Bands will play from around 6pm, with Hung Like Hanratty expected on stage at around 10pm.

Front man Al Sation told Chad: “Getting signed was amazing and we’ve had some fantastic gigs recently, including supporting the Damned.

“It’s all down to the Chad really as a lot of people starting to follow us after we were in the paper, so we’re really grateful for that.

“I was in Whitby on holiday recently and I was wearing a Hung Like Hanratty t-shirt and this bloke came up and said, ‘they’re really good’.

“He was going on and on about us, but he didn’t seem to know I was the lead singer and I didn’t tell him.”

The band will also be performing as part of the Under Dogz Mansfield Punk Rebellion at the New Cross in November. For more details on releases and gigs, follow them on Facebook.
