FOUR student rockers from Castell Alun High School in Hope are hoping to follow in the footsteps of other great Welsh bands.
Lead guitarist Ben Guy, of Penyffordd, rhythm guitarist Chris Lewis, of Caergwrle, bass guitarist Mike Smith, of Penyffordd and drummer Danny Homes, of Caergwrle, met at school and formed their band, Corruption, last summer.
The band has played a number of gigs already.
In school the boys have played to an audience of 1,300 as well as some smaller crowds.
Word has spread quickly and the band is now being booked for gigs on a regular basis. Their latest booking is for a charity festival in Shrewsbury.
The boys are keen rockers, but say they also mix a little blues into their programme. They have a great number of musical influences, both old and new, and name bands like Guns 'n' Roses, Queen, Blink 182 and Green Day among their idols.
Andrew Searson, head of music at Castell Alun, said: 'There can be little doubt the band has potential. I'm sure they have the right attitude and the ability to go on to greater things.'
Ben said: 'We love our music and get a real buzz out of performing, whether for a few friends or a hall full of people. 'The band get on really well together and our immediate aim is to get more gigs a little further afield and get the name Corruption better known.'
Chris Lewis added: 'We'd love a future in professional music, but we're just establishing ourselves at the moment and taking one step at a time.
'School has been very supportive of our group and we'd like to thank all concerned for the many opportunities we've had to play concerts there already.'
