Scottish singer KYLE FALCONER is proud of The View's upcoming album - because it marks the first time the band has recorded sober.
The group has been busy working on Bread and Circuses, due for release later this year (Mar11), and Falconer reveals they shunned booze after a producer expressed concerns about their drunken performances.
He tells NME.com, "He wanted us straight-laced. On the first two days of recording we ended up steaming (drunk), but he said it wasn't working like that.
"We'd maybe go for a couple of pints at teatime, but there'd be no late-night parties. We'd never recorded sober before. Sometimes you think something's amazing because you're p**sed and then you wake up the next morning and can't bear to listen to it. But this time we're right on the ball."
