Please welcome Craig Bartle to Under A Banner as our new bass player. Craig’s nuance and musicality has amazed us, especially as it felt like he had settled into the band within just a few minutes of his audition. It has been the most natural sounding addition that we have ever had and we are really excited about unveiling Craig to you in upcoming gigs and recordings.
Craig Bartle: “I knew when I saw the list of bands that had influenced Under A Banner that I had probably found the band that I had been looking for. A quick listen to some of their back catalogue confirmed it! Five minutes into my audition I knew this was a band I wanted to join… luckily they let me!”
Tim Wilson (drums and vocals): “Finding new band members is always difficult, especially with finding a replacement for Rich (former bass player) . So when Craig came to us, we were so glad he did. His playing style, tone and sensibility fits like a glove into our mix and we have loved every moment of having him play through our back catalogue.”
Adam Broadhurst (guitar and lead vocals): “He has locked into every hook, riff and beat with complete effortlessness. He’s also a lovely guy and shares so many of our collective influences. We can’t wait for you to meet him.”
We would like to take this time to thank Richard Corry and extend our gratitude to him for the great work he has done for us especially on the Riot EP, not to mention button down shirts (ladies!). We wish him every success for the future.
You will be able to see Craig and the band in action this Saturday 19th October 2019 at Local Authority in Sheffield with This Winter Machine, and again on Saturday 7th December 2019 with This Winter Machine and The Gift at Wolverhampton’s Slade Rooms.
Adam, Craig, Gareth and Tim. Under A Banner 18/10/19.
