Band set to release debut album

One of Northern Ireland's newest bands are set to release their debut album on Monday.

Portadown-based Microlip formed after a chance encounter in 2008 and produced a single called Man Of Steel to commercial success.

The pop and rock outfit will unveil their album Silver Lining.

A spokesman for the group said: "Due for release on August 29 2011, this is an album which cements Microlip's place as one of the finest bands to come from our fair shores and is certain to leave you wanting to hear more and more and more."

Microlip include musicians Jaime McDonald, Jamesy, Wilson, John Mulholland and Mick Carvill. They are influenced by a mixture of pop and rock from the present day to the 1980s and have played to audiences across Northern Ireland.

Man Of Steel was used by BBC Sport for its coverage of the rugby game between Ireland and Samoa, played before the international in Dublin last November.
