The four vegan or vegetarian members of the band are saving the lives of more than 400 animals every year and discovering a world of vegan foods in the process. “If you like cooking, you can try new foods,” suggests Alex. “I know since being vegetarian there’s a lot of things that I tried that I wouldn’t have necessarily done if I hadn’t been vegetarian.”
