Local Labour MP, Gregg McClymont.

ONE Cumbernauld band may soon find themselves playing it big after a nomination from the town’s MP, that will see one of the four-piece band’s tracks played to some UK music world big-wigs. 

Labour MP for Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East nominated Cumbernauld band, ‘D3vilmaycry’, as part of the Rock the House competition; a competition which could see the local lads headlining  some of the country’s most prestigious venues, including the Houses of Parliament and Liverpool’s Cavern Club.

The band’s lead singer, Ryan Patterson, said the band was excited to be nominated.

Ryan said: “It’s not every day you get the chance to play a gig in Parliament so I was happy to hear that Gregg put us forward.”
