This Sunday we play arguably our biggest gig to date when we open for the mighty Simple Minds at Delamere Forest. Jim Kerr and the boys will be running through a set of greatest hits playing classics like ‘Alive & Kicking’, ‘Belfast Child’ and ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’.
The gig has long since been sold out and the weather looks set to be good so all in all we as a band cannot wait. It’s going to be rockin’!
We’d just like to thank everyone who came down to the Pretty Green in-store performances in London and Manchester this week. It was great to play our set stripped back in such an intimate and iconic environment.
Our debut single She’s A Rainbow is out today on iTunes. You can download it from the link below.

Massive thanks to everyone involved at the Future Perfect Festival at Castlefield Arena, Manchester. Let’s hope we all raised a substantial amount of money for Christies Cancer in memory of Lee Wyatt.
Finally we’d like to say thanks to Miss Manchester herself Rowetta for agreeing to collaborate with us, and close her headline set with The Prodigal. It was a knock-out performance.
