INTRODUCING >> Centre Stage 2013 finalist: The Amazing Scuba Divers

Over the next seven days on the run-up to the CENTRE STAGE 2013 finals next Wednesday, I’m going to introduce each of the 11 finalists, who have all been helping to raise plenty of money for Martin House Children’s Hospice with their eyes on the prize – the chance to perform at the Leeds and Reading Festivals in August.

First up, THE AMAZING SCUBA DIVERS, four young lads from Leeds who, thanks to some marker pens and a little imagination, have made it on to the pages of the NME. Nice.

They’ve been working hard since the heats in April and are fundraising by taking part in the Leeds 10k this Sunday. To make things interesting, the band are going to be running in swimwear and goggles. They are The Amazing Scuba Divers, after all.

They’re also making some Scuba Divers tees, profits from which will also be going to Martin House. Nice one, lads!

There’s a new tune recently uploaded to Soundcloud – Sleeping Lions –  which you can check out by clicking the ‘play’ button on our fancy interactive picture above. Also on there are links to their Facebook page and to their JustGiving page so you can sponsor their 10k efforts and help them raise more cash for Martin House.

They really impressed me at the heats and I’m really looking forward to seeing them take the the O2 stage next Wednesday.

>> THE AMAZING SCUBA DIVERS are in the Centre Stage 2013 finals, along with ten other acts, at the O2 Academy Leeds on Wednesday, July 17. Tickets (£6.50/£4.50 NUS) are available HERE.
