Sheffield’s production line of rock/indie bands continues to produce more upcoming acts.

Following in the footsteps of bands like The Sherlocks and The SSS, we now have The Wired.

Starting out as a sixth-form project at the city’s All Saints Catholic High School, the quartet are developing a unique sound and a growing following – both locally and across the country as the number of gigs away from their home turf grows, with the likes of Manchester, Glasgow and more in their sights.

Last week saw the release of their new single Summer Sun and on Saturday they follow that up with a sell-out gig at The Leadmill before shooting off around the UK – including a show at London’s legendary 100 Club supporting Simon Townshend – who joined his famous brother and The Who guitarist Pete on stage for The Who’s headline set at the world-famous Glastonbury Festival on Sunday.

The band are definitely one to watch out for.
