“It has to do with the songs we write; they require a certain energy for them to sound right,” Edkins says. “You kind of blank out when you’re up there, and when you wake up you’re covered in sweat and the equipment’s broken. And then you walk off. It’s an unconscious thing. You turn it on and go for it.”
