ELY rockers Mallory Knox have signed a record deal with the Sony Music-backed label Search and Destroy.

The five-piece band, Mikey Chapman, Joe Savins, Sam Douglas, Dave Rawling and

James Gillett, were formed in 2009 and have enjoyed a steady rise to stardom since then.

From playing gigs in pubs and venues around Cambridgeshire in their early days, the band now feature regularly on national radio stations and they are preparing to play sets at both Reading and Leeds music festivals in the summer.

A spokeman for Search and Destroy said: “With their debut full length Signals under their belts and endless love for them on UK radio this year, we’re ready to bring on the future with these guys.”

A statement on the band’s website read: “Absolutely delighted to tell you all we have signed with Sony Music with Search & Destroy Records! Thank you all for all of your support, here’s to the future!”

The band’s debut album Signals was released in January this year and reached number 33 in the UK charts.
