Acclaimed Midlands based hard rock folk band Under A Banner released their third album, The Wild Places, to much critical acclaim last September, the first album after being signed to Bad Elephant Music.
Incorporating a heady blend of influences from across the musical spectrum, Under A Banner combine intelligent composition with Adam Broadhurst’s coruscating lyrics, producing a hard, uncompromising sound with powerful injections of raw emotion.
The band have embarked on a 20+ date tour across the UK through the Spring and Summer playing with the likes of New Model Army, Headsticks, The Leylines and Ferocious Dog.
Their previous releases have received considerable acclaim:
– their 2014 album Close to the Clouds was described by Liverpool Sound and Vision as “an album of great maturity and depth”, and Midland Mosh praised their “great vocals, talented musicians, and a nice unique style”.
– Under a Banner’s fourth official release, the 2015 EP Victory Time, was awarded a five-star review and the coveted accolade of EP of the Month by Ryan’s Gig Guide.
The band have had considerable airplay on national and international radio stations including Planet Rock which culminated in a standout performance at 2016’s Planet Rockstock weekend.
The Wild Places raises the bar even higher, with a much bigger sound stage, produced by Alistair Jamieson at Park Studios in Birmingham, and mastered by Jon Astley, who has worked with The Who, Peter Gabriel, The Rolling Stones and many others.
Be sure to catch them on the road in 2017.
