THEY started the year as tour support to The Blackout, and are now rounding off a headline stint of their own.

On Wednesday night the Sonic Boom Six tour bus parks up at The Craufurd Arms.

We get the band in the same week as their new single Keep on Believing hits the racks – it’s out on Monday.

“Personally this is my favourite song off the album as it reminds me of when I got into music and bands and how passionate and positive music can make you feel,” front woman Laila K says of the new issue.

Radio 1 approved, and with a warmly received second album doing good things, SBS are on the up and up.

Catch a well-oiled live machine in peak condition from 7.30pm.

The ‘concise and lean collection of pop gems’, produced by Elbow duo Guy Garvey and Craig Potter, is enchanting, essential and up for grabs in this week’s competition.
