Carter speaks with the band on a multitude of things, including the evolution of their sound and where they stand now. You can read an excerpt of dialogue from frontman Oli Sykes below, and listen to the entire show here.

“It wasn't intentional to become an A-list radio band, it was just the music we like. We like pop music; we like catchy songs, but we also like heavy songs. None of it feels forced, none of it feels like we're selling out. It's real, and it's good. It's undeniably good, and I think that's why people from the scene still respect us and new people are getting into it. I think it’s because it doesn’t feel like something we’re doing for any other reason than because we love it.”
