The band are scheduled to travel down to London in early January to have a live music video made, which will be shown to over 1.5 million viewers on both the web and the national TV network SUB-TV which is displayed in every students union around the country.

The Awards are organised by Hutchison 3G UK Limited and aim to give recognition to the best in UK unsigned talent. In February, White Light Parade will be given a support slot at a top UK University and if they make it through the final 3 the band will be offered a mini UK tour support slot with one of the UK's hottest acts.
