BIFFY Clyro might be avid football fans but frontman Simon Neil claims they aren't allowed to play the beautiful game any more.
The lads take to the stage for Glasgow Summer Sessions this Saturday and Simon revealed: "We don't play a lot of sports. We're denied playing sports in case we hurt our hands or our fingers. We love playing football but can't really do that in case we stave our fingers and then there's no show so don't ever join a rock band. It's really boring."
The band who can't wait to play Bellahouston Park also say they give so much on stage they've almost collapsed and suffer from great lows when they finish.
Ben said: "Normally we feel great coming off stage then you feel terrible for about half an hour cause all that adrenalin leaves your system and there's no longer people screaming mad being happy in front of you and you think what am I doing with my life? It's sad but it's true and slowly you get over that and we all sit together and have a good time."
Simon added: "Its like PGSD - post gig stress disorder. We're very much in the moment and there are times when you feel you could just collapse on stage it's so emotive and intimate and the music matters so much to us. It really courses through the whole body. The last few gigs I've been in a heap in the back and the boys have had to carry me because I've just been so out of breath and so spent."
Glasgow Summer Sessions also play host to Noel Gallagher this Friday and they want you to feel as safe as a High Flying Bird when you attend the event. To make sure everything goes to plan they've enlisted the help of Sound Boab - a new event information mascot.
Sound Boab wants to ensure that both he and everyone else who will be there is aware of all key information, stays safe and is respectful of the neighbours. Essentially, he’ll be encouraging everyone to be sound. Like him.
Ahead of this week's gigs Glasgow Summer Sessions, Sound Boab will be on hand to offer his fellow gig-goers information and advice on things like travel, being prepared and looking after yourself and others at the gigs.
Here's the first of his tips on this poster.
