Bruising on tour: "We mainly just mess around in service stations"

Neu Bruising on tour: “We mainly just mess around in service stations

The Leeds fuzzers offer us an insight into their recent tour with Los Campesinos! ahead of their Hello 2016 show tonight.

Tonight, Bruising play a DIY Presents ‘Hello 2016’ show at London’s The Old Blue Last, ringing in the new year alongside some of its brightest prospects. To whet your appetite, we caught up with the band to reflect on their recent tour alongside Los Campesinos - take it away, guys:

“When we first thought about taking photos for a tour diary, we all laughed, because we don’t really act like real rockstars on tour. No smashing up dressing rooms, no throwing tvs out of windows and no snorting coke off of another person - honestly, we mainly just mess around in service stations

This tour with Los Campesinos! was a lot of fun, mainly because they’re all such nice people. We did mess around at a lot of service stations and watch stupid films in the van - but also played some great shows to lovely people and danced a LOT to S Club 7. Shouts out to selfie sticks xxx”

Instore at Rough Trade West, definitely didn't block their toilet, soz.

Brudenell Social Club, home sweet home.

Valuable motorway stops, taking the scenery.

Tips for keeping warm and healthy on the road, Nutribullets and balaclavas (built into the lining of the jacket, obviously).

The only real memory from Brighton's afterparty. Feat Selfie Stick.

One thing Los Campesinos taught us is that a Selfie Stick is an integral part of any tour.
