Mouses set for slot on TV show.
INTERNATIONAL exposure beckons for Billingham band Mouses who are to appear in a new online music show for unsigned bands.
Shot in the North-east, The Unsigned Arch will be broadcast weekly, with each episode featuring a live performance by a different band.
Each episode will be filmed in front of a live studio audience and broadcast along with interviews and backstage footage.
Music producer Isaac Parker, creator of The Unsigned Arch, said: "We wanted to create a way for the North-east to shout about all the unsigned musical talent we have here and give international exposure to some of the amazing musicians in the region."
Mouses, a lo-fi punk rock duo, were formed last year by Billingham musicians Nathan Duff and Ste Bardgett playing as a guitar/drums duo format.
They have made two appearances at Stockton Calling and have recently launched their second EP - on Manchester based record label Sister 9. Said Nathan: "We're very glad we had the chance to get involved with The Unsigned Arch - great guys, great room and great equipment.
"They are really passionate and very keen to get lots of North-east acts out there with a high quality, live video - and the best interview questions we've ever been asked."
Some of the other acts that are also lined up to appear on The Unsigned Arch include singers Brent Hood and Charlie Dancer, two piece band Black Atom Movement and R&B three piece SoShe.
The Unsigned Arch has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help support the first year's production of the show, which aims to feature at least 25 musicians. The first episode of The Unsigned Arch will air in September.
