Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Man Admits Role In Drive-by Shooting -

RUN­CORN band The Fire­flys’ of­fi­cial sales fig­ures are now just over a quar­ter of a mil­lion (300,0000 sales/ streams) and they have taken stock of what they’ve achieved over the last 11 years.

They’ve played are­nas, sta­di­ums, acade­mys, the­atres and pubs, they have had their mu­sic played on MUTV, in Old Traf­ford Sta­dium, That’s Manch­ester TV, Bay TV Liver­pool, Made In Liver­pool TV, BBC 6 Mu­sic, BBC Ra­dio Liver­pool, Manch­ester, Stoke, Lan­cashire and Lon­don, as well as ra­dio City in Liver­pool and not to men­tion thou­sands of col­lege ra­dio sta­tions around the globe. They have had six num­ber ones on Ama­zon, iTunes and had three top 20 al­bums on Ra­dio Caro­line’s of­fi­cial al­bum charts and have hit the top 10 in the Aus­tralian, South African and Cana­dian Charts.

Many blogs and on­line mag­a­zines have writ­ten favourably about them, in­clud­ing Louder Than War, Lizzie’s Low­down, The Faulkner Re­view and Stereo Stick­man.

They have had four sin­gles on the cover of Fire­works mag­a­zine’s cover CD which is avail­able world­wide.

But the jewel in the crown is that they have been hon­oured with their own beer.

Blue­ball Brew­ery in Run­corn has worked closely with the band and have cre­ated a golden ale that is ‘nice and light’ at 4% and called it ‘Northen Lights’ af­ter the band’s up­com­ing fifth al­bum Only Us, North­ern Lights out on Straw­berry Moon records this com­ing Spring.

The of­fi­cial launch of the beer will be at the Win­ter­fest fes­ti­val on De­cem­ber 1 at the Run­corn christ­mas mar­kets at the Un­lock Run­corn com­pound op­po­site Len­ster Gar­dens which will fea­ture a live set from the band.

The beer will also be avail­able at So­ci­ety Tap Rooms Lim­ited in Dukesfield.
