A ROCK band from Rugby who have achieved great success in the small amount of time they have been together are through to the semi-finals of a nationwide competition.

Morningstar battled their way through to the quarter-finals of the Surface Festival earlier this month and will now be performing in the English semi-finals of the competition at the Asylum in Birmingham on July 15.

Along with a judging panel on the night, which features Alex Baker from Kerrang, points will also come from the amount of votes cast for Morningstar from members of the public. If the band get through to the final they will be playing at the O2 in London.

Morningstar, featuring Beth Tysall (vocals), Steve Franklin (lead guitar and vocals), Chris Franklin (bass guitar), Mike Ingram (rhythm guitar) and Phil Larrassey (drums), have also got a new CD coming out next month which they are hoping will be on iTunes.

To vote for the band to help them through to the finals of the Surface Festival text ‘midland 3009’ to 64342.
