12-year-old Zach, 15-year-old Finn and 18-year-old Josh Pile from St Albans started what is now the band Princes to Kings to help their brother Luke, who has a severe form of epilepsy and lives in care.

They were previously called Purple Day, after the annual awareness day for epilepsy, and have promised to give a percentage of all of their earnings to the Epilepsy Society.

Finn said: “The cause is really close to our hearts.

“So far we have done shows around St Albans and recently we have got signed with a manager, This show is the biggest gig we have ever done.”

The band will be playing at Camden Assembly in London on Sunday, March 25 and all ticket money will go to the Epilepsy Society.
