On Fridays West Herts Drivetime we were thrilled to interview Joe Washbourn and Dan Hipgrave of Toploader!

They spoke to Nick Hazell who is in the WHD hot-seat for Danny about their new album – Only Human which is out on Monday 6 June and the new single – Balance of All Things.

The guys hail from Eastbourne, East Sussex and formed Toploader in 1997. They had a string of chart hits including one of the sounds of 2000 – Dancing in The Moonlight. They decided to break up in 2003 after the demise of their record label, but have now after eight years got back together to release their new album – Only Human.

Joe and Dan chatted to Nick about the making of the new album, which was completed at the end of last year and they said that it has a slightly different feel to it than their previous albums but it is great that the fans have grown along with the band.

Joe is also appearing on ITV's Pop Star to Opera Star with contemporaries such as as Andy Bell, Jocelyn Brown and Midge Ure. The WHD Team wish him all the best!

Toploader are festival favourites and will be playing the Kasbah Festival in Coventry on June 18 and Summer Terrace Festival in Swindon on July 2.
