Redfaces are Harry Lyon, from Dronfield, on vocal and rhythm guitar, his former school pals Charlie Yapp, of Chesterfield, on drums and Isaac White, of Sheffield, on bass, backing vocals and keyboards.
Fourth member of the band is Ryan Laycock, on lead guitar, who joined them last year.
They were signed over a year a go by Sony RCA while still at school and were launched as the city's best kept secret when they set the music world on fire with the release of their aptly named explosive debut single Kerosene.
The journey started at 2Fly studios in Sheffield, recording demos with Alan Smyth, the man behind the Arctic Monkey's first ventures.
Out of these sessions came the band’s first release, Katie Come Home, in early 2015 – also championed by BBC Introducing it attracted the attention of the London A&R fraternity, eventually signing with RCA last year.
RedFaces gave a storming performance at Community Festival this summer, had support slots with DMA’s and a headline tour, including a sold-out hometown show at Sheffield’s Plug,
The band also performed at Live at Leeds, The Great Escape, Dot to Dot, Isle of Wight, TRNSMT, Kendall Calling and Truck.
After playing the Dice Festival in Holland they have been busy on a UK tour this month with dates in Hull, Nottingham, Southampton, Bath, Chester, Liverpool and Manchester.
With each gig their audience is rapidly growing, and the band are showing no signs of slowing down.
