Bryan said: "They're such a good live band - we're very, very honoured to be opening up the night for them.

"They're very respectful to the bands they take on tour and the importance of camaraderie is a big thing on their tours... We all like a good story and I think [Dave] Grohl is one of the very best storytellers around. We have a lot of fun backstage, lots of giggles."

Bryan also added that she is intrigued to see what effect The Joy Formidable's inclusion on the Twilight: Breaking Dawn soundtrack will have on the band.

She explained: "They've always had great artists before and their soundtracks are always very, very strong. And they support new bands as well.

"In our flatmate's office, there are some people who are ridiculously excited. A lot of them are middle-aged women, apparently. We'll wait and see if the guys [in the band] get a huge female admiring."
