Rock away this bank holiday; SUIU BAR & THE STORYTELLERS, STOCKTON.

TEESSIDE is gearing up for a weekend of bank holiday sounds with live music designed to set the place rocking.

A string of exciting bands is heading to Stockton for Sunday Live - returning to Ku Bar and The Storytellers for a second year.

Wolf Alice, Circa Waves, Wild Cub, As Elephants Are and Natives are amongst the acts that will line up at Sunday Live in Stockton on May 4 - headliners Wolf Alice have also been confirmed to play at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

The London foursome is leading the way in the current Brit pop revival seeping into the airwaves with music designed to capture youthful joys and adolescent angst in one swoop, with breathy verses and raucous choruses.

Major buzz band Circa Waves, who arrive in Stockton after a European tour, will also perform at KU.

The infectious indie-popgarage-rock weaving Liverpool four piece have already caused a tidal wave with their first sing gle, 'Get Away.' l ' The Storytellers will be headlind by Nashville, Tennessee act Wild Cub and pop-punk quintet Natives land at Sunday LIVE on the back of a headline Ltour of the UK and the release of their highly anticipated debut album Indoor War.

Newcastle identical twins Daniel and Graham Ross, a.k.a Gallery Circus, will lash out their abrasive blues-rock along with the 90s inspired guitars and stuttering drums of Teesside band Mouses.

"Last year's Sunday Live was a brilliant night. The 1975 blew the crowd away and went on to have a number one album and are now playing venues like the Royal Albert Hall.

"We can see acts like Wolf Alice, Circa Waves and Natives going on to do similar, so bringing them to Teesside on one bill is really exciting," said Jimmy Beck, of Ku and Storytellers.

Sunday Live tickets are PS9 adv, www.kubar.co.uk for more information
