Highly touted London four-piece Storms have announced their first major headline gig at London's KOKO on October 4th. The band are also finalising plans to release their first recordings - in the form of an EP - more news on that to follow shortly.
Having forged their reputation with a string of exciting shows in and around the capital, the band have quickly built up a strong word of mouth following. They will continue to build on that around the rest of the country in the coming weeks and months, starting with a UK tour as special guests to Broken Hands. The tour begins in Bristol on September 18th.
