HALIFAX band If I Were King have joined the likes of Method Man and Editors by having one of their tracks featured on a hit new computer game.
The six-piece indie group are the only unsigned band to have a song included on the soundtrack of new XBox360 game Saint's Row.
The game, which came out on September 1, was number one in the gaming charts and is set to be the top release of 2006.
It is a racing game which set in fictional American city, Stilwater.
The player is a gang member trying to rise through the ranks.
The game features an online multi-player experience for up to 12 gamers on X-Box Live.
It features If I Were King's track Cauterise, alongside songs from top artists like Method Man, Editors, De La Soul, Jane's Addiction and Idlewild.
Vocalist Luke Broadbent, drummer Jim O'Keefe and guitarist brother Tom O'Keefe, violinist Gavin Wilson, guitarist Ryan Wilkinson and bass player Ryan Wilby were approached by game makers THQ after Cauterise received extensive airplay on Chicago radio station WKQX - the third largest alternative radio station in the USA.
WKQX were alerted to the existence of If I Were King after Cauterise was played on Radio 1 and XFM in Britain.
An American DJ picked up their song through Radio 1's One Music website, which featured the band for over a month.
Riding on the back of this success, If I Were King are set to play their first ever London gig this month.
They will be at the Water Rats Theatre near Kings Cross on October 19.
They will then do a gig on homeground at Bar 1 Twenty in Huddersfield on October 27.
This will be a warm-up gig to get them ready for Manchester music festival In The City.
The festival has a name for breaking big new bands and If I Were King will be taking part with a gig at Teasers on Deansgate in Manchester on October 29.
