The band, which formed in 2015, were recently named as the next big thing on the music scene by the Virgin Atlantic airline, winning the chance of a lifetime to perform at the legendary Roxy Theatre in Hollywood.

Lyerr will also be playing at Empire on the weekend of the Feel Good Festival, their first gig in Rochdale.
