Press Release (February 2018): Under A Banner launch crowdfunding campaign and single, Light Breaks Through for their upcoming EP Riot.
Hot off the press. We are delighted to welcome Rich Corry to Under A Banner as our new bass player. Rich is a fantastic musician and we’re overjoyed to have him on board ahead of our Spring and Summer tour dates.
The spirit of New Model Army’s music and approach are a pivotal influence on us and it is a big privilege to be opening for them, especially in a local venue as esteemed as The Robin 2.
Please show your support for this special evening by purchasing tickets from The Robin 2 website and we look forward to seeing you there.
UNDER A BANNER – THE WILD PLACES – RELEASE DATE AND PRE-ORDERS NOW OPEN.
Pre-orders are now open for ‘The Wild Places’, the new album from Midlands-based rock band Under A Banner ahead of its release on 30th September.
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.
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 EP ‘Victory Time’, was awarded a five-star review and the coveted accolade of EP of the Month by Ryan’s Gig Guide, and its tracks have had considerable airplay on local radio stations.
‘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.
