Band prepare for competition with school gig

A BAND from Morpeth who will perform at the 02 Academy this week have been practising to a smaller audience.

We Found Nemo tried out their set on students from Years 7 and 8 at the town’s Newminster Middle School ahead of their academy performance on Friday in The Idols Tour, part of a national battle of the bands competition.

It consists of 30 shows throughout the UK where artists are competing for the ultimate recording prize.

We Found Nemo will be playing their own material, including So Long Have a Good One and the impressive Walk of Shame, which had Newminster pupils all joining in, plus a couple of selected cover numbers.

The band will be back at the academy on Bank Holiday Monday, June 4, when they will be supporting No Lights at Lockdown.
