1. You played last year – tell us about your experiences at Evolution Emerging Festival? What was your biggest highlight?
Evo has been one of those mainstays in our life. just like Greggs, booze and Shearer, you can always count on Evo to deliver.
For some silly reason we were asked to headline The Tyne bar last year ahead of some truly outstanding bands. This was probably a typo on the poster, but we ran with it anyway. Thanks Generator!
