East Fremantle�s Matt Murphy and Josh Gallagher, North Fremantle�s Ross Mace and Floreat�s Chet Morgan might still be toiling away in high school, but that has not stopped the group making a name for themselves with their indie band Figurehead.

They will compete in the semi-finals of the competition on Friday; one of 10 bands left from the 207 entrants.

Only two bands from each of the two semi-finals will make it into the grand final.

Lead singer Matt said making it into the final 10 was a big honour, and gave them the chance to compete for the $10,000 first prize.

�It�s just awesome to be able to play alongside some of our favourite WA bands like Foam and The High Leary�s, who we�ll be competing with at The Big Splash gig at The Rosemount Hotel,� he said.

Figurehead compete in the second semi-final at the Rosemount Hotel on August 7.
