ROCK band Shakeys Brother are aiming to top the charts and inspire England’s footballers to World Cup glory in Rio this summer.
The band’s manager, Michael Chancer, from Astley Bridge, hopes the track, England Til I Die, will be adopted by fans as their anthem for the tournament.
The indie-pop band, whose members hail from Bolton, Burnley and Blackburn, have visited all 92 Premier League and Football League stadiums in the UK to promote the track.
The song was originally conceived before the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but the band could not release it in time.
Four years on, Shakeys Brother have had more time to prepare and hope the upbeat track can help Roy Hodgson’s team lift the trophy.
England Til I Die features the band members having a kickabout in a park on a sunny day wearing England shirts, and cuts to clips of England’s most iconic World Cup moments.
Michael Owen’s wonder goal against Argentina in 1998, Paul Gascoigne’s tears at the 1990 semi-final with West Germany and players’ celebrations following the 1966 triumph are all featured in the music video.
