Bon voyage, guys.

It's nearly time for the Freak / King Nun tour, so King Nun have done a quick Q&A
King Nun and Freak are heading off around the country THIS SUNDAY on the Dork Live! tour, which kicks off on 24th September in Nottingham and continues on to Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and London. It's going to be great. To celebrate, King Nun have spaffed out a few answers to some questions we harassed them with pre-Reading & Leeds.

Hey King Nun, how’ve you guys been enjoying summer so far? It feels like you’ve played a ton of festivals.
Summer's been great! It's been our first actually playing festivals, so pretty exciting, and we're about to play Reading & Leeds which is hopefully going to be our highlight.

So you’re off on tour with FREAK soon - whose idea was it to team up? Did you guys know each other beforehand?
We didn't know each other beforehand, but we've met them now, and they're great guys, so we know the tour's going to go really fast. It's a co-headline, and we are really interested to see how it pans out.

Are you well behaved on tour, or do you get up to hijinks?
The most well behaved. In bed by 10.

What’s the most embarrassing thing to have ever happened to you on tour?
We've only done the one tour so far, so I think the worst is yet to come... 

Do you do anything to prepare before going on stage, or away for tour?
We have a pre-show ritual that involves a lot of shouting and jumping about. It helps us get organised, and it's actually quite weird now going onstage if we haven't done it.

Is there a music venue you’d especially like to play in future? One that’d mean you’d have ‘made it’?
I think our 'made it' landmarks aren't venues currently - apart from one tour date in Dublin, we've never played abroad, so going to Europe or America for a tour will probably be up there. 

What do you think is the key to putting on a great live show?
We aim to connect with the audience, and give them an experience that they won't find elsewhere. We want to give everything we have to give.

Which of your songs goes down best live, do you think?
We have a song called 'Sponge' that was the b-side to our last single, but even before it was released, we were noticing lots of people were really getting into it. We were kind of surprised actually, it's a bit of a slow-burner.

What are you most looking forward to between now and the end of the year?
Lots of tours and hopefully some new music to be released - we are really excited about everything we are doing right now.

Freak and King Nun head out on the Dork Live! tour on 24th September. Catch them at:

24 Nottingham Bodega
26 Bristol Louisiana
28 Birmingham Hare & Hounds Venue 2
