YOUNG Kingskerswell band Hysteria have made their first impact across the pond in America.

Images of the group were used at the launch of the Brennan Rock and Roll Academy, South Dakota, attended by rock legend Alice Cooper.

The pictures were used on the shop front of the new music hub and several copies of the band's EP, titled On Holy Ground, were sent to the school for the young musicians to listen to.

The band - Josh and Kian Tozer, Zach and Ben Cornish and Maisie Shaw - were thrilled to be contacted by Kory Van-Sickle, who was helping to set up the school for under-privileged children.

He found Hysteria by searching online and liked their ethos and loved the images of them on stage. The photos, taken during a performance at Torquay Harbour, were snapped by Mike Peakman of Rainbow Starshine Photography.

"We all agreed that it would be a massive honour for the children to be seen to endorse such a great venture and exciting for them to know they are on show to other children in the USA," said Lauretta Tozer, mother of Josh and Kian.

Hysteria formed in 2010 and play popular covers of rock songs as well as writing and performing their own material. They've played at many charity gigs and wowed the crowds at the Summer Moon Festival, Kingskerswell, and at Lemonfest, Newton Abbot.
