All hyped up after the release of The Vamps' latest single with Matoma, All Night, we sneak in a quick chat with the lads during their stopover in Singapore
What is your favourite word? James McVey: Chocolate. Brad Simpson: Carnivorous. Connor Ball: Pelican. Tristan Evans: Moist. What is your least favorite word? James McVey: Maybe like, alarm. Brad Simpson: Yeah I'm going to say moist as well. Connor Ball: Vulgar. Tristan Evans: Bedtime. I hate bedtime.
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? James McVey: Emotionally, bulldogs. Brad Simpson: Creatively... I would say relationships, and love...and big emotional tunes. Connor Ball: Travelling is good for inspiration, for your spirit and your aura. Tristan Evans: iTunes.
What turns you off? James McVey: I don't like the smell of cheese. Brad Simpson: Smelly feet. Connor Ball: And breath as well. Tristan Evans: Cheese... Oh breath as well!
What is your favorite curse word? James McVey: My favourite, I think, is, "oh my gosh". "Bellend" is a good one. It's not that offensive. Brad Simpson: Ooh, we couldn't say.... Bugger. Connor Ball: But we don't call people bellend. We don't use curse words. Tristan Evans: You know if you have asparagus? That's the mother to the asparagus. A bellend doesn't look very nice, and it smells horrible. It's like a disgusting plant.
What sound or noise do you love? James McVey: I like birds singing when it's a summer morning and you can hear them outside. When you're sleeping and the rain...aww. Connor Ball: A hairdryer is really nice. When you're asleep and your mom's drying her hair...it's good. Tristan Evans: The sound of the alarm! Woop Woop! (chants) The sound of the alarm! The alarm is horrible.
What sound or noise do you hate? James McVey: Sirens, especially. Brad Simpson: I don't like when buses break (screeches). That's annoying. Tristan Evans: Fire alarms, sirens, and really high-pitched people.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? James McVey: Historian. Brad Simpson: The guy that tests the Go Ape treetop climbing and zip wires. Connor Ball: A spaceman that looks into space. Tristan Evans: Brain surgeon. I like brains.
What profession would you not like to do? James McVey: Working in a sewer — you know the people who have to go down the manholes.... It's good that they do it, but it smells so bad! Brad Simpson: Working as a butcher. That's hard seeing your meat beforehand. Or a roller-coaster tester. Tristan Evans: Or fishmonger.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? James McVey: "It'll be great if you played All Night." Brad Simpson: Just a bottle of Prosecco. Connor Ball: Just a pat on the back, "well done". Tristan Evans: A nice welcome would be good. Dom Perignon champagne, on ice. And, you know what, egg royale, without sauce.
