Meanwhile, the four piece - founder William East, on lead guitar, Daz Cadwallander, on vocals and rhythm guitar, Sam Bennett, on bass and rhythm guitar and Jordan McLean, on drums - have been writing, recording and gigging.

Daz, who provides the band's deep and gravelly vocal tones and is heavily involved in the songwriting, told how the band formed by chance in Sheffield last year playing at an acoustic night for radio's BBC Music Introducing host Christian Carlisle

"William and I played solo at the time," he said.

"With an interest in similar music we decided to have a jam and started to write songs right away.

"We have since formed into a four piece with a mix of songs and are hard at work gigging, recording and pushing further all while we have full time jobs.

"Our favourite gig to date was playing at the O2 Academy in Sheffield earlier this year.

"But our largest headline gig to date will be at Cafe Totem in February when we will also be releasing our upcoming album.

"All tracks on the album are home produced and we have been focusing on this."
