The View frontman Kyle Falconer suffers panic attacks before gigs.

The Scottish singer reveals he is trying to promote a "calmer" atmosphere backstage ahead of the band's shows in a bid to help him keep his anxiety under control.

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "They're (the panic attacks) a big deal, and it's from adrenaline, not nerves. I need to try to be less hyper, but our dressing room is always mobbed before gigs. We are getting a bit calmer. I do occasionally get some sleep now.

"It's not just me who suffers from high adrenaline. I've spoken to a lot of singers in other bands who go through the same thing."
