Florence Welch is suffering from Caffeine withdrawals, and is feeling pretty damn tired as a result of it.
After sustaining a vocal injury that forced her to cancel a couple of festival appearances, Welch is cutting out all sorts of stuff from her diet to make sure she doesn’t suffer the same thing again.
This includes banning caffeine and alcohol from her system – and naturally, the absence of the former is making her rather sleepy.
“I feel so tired, it’s awful!” Welch told Spinner.
“I don’t drink so much on tour anyway so that’s okay, but it’s the caffeine that’s addicting and not having Diet Coke is getting to me!”
We hear you Florence. When it comes to smashing a few drinks after shows, Welch and the band aren’t going hard there either.
“We haven’t been drunk in three, maybe four weeks, though, which really just means less blowouts,” she said.
Just recently, Welch announced that she is taking 12 months off at the end of the band’s current tour to recharge the batteries.
Once she’s had a bit of time for herself, she plans to start work on a new album.
“There’s a big ‘take a year off plan’,” Welch told Style magazine. “The record company have put no pressure on me for the next album. They’ve said I can have as long as I want.”
