Di Martino said the duo will not be employing session musicians while on tour, arguing that they are powerful enough as a live act already.
"We get a bit of flak for just being a duo and not having a bassist," Di Martino told the Daily Star. "But I think less is more.
"Being in a duo you have that feeling that you have to give 110% every night, you can't have a bad gig or rely on anyone else except yourself."
He continued: "We're fans of bands like The White Stripes and The Dresden Dolls, who are a duo but have enormous energy - even Nirvana, who admittedly had three members, made a big noise."
The percussionist also revealed that the band have slowed down their partying lifestyle since heading out on tour.
"We used to keep going till 10am but now we're on the road we have to be sensible and have a few early nights," he said.
