Hailing from Dundee, The Law formed initially to write and play songs as a means of venting frustration at birds and bosses. The results showed it was well worth the agony. Consisting of Stuart Purvey (vocals), Stevie Anderson (guitar), brothers Martin Donald (drums) and Simon Donald (bass), the band are firm favourites amongst a city finding itself buoyant with rock'n'roll belief and desire.

The band's indie single releases in 2007 saw The Law breach the official UK independent charts, gaining recognition in the NME and national airplay on Radio 1 and XFM. Fast forward a couple of years and their debut album, A Measure of Wealth, is all wrapped up and pencilled in for release on 28 September 2009 through the band's own label Local Boy Records.

Slots with fellow Dundonians The View on their UK tours have introduced the band to a wider audience, as have appearances with Air Traffic and The Rascals. Live performances by The Law are high energy, often raucous affairs, reminding you just how rock concerts should be: loud, packed and sweaty with anthemic tunes and a strong sense of camaraderie.
