Manager Michael Drewry, said: 'They've been together now for almost four years, and they've played venues all over Britain. This upcoming tour has to be one of the biggest though. It's such an honour for them.

'They've worked really hard, and we built them a recording studio in the bottom of our garden to rehearse. It's right next to Dereham graveyard, so we've no fear of annoying the neighbours!'
