Grizzly Bear frontman Ed Droste is none too pleased with the band’s English fans. He called out the crowd in Newcastle after being disappointed by the low-key response to the band’s show last night. Via NME:
Taking to his personal Twitter to air his grievenances, lead singer Ed Droste said: “FYI: we like it when people cheer between songs, during songs, yell shit, whatever. Please don’t be overly attentive for us. Thnx”. A tweet from the band’s account then asked: “Why does our fan-base skew so much older in Europe than the US? So random. Good 10–15 year age difference”.
The fans are actually the exact same age, guys. People in northern England and Scotland just age faster than Americans. It’s a combination of alcohol, bad diet and never, ever seeing the sun.
