Hell Is For Heroes – 2000 Trees

In honour of the annual 2000 Trees Festival, we sat down with a selection of bands playing in order to grill them about the festival, and much, much more.

Next up were Hell Is For Heroes!

You’re playing at 2000 Trees this year – are you excited about that?

Super excited. The line-up is great and it feels like the perfect festival for us to play.

How does a festival show differ from a normal gig for you; and which do you prefer?

Both have their merits. We probably are better suited to normal gigs, indoors, dark … but playing the tent at 2000 Trees seems to be the best of both worlds.

Have you been to 2000 Trees Festival before? What other acts are you looking forward to seeing; and who would you recommend our readers check out?

Some of us have been before, not all of us have though. I’m looking forward to catching as many as acts as possible, and soaking up the whole atmosphere.

Are you playing at any other festivals this year? If so, which ones? And what are your favourite festivals to go to or play at?

After 2000 Trees we have no shows lined up of any kind; we played Download this year which was cool. We have played quite a lot of festivals [back in the day]; anything in France was always prey wild for us, and doing the big ones in Germany – Rock am Ring and Rock in Park felt like something on the bucket list of any rock band who grew up watching MTV when were kids.

Are you touring alongside the festival? If so, where and when are you playing?

Nope, nothing lined up after this. Which is why it’s got to be special!

Are you releasing new music soon? If so, what can you tell us about it?

We have been working on ideas, and will carry on doing that after 2000 trees. If it sounds good we’ll share it.

What would you say to recommend people to come and see you perform live; and what can people expect from your show at 2000 Trees?

If you’ve heard of us, then you know that we put everything into our shows. If you haven’t heard of us, come along and crowd watch. Having thousands of people singing the same song gives you goosebumps no matter what.

Any last words for your fans?

Thanks for caring, see you down the front xx
