American rockers The Bravery have advised fans to bring a date to their upcoming gigs - because they'll be whipped into a "sexual frenzy".

The AN HONEST MISTAKE hitmakers, who are playing at Britain's V Festival this weekend (begs20AUG05), are experimenting with new antics to make their gigs more exciting.

Frontman SAM ENDICOTT says, "We're always trying to find ways to make the gigs better.

"The live show is different to the record.

"Basically, what we do is try to get our audiences laid.

"My advise for anyone coming to see us - bring a date.

"We'll whip them into a sexual frenzy and hopefully you can take advantage of that."
