HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?
After breaking down in our car we ended sleeping in it after a night out and was picked up by the AA in the morning on Portobello Road market happening in full swing, completely wrecked with empty cans of beer and fried chicken bones everywhere. Ad said to Alex we are like Adrenaline Animals Ad starting the name of Of Adrenaline and ending with animal Al Alex
WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST GIG AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE?
So Ad and Alex’s first gig was at the famous whisky a go go on holiday in LA we decided to get a session drummer for that gig and turned up at the venue asking if we could play two days later we had a call back saying they had a slot for us so we smashed the gig there. We booked in 10 gigs on our return in London with a session drummer still but obviously we were looking for a full time member. We met Mark just before we were about to do the tour with this session drummer but we sent Mark the set list and the first rehearsal was on Saturday and we played our first gig with him on the Tuesday at The Monarch in Camden. Mark then played the full tour and we formed Adrenaline Animals properly as a 3 piece !
WHEN WAS YOUR LAST DAY OFF AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT?
Our first day off as a band is today and we are currently in a van driving to Sheffield to shoot 2 music videos whilst writing this. They’re called Spend All Your Money and Sailed Away Sailing (S.A.S)
WHAT IS SOMETHING - APART FROM YOUR PHONE OR WALLET - THAT HAS TO BE IN YOUR VICINITY AT ALL TIMES?
Ad : beer
Alex : keys
Mark : hat
WHICH SONG BY ANOTHER ARTIST DO YOU WISH YOU'D WRITTEN?
Ad : fuck forever by Babyshambles
Alex : live forever by Oasis

WHAT'S BEEN THE MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?
We played a gig in Munich, Germany over the summer and a German fan approached us outside the venue and she had the Adrenaline Animals logo tattoo’d onto her arm. What a gig that was.
