They are one of only 23 bands left in the UK competing for a prize of £10,000 of studio recording time. Voting has already started at http://www.samsung.com/uk/mobilelive/monte/judge-for-yourself.html (click onto Merry Hill Dudley and vote for THE YIPES) voting closes on 20th June.
THE YIPES are currently in 7th position and it would be absolutely awesome if we could show the UK that a Telford band can win this.
