CHORLEY band Starsailor are back with their third album On The Outside released on October 17 and are playing a special free show in Preston on October 21.

The melodic indie quartet will be at Action Records to play an acoustic set at 5pm then sign copies of their new album - even though frontman James Walsh used to work for rival music shop HMV in the city.

The band's two previous albums - 2001's Love Is Here and 2003's Silence Is Easy - both reached number two in the charts.

Starsailor play Action Records in Preston on Friday, October 21. Admission is free.
