Thanks for taking the time to have a quick chat. 2018 Is going to be quite an eventful year for you guys with the world tour coming up and your latest album coming out soon. Which places are you most excited to visit and play at during your tour? Obviously South Africa, but we are also very excited to visit Australia and New Zealand. We have wanted to play all three of these countries for a very long time and we are very stoked to finally get the opportunity You have quite a few shows lined up for your world tour. What do you enjoy most about touring and performing? Performing is always the best part. we do enjoy sightseeing and getting to visit new places, but the whole reason we are there is to perform and we love it. It’ll be your first time visiting South Africa and you’ll be here for almost two weeks. Are you planning on doing a little sightseeing while you’re here? We’re are hoping so! I’m sure they’ll take us to all the best spots and we cannot wait! What can fans expect from your shows in South Africa? Will you play some of your older songs as well as songs from your upcoming album? We plan on mixing up a little of everything The first two singles from your self-titled album, “Incredible” and “Five Years”, have recently been released and they both sound very unique from one another. How would you describe the style and genres of the rest of the album? There are similarities to each song, but most of them have their own unique flare to them just as “five years” was crazy heavy and “incredible” is almost polar opposite with more pop punk vibes. You did an Ed Sheeran cover last year, which was done really well. Why did you choose that song to cover? Do you listen to pop music, or is it more like a guilty pleasure? We actually really enjoy pop music haha You’ve toured with a couple of great bands such as Sleeping with Sirens and Asking Alexandria. Which band was your favourite to play a gig with? They were both very fun. The sleeping with sirens tour was a club tour so we were naround them a little more where asking was more arena in europe/uk. both bands were very kind and the shows were insane! Thanks for your time! Be sure to book your tickets today to see Secrets live!
