Tomorrow We Radio are a five-piece alternative rock band from Darlington.

Inspired by rock band Hundred Reasons, the band became best friends after meeting each other in school and college.

Forming just under two years ago, they are hoping for a successful future: "We haven't won any trophies as a band and we haven't been tipped as the next best thing by Simon Cowell, but what we are doing every day is working hard to engrain ourselves into the music scene - the same scene we've grown up admiring and longing to be a part of."

Currently they are putting the finishing touches to their latest recordings which will be released as singles later in the year.

"There are few things better than getting in a room with your best friends and playing music, and we all say the same.

"It's a great release to have, a great source to focus time and energy on. We could be having a horrible day for a number of reasons but if we have practice, or a gig, it's just the best remedy." said vocalist Chris.

'Another planet'

Made up of Chris Laycock (vocals), Lee Raisbeck (guitar), James Denham (guitar and synth), Robson Michaels (bass) and Ollie Buckett (drums), the band are proud to be playing festivals with bands they admire, and gigs in their home town.

Chris said: "We haven't done anything landmark as a band yet, we feel that's still to come.

"What we are really proud of is the bands that we've been able to play with so far, some of the best up and coming bands from around the country such as Failsafe, Scholars, Random Hand and Proxies."

The band are now looking forward to a summer of gigs and festivals and playing with Robb Blake, the lead singer of the band Whitmore:

"They've long since broke up so we're going to be his backing band for a song or two, which we're over the moon about - we're big fans.

"It's stuff like that which really hits home, makes it all feel real - playing music with someone who when we were 14 and 15 seemed untouchable, as if they were from another planet," added Chris.

Tomorrow We Radio are now putting the finishing touches to some new recordings which they are planning to promote later in the year.
