The Joy Formidable have teamed up with Premier League football stars Emile Heskey, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Darren Bent for a new video which aims to stamp out gang culture in the UK.

The clip entitled 'No Postcodes' also features Toddla T, Embrace, Labrinth and Chase and Status. It was shot to help a group of disadvantaged youngsters campaign to stamp out gangs, guns and knives in the UK. Scroll down and click below to watch the video.

The clip shows the stars, members of the public and the police chanting the words 'No Postcodes' over a soundtrack by emerging producers FEA. The Joy Formidable meanwhile are set to feature on the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack. The compilation, which is released on November 8, features brand new song 'Endtapes'.

The band recently revealed that they have over 15 songs written for their second album and they plan to have the LP out by next year after they complete their touring commitments.

Frontwoman Ritzy Bryan said:

We have about 15 or 20 already, but lots of other bits too, there'll be lots to choose from when we eventually sit down and sort it out.
