Mansfield band For The Girl are looking to build on a successful 2015 with an even better 2016.

The five-piece indie outfit can look back on the busy year just finished with plenty of satisfaction.

For The Girl were involved in three tours, supporting bands such as Young Kato and play some of their dream venues such as Rescue Rooms and King tuts.

They will now get chance to add to that list of top venues when they can be seen at the 02 Academy Leeds, when they play in the final of the prestigious SoundWaves music competition on Saturday, January 16.

Josh King from the band said: “We are very pleased to reach the final as we have reached the final 12 of 300 acts that have entered. We really want to go on and win this competition and make our home town proud.”

For The Girl are also recording a brand new EP and have more gigs lined up, so for more on this rising band, go to
