To the Crawlers, the connection between Snoopy and My Chemical Romance is obvious, but for the rest of us, it seems a bit hazy. In just a few weeks, the Liverpool-based band will be supporting emojis at their Warrington gig. For Holly Minto, their music was already formed, even if they had other discs to shoot at the time.
“When I was in high school, I was a musical theater kid and that band was where I first studied music and emotional music,” recounts the band’s lead vocalist. NME at The Great Escape festival in Brighton. “And I played Snoopy in the school musical. And I stood in this full outfit on one side of the stage between the explosive songs of ‘Ghosts’ by My Chemical Romance inside my all-dog outfit. That’s how they mean to me. ”
The announcement of a gig in Warrington – where half the band grew up – gave them a new challenge of finding a foothold. “As soon as we saw them playing Warrington, I said, ‘We’re charging that,'” Minto said. “We weren’t ‘lucky’ with it, we paired it and were really annoyed asking to be on top of it. In 10th grade, I will completely thrive knowing I am supporting them. “
But how do they feel about playing against a crowd of new punters who need to win? “I wanted to tell the audience and ask them that if they don’t know us, they will by the end of the movie. We’re not used to the carnival crowd as we’re still pretty new, so it’s great to get to know different types of audiences who may have never seen us and need to be convinced by our live show. ”
