The Lumineers: 'It's Psychotic to do That Many Shows'

Most musicians dream of having a hit record, but for American folk rock band The Lumineers it proved to be a double-edged sword. While the song 'Ho Hey' took them all over the world, the band also fell into a vicious cycle of non-stop touring that almost cost them their careers. With their sophomore album Cleopatra topping both the UK and US album charts the band is trying to avoid some of the mistakes they've made in the past. "I just missed writing and being home, but I felt so conflicted because this was supposedly what I wanted to do all my life. So I was a man living in fear of the real world."
