The band, who have built up a large following thanks to festival performances, as well as support slots for The Sherlocks, Pigeon Detectives and Bad Manners, will release the first single from their EP on August 22.

Called ‘Two Wrongs Make a Riot’, the EP will feature five tracks as well as music videos.

Frontman and rhythm guitarist Keelan Graney said the band were really excited about their forthcoming release.

"The name of the EP itself comes from my hometown of Clay Cross,” he said. "Every day as a kid I walked past the phrase ‘two wrongs make a riot’ graffitied on a building and it just stuck with me.

"This is the first time we’ve made real production videos and it’s a concept we’ve really put a lot of thought and effort into..

"We recorded the video to the first song on the EP Say Something in the Barrel Pub on Chatsworth Road in Chesterfield.

"Say Something will be out on all major platforms from Saturday August 22.

"The rest of the EP will be staggered over the coming months with some really exciting content along the way, involving some familiar faces people may recognise.”

Keelan added: “The tracks on the EP all have their own individual meaning but they all culminate to create a story that continues throughout the EP.

"We can’t reveal too much quite yet but it will be something special when it’s all released.”

Earlier this year, The Rosadocs, frontman and rhythm guitarist Keelan Graney from Clay Cross, bassist Adam Sleight from Conisborough, Joe Egan from Rotherham on lead guitar and drummer Callum Raynor, from Barnsley, announced their first ever headline tour but this had to be put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.

That’s not stopped the band gaining new fans though.

"During lockdown we have seen our fan base grow incredibly,” Keelan said. “Streams and online demand for the band has skyrocketed.

"We’re very eager to get back out on the road and playing shows again.”
