Ahead of their headlining slot on the Avalanche Stage at Download 2017, we caught up with Justin Hills and Jack Fowler, bassist and guitarist respectively of Sleeping With Sirens to talk Download, System Of A Down and the Rise Against tour that was announced just after the interview took place.

You’re at Download! Are you excited to be here?

Justin: Yes! I’m fucking so stoked to be here!

Jack: This is our first time playing and we’re very excited to be a part of the festival and I’m excited to see System Of A Down!

You just answered the next question!

Jack: Hit me with it!

Well it was who are you looking forward to seeing so you already answered Jack!

Justin: Jack’s so excited to see System Of A Down!

Jack: I am very excited! If they play Prison Song first, I am not liable for the next three and a half minutes of my life!

Justin: He’s gonna explode! He’s gonna punch himself straight in the face! I’m looking forward to going to sleep, you know I had a really long day already. I got here late, at about 1pm, slept in and then I woke up, grabbed some food and now I’m getting tired you know? So I’m excited to sleep! I’m just kidding! I’m excited to see System of A Down as well. We’ve been waiting for this to happen, everybody in the band kinda grew up on them so we’re all pretty excited.

Do you have any plans to come back over for a UK tour?

Jack: We actually do!

Justin: We announce it next week! So by the time this comes out…

Jack: When is it going out?

Sometime in the next couple of weeks, not before next week though!

Justin: So yes! We are coming back over and you can check it out on https://sleepingwithsirens.net

Jack: We aren’t headlining. We are supporting someone really fucking awesome!

It must be someone really awesome if you guys are a support band for it!

Justin: We’re really excited about that to!

Jack: Spoiler alert! When we play here with who we’re playing with, we’ll be playing Brixton Academy so it’s awesome!
