The very weekend after releasing new album Every Open Eye, CHVRCHES brought the tunes to the 2015 Landmark Music Festival in Washington D.C., a place frontwoman Lauren Mayberry tells Fuse she was excited to play again. “It’s really a live music town,” she said when chatting with Fuse during the fest. “It’s great to play the new songs live and shake things up a bit,” Iain Cook added.
The Scottish trio was quick to point out that part of the "good fun" of playing festivals is the memorable fan reactions to their music. Martin Doherty remembers “some guy fully in a wheelchair with a broken leg crowd surfing,” at one festival gig. “It’s pretty special. Those things stick in the mind for sure. We see you guys."
