Four Glasgow bands are set to go head-to-head for a chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to New York, a cash prize and an opportunity to perform in front of leading music industry executives.

Following a submission round in December, The Asuras, Sara 'N' Junbug and Chris Greig & The Merchants have been chosen to compete at Hard Rock Cafe's Battle of the Bands competition.

A fourth act, which is yet to be announced, will also perform at the Buchanan Street restaurant on Friday, April 5.
