The five strong band have beaten hundreds of other hopefuls and have made it through to the final stage of the competition and as one of just six finalists.

The band is now one step closer to following in the footsteps of Ipswich-band Rosalita and becoming one of the two winning acts that will get to kick start the V Festival this summer, in Chelmsford and Stafford on August 22 and 23.

Underline the Sky formed a year ago and have played more than 150 shows and made it to the Top 20 of the MySpace music charts.
