International rock band Muse, The Helen Foundation - a new arts-based charity for young people in south Devon - and the Eden Project are pleased to announce that Hey Molly have won the competition to support Muse at their Eden Session on Tuesday 22 August.
The Devon four-piece saw off more than 80 unsigned acts and bands from across the south west. They will now perform in front of a sell-out crowd of 5,500 at what promises to be one of the best Eden Sessions in the gigs five-year history.
Hey Molly formed in late 2004 and members hail from Kingskerswell, Newton Abbot, Paignton and Teignmouth Muses home town. Renowned for their energetic live performances, their repertoire comprises catchy rock'n'roll tunes tainted by blues, punk and the odd bit of ska.
Jordan West, lead guitarist and vocalist with Hey Molly, said: Were totally stoked at the news. This is a dream come true for us. We were losing sleep in the run up to the announcement but now were all over the moon, especially our drummer Rob who is a massive Muse fan.
The second support act for the Muse Session will be soulful pop-punkers Nixon and the Burn. Also hailing from Devon, they have previously bagged high-profile support slots with the likes of The Arctic Monkeys, Dirty Pretty Things and Seth Lakeman.
