Eat, sleep and breathe: Sean Smith, We Were Promised Jetpacks

The bassist shares the band's tour habits

What time is breakfast?
It changes every day. Usually fairly late though. It’s just the adults that get up in time for breakfast.

Tea or coffee?

Smoking or non-smoking?

Sweet or savoury snacks?
Savoury, but Peter Q (aka drummer Darren Lackie) eats Skittles constantly.

What food do you miss when you tour?
Sorry, nothing, I love the food on tour. I love eating different stuff every day. When people say that you have to eat rubbish when you’re on tour, they are lying.

Who’s the best cook you know?
Jamie Steel.

What’s on your rider?
Cheese, ham, bread, chips and dip, fruit and veg, cider and/or beer and some rum. Sorry, nothing exciting.

Which country/city has the best food?
I like the food in New York. Big pizza slices for dinner and good bagels for breakfast.

Do you eat out a lot?

Do you drink onstage?
Yes. Usually a cider and a rum.
