    Tom said: “Wigan has got to be up there as one of the shows we’re most looking forward to, it’s sold out already which is amazing and we haven’t played their in a good while.

    “On our last tour so many cities caught us off guard and were nothing like we had expected, we’ve never done Sheffield either so we can’t wait to experience it. We hope everyone that comes to see us leaves the show and thinks ‘wow’.

    "We’ve certainly matured in the music scene over the last couple of years which has helped us grow, when we started out we were still trying to figure out the direction we wanted to go in.

    “We’ve refined our style now and have an understanding of the music that we want to produce.”
