The group, fronted by Sheffield Wednesday supporter John McClure, reached the lofty heights of the UK top 10 singles charts when they broke onto the scene in 2008.

They have since supported bands such as Stone Roses, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Kasabian and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds over the years as well as performing at Glastonbury.

John has been promoting the release of the new album by performing private gigs at people’s homes across the country including Rotherham, Manchester, Leeds and Wakefield.

Due to popular demand, the band will perform two shows at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced from £12.
