THE MIGHTY mighty Newtones are bringing their singular riffs and rhythms to Biggleswade this week. And it's all in aid of charity.
Although only together since January, the four-piece have already notched up some impressive performances with crunching drum beats and distinctive vocals.
Their spot at Biggleswade United Football Club is yet another chance to build up the fanbase but also an opportunity for fans to dig deep in their elasticised pockets and pull out a few pence in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Vocalist and guitarist Lee said: "We were asked by a close mate and fan of the band to play in aid of Cancer Research UK. It's an important day for us and we feel very happy to be doing something for an important cause."
The lads have taken time out of a busy June schedule to play the gig for the charity this Saturday, June 3, from 8pm.
"We've got some quite big things coming up, we're looking at recording and releasing our first single soon, and we've also got a few big gigs coming up in June.
