FORMER Ballarat residents Michael and Gabriel Saalfield aka The Royce Twins have released a special single for their fans this festive season.
Entitled Suzie Royce, the track is set to feature on the duo's budding debut EP.
The brothers said the song, named after their late mother, was dedicated to all those people who had ever lost someone special.
"Christmas for most people is a time of cheer and celebration. But that's not always the case when you've lost someone important in your life or are away from someone you love," the twins said.
"If you're feeling a little over the holiday cheer, please know that we dedicate this Christmas Gift to you."
Having launched their Pozible crowdfunding campaign this month, The Royce Twins are well on the way to achieving stardom status.
Performing regularly in Ballarat at venues such as The George Hotel and JDs Sports Bar, the former X Factor contestants have continued to expand their fan base since they first appeared on the reality show and are hoping for support from local fans.
Setting a target of $40,000, the twins said the money raised would go towards such things as mixing, mastering, recording, promoting and distributing their debut EP.
Depending on the amount pledged, backers will receive rewards such as an autographed copy of the debut EP, access to band merchandise or a private meeting and show with the twins themselves.
