Rising Sheffield stars The SSS took to the stage for a sell-out show at the city’s legendary rock venue The Leadmill.

And they did not let the venue – or themselves – down.

The quintet – singer Josh Coddington and guitarist Tom Forster, from Stannington, guitarist Morgan Somers and bassist Cal Atherton, from Grenoside, and drummer Max Smith, from Wharncliffe Side – sold out the city centre’s second room in the band’s biggest gig to date.

The audience may have been predominantly friends and family, but they were still treated to an excellent show led by Coddington’s excellent vocals.

In truth, the band’s stage presence and audience interaction needs work and the gig, at just eight songs, was far too short for a headline slot.

But their sound and songs – particularly single and set-closer Morning Light – suggest there is a lot more to come these five Steel City youngsters.

Catch The SSS at Plug, Sheffield city centre, on Friday, supporting Hurricane #1 - for tickets see www.the-plug.com
