The Forensics provide an alternative to those looking to escape the same old, same old. Despite the shadow cast by an impeccable lineage of bands hailing from neighbouring cities Manchester and Liverpool, the band plan to carve out their own path and put Lancashire firmly on the map.
Since the formation of the band in late 2021, the Lancashire based four-piece have gained a loyal following through high-energy gigs that would be suited to a stage of any size.
Red Heathers are a four piece band from Manchester, formed in 2019 after a house party where all the band watched a film on in the background.

Influences of The Wombats, Two Door Cinema Club, Black Box Revelation & Surf Curse, this band brings a blend of distorted pop & alternative rock to every gig they play.
