shows and wanted your fans to pick the cities, how’s that going?
L: We’ve had some strange responses to that question, but yes at the end of this year maybe September/October we’ll start looking at doing a smallish headlining tour. We’d love to come back to Sheffield!
You’ve been near constantly touring since last year, with Evanescence, Panic At The Disco, Arcane Roots and King Charles to name but a few, you’ve not stopped!
L: It seems that way to us too!
Damien: We don’t mind touring hard; we’re not the only band doing it.
L: We recorded the album before we started touring.
What can you tell us about the album? Your EP, Another Story High was released recently...
L: That was a teaser in the way that it shows a stroke of what you might expect on the album. There’s a lot going on. There will be a couple of tracks from the EP that will be on the album but there’s a lotta new stuff that we haven’t even played live. We’ve played a lot of thirty minute sets; that seems to be our life this year. That’s why I’m looking forward to doing the headline shows.
D: We might get to play 40 or 50 minutes! (laughs)
You are going back to Oz though to play Big Day Out!
D: We are!
L: That’s the end of January, if you don’t know about it; it’s kind of like the Glastonbury of Australia. About 5 cities, and forty or fifty thousand people each date.
D: If anyone’s going to Australia, you should check it out!
