Klaxons are stronger as a band now they are "sober".

The British band - whose second album 'Surfing The Void' is set for release next month - admit their new-found sobriety has had a "massive" impact on the way they perform live.

Bassist Jamie Reynolds explained: "We're kind of stronger and we're sober - I think the sobriety thing's got a massive thing to do with it.

"We're actually figured out that we can play these songs and we're going on stage sober and playing them to their best, playing into the songs, where as before we were just a train wreck. Now we're playing as a strong unit."

The 'Golden Skans' hitmakers - who won the 2007 Mercury Prize for their debut album 'Myths of the Near Future' - also have a collection of songs which didn't make it onto the upcoming LP which are a departure in sound from their usual tracks.

Jamie continued to music website Gigwise: "I think we were making very slow, very dense and very beautiful music that we had no consideration to putting towards a Klaxons record - we were just exploring our craft and just exploring the fact that we were becoming songwriters.

"We weren't thinking about it in the sense of the second Klaxons record, we were just making weird music which we absolutely loved and are excited for people to hear."
