A LOCAL rock band is celebrating after securing a deal with a London based record label to release their first official single.

Forgotten Sons will unleash Leave The Light On digitally through Animal Farm Records on 10 November.

The band – which features Birdy Burgess, John Gair, Sandy Middleton and Craig Watt – will perform two gigs in Kirkwall in Orkney on 11 and 12 November to celebrate the release.

Burgess and Gair said: “It’s a dream come true. We have been working hard for the last couple of years writing our own songs.

“We have a company who believe we can make an impact on the music scene throughout Britain. It’s an unbelievable feeling.”

Forgotten Sons formed in 2015 with original bassist Danny Carter and they take influence from acts such as Alkaline Trio, The Gaslight Anthem and Biffy Clyro.
