The band made their debut at the Fylde Road pub as far back as 2006 when they were still teenagers.

Since then, they have been busy, winning the Blackpool Evening Gazette’s Rock Quest contest in 2008 and playing several major festivals including T In The Park.

They appear with support from Preston’s own indie rockers The Escobars, who have supported Twisted Wheel and Joe Carnall and the Book Club among others.

They will be making their debut at the Mad Ferret at this show.

And opening up proceedings will be Prestonian rock and roll four piece, Black Vipers. Doors open at 8pm and entry is free.
