Scottish rockers Twin Atlantic will be bringing their swagger across the UK in the second half of May. They’re sure to be playing tracks from their 2016 album ‘GLA’, which Carrie reviewed here, as well as bringing old favourites. Hard to believe, but they released their debut album ‘Free’ back in 2011.

Following your various overdoses on ham, roasts and other things over the Easter bank holiday, we thought you might like to win something.
