Mr Fennell said the band would benefit from the deal in many ways, including getting more exposure in the mainstream media and on radio stations, which would hopefully lead to 'bigger things'.

Once the album has been released the band will look to tour next year but for now the four members all still hold down day jobs.

'For us the most important thing has been the funding side of the deal; that people have seen enough in us to invest. That sends a really positive message,' said Mr Fennell. 'We're hoping this will start opening more doors for us.'

He said while most of the band's following was based in the UK, some of their tracks were played on US radio stations.

'We have some following over there but closer to home we're popular down Ipswich way and Essex and have quite a good following around London too,' he said.

'I think there is still a place for hard rock – you don't hear or see about it a lot in the mainstream media but there is a following.'

Mr Fennell said they would be holding a 'home town gig' in Lowestoft at Zoo Bar on Claremont Pier on August 19 as part of Lowestoft Rocks. Doors open at 7.30pm, and tickets are £6 in advance or £7 on the door.
