The backstage scene nowadays when The Angels tour is in stark contrast to what it was like 30 years ago.
"Everyone's much more settled into what they do and what they have to do," Angels singer Dave Gleeson said.
"I think our backstage rider's bigger now than what it used to be back then.
"It has more things like cheese and Jatz and things like that, as opposed to Jack Daniel's and vodka."
The long-running Australian rock favourites will undertake a co-headlining tour of Australia with Baby Animals.
The bands have recorded their own versions of each other's songs for a limited single release.
The Angels recorded the smash hit One Word, and the Baby Animals tracked the cult classic Marseilles.
"So we'll be up there belting out each other's songs at some stage," Gleeson said. "And we all get along great."
Gleeson, who joined The Angels eight years ago and also fronts The Screaming Jets, said The Angels continued to record new material.
However, for vintage rock bands, announcing a new song live can often lead to many long-time fans heading to the bar or bathroom.
"In my first band we probably did 60 per cent covers and 40 per cent originals," the vocalist said.
"I learned very early on that if you say, 'this is one of our songs', that's what will happen.
"So you just slip them in, and don't make a lot of fanfare about it.
"If you don't say anything, you get halfway through the song before people realise, 'hey, this is a new song', and by then it's too late for them to take a piss or go to the bar," he laughed.
