A band formed in Diss two years ago are set for the biggest opportunity in their short musical careers so far when they support established rockers Young Guns on part of their UK tour next month.

Chasing Creation, which comprises of Will How on drums, 19, Ethan Keens-Soper, 20, with lead vocals and guitar and Matt Cranswick, also 20, on bass, were formed while the trio were studying at Diss High School.

Described as an indie/rock/funk outfit, they will be the support act when Young Guns perform at The Aquarium in Lowestoft on Friday, October 16 at 7.30pm.

Drummer Will, who lives in Diss, says the band take their musical influences from a “vast spectrum” including The Who, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arctic Monkeys and Eric Clapton, and see the show as a huge opportunity to further their careers.

After gigging locally shortly after their formation, they have played venues including the Norwich Waterfront, with a crowd of 150 their largest to date.

The band was chosen to support Young Guns after emerging victorious at a ‘Battle of the Bands’ style event at the Suffolk Owl Sanctuary earlier this month.

“When we first started out, we did not really know each other,” he said.

“We all played instruments, we jammed together and did not really talk much.

“It was incredible when we found out we were supporting Young Guns.

“It was a huge reaction and we went out and celebrated.

“It was a huge sense of excitement and we are really looking forward to it.

“Two years ago we would not have expected something like this to come up and we are really lucky.

“The hard work we have been putting in has paid off.

“This is going to be the biggest thing we have done.

“All bands around want to get somewhere and we are really going to push ourselves to make something of ourselves. That is the ultimate dream.”
